New Study Shows Aerobic Exercise A Waste Of Time

Amaaazing news. Finally it seems that the mainstream media is recognising the truth when it comes to ideal exercise for health and weight loss. And the big news (drum-roll please)? Cardio is most emphatically NOT the answer. Well. Obviously we already knew that, but it’s nice to see a little bit more of the world catching up. So what’s the new scoop? Well, according to this study, not only is cardio a bad idea for diabetes treatment (read: insulin and weight management), but it’s also not so great for overall health and the prevention of heart disease.

I was first exposed to this concept about 5 or 6 years ago, and I gotta tell you – it took me a good 18 months to get my head around the idea. At that age health concerns such as heart disease and diabetes never even entered my mind, but the idea that cardio wouldn’t keep me in great shape was mind-boggling. After all, wasn’t that why I’d become a cardio queen in the first place? Convinced that my 2+ hours of the stuff was what was necessary to stay slim? Never mind that it never quite worked and never mind that I was always exhausted. Long story short, switching cardio (and low-cal – what a crock) for weights and plenty of protein’n’fat has whipped me into the best shape of my life but also leaves me feeling about a million percent better.

And I’m not the only one.

Recently a long-term client came in telling me how she’d suddenly lost weight after giving up cardio. In fact, she’d dropped about 3kg of stubborn belly fat in just 2 weeks. Fat that hadn’t moved for months on her high-cardio program. I had to laugh – I’d been at her for about 2 years to drop the running, but it took her suddenly being too busy for such a huge time commitment and having to drop her sessions to weights to save time. Ah well, at least she got there in the end!

If you’re thinking I must be craaaazy to be espousing such a radical approach to health and shaping you’re probably not alone. But are you really going to insist on being so one-track-minded that you can’t even consider the possibility of a new approach? After all, once upon a time we believed the world was flat …

Now I’m guessing at least one reader out there is going to look at this study and rant back at me about how it’s too general or the sample size is too small or blah blah blah. And they’d be right – the study could be more detailed. But hey, it’s just one more tiny but tough nail in the coffin of aerobic exercise. And it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realise that the whole energy in vs energy out argument is a crock anyway (yep, another one, am LOVING that word today).

And you know what? You can argue to the cows go home but when you’re a) doing it with a much bigger load on your booty than what you’d probably like or b) only managing to stay in shape by carefully spaced-out near starvation coupled with 90 minutes+ endurance exercise per day then you’re kinda shooting yourself in the foot. For the most part, weight loss and ideal health is very simple. Sure, it takes commitment, knowledge, and definitely some staying power, but it sure doesn’t (need to) take over your life. And it’s definitely more than just math. As this lovely lady recently discovered, eating higher calories and changing the way you workout could be just the answer you’re looking for.

So. Isn’t it time you caught up and kicked that nasty cardio habit once and for all? And if after all that you’re still not sure (seriously!), then promise me this. Try it for a month. You’ll have your answer. I guarantee it.

Don’t forget –

Life is Now. Press Play.

You know when something just comes through you?

And it’s HOLY FREAKING FLOW YES and all the things?

And you FEEL the fire and the gold and the energy and the NOW?

Well,

this is that.

AND THEN SOME.

I’m so proud to invite you in to this brand new course with me! I will be teaching this in a LIVE Facebook group with twice weekly livestream trainings (+ more!) – something I have not done in a very long while.

When you say yes to soul-

life says yes to you.

Fired up and Financially Ready to Explode is the NEXT level wealth and mindset strategy for the already successful woman who is done playing small!

Here’s the thing –

There are very clear reasons why you never quite get to that FULL inhale-exhale state of money freedom, even as your income and lifestyle goes up.

You can bet your sweet ass we gonna talk about those reasons. Understand them. And learn how to roll with them. BECAUSE YOU GET TO BE ABLE TO BREATHE FULLY BEING YOU.

And OMG. So much more. And a LOT of it comes down to understanding that the MONEY WORKS FOR YOU WHEN YOU UNDERSTAND HOW TO ROLL WITH YOUR OWN CHANGING NEEDS.

And? That there are a million freakin’ ways to make money and there is ALWAYS money there that gets to come from flow. So for women like us … one of the biggest FOOLHARDY AF things we can do .. is try to make our business flow respond to things we think should work, things that did work, things that are working for others, etc!

What we need instead is simple:

A clear freaking understanding of where today’s money is at. This week’s. This months. The long-terms. And how to do it all in a way where true wealth growth becomes automated and inherent to who you are. Where you can breathe fully in your creative needs each day. AND, where it’s ALL fun and yes whilst making a crazy impact on those you want to help!

In short?

You need to get FIRED UP AND FINANCIALLY READY TO EXPLODE with me.

And that’s what we’re gonna do here:
