If you’ve been looking for a way to lose weight and get in shape, a program that promises results in 20 minutes a week may seem like it’s too good to be true. But with slow motion exercise, you’ll find that you really can get quick results.
Can You Really Transform Your Body in 20 Minutes a Week?
To be clear, slow motion exercising is not for the faint of heart. With slow motion fitness you work hard and do it in a way that allows you to deeply strengthen your muscles quickly. As you build more muscle, you’ll also start to boost your metabolism and burn more calories while sitting still.
This allows you to burn fat and lose weight without having to work out every day. Most of the time, workout programs recommend that you exercise four to five times a week. But when you’re very busy that can be a hard routine to keep.
But with slow motion fitness, you’ll only need to exercise once or twice a week. The other days you can rest your muscles and allow your body to recover and build muscle. Many workouts don’t give the appropriate amount of rest to allow you to do that.
With slow motion fitness you’ll exercise much more slowly than you would with another program. Each rep can take as long as 20 seconds. With most exercise programs, reps take less than half that time.
You’ll only perform one set of each exercise, but you’ll perform it to muscle failure. Muscle failure doesn’t mean that you can’t move the weight. What it does mean is that you can’t move the weight using proper form.
If you’re able to move the weight properly for eight reps, you’ll need to increase the weight during your next routine. If your muscle fails before eight reps, you’ll need to decrease the weight for the next workout. After a few workouts you’ll know how much weight to use.
Many people have had excellent results from performing slow motion exercise routines. It’s said that years ago, even Barbara Walters tried the workout. They’ve reported that they’ve lost weight, toned muscles and felt more energy and better health than ever before – all with just one weekly trip to the gym.
But that one trip isn’t going to be easy. You’ll feel like you’ve worked harder than you ever have before. When you make that one session count, though, you’ll have a whole week before you need to do it again.
If you’ve been looking for a way to transform your body without having to become a gym rat, a slow motion exercise routine is the answer. With just 20 minutes a week you can completely change the way you look and feel.
