Rowing

There’s no other workout quite like rowing for burning fat and shredding cellulite

Rowing has the advantage of being a full body workout. You’re using your legs, your gluts, your lower and upper back, your neck, your shoulders, your arms. It’s like the dead-lift done with emphasis on stamina. What a workout!

The key thing to rowing is to get into a fluid cycle of movements. There isn’t too much wrong form v. right form like a lot of sites claim. If your body is comfortable, you’re doing it correctly for you. A few things to keep in mind is to have a sequence going. Push with your legs, then pull with your hands, then use your back a little bit and bring your hands to the top of your belly. Let the back and hands go back first, then crunch back in with your legs. By doing it this way, you will get your own knees out of the way of your hands which will keep the whole operation nice and fluid. Start with very little resistance and try to build speed. The point is to go smooth and fast and work up a heavy sweat and keep that heart rate up.

When you’re finished with your workout, do another five minutes really slow–using the machine to stretch your muscles out, not to continue to workout. Then get on a mat and dedicate 10 minutes to stretching your body out.

Stretching | Take advantage of your accelerated heartbeat by stretching

Doesn’t everyone want to burn fat while sitting around?

I’m going to be forty years old this October and now when I work out hard I pay for it two days later in extreme stiffness. Sometimes I tweak muscles. I’ve always pulled muscles easily. In the past I like creatine but have discontinued its use because it certainly makes my body more likely to pull a muscle. The same goes for most workout enhancers like NO Explode and that type of product. They

work wonders, especially in conjunction with slimming creams, but the risk of injury with those energy drinks increases. As I get older that’s no longer a risk I am willing to take. Instead, I’m a big fan of intense short workouts that I can repeat often followed by stretching. I find the stretching to be the real bonus because you can burn fat and cellulite while protecting yourself. That’s killing to big birds right there. In fact, that’s hitting the trifecta: cellulite, fat, and protection. I try to really stretch to make sure I minimize the impending tendinitis. Check out some of the exercises that are great.

Elliptical Machine – 30 Min (5 min cool down after) and 10 minutes of stretching.

Spin – 30 Min (5 min cool down after) and 10 minutes of stretching.

Rowing Machine – 30 Min (5 min cool down after) and 10 minutes of stretching.

While I’m stretching I’m sweating like crazy and this is when my body is really in a great zone. I’m warm and able to stretch deeply and push my limits, while I’m burning fat, and preserving my body so that I’ll be able to workout again in a day or two and keep the cycle going.

Workout of the Week | Interval Running | Shred Cellulite by keeping your body guessing

Get outside and run

I know that it isn’t always practical, especially since it is freezing in some places (like where I live, so try these), but there is something to be said for getting outside. It motivates me to see other people moving and grooving. It makes me want to work hard when I see a hot babe or good-looking guy. Everyone is either my competition or someone I want the attention of and it all motivates!

Workout of the Week: Interval Running

This is as simple as it sounds. Run and then run faster. Run and then run faster. You certainly do not need a whole blog post for this, do you? Well, maybe not, but there are a few nuances to this. The way I suggest starting out, particularly if you’d like to be able to walk this weekend, is run for 30 seconds and then fast walk for one minute. Later, when you build up some tolerance to this exercise run for 30 seconds, I mean full blown sprint, and then job for 1 minute. All you have to do is complete 15 minutes of the run/job format and you’re done. I suggest a 10 minute fast walk or slow jog warmup, 15 minutes of run/walk, and then 15 minutes of spring/jog for a grand total of 40 minutes of interval running. You will be beat.
Remember to slather on some Cel-Lab wherever you want to shred cellulite. I put it predominantly on my lower back (ewwww, back fat!), my tummy, and my love handles. If I gain any more weight I’m going to start putting it on my neck too.

Recap

  • Warm up for 10 minutes (fast walk or light jog) — 10 minutes
  • Jog for 30 seconds and then fast walk for 1 minute —  repeat 10 times / 15 minutes
  • Sprint as fast as you can for 30 seconds and then jog for 1 minute — repeat 10 times / 15 minutes
Personal Anecdote:
This is really how Cel-Lab Slim was born. I found that if I put this formula on my abs when I ran I really had an incredible workout and looked much slimmer afterwards. I was in shape and had let myself slip a bit — thanks Captain Morgan! I needed to drop some weight and control my sugar and the doctor suggested running. After losing a little weight I noticed that although I had gotten in better shape overall, I still had a gut. Using Cel-Lab Slimming Cream allowed me to target the areas that were lagging behind. I’m not 100% sure if it’s the cream itself, or if it was the focus on one area that the workout with cream gave me, or if it was cafeisilane C in the formula that gave me an energy boost, but what I am sure of is that I lost weight and I lost cellulite. My belly went from something I was embarrassed about to a worry of the past.

Exercise Clothes for Cold Weather

Oh boy, is it cold outside!

If you’re like me, you still want to get out and walk, jog, and bike. It’s too cold to go out unprepared. Here’s one of the best items for staying warm — the Duofold Men’s Thermals. Give it a try and get out there and go exercise.

Cycling | with a focus on Interval Cycling

A great way to shred cellulite is to cycle

I’m a big fan of working out in the outdoors (or out of the indoors, fun play on words!) so I suggest going outside for this but it is a very convenient exercise to do in a gym as well.

Get on a bike and pedal

Yes, it’s that simple. Here are some extra tips, though, for your convenience. If you’re riding outdoors I suggest doing something scenic. If you’re in a city like I am, cross a bridge, follow a river, circle a park, or just check out the folkRizoma-Interval-Cylcing-Pretty-Girls milling about to keep you enthused. If you’re in the countryside, check out some trails, go mountain biking, find the ocean or some nice fields, and breathe in the fresh air.

Either way, the key thing is to make sure you pedal for a while as fast as you can stand and that you also pedal with great resistance. That change to your body will disrupt your CNS causing your brain no other option but to tell the body to start eating it’s own fat to get thinner so it can survive this madness you’re putting yourself through.

Interval Biking

Let’s assume you’re indoors at a gym. Get on one of the spinning bikes and put in your data: age, weight, etc. What I suggest is that you pedal for 2 minutes at a good rate that gets your heart rate going, but not so much that you’re wearing out. This will be your maintenance speed. Then every 2 minutes you will turn the resistance to the point that you are working so hard you couldn’t do it for more than a couple of minutes. Do this for 30-60 seconds and then go back to your maintenance pedaling. Repeat 10 times. You will be spent after this workout and your cellulite will be in full retreat.
