20 minute myth and 4 minute miracle

One of the silliest CARDIO MYTHS that you hear in the gym is this:
 
"You have to exercise for 20 minutes before you burn fat."
 
That's ridiculous. It makes no sense. You are burning fat every single minute of every single day. Sometimes you are burning more fat than other times - like in the Afterburn period of today's 4-minute workout - but you are never not burning fat.
 
Of course, there are times when you are burning LESS fat than other times because of bad food combinations. If you want to lose as much fat as humanly possible in just 7 days, please read this article:
 
 
Yesterday morning, after I read that article (at the link above) and walked ol' Bally the Dog, I went out to the garage gym for a bodyweight workout. I did some handstand pushups and TRX rows, and then finished with a 4-minute bodyweight circuit. In 4-minutes you will boost your metabolism and burn over 15 calories per minute (not including the calories from the Afterburn!).
 
Your 4-Minute "Hump Day" Fat Burner 

1) Total Body Extension - 30 seconds
2) Prisoner Squat - 30 seconds
3) Close-Grip Pushup - 30 seconds (or Pushup Plank if you can't do pushups)
4) Split Squats - 30 seconds per side
5) Rocking Plank - 30 seconds
6) Mountain Climbers - 30 seconds
7) Burpees or Total Body Extensions - 30 seconds
 
I was loving this so much that I did 3 rounds of the circuit with a minute of rest between the circuit.
 
But you will still lose fat if you do just one 4-minute circuit and combine it with this diet.
 
Finish the week strong!
 
Fast and fun fat burning,

Stop dabbling. Get serious. Attack your #1 priority. Avoiding problems will not make the situation better. Take action and attack them head-on instead. Prepare for it tonight. Work on it first thing in the morning. Focus on big levers. Eliminate all else..."When you put one of your life's goals above all others, things change. Situations that used to seem complicated are suddenly simple." – Mark Ford ... Keep on pushing on! Never give up on solving the important problems in your life. You CAN do it!

From China, let’s go to South Africa where Hoodia is found. This plant looks like a cactus and it also has its own flowers. This plant has been studied to have a great fat burning ability. Hoodia works like proteins. It leaves a full feeling in the stomach even if you have not eaten yet. The compound of this plant has the same function like glucose but its power is 10,000 stronger. It focuses the central nervous system to send messages to the system to give it a full feeling. It transfers messages to the Central nervous system to make the stomach feel full. If the physique feels full, it may not for further demand nourishment from food thus minimizes the intake of carbs, sugar and calories. This diet supplement is available in the market and is still waiting its way to be consumed.
