So Many Fitness Programs Out On The MarketWith so many fitness programs out on the market and on the internet today, what makes this program any different than all the rest? Before we get to the program, let’s take a look at the experts behind this program.  Steve Holman is editor and chief of Iron Man Magazine, John Rowley is an author, speaker and contributor to much of the media including Fox News, SmartMoney and Martha Stewart. Becky Holman is a wife, mother and contributor to Iron Man Magazine.

Steve and Becky Holman have been married for 27 years. Steve started weight training at 15 as a skinny 119-pounder and has been training ever since (more than 35 years). Becky has been working out on and off for more than 20 years, but she lapsed in her 30s while raising her two daughters. In her 40s she became fed up with her overweight appearance and made a radical physical transformation in only a few months. She is now a regular contributor of nutrition- based items to IRON MAN magazine, and Steve has been IM’s Editor in Chief for more than 25 years. He has written more than 20 books on bodybuilding, weight training and nutrition and has also penned hundreds of articles on building muscle and burning fat. His blog, “Built for Life,” is at IronManMagazine.com. Steve has also interviewed many legendary physique stars, including Arnold Schwarzenegger, Cory Everson, Tom Platz and Lee Labrada. His bodybuilding e-books are available at X-Rep.com and X-traordinaryWorkouts.com

So let’s not beat around the bush; just what is the F4 system? It’s a method of training based on one that has been lost and collecting dust. The reason it’s been “lost” is because of the emphasis on intensity, which most trainees equate to heavy, joint-jolting workouts.

Go to any gym, and you’ll see that most people are either using very light weights and resting too long or pounding their bodies with heavy weights, eventually getting injured. Contrary to popular belief, heavy bone- crushing poundage’s are not necessary for fast results. In fact, they can be detrimental. Those current heavy-training trends can overstress your body, jar your joints and actually damage your immune system because of excess stress hormone release (cortisol).

You do need to expend effort, but it should be cumulative. What does that mean? Here’s how it works.

Our F4 system calls for moderate poundages for less joint stress and relies on high muscle fatigue for intensity—which means short rests between sets and growth hormone release. GH triggers a veritable muscle-building, fat-burning (and anti-aging) cascade. That hormone decreases significantly as you get older, but this type of training can provide a real resurgence.   In short you can get in the best shape of your life, turn back the clock on aging all while strengthening your muscle, ligaments and joints.  This fly’s in the face of modern exercise programs, which is good because people are not getting the results they are after.  With Old School New Body they will get results.  Period!

The beauty of this program is it’s simplicity! If you’re in the slightest bit curious, I recommend you look closely at John’s program. You can even go to the Positive Fitness Interviews site and listen to a few minutes of each of the interviews so you can get a feel for them yourself.

Empower Your Reflection and Like What You See
Change your body and how you feel when you look in the mirror each day. Fitness expert Callie Durbrow has tons of tips and knowledge on how to create the best workouts for your body and your weight loss goals.

Finding balance is never easy in your workout routine. It is vital to create something for yourself that is fun and challenging. Without these stipulations, you’ll find yourself off of your diet, unfocused, and not working out to the fullest potential. Are you ready to change your life and create the best fat loss workouts possible?

Interval training – Incorporating interval training into your cardio routine is a great way to quickly raise your heart rate and lose fat. Use running outdoors, a treadmill, elliptical, bike, or any other cardio machine. Start by warming up for three minutes on the machine jogging or bicycling medium impact. Then proceed for approximately a half hour – run hard for a full minute, then walk for a minute eleven times. Afterwards, do a three minute cooldown much like the warmup. This may sound basic or simple, but you will soon find that it is quite difficult.

Kettle bell – Integrating the kettle bell into your workout is a great way to use your body’s own weight to do weight training. It’s possible to use kettle bells in multiple ways. The basic kettle bell lift is as follows: hold the kettle bell with both hands between your legs and lift it into the air. Keep your legs bent. Pop your legs up as you lift the kettle bell. This is great in the fat loss workout.

Push-ups – Push-ups can be done in many ways. They are great for streamlining the arms and back. It’s a great way to prepare your body for a big event or a great outfit. There are numerous great ways to execute a pushup set. There is the traditional pushup, done on the floor in a set for 40 seconds straight. You can also do pushups off of a yoga ball. Put your legs and thighs up on the ball with your hands on the floor face down. Then push up.

Kettle bell – Integrating the kettle bell into your workout is a great way to use your body’s own weight to do weight training. It’s possible to use kettle bells in multiple ways. The basic kettle bell lift is as follows: hold the kettle bell with both hands between your legs and lift it into the air. Keep your legs bent. Pop your legs up as you lift the kettle bell. This is great in the fat loss workout.

Empower Your Reflection and Like What You See! Stretching – Before starting a fat loss workout, it is vital that you stretch. This allows the blood flow to reach all parts of the body. In order to stay healthy and not be sore the day after your workout, you should definitely stretch. It’s great to roll your muscles on a round tube, use a band to extend your legs into the air, and do various squats.

Squats – Executing squats is a fantastic way to strengthen the legs and thighs. Squats can be done many ways – a parallel squat down the middle, right and left sided squats together or separately. It’s also possible to utilize weights to give yourself more opposition. Ideally, do thirty opposing squats with two fifteen pound weights each time in a five group set.  Fat loss workouts are a great way to kick off your weight loss efforts and keep them going until you meet your goals!Save
