7 Things you MUST know about losing fat, getting in shape and building muscle!
- #1: Working out for more than an hour is counter-productive. Shorter, more intense workouts are more effective!

If you don't receive the confirmation emails after signing up, check your junk folder, many mail services mistakenly dump them there!
- #5: Long cardio sessions, on the treadmill, elliptical or exercise bike ARE NOT the most effective way to lose fat! Read this article to learn why.
- #6: Big, compound exercises like the squat and deadlift cause large releases of testosterone and growth hormone.

(If you are a woman, you still need to do weight training - you will not get big. Read this article if you don't believe me.)
- #7: High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is the most effective way to burn fat and get lean. It stimulates your metabolism massively and your body burns fat for up to 38 hours after the workout. For more on this type of training, you should read this article.
