Today, I want to share with you the exact reasons this is. I’m going to lay out the TOP THREE things most fitness programs get wrong. I’m going to share the top 3 Unbelievable Truths about programs-and how even some the “best” ones are guilty of committing these crimes.
Of course, I’m going to show you how to spot these things and how to avoid them.
Most important, I’m going to show you the exact reasons why, when a program that takes these Truths into account-like Lean & Lovely does-it will make progress faster, easier, and permanent.
When you read these truths, it will change the way you look at EVERYTHING.
So let’s get into all the things that make a great program truly different from the others, you may have seen…and how that will FIX the problem others have caused.
Unbelievable TRUTH# 1:
Over 68% of Women Use Workouts That Are NOT Designed for Women
That is a crazy statistic, but it’s true. Well above half of the women who are trying to get in shape and build their best bodies are using programs NOT designed for them.
Now, I don’t want to turns this into a whole debate about whether women should train differently from men. Because the facts are: 1) any exercise is better than no exercise, and 2) just about anyone can get SOME benefit from a good program.
But do you really want SOME benefit? Or do you want to radically change your body and your life? I’m better it’s the latter.
While “gender neutral” fitness programs are fine, and even workouts designed for men CAN work, the fact is, they are missing out on some crucial key components that women need to address if they really want to get maximal benefit in the minimum time.
Any woman can tell you that we have special considerations. I’m not just talking about that time of the month. I’m talking about actual hormonal differences between men and women.
To start: men naturally have higher testosterone. Women have higher estrogen and progesterone. That part, you know.
What you might not know is that these simple hormonal differences HUGELY affect where you gain fat, and how you lose it!
It’s pretty obvious if you look at where men and women store their body fat: men tend to store it in the belly and love handles; women store it in the hips and thighs. There reason for this is hormones.
Because of the higher estrogen and progesterone, women have a MUCH higher concentration of Alpha-1 fat receptors in the lower body.
This makes it VERY easy to gain fat there, and very HARD to lose fat from there.
And let me tell you, fixing it isn’t as simple as doing more exercise. In fact, that’s not the way to go about it at all. Instead, you want to do DIFFERENT TYPES of exercise, as well as eat differently.
Certain training methodologies can help shift your hormonal environment very slightly. And that’s really all it takes.
An increase of just 1% in the right direction can have an IMMEDIATE effect on your Alpha-1 fat receptors, making losing fat in your trouble areas something that happens automatically…instead of something you have to struggle with for years.
Remember, Lean & Lovely was specifically designed for women, by a woman. It purposefully addresses these hormonally influenced fat storage patterns through both training AND nutrition.
Not only are Lean & Lovely workouts going to help you drop fat you’re your most stubborn areas, the strategies in the Nutrition Handbook are going to make sure that you’ll be eating to support that-and that means keeping it off for good.
Unbelievable TRUTH# 2:
The VAST Majority of Fitness Plans ARE NOT Designed for Permanent Results
I’m sure you’ve experienced this before: you start a fitness plan or some diet. Maybe you’ve heard great things about it. Maybe you’re hoping it’ll be the one that FINALLY works.
And it does, for a while. Then it STOPS. Dead. You hit a plateau.
You keep going, and nothing happens. So you do the logical thing and try out a different plan. And the UNTHINKABLE happens: you don’t lose any more weight, you start to GAIN it.
The reaction is pretty easy to predict: more workouts, crash dieting, water depletion. But as it turns out, more is NOT better. In fact…it makes it worse.
Oh…and when you finally go back to your “normal” habits, you gain all of the weight back. If you haven’t already that is. Sometimes, you gain even more.
If you’re really lucky, and are willing to diet forever, you’ll be a few pounds lighter.
This is the classic two-steps-forward-one-step back dance that nearly ALL of my clients have had to go through at some point or another. Lose the weight, gain the weight back, lose the weight, gain the weight back AGAIN-wash, rinse, repeat.
And just like you, they wanted off the merry-go-round.
Lean & Lovely helped them stop the cycle.
Here’s why: most fitness plans are very one-dimensional. They focus on something specific, like “low carb.” Or maybe they are all about “gluten-free.” If they focus on exercise, they only use ONE style of training.
All of which means this: they fail to stay ahead of your body’s Adaptation Curve.
You may know this, but your body is a really intelligent organism. And whatever you do for your fitness, your body will very quickly adapt to it. That is, it’ll “get used” to the stimulus, and stop responding.
This is great from the evolutionary perspective of survival…but it makes losing fat A LOT harder.
And so if you really want to avoid going two steps forward and step back, you need to stay as far ahead of your body’s Adaptation Curve as possible.
If you don’t…if you keep doing the same thing, just MORE or harder, you won’t make progress. In fact, that’s what often causes people to gain the weight back. As the graph above shows, once your body is too acclimated to the stimulus, it will do the opposite of what you want.
Which is why you need to stay ahead of the adaptation curve, if you want to lose weight, and KEEP it off.
Put another way, you have to “trick” your body by changing thing every so often. But you can’t do it haphazardly – that would makes things worse. You need to do it STRATEGICALLY.
That way, you keep progressing, and NEVER hit a plateau.
So, how do you do it?
Simple. It’s called Progressive ProgrammingTM. This is one of my little secrets, and it is only of the ONLY ways to design fitness plans that will allow you to develop the Lean & Lovely body you’re after.
