“Mikey, can I do finishers in the place of intervals?” OR…”Can I do intervals one day and finishers the next?”
Let’s get crazy. Let’s do BOTH. I’ve got an “Interval Finisher” for you to knock out, but first, let’s take a look at a NEW problem with cardio from my friend Craig Ballantyne.
New Research Shows Why You Must Avoid Cardio By Craig Ballantyne, CTT
10 years ago people called me crazy for warning against the dangers of excessive cardio. It doesn’t work, I said, and you’ll get overuse injuries that can ruin your life.
Well, today, not only am I no longer a lone voice in the wilderness, but major newspapers – like Tuesday’s Wall Street Journal – are reporting on studies that show excessive cardio harms the heart.
According to the WSJ, “Running 20-25 miles or more per week eliminates the benefit of exercise as you grow older and causes excessive wear-and-tear on the heart.”
Of course, exercise ADDICTS will ignore dispute this information, and runners will continue to post “I hate Craig Ballantyne” articles, but the #truth about long slow cardio and running is this…
1) You can get better fat burning results in less time
2) Less exercise = less wear-and-tear on the body, including your heart, skeletal muscles, and your joints
3) You’ll have more time to do other important things if you aren’t out running for 200-250 minutes per week (assuming a 10-minute mile)
Even Dr. Kenneth Cooper, the father of ‘aerobics’ has said, “If you are running more than 15 miles a week, you are doing it for some reason other than health.”
So listen, if you want to exercise for fitness, fat loss, and live a long life full of vitality, there’s no better way to train than with short, burst workouts.
That’s why you need the “Burn Fat at Home” System that includes 31 short burst interval workouts and 15-Minute Metabolic Finishers to banish belly fat from the holidays.
And here is a finisher from my brand new manual, “Interval Finishers”, that I’ll give you FREE when you get Craig’s no-brainer deal through the link above.
