3 Tweaks for Better Results

You may think that if you’re not getting results from your workout and nutrition program, you should start a whole new approach. But you can actually make small tweaks, Ive done it for myself as well as for my clients and boot campers.
Tweak # 1 – Switch to Single Limb Exercises
I learned this trick from John Romaniello. What this means is to switch from the squat to the Bulgarian squat or split squat. It’s more “taxing” on the system, taking more calories to recover from.
Bonus – Switch from the Incline Chest Press to the 1-Arm DB Incline Chest Press. Lift for 6-8 reps/side and you will feel your abs working hard. It’s one of my favorite “hidden gem” ab exercises.
Tweak # 2 – Use Density Circuits
I love using density circuits with workouts. They challenge you and you get more volume in less time. For example, set up a circuit of Squats, Pullups and DB Chest Presses. Do as many rounds of 8 reps of each exercise in 10 minutes.
Tweak # 3 – Incorporate Metabolic Workout Finishers to Your Program
Metabolic finishers can jump start any fat loss program and help you smack a plateau in the face. Don’t think you have to spend an extra 30 minutes to complete a finisher, either. They are relatively short (some of them take only 2 minutes), so it’s time well invested.
Finishers combine the conditioning effects of interval training and the metabolic effects of strength training into one intense “mini-workout”. Say goodbye to cardio, and even intervals after your workout. An example is the following:
Do the following superset, resting as little as possible. In the first superset, you will peform 10 reps of each exercise. In the next superset, you will perform 9 reps. Continue in this fashion until you complete 1 rep of each exercise.
1A) Lunge Jumps (10 ea leg, 9 ea leg, etc., etc. down to 1 ea)
1B) Close-Grip Pushups (10, 9, etc., etc. down to 1)
This workout finisher only takes minutes, is very metabolically demanding and utilizes calories (aka belly fat) to recover, which means you lose more fat in less time.
And if you want the rest of the program, you can get it from the 40 Workout Finishers manual, along with Bodyweight Finishers and Cardio Addiction Finishers for just $19.99.
That’s the best deal on this unique method EVER.
