You may think I sound like a jerk, but how many calories you burned during a workout really doesn’t interest me at all.
And here’s why:
If you want to create a strong, healthy body or even leaner body you will never get there by trying to burn calories with exercise.
Here are a few of the issues we need to talk about concerning this idea.
First, how many calories your machine, heart rate monitor, or smart watch tells you you’ve burned is inaccurate. Without knowing a lot of factors that are unique to you, there’s simply no way to give you an accurate count.
Beyond that though, I’m more concerned with creating overall metabolic efficiency.
I care about you adding muscle so that you can be a strong BAMF (bad a** motherf…er), burn more calories 24/7, change the shape of your body (if that’s a goal), combat age-related decline, and so much more that I won’t go into here.
Instead, focus on training for intensity and strength. Not only will you improve your health and change the shape of your body, but you will no longer concern yourself with pesky calorie counting on inaccurate machines and devices.
The truth is that you can’t exercise off that donut (or doughnut) or slice of pizza.
And nor should you!!
I specialize in helping women and men build strength, and exercise in a way that maximizes the efficiency of their metabolisms and improves their quality of life.
I’ll be talking about some of this during a FREE training on “My 5 Keys for Building Real World Strength, Skyrocketing Your Energy, and Gaining Unstoppable Confidence” next Wednesday, March 6th at 6:30pm.
