Regular cardio raises your metabolism while you're doing it, but once your finished, your metabolism returns to its regular rate. On the other hand, LIIT raises your metabolism for hours afterward.

Without getting too technical, LIIT spikes your metabolism after your finished (while you're at rest) because your body is so strained, it needs extra time to recover_

Think of it this way: gunning your car for 30 seconds, then braking down to 10 MPH, then gunning and braking again uses much more gas than driving at a steady pace. The same is true for your body, except in this case, the more fuel (body fat) you use, the better!

While there are plenty of cardiovascular benefits that come from LIIT, the way we define it here is not as the antithesis of HIIT styled workouts, where the majority of the emphasis is on high-intensity cardiovascular exercise, combined with fast-paced resistance-training exercises.

so, inside @xfitnessghana, this is me trying to learn the “Shaku shaku” dance from @dancegodlloyd with @sisterdeborah hyping me in the background. Who said macho men can’t dance?

If anyone tells you that you are going to gain an enormous amount of muscle or lose 50 pounds of fat by doing his workout or diet plan, that person is lying. The only thing that produces huge changes in your body is consistent hard work. Of course there might be more efficient or worthwhile programs, but at the end of the day, if you're not busting your ass, you won't change.
.
In my experience, the greatest changes occur in the first 2-3 years of training. After that, it's slow progress that takes a lot of dedication. Everyone wants to believe that a magic program or pill will awaken the beast from within, but there just isn't. Sorry, I'm not sorry.

When it comes down to it, a fitness journey for long-term success doesn't have to be complicated. We're really talking about how you are supposed to live every single day for the rest of your life. And that means flexibility -- including those occasional splurges -- are all part of the plan.

Enjoy the journey and don't stress about anything. Happy Easter. 🇬🇭✊🏿

Only 2 slots available. Your fitness goals are up to you. It’s your call whether you want to burn fat, build muscle, improve endurance, get better at a sport, or a combination of these. If you’re serious about reaching your fitness goals, you’ll need to do more than just make it to the gym. Start here.

While you always have to deal with stressful people, the trick is to minimize their influence on your life. You don't need to cast out every person who's not a die-hard fitness fanatic, but avoid people who belittle your goals.

Just as importantly, surround yourself with people who offer encouragement. Even if you train by yourself, try to spend time with other lifters and athletes who are just as serious as you. You won't need to rely solely on your internal motivation when you have others holding you accountable; their progress can inspire you to be better.

One of my favorite quotes to live by is, 'Comparison is the thief of joy". It's fine to use people you follow on social media, or even the legendary greats, for motivation and inspiration, But never compare yourself to them, because there will always be someone bigger, better, stronger, and faster than you. Instead measure success by the progress you're making and by remembering why you started in the first place. It's a great idea to take time every so often and reflect on how much progress you've made. Look at how far you've come instead of how far you have to go.

the joy in waking up on Saturday mornings to messages like these. Little tip to all coaches; Progress is when your clients are able to work unsupervised and make critical decisions on their own. You can't allow clients to depend on you 💯. Wherever they go they should be able to acclimatize positively and impact change in order to see results.