Here’s how it works: with Progressive ProgrammingTM, you’re actually splitting up your plan into specific blocks of time. Each one of these block will focus on a different aspect of you overall fitness.
Now, you can see how that is AUTOMATICALLY superior to most fitness plans that focus on just ONE thing. With Lean & Lovely, you’re focusing on several, just one at a time.
But that’s not all. You see, to go even further and make your results even better, Lean & Lovely in a way which allows the qualities you develop to build upon one another, creating a system where each period is more effective because of the ones that came before!
Lean & Lovely is as complete 12-week program, divided into 3 phases, each lasting 4 weeks long.
And THAT makes Lean & Lovely stand out: every phase builds on the phase that came before it, allowing you to make progress each and every week.
No more plateaus. No more back-and-forth. No more two-steps-forward-one-step-back. No more losing weight just to re-gain it.
Instead, just a direct path to your permanent Lean & Lovely body.
Unbelievable TRUTH# 3:
Many of the “Best” Fitness Plans ARE NOT Realistic
I would never try to tell you that there aren’t good programs out there. Of course they are. But, one of the BIG problems I’ve found is that they are IMPOSSIBLE to follow in the real world.
Even if a program follows all the “rules” -it has smart training, fast and effective workouts, and may even offer some keep progressing. EVEN if that’s the case…seemingly NONE of the programs are actually feasible for most women. And trust me, I have looked at A LOT of them.
Sure, they look good on paper, but the don’t really work in the reality.
Firstly, most of the require you to join a gym. Sure, they might say they don’t, but often they do. Unless you happen to have two barbells with full sets of Olympic plates, a squat rack, some benches, and a full line of dumbbells laying around your house.
You don’t? Well, then you should join a gym if you want to do one of those programs. And that’s fine!
I have nothing against gyms. I’m just well aware of what you find in gyms: people! I also have nothing against people, but they DO tend to mess up your workouts.
Tell me if this is a familiar scenario…
You’re trying to do a fat loss workout you read about. It looks awesome: there are workouts made up of fast-paced circuits, interesting exercises, and even a few new moves that you want to try.
In a perfect world, you would go to the gym and have an amazing workout. But we don’t live in a perfect world. We live in the real one.
And when you go to a real gym filled with real people, they’re also trying to have a great workout. If you’re using a typical fat loss program, that’s a huge problem.
Like I said, most of those programs require a gym. And they have workouts that are great on paper. But they’re not written for YOUR gym. Or any gym. They’re just workouts that look good on paper.
So what happens? Well, this awesome workout of yours requires you to move from exercise to exercise, station to station. Four or five stations in a row.
Perfect world, no problem. Real world, doesn’t work.
Invariably, you’re going to wind up needing two pieces of equipment that are NOWHERE near each other. That is just the beginning of the issue.
You finish your set, put down your dumbbells, and rush over to the other area where your next exercise is. But when you get there, someone is using it. So you wait for them to finish. (Hopefully they’re not texting between sets.) You manage to get your set done, maybe finish the other few exercises.
When you finally get back to your first station…you find that someone else is not only using your bench and dumbbells, they’re glaring at you for “not cleaning up your mess.”
That’s what trying to do a typical fat loss program is like in a commercial gym, or even a smaller facility. So much for those fast paced circuits and short rest periods that burn all that fat!
Good luck trying to save your equipment…
Instead, you wind up making up the workouts on your own, because you’re replacing things anytime something isn’t free. Or, you’re standing around waiting half the night, and your “30 minute fat blasting workout” turns into a 90-minute marathon that crawls.
The fact is, a lot of those training programs ARE good…as long as you train in an empty gym in the middle of the day. Or the middle of the night.
If you’re like the rest of us and have one of those pesky jobs, you have to go to the gym the same time as everyone else. And that can render those programs useless.
Instead of following this “amazing” program as it’s written, every single time you set foot in the gym you’re changing things and switching things and just plain making things up, trying your best to do a SORT OF version of the workout.
Not exactly a dream scenario. And NOT one that’s going to help you burn fat, and get the results you want.
I know what it’s like, because I’ve been there. It’s frustrating, and it is NOT effective. So I’ve made sure that Lean & Lovely solves that program.
· Firstly, Lean & Lovely DOES NOT require a gym. In fact, 90% of my Lean & Lovely ladies train in their own homes.
· This is possible because of the equipment! L&L focuses on KETTLEBELL TRAINING.
· In addition to being superior for fat loss than just about any tool out there, KBs are convenient, and versatile…
· IN FACT, it’s very, very easy to complete an entire Lean & Lovely workout using just ONE kettlebell. Just ONE.
Think about that: you can do an entire fat burning workout with just one single piece of equipment. This solves everything.
Now, you can certainly train at home. Or in the park, or on the beach, or anywhere else you want. But if you DO train in a gym, you can get in and out in 20-30 minutes because you don’t have to run around. Just stay in ONE place with your ONE kettlebell and get the best workout ever.
THAT is the Lean & Lovely difference.
But there’s so much more: remember, Lean & Lovely Is NOT just a book…
It’s a COMPLETE fitness & lifestyle transformation kit …
Remember, the purpose for which L&L was created is actually much bigger than just looking better: it’s intended to help women completely transform their bodies, mindset, and lifestyle.
