We’re back with another follow along workout sample from Arnel! He took Adam through a sample of his 450 calorie workout, and as many of you pointed out, the sweat on Adam’s brow — and elsewhere — was very real.
So how will Adam fare in this new 600 calorie workout? There’s only one way to find out…
But before we watch the video, let’s talk about how this workout fits into an overall plan that moves us from burning 300 calories per workout all the way up to 1000 calories per session.
As you already know, if you want to burn fat, you need to create what’s referred to as a caloric deficit — burn more than you consume. We’ve talked before about using “caloric restriction” to reduce calories.
But food is only half the equation. Exercise is the catalyst that turns those nutritional sacrifices into impressive physique changes. By combining the right nutritional approach with massive — but progressive — workout stimulus, you’ll be able to evoke a much more rapid transformation than with either of the two on its own.
And the key word here is progressive. Arnel has devised a system that walks you through progressively challenging workouts that start at 300 calories and advance through 450, 600, 800 and finally 1000 calorie sessions.
To burn a pound of fat requires a deficit of around 3500 calories. If you were to combine a 2000 calorie deficit through diet and another 1000 calories through your workout on the same day, that’d come pretty darn close to annihilating a pound of fat.
That might sound a bit extreme, but the above scenario is entirely plausible and completely safe. The human body is very adaptable. And what we’ve been lead to believe is the “caloric norm” is actually much more than we need to eat — as evidenced by our collectively growing waistline. It’s also important to understand that the body works on a rolling average of consumption and exertion. It’s the average over days, weeks and months that determines your health and fitness results.
As long as we follow a progressive plan, we can train our bodies to thrive on this new challenge. So let’s take the next step. Check out this 600 calorie session. And pay close attention to Arnel’s coaching cues. He drops some seriously golden nugget of wisdom in this video!
Arnel’s Giant Sets are brutally efficient. And he’s thoroughly tested them to make sure they deliver on the promised 600 calorie inferno. Do three of those workouts over the course of a week, and combine them with three days of caloric restriction, and you’re easily looking at a deficit of over 7000 calories. And that means 2 pounds of fat — gone!
