TORCH Belly FAT FAST! Train Those LEGS!

August 13, 2013 2 min read

Why would Training your LEGS HARD help you melt off Belly Fat?

I get asked this question all the time....

If you read my other Blog"Why BodyRocking Is The Highway To FAST Fat Loss!" I talked about growth hormone and the myriad of positive health benefits it has on the body.

Training your Legs HARD helps you Lose Belly Fat because it greatly influences the release of both Human Growth Hormone (HGH) and Testosterone...

(and yes ladies we need to boost testosterone too!!)

  These powerful hormones, when unleashed, work like MAGIC in the body... Transforming Body Composition by increasing Bone Mass, Muscle Mass and DECREASING FAT STORES! Also, there is research that shows that Growth Hormone can  actually counter the release of the hormone responsible for Belly Fat.... Cortisol! Cortisol is released by the adrenal glands and it tells the body to store fat in the abdominal area. There is a link between high cortisol levels and storage of body fat, particularly "visceral" abdominal body fat. Visceral fat is stored around the internal organs, as opposed to subcutaneous fat which is under the skin. Visceral fat is particularly unhealthy because it is a risk factor for heart disease and diabetes. Now, this is NOT what we want, but this hormone is really tricky to control especially if you are under chronic stress due to Life's Unexpected Challenges, so it's REALLY important to have a plan to counter it's nasty effects. One of the ways you can do this without taking any kind of pill, is simply by Training your Legs HARD! Using weights, a barbell, or DB's, or even body weight ..which is what I always use, but the key is to keep it INTENSE.

Intensity is what triggers the body to Transform!

For those of you who already hit your legs hard training with Sean and Lisa and friends, you are definitely on the right track because they provide excellent training sequences that Supercharge Your Metabolism!  Another reason Training your Legs helps you Melt Belly Fat and Fat all over is because your legs are your largest muscle group and they require so much energy First off, just to complete the exercises...which is why I hear "I'm Dying!" from my clients in the middle of doing squats...and I always reply "NO! Your not dying! Your getting Stronger!" Secondly, when you train your legs your post-metabolic gains are REALLY Great! Up to 72 hours! A Pretty good investment I think! ;) DSC07306  Here are a couple of Awesome Belly Melting Leg Workouts to Try! Workout 1  At the gym Perform 2-4 sets of 12-15 reps
