The one surefire way to getting the body of your dreams is through self-education. You've got to take the time to learn everything you can about the subject. We're in the information age and there's an infinite body of information out there. There's no way I can cover it all for you. All I can do is offer guidelines and point you in the right direction.
Talking about guidelines, let's start talking about high intensity interval training (HIIT). I really think HIIT is a VERY powerful method that can really help you achieve that flat, manly chest you've always wanted.
With HIIT, you take a traditional cardio exercise like running, cycling, swimming, or going on the elliptical machine, and instead of doing the exercise at a steady pace for 30 minutes to an hour, you go at a very rapid pace that you can keep up for no longer than 1 minute. Then you rest, and go at it again, and you do this several times.
Sprint then rest. Sprint then rest. Sprint then rest.
What makes HIIT better than traditional steady state cardio, is that where traditional cardio results in a loss of muscle mass and a reduction in testosterone levels, HIIT helps you lose fat, while PRESERVING muscle mass. In fact, studies show that HIIT even helps you INCREASE your muscle mass. HIIT also INCREASES testosterone. How cool is that?
Man boob sufferers who lose fat using traditional cardio, always complain that they have lost fat from everywhere on their body, EXCEPT their chest. This is because traditional cardio REDUCES testosterone levels.
On the other hand, my clients who lose body fat with a combination of a low-carb diet and HIIT, find that their chest goes down at the same time as the fat on the rest of their bodies. Many find that the chest goes down first, including other feminine body fat deposits, like the butt and the hips.
In my next email, I'd like to tell you about a method I use that will supercharge the results you get with HIIT. Most people who do HIIT, never think about using this method. Elite professionals have been using this method for decades with amazing results.
Meanwhile, how's about you get started on some HIIT? In my new HIIT program, called “Paleolithic High Intensity Interval Training”, I advise getting started on 60-second sprints, with a rest interval of 2-3 minutes in-between sprints.
Don't start off by pushing yourself with a 100% effort. Only push yourself enough to feel that burning sensation in your muscles, they call the “pump”. Start with just one or two sets, then gradually increase your sets to a maximum of 5.
Whichever exercise you choose, make sure you can first do this exercise at a slow steady state for at least 5 minutes, preferably for 20 minutes. This will help build muscle and bone strength that will prime your body for HIIT.
If you choose to do swimming-sprints for example, make sure you can swim at a steady state around the pool for 5-20 minutes non-stop, and only THEN start doing swimming sprints.
There's obviously a lot more to it, all of which I unveil in my program on Paleolithic HIIT, but this is enough to get your foot in the door with HIIT.
When you're ready to take things to the next level, then pick up a copy of my Paleolithic HIIT program here:
As with every natural approach, your chest won't physically flatten out after the very first workout, but I promise you, you will notice the change in the way your body feels immediately after the workout.
As long as your diet isn't packed full of grains, you WILL start to notice visible changes in your physique within the first few weeks.
So get started, and let me know how you get on.
