Sexy Body Workout Formula = Strength Training + Low Calorie Diet + Interval Training

If I was going to come up with a simple formula for getting the slim and lean look that looks great in and out of clothes, this would be it:

Strength training while losing or maintaining weight.

The main thing is to do strength training in a safe and sensible way.

The other point is to do it without adding excessive muscle mass.

Most people have never tried to gain strength while losing or maintaining weight.

Typically people “bulk up” while strength training and lift light when losing weight. I suggest a different approach.

A Study Exploring Calorie Restriction on Muscle Mass

Effects of Resistance vs. Aerobic Training Combined With an 800 Calorie Liquid Diet on Lean Body Mass and Resting Metabolic Rate: This study has a really long name.

Let me give you a quick summary…

A Group of men and women stayed on an 800 calorie diet and only 80 grams of protein per day for 12 weeks.

The group that did some form of strength training 3 times per week, did not lose any lean muscle mass. This was despite a very low calorie and protein intake!

Why haven’t you read about this before in the Fitness Magazines?

Well, they make a large portion of their income selling advertising to the big supplement companies.

It wouldn’t be smart for them to upset their advertisers.

Forget The Typical “Muscle Loss While Dieting” Myth!

Losing muscle under calorie restriction won’t be an issue as long as you are doing resistance training at least 3 times per week.

Your body has mechanisms in place to preserve muscle mass as long as it believes there is a need for that muscle.

Obviously, if you are eating a low-calorie diet and not training, there is a chance that you will lose muscle.

So, lift weights while eating a strict, low calorie diet.

Those Carrying Excessive Muscle Are The Exception

Anybody who has read my blog for any period of time knows I don’t like or recommend “excessive muscle” (aka bodybuilding).

I believe that everyone looks best at their “natural” level of muscle.

What I mean by that, is the size that you get when becoming “functionally fit”…strong as well and quick with good cardiovascular fitness.

A person with a big frame will hold more muscle than a person with a small frame and they both look great at their respective sizes.

If you have a lot of muscle mass and are sick of feeling sluggish, you may want to give this a try and get back down to a more manageable weight.

The Type of Strength Training I Recommend

So let’s get something straight… bodybuilding and strength training are two totally different activities.

Strength training isn’t about exhausting the muscle, it is about generating tension in a muscle.

The more tension you are able to generate in a muscle the stronger you will become.

Heavier weights will allow you to generate more tension in a muscle, but this can be done with lower weights as well.

Either way, I recommend using low reps.

Lower reps allow you to concentrate on each individual rep better than high reps.

You Can Safely Go “Low-Cal” for Short Periods of Time

I am always shocked at how quickly people will jump on you when you tell them that you are eating a low amount of calories.

It kind of makes me laugh. I was unemployed a while back and went 3 months eating very few calories each day to save money.

I was working out 4 times per week and actually looked and felt great during this whole period of time. Some of the time I just drank 4-6 cups of tea during the day and one meal at night.

I was slightly smaller at the end of these 3 months, but that was probably due to my muscles being a bit depleted of carbs.

Turbo Charge Your Results With a Strategic Cardio Routine

The study above showed that resistance training along with a low calorie diet resulted in fat loss while maintaining muscle.

To ensure a maximum of fat loss, I recommend adding in cardio as well. From what I have seen…most people aren’t performing cardio in a strategic manner.

Give this Formula a Try. You Will Like the Results

Note: Don’t go overboard here. I don’t want anybody to become anorexic.

Make sure that you do the resistance training part and don’t go super “low cal” for any lengthy period of time. As always…moderation is important.
