Burn Fat for FREE is a concept i have been having in my head for a long time, but was looking for the right place to share it. It was too short to be an article in my magazine, so i think this blog is probably the best place for me to share this, so here you go.
What does Burn Fat for FREE mean? Basically, the concept of burn fat for FREE consist of 2 main areas:-
1) It should not cost you anything to do it (except some unwanted fat deposits)
2) As far as possible it should not take additional time out of your busy schedule to do.
If the routine meets both the criteria above, then it will be a burn fat for FREE routine.
Sound interesting? Of course it is. I want to share with all of you one simple routine that all of you can do right now, even if you are the busiest person in the world with no time to spare or if you don't have money to spend on a gym membership or both.
So here is how you can burn fat for FREE easily and the best part, you will lose weight without you even realizing you are doing it.
Take the stairs at work / apartment whenever you can. Most of us work in buildings which have elevators and i know we all love to take the elevator even if its just a mere 3 floors or worse, some even take it for 1 floor. Well time to change all that. Whenever you have to go up to your office, make sure you use the stairs. If you live in an apartment, ditch the lift and take the stairs as well. Of course the immediate question in all your minds is, what if i work on the 40th floor of a building... am i supposed to walk up all the way? Well if you could, that would be great... but of course i am not expecting you to do that. If you work on the 40th floor, take the lift to the 37th or 35th floor. Walk up from there to your floor. Even when you have to go down, walk down the stairs to the 35ht floor and then take the lift from there. Same goes for your apartment... take the lift to a few storeys below your actual floor and walk up from there.
I would highly recommend all of you to start off with at least 3 floors first and as you get better, keep increasing it by one or 2 floors at a time. If you can climb up 3 floors at least 4 to 5 times a day(meaning 4 times up and 4 times down), you are doing good. And to get these numbers are easy. When you are going to work, when you are going to lunch, when you are going out for a meeting or a cigarette break, when you are going back home... it all adds up.
Now the most important thing that you need to know / do for this to work is consistency and continuous improvements. If you can ensure you do it everyday and keep increasing whenever you can, i guarantee you will see your fat melt away.
How much does this cost you? Absolutely nothing. How much of your family time or work time is this taking away from you? Nothing.
I had another colleague who loved this concept so much, she began carrying her laptop with here wherever she went, and hers was one of those old bulky and heavy ones. Why? Because the laptop is heavy and the more weight you are carrying with you while you are walking or climbing the stairs, the more fat you are going to burn. In short, 5 minutes of walking without carrying anything burns less fat than 5 minutes of walking while carrying something. The more you carry, the more you are going to burn. Again, if you are planning on doing this, start with something light and keep increasing as your get better. I have seen enough people who dive into the deep end because they are excited only to ditch the whole program 2 weeks later because they couldn't take it. Slow and steady... that is the key.
Does this work? Absolutely. If you stick with this for at least 6 months everyday without fail, i guarantee you your weight will reduce, your heart will be stronger and your legs will be stronger. The important thing is, you have to stick with it and you have to keep improving. If you do it for 2 weeks and stop, then you probably won't see any results. Of course this is no match to joining a gym and doing a full work out, but i gurantee you visible results within 2 to 3 months if you stick with it, and keep improving.
All i can say is, try it and see. What have you got to lose besides a few inches in those unwanted areas. If you guys have other routines that fit the burn fat for FREE concept (now that i have got you inspired and thinking), please do share as i would love to hear from you guys.
