Fat Burning requires Lifting, Lifting Requires Discipline



“Back in my fat days, I knew I was unhealthy. I knew I felt like crap and I knew I was embarrassed to take my shirt off at the pool. So I did something about it.

Thank goodness no one convinced me I had a ‘body image issue.’

Thank goodness there were no coddling, politically-correct enablers around comforting me and making me accept my sloppy state, or brainwashing me into believing that I loved my sluggish body.”

— Fat Shame Yourself by Chris Shugart


The physical parameter that determines calorie burning is Work (Newton Meters). The barbell and the major lifts (Bench Press, Press, Squat, and Deadlift) are the most efficient tools for producing work/calorie burning.

After the physics are understood, we need to secure the right mental state to ensure fat-loss results. What is the mental component most critical for success in a Work producing barbell program? Discipline. Discipline is the back bone of the improvement process in any endeavor, especially fat-loss. Discipline is the fertile soil from which the seeds of motivation grow into fruitful life-changing improvements.

Motivation is a fleeting state of mind if it is based out of a disciplined outlook. When you are trying to get ripped, motivation can be difficult at the start, when your body hasn’t got any metabolic momentum yet and it seems like nothing is happening.  This is where discipline to both lift hard and eat right come into play.

Once the fat starts to melt off and your real body starts to reveal itself the discipline you have will start to directly produce motivation. After that,the sky is the limit.

  1. I’ve been surfing on-line greater than 3 hours lately,
    yet I by no means found any attention-grabbing article like yours.
    It’s lovely price enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters
    and bloggers made excellent content as you probably did, the web will probably be much more useful than ever before.

  2. Start with 10 minutes of wear and tear while doing normal, on a regular basis actions
    round your home, permitting the shoes to regulate to
    your toes.

  3. There are a number of classes running shoes are divided into which are:
    trail working, cross country, triathlon, cross training and road running.

  4. These are genuinely wonderful ideas in about blogging.
    You have touched some nice factors here. Any way keep up wrinting.

  5. I really like your blog.. very nice colors & theme. Did you create this website yourself or did you hire someone to do it for you?
    Plz answer back because I’m looking to create my own blog and would like to know where u got this from.

    thanks a lot.
