While at first glance this may seem counterproductive — gaining weight in order to lose weight — its all about metabolism.Metabolism is actually all of those tiny chemical reactions that take place within an organism. In terms of weight loss and fitness, metabolism basically means all of those calories that your body burns throughout the day. Your resting metabolic rate would be the amount of calories your body is burning when you are at rest — sleeping, napping, watching womens golf, etc. Our goal is to add lean tissue and in turn elevate our resting metabolic rate.So how do we do that?Build Lean Muscle and Burn Fat!As we add lean muscle to our bodies that muscle will require extra calories to survive. Imagine adding a bunch of plug-in space heaters into your cold apartment during the winter. As we keep adding heaters, the energy demands go up and our electric bill cost more. So as we keep adding lean muscle (space heaters), our body must use more calories (energy) to operate that new muscle. More lean muscle equate to more calories burned.Now lets take it one step further and consider the future. As we are adding lean muscle over the coming weeks and months your body will burn more and more at-rest calories. Lets look at our analogy of adding the heaters inside of our house. There is a certain point where you have enough heaters going to keep you from getting cold, and then you can set all of the heaters to their lowest setting and they will still keep your house warm, no matter how cold it is outside.This is what we are trying to do. We want enough lean muscle on our bodies so that the fat we have lost cant come back. There is a tipping point when you are working out, where you have developed enough lean tissue (somewhere between 6 and 15 pounds) that the fat you have lost cant come back because you’re burning so many calories throughout the day. Maybe you are eating a 1500 calorie per day diet, but your body is burning 1,500 calories. Well, you’ve got yourself a nice balance.Think of pounds of fat in terms of the calories they represent. 1 pound of fat is roughly 3500 cal. In general terms, a pound of lean muscle will add an additional 20 to 30 cal per day to your metabolism. That means, if I were to put on 10 pounds of lean muscle I would be burning an extra 200 to 300 cal each and every day. You will hear some trainers and gems quote numbers as high as 50 cal per day, but thats ridiculous nonsense. I tell my clients to assume every pound of lean tissue can burn 25 cal extra per day. So if I have 10 pounds of fat to lose (35,000 cal) that I need to put on enough muscle to compensate for that fat so that once its gone I dont have to keep stressing about it.Did you know that 5 lbs. of fat is roughly the size of a Football!You’re right, that’s f’ing gross.These workouts are designed specifically to build enough lean muscle that when youre finished with the 120 days, youll have permanently changed the way your metabolism functions. The fat wont come back!So quit reading, and lets start training. All you have to do is start with workout Day 1, now! Seriously, click the damn button. Get off your . . . ok, you get the point.
