You must start with a total body warm-up with bodyweight exercises, such as bodyweight squats, total body ab exercises, single-leg movements, and bodyweight pushing and pulling. You’ll even use dynamic mobility exercises like high knees, butt kicks, and dynamic stretching to prepare your muscles for athletic fat loss.
The concept of an “athletic workout” is gaining visibility and popularity as an alternative to traditional gym workout routines. The idea of the bulky muscle-bound physique is no longer popular. (Was it ever?) In fact, when most people visualize their workout goals, they see themselves with a well-proportioned body, that’s slim and well-toned, that feels good to move in, and has energy, strength and agility.
To lose one pound of body weight, you have to expend 3500 more calories than you consume. This means you can lose one pound of body weight per week by creating a calorie deficit of 500 calories each day of the week. This can be accomplished by cutting 500 calories out of your diet, keeping your diet the same and burning off an additional 500 calories each day through exercise or by a combination of reducing your calorie intake and increasing your exercise to equal a 500 calorie deficit.
The right way to achieve optimal athletic performance and a healthy weight is to adopt a whole foods, plant-based diet. Get as close to nature as possible. Avoiding chemical additives and preservatives will allow your body maximum absorption of critical nutrients. Purify your body of these alien substances clogging your cells and the fat will eliminate as well.
Keep fresh food in your house and plan your day. When you get home at night plan the following days meals. Use plastic containers and take more than enough healthy food with you. Eat small frequent meals. Make sure you have protein in each meal. Don’t ever let your body get hungry and don’t eat until your full. Follow this same protocol when drinking water.
One thing that many people don’t realize is that an intense workout causes the body to burn calories after the workout, which is often referred to as the after burn effect. Exercise is a process of breaking down the body and building it back up, but stronger. When you do intense exercise, the body break down effect is much greater and there is a greater need for repair. The energy that goes into this repairing process burns additional calories, so hard exercise can have a fat blasting effect for hours after your workout.
HIIT is in reality a conditioning workout that athletes use to avoid running out of steam, a boxer who would want to last longer in the ring will get endurance benefits from a HIIT workout, so will a football player who will benefit by being able to run in the field more without getting tired and since HIIT helps you avoid losing muscle big football players will benefit more.
