The Last 10 Years of Your Life

I’ve got a question to ask you. How do you envision your “Golden Years”… you know… the last 10 years of your life?

Last 10 Years

I know for most of us, our “golden years” , you know, those last 10 years of your life seems to be far off in the distance…. or is it?

Regardless of where you are financially, when you think of your “golden years”, how do you envision them? Do you see yourself living life, having fun, being active; or do you see yourself as old, sick, frail, decrepit, and spending most of your time with your doctor?

Regardless of whether you are financially well off, or struggling to get by, I know you don’t want to think of your “golden years”, the last 10 years of your life as old, sick, frail, decrepit, and spending most of your time with your doctor.

Let me ask you this question? What are you doing NOW, how are you living each and every day, so you won’t be living your “golden years”, the last 10 years of your life as old, sick, frail, decrepit, and spending most of your time with your doctor?

Your time is NOW
I know I’ve said this before, but I really cannot stress this enough – Once you hit the age of 40, everything you do now, or don’t do now, will have a major impact on how you live the last 10 years of your life.

What are you doing right NOW to live the best years of your life?
Every day that goes by that you are not keeping up with your health and fitness is going to have a major impact on your quality of life in your “golden years”.

Every workout you miss, over time, adds up and will impact your quality of life.

Every cookie, candy, chip, pretzel, fast food meal, restaurant meal, soda, greasy burger, etc., you eat, over time, adds up and will impact your quality of life. Mind you, I’m not saying not to ever indulge or treat yourself to your favorite foods every now and then, but if you are making poor food choices on a weekly basis, it will add up and impact the quality of your life.

You should never become your disease
If you are in your 30’s, 40’s or even your 50’s and are currently living with health issues (pre-diabetes, diabetes, high blood pressure, headaches, joint pain, digestive issues (such as gas, bloating, constipation or diarrhea), if you continue to ignore these health issue or warning signs, they will become worse and will take over the quality of your life 10 years from now.

If you haven’t given some thought before now about what the last 10 years of your life will look like, do yourself a favor, watch this 1 minute video, and think about everything I’ve said in this article and be sure to enter your email address in the form below, to get my Blueprint to Optimal Health and Fitness FREE.

 

5 reasons “slow-go” cardio SUCKS

Going through some client emails over the last few days I’ve noticed that many people are still stuck doing long duration, low-intensity cardiovascular exercise …. yikes!!

Here’s the deal: if you’re looking to achieve maximal benefit from the time you put into your workouts, long duration “slow-go” cardio is NOT the way to go, and for many reasons.

Here are my top 5:

1. Minimal calories burned 45 minutes on the treadmill may burn a whopping  300 calories if you’re lucky, the equivalent of ONE TENTH of a pound of fat.  Exercise ten hours a week and you might just lose a pound!

Which brings me to my next point:

2. Way too much time involved.  I don’t know about you, but I don’t have hours and hours of my time to pour into working out each week. In fact, very rarely do I ever a couple hours of exercise weekly, and you know what? …….. That’s ALL you need.

In fact, research has shown that anything more than 90 mins a week may be detrimental!  Click here—->>  more info here 

Beyond that, slow-go cardio is:

3. BORING as heck.  Sitting on an exercise bike staring at the wall in front of me for 45-60 minutes? No thanks.

But perhaps even worse is the fact that slow-go cardio provides:

4. No prolonged metabolic benefit.  Did you know that with higher intensity exercise it is possible to continue to burn calories for up to 48 hours post workout? It’s true. But you know what else is true? Long duration, low intensity cardio provides virtually NO prolonged elevation in metabolism. In fact, with slow-go cardio, metabolism returns to baseline almost IMMEDIATELY following the exercise session.

And finally, the reason that trumps all the others:

5. Minimal fat loss. Minimal calories burned during the session and virtually no additional calories burned afterward = minimal, if any fat loss results. And let’s be honest, the only reason anyone is doing cardio is for the “result”.

So if slow-go cardio isn’t a great solution, what is?
