Aerobic Exercise: Are You Using the Right Approach?
My first introduction to aerobic exercise was during football practice when I was a high school junior...and that was too many years ago to count.
This wasn't one of our favorite pastimes, and frankly we thought that he must be out of his mind.
It wasn't long however, before we discovered that these alternating intensity workouts dramatically improved our energy and performance.
Of the three key exercise variables…how often you exercise, how hard you work and how long you last, intensity has the most powerful effect.
Your body responds to short bursts of intensity by releasing a cascade of fat-mobilizing hormones and anti-aging growth hormones that supercharge your metabolism and burn extra calories for 24 hours or longer.
Here's a good example of the powerful effect of aerobic exercise intensity on heart health. A new study by British researchers tracked 1,975 healthy men over ten years.
The men who exercised the hardest had a 47% percent lower risk of death from all causes and a whopping 62% lower risk of death from heart disease, compared with those who reported very little or no intense exercise.
The best part however is that these benefits of aerobic exercise were achieved with as little as nine minutes per day of vigorous activity.
I'm Gene Millen. Twenty-one years ago a heart surgeon, sawed open my chest and stitched in bypasses to six of my favorite heart arteries.
It wasn't as much fun as you might think...and started me on a journey to helping others avoid my mistakes.
My experience in aerobic exercise and exercise weight loss includes working with hundreds of people in the Vital Life Center, a health and wellness club for the "over 50 crowd.
I thought I knew all the right aerobic exercise programs, but after trying Dr. Al Sears' new PACE® exercise program, it was soon apparent that there was more to learn.
This program is
extremely effective and takes far less time than the
"conventional" programs which coax you into spending hours in the
gym to achieve your goals.
Our ancient ancestors
didn't run for mile after mile without rest or recovery.
Their exercise was primarily hunting, or on some terrifying occasions being
hunted. Their daily exercise "routine" consisted of short bursts of
exertion, followed by periods of very welcome rest.
explains to us why endurance training ends up doing the
exact opposite of what our body was designed to do.
“Aerobics and Cardio Are DEAD”
Why is my colleague, Dr. Al Sears, MD, telling people to stop doing aerobics and cardio… throw away your jogging shoes… and skip the gym?
Could it be that traditional exercise is actually bad for you?
Could it be that if you practice aerobics or cardio, you’re actually making your lungs smaller and weaker?
This changes everything.
After 25 years of research, Dr. Sears has patented a revolutionary approach to fitness that’s easy to follow and gets results.
You can do this no matter what shape you’re in.
