This week you’re going to get an amazing “Top Ten Guide to Surviving Thanksgiving“.
But first, I have a special announcement to make concerning my annual Toys for Tots Drive. Last year, thanks to you, we raised over $1000 for Toys for Tots. My goal this year is $3,000.
Here’s some of the haul we brought in last year because of you…
All this week, EVERY DOLLAR from my VIP Membership will go to Toys for Tots…
And now… #10 on my Guide to Surviving Thanksgiving:
10) NEVER use a treadmill or elliptical again
I hate traditional cardio.
In fact, there’s probably nothing less appealing to me than the thought of spending even five minutes on a stair climber or elliptical.
I’d rather sit through four hours of ice skating wearing tights than do cardio.
When I started working out years ago, it never occurred to me to jump on a treadmill to ‘get in shape’. I wanted to be strong, athletic, and lean for golf performance.
Instead, I design golf specific programs that try to minimize or eliminate the use of cardio equipment. Kettlebells, bodyweight exercises, dumbbells, bands and various other items can all be used to get a better result.
By combining these tools into short bursts of time, we can effectively shed fat and improve your overall golf conditioning… in less time.
In fact, I’ve created a whole series of short burst workouts called “Endurance Builders”.
I also built Endurance Builders in to my newest Core to Score program. Essentially, you take one day out of the week and put yourself to the test. The result is a more efficient fat burning and conditioning workout.
The Endurance Builder method I have designed is a hell of a lot more efficient than traditional cardio. plus…
… elliptical machines don’t do a whole lot to build your athleticism and mobility.
One other thing I forgot to mention is that traditional cardio increases your cortisol production and can lead to muscle and strength loss. Here’s the science:
A recent study by the University of Tampa showed that adding jogging to a weight training program
decreased strength gains by 50%.
If you’re getting weaker, you are losing muscle. If you are losing muscle, your fat percentage is going to go up.
I don’t know about you, but I like being bigger, stronger and leaner instead of smaller, weaker, and fatter.
That’s why I’ve designed the workouts like I have. It’s far more effective and a lot more fun.
And last week, I even gave you an Endurance Builder (Workout C of Power stage from Core to Score) you can use right away.. here it is again:
