Incredible Metabolism Boost #1

hand-holding-stopwatch

Did you know that sprint-based cardio is absolutely the best type of cardio to burn body fat and lose weight fast?

A University of New South Wales study found that women who undertook 8 seconds of sprinting on a stationary exercise bike, followed by 12 seconds of light cycling for 20 minutes, lost 3 times as much fat as women who perform continuous cardio for 40 minutes.

Now that’s good math!

The study further found that interval training burns fat not just from under your skin but also from within your muscles, making them tighter, tauter, and more toned.

Want To Know The Best Part?

According to the researchers, interval training is especially effective for weight loss on the legs and butt. Yay!

Does It Really Work?

Thus study just confirms what I already knew – endurance cardio just ain’t gonna cut it in a fat loss game when it’s up against intervals. When I first started working out in the gym I thought cardio was the way to go. After all, that’s what all the girls were doing. In a few years I became the cardio queen, doing at least an hour every day, and up to 4 or 5 hours when I was pre-competition for Body Sculpting.

Yes, I was insane.

I was certainly fairly skinny, but I had barely any muscle tone, and was pretty much wiped out all the time, which is also not a great look. Eventually the repetitive stress took its toll and I nearly developed patella tracking syndrome, a condition whereby the kneecap starts to head off the edge of the knee. In case you’re wondering, not so comfortable.

I was put on a cardio ban for 6 months, and as a result truly discovered weight training for the first time. (Thank God!). When I did get back to cardio I wanted to give this new idea a go. One of my friends had sworn by it for fat loss. It was called interval training and – get this – only required 20 or less minutes of exercise, alternating sprints with recovery period. I didn’t quite trust the idea, but thought I should at least try it. Can you guess what I found?

Why I Love Interval Training For Fat Loss

1. It’s more interesting than endurance training. You’ll work so hard during the sprint periods that the recovery time just flies by. Before you know it, 20 minutes have passed and you’re feeling the awesome glow of a truly intense workout.

2. You’ll save time. Loads of it. We’re all busy. Enough said.

3. You’ll build lean, sculpted muscle. Ever compared a marathon runner’s body to a sprinter’s? Which would you prefer – the haggard look, or the proud, lean look? Okay then.

4. You’ll save money on artificial joints later in life. Bikram Choudray, founder of Bikram Hot Yoga, has a quote that I love – “You can mess with the Gods, but you can’t mess with your knees”. Same thing goes for hips. Endurance cardio wears your body down. Interval training strengthens your body.

5. Interval training is especially effective for weight loss around the legs and butt! I know I already said this, but it’s just such a good one!

Have you tried interval training before? Which combination works best for you? As I tell my clients – there’s really no wrong way to perform intervals. In fact, it’s ideal to constantly change the variables. Incline sprints one day, flat the next. X-Trainer today, running tomorrow. You can also vary the length of the sprint and recovery time. Just don’t go over the 20 minute mark. If you’re working hard enough, you shouldn’t really be able to!

I HAVE SOME BIG NEWS TO SHARE!

As of today, I’m opening up the doors to my Inner Circle, my private client mastermind.

This is THE most badass high level mastermind in the world for women who want it all – and are prepared to do what it takes to get it! Really what we’re talking about is being prepared to be the PERSON.

And that’s what I do. I help you remember ALL that you were, and then become it. ALL Of it.

This is my highest level private mentoring circle. The exact place where I have personally mentored dozens of this industry’s most elite female entrepreneurs to break income barriers ranging from 10k months to multiple 7 FIGURE months, and everything in between. But more importantly than that – to become who and what they always were.

But know that this is not only (obviously) not just for the masses, this is also not just for someone who can afford to invest in a high level private coach. Being willing to throw money down is something which has absolutely zero correlation to being somebody who has what it takes to TRULY go next level as a leader.

If anything, in this industry, investing in a high level coach such as myself, is a rite of passage which veers just a little too much on the side of ‘trend’. It’s become something which ‘everybody does’, almost as a way of proving they play business and life a certain way.

Maybe even of trying to prove it to themselves.

Here is the reality which those who I am truly here to personally mentor and lead KNOW, the reality which my clients and all women like me as well as of course me personally have ALWAYS known:

We are VERY VERY DIFFERENT.

We are simply, smarter, faster, and have more presence. We can do more in our minds before breakfast than what most people can do in a freakin’ WEEK, a month, a year.

We are not basic ass coaches trying to heave ho our way up a few extra thou a month.

We are the ones who have ALWAYS known we are 1% within the 1% within the 1% in terms of how we think, create, operate, how and WHAT we are tapped in too.

This is not arrogance, this is fact.

And there has NEVER been any question but that we will go all the way.

My clients are high level badasses who do the work, who have a proven track record BEFORE coming to me, and a BEING-ness which unquestionably separates them from the rest. They don’t come to me to save them or lean down and hold my hand out so they can clamber up. They come because they are, quite simply, ready to go to the next level, already absolutely on their WAY there, and see in me something which they recognise because it is in them.

That ‘can’t stop won’t stop’ fire, and a level of ‘unapologeticness’ which, when truly understood and applied, can literally be the difference between 5-figure or low 6-figure and 7 or multi-7-figure entrepreneur.

So if you know who you are and it is THAT –

And you feel certain that you are ALREADY well on your way to to precisely where you’re meant to be, but that being in MY energy could help you to drop in and get there even faster, and that with a couple of simple tweaks your current revenue could be doubling, tripling, heck QUADRUPLING and beyond in months, as it has done with numerous of my clients previously, well then –

PM me here http://m.me/katrinaruthofficial and we’ll see if it’s a fit. I’m excited to talk to you, and maybe – do biz and life with you.

    That is pretty much how I work out on my spinning bike. For health reasons, I cant run like I used to, but I can still spin. HIIT or similar workouts does so much more than “regular” cardio.

    1. Kat says:

      Thank-you!! I’d been trying to remember HIIT and just couldn’t think of the term. You rock Carla 🙂 And it’s great to hear this style of training is working for you.

  2. Hello,

      Thanks Joan! Have checked out your blog a few times when you’ve commented and have also replied to you several times but haven’t heard back?! Maybe you don’t read the comment responses? Anyway I wish you all things well with your blogging and continued weight loss journey – keep us updated over here at BodyIncredible.com!

    Hi Kat, Im really enjoying your website there is so much to learn about health and exercise, I love it!
    Ive been trying this way of working out and Im wondering how long it takes to see the results. Im doing 30 seconds intense then about 2 mins recovery, totalling 4 times, altogether about 10 -12 mins then doing about 10 mins weight training followed by cool down stretching! I do this about three times a week.

  4. Kat says:

    HI Clare –
    Your cardio sounds perfect, but you’re not doing anywhere near enough weight training for fat loss! Funny your comment came through today, I’m currently writing a post on the perfect weekly exercise program. It will come out later this week so stay tuned – that should definitely help 🙂

    Hi Kat! I am so glad that I stumbled across your blog! I have been on a weight loss journey for almost a year and have plateaued with 30 pounds to go. Can you give me some ideas for interval training? This article says “8 seconds of sprinting on a stationary exercise bike, followed by 12 seconds of light cycling for 20.” Could you help me and give a couple of ideas on how to implement this? I own a treadmill and a spinning bike along with weights. I love the 20 minute idea!! I have a 2 year old and am a working mother, so finding time to workout is sometimes a challenge. Any workout ideas/routines will really be appreciated! Thanks!

    1. Kat says:

      Hi Adriene, great to hear from you 🙂 … you can do the 8 seconds on/12 seconds off on any piece of equipment. You just need a stopwatch to keep to the times.

      If you go to my other blog http://www.womanincredible.com I am publishing exercise ideas every now and then, and also have a fantastic online training and nutrition program which re-opens in January – at a VERY great trial rate!
