How To Triple Your Fat Loss Workout Results In Half The Time… Or Less!

By Rob Poulos...

Do you want to know how to triple your results from your fat fighting resistance training?

Doh! Why wouldn’t you?

Properly conducted fat loss resistance training can give you startling fat melting results, along with firming muscle and strength boosts.

On top of that, when using the techniques we describe in the Fat Burning Furnace system, you’ll also receive “top drawer” cardiovascular health benefits.

And all from 2-3  workouts each week lasting just 15-20 minutes on average, which is easily 1/2 the time most gym goers spend sweatin’ on the treadmills.  Crazy but true!

But, you’ve got to do it right, not like most people are taught these days.

Walk into any fitness center or gym and you’ll see at least half if not more folks performing their workouts in a, uh, let’s just say, less than optimal way. (I’m being too kind here!)

So let’s get right to one of the ways you can triple your fat loss resistance training results instantly…

It has to do with how you specifically perform the repetitions.  To better understand this, we need to first examine our 3 different strength levels in any resistance exercise.

Your 1st Strength Level: Take the dumbbell curl exercise for the biceps for example.  In this movement, you begin with the weight down at your sides. You proceed to smoothly and slowly curl the dumbbells up to your shoulders.  This movement trains what’s known as your positive strength level.

Your 2nd Strength Level: You should then pause briefly and contract your biceps at the top of the movement.  This trains what’s known as your static strength level.

Your 3rd Strength Level: Finally, you would want to lower the dumbbells slowly back to the starting position.  This trains what’s known as your negative strength level.

Now the problem is that most people don’t even bother with the static or negative strength levels at all! They put all of the focus on the “lifting” or positive portion of the movement, while not pausing or contracting sufficiently at the top, and not taking nearly enough time on the negative portion.

HUGE mistake ;-(

In effect, these poor folks are getting only one third of the fat blasting benefits that this exercise can give them.

Actually, it’s less than that because the static and negative portions can actually create deeper inroads into your existing strength levels.  This is something you want, as it will lead to greater progress faster assuming you give your body appropriate time to recover.

Why do we care so much about strength?  Outside of the obvious reasons, strength leads to muscle growth, which leads to a faster resting metabolism, which leads to faster fat loss and various other improved health factors that could take up another couple of pages at least ;-).

So make sure not to neglect the static and negative strength levels when performing your next fat loss resistance training workout. Don’t waste the opportunity to triple your results in half the time or less!

    Hi, Rob:

    Thanks for your tips. You’re right. Once I stopped neglecting the 2nd and 3rd strength levels and actually took time to pause I felt the difference right away in the muscle. I actually could feel that it was working more and I noticed a difference in my strength levels very quickly.

    Thanks. Your program is the one of the best.

    After healing from tendonosis/tendonitis I learned the value of eccentric/negative training. My healing time was greatly reduced and surgery was avoided. I will be paying more attn to the staticbphase. Could you please contact me re purchasing your program.

    Hey Rob! I love your articles, but don’t have the time to watch the videos- which I KNOW have great stuff. Any possibility of offering an article, too, with your videos for other folks like me? Transcribing the video would be a great option too!

    • Rob Poulos

      Hey Elaine, thanks very much! We are considering some transcription of the videos in the near future…

    • fran

      I find the same,no time to sit through the whole video and know Ikm missing out on some good tips.

      • Rob Poulos

        Hey Fran, go ahead and search the blog…tons of content and info for you in here… you can search in the side bar by topic as well

    Rob,
    I have been an instructor for 11 years and I see this mistake everyday at the gym. These three things make the world of difference in your workout.
    Great info!!!

    I also really believe this to be true and have always found it “harder” to do it this way. An example being push ups; most people go thru them very fast but if they were to use this principle they’d find it much harder to do as many, but way more beneficial.

    You hinted about the right amount of recovery. I’m not sure if it is my age, 46, but I’ve noticed soreness for at least 3 days after workout. Does this mean my body is still trying to heal?

    Thanks
    Robin

      Hey Robin, this can be normal, especially in the beginning of a new workout or new exercise (or even one you haven’t done in a while)… but once you’re used to it, most of the soreness should subside within a day or two.

  8. jennifer

    Do you use maximum weight to lift or how do you decide how much to weight to use. How many reps should you do?

    • Rob Poulos

      Hey Jennifer, we typically go for a resistance that you will be unable to lift after 40-70 seconds or so…

  9. Steve

    Hey Rob great tip.

    I was aware of positive and negative but static that’s new to me. Can’t wait to incorporate it into my next routine

    can you tell me about the breathing?
