There are six basic laws of fat loss workout routines. Most people neglect
to follow all six in their attempts to lose fat. Combining all six of these laws
results in a cutting-edge fat loss workout routine that will provide you with maximum fat
loss. Remember that cutting-edge doesn’t have to follow a new trend. In this
case, combining all these laws together in a logical way creates both a cutting
edge fat loss workout as well as cutting-edge workout routine.
The first law follows that no person’s can be the same. We all have
unique differences in our bodies that force small deviations from the norm.
Remember that bigger muscles heal slower than small muscles. Women recover from
workouts slower than men. Training must be specific to the goal you’re trying to
The second law focuses on overcompensation. Remember that muscles
and skill performance will adapt as you put stress on your body.
The third law is known as the “overload principle.” In order for
your body to achieve adequate success with overcompensation, so you can reach
your fat loss and fitness goals, you must “overload” your body with stimulus.
This means you have to constantly push your body to go further. You can’t be
content to do the same routine daily and expect to see your body getting any
The fourth law refers to “specific adaption to imposed demands.”
The body is geared to adapt in very specific ways. To become a better weight
lifter, you must lift weights. To become a longer endurance runner, you must run
long distances. Your body will adapt as you “force” it to work harder. Our
bodies are pretty amazing creations.
The fifth law deals with the “general adaptation principle.” This
principle was originally applied to psychological stress but it can also be
applied to physical stress through three very distinct phases:
body will first combat the overloaded stress put on it.
body will try to resist the stress.
body will become exhausted if it doesn’t receive rest from the stress put on
it from workout routines.
This means that you cannot train hard all the time. Pushing
yourself consistently without rest is counterintuitive to fat loss.
The sixth law follows directly from the fifth one, in regards to
what kind of intensity of workouts you should focus on. Remember that you cannot
do high intensity work all the time or else your body will exhaust itself. You
must do low intensity workouts in between your high intensity workouts to
receive maximum fat benefits.
