Your Cart is Empty

There is no doubt about it, belly fat is beyond frustrating. Sometimes, it seems that no matter how clean you eat or how many miles you run, that pudge refuses to budge. While it may be tempting to just throw in the towel, we suggest you read this first! A recent study from Harvard University shows that the best way to burn belly fat is not through endless cardio but something else entirely! Cardio exercises are still necessary as they contribute to an overall body health, but, as it turns out, daily weight training is the answer for your gut! blog1271 The researchers examined the fitness habits of 10,500 men, aged 40 and over, and found that the men who lifted weights for 20 minutes every day, accumulated half as much belly fat over 12 years as the men who just did straight cardio. Obviously, when you weight train you are building and maintaining your muscles, but it is so much more than that. "When you weight train and build more strength and muscle mass, over the long-term, your muscles will adapt in a way that they are able to take in more oxygen," says study coauthor Rania Mekary. This oxygen intake is key in your body's ability to burn fat. With this increase in oxygen, your muscles will develop more mitochondria which sparks energy in the muscle cells. "When you have more mitochondria, your body is able to burn more fat as a source of energy," explains Mekary. unspecified Weight training also helps your burn calories for longer periods of time. "Other studies have found that even between sets, during these very short breaks, your muscles are pumped up and you continue to burn calories," Mekary says. "Even 48 hours after you've weight trained, you're still burning more calories than a person who did not lift weights." [bctt tweet="Lose Your Gut With This Proven Method!"] Of course, this trimming transition will not happen overnight. It may take a few months to see results. Previous studies have found that weight training is NOT more effective when it comes to fighting fat gains but they were conducted over a short time frame which may explain why Mekary's 12 years of data found the opposite to be true. inpost While strength training is more effective than cardio for creating a svelte waist, it is worth noting that the study also found that men who did both cardio and strength training kept off the most weight as they aged! So, what does all this information mean for you? It means that if you are ONLY doing cardio and struggling to lose fat, you should consider adding at least 20 minutes of strength training to your daily routine. No need to give up your cardio, just enhance it! If you are looking for a program that incorporates both cardio and strength training exercises, we've got just the thing for you.

Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification appeared to
be on the net the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while
people consider worries that they just do not know
about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well
as defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal.
Will likely be back to get more. Thanks fodboldtrøjer børn AbigailKc

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 4-6 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

We currently DO NOT SHIP to locations outside of the US and Canada. We DO NOT ship to a P.O. Box number.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sometimes delivery can be delayed by circumstances out of our control, like postal & custom delays, back-ordered products or incorrectly entered shipping addresses. If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.

Make sure when checking out and paying for your order that all of your information entered is correct! If you notice a mistake in your address, please try to contact us before your order is processed for shipping to avoid any missed shipments or delays. As soon as we process your order for shipping, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that contains your UPS tracking number. You can head on over to the UPS Website to see where your products are. Note: tracking information may take 1-2 business days to be updated in the UPS system

If you are not home when your package is delivered, BodyRock is NOT responsible if it is stolen. Please contact us if this happens to you and we will provide you with all the information needed to take the next steps.
