Why is Holly Rigsby Asking the Moms... How Expensive is Your Workout?

Written by Holly Rigsby, Author of the Fit Yummy Mummy

What is your workout costing you?

Time, money, energy, your sanity....?

Ready to turn the tables and create the expense of FAT LOSS?

That is what everyone desires in the first place, right? As you lose the fat, you reveal a new, lean, toned and beautiful body.

However as you begin a fitness plan, it can be quite confusing, for many plans lead you to believe that the best, fastest and most satisfying results are found in "Weight Loss" - only perpetuating the very unhealthy relationship we have with the scale.

Leading us to make the choices that causes the numbers to fluctuate which only drains our mental energies as we fret over what we are doing wrong to make the scale and our bodies so uncooperative with our efforts.

Time to stop the insanity! (once again).

Change your focus to Fat Loss and try what DOES work when it comes to effective and efficient workouts -and stop wasting your time, money, energies and sanity on a system that is not delivering the results you so badly desire.

The System:

Intense Full Body Resistance Training

Intense = Challenging

No lolly gagging, no chatting while working out, no hour long workout sessions.

Just simple, to the point, compound movements, performed in super set fashion. You just have 6 exercises that you perform in pairs, back to back with little to no rest.

This allows you to work the largest muscle groups in your body to the point of CHANGE - initiating the increase if lean muscle.

The more intense your workout, the more EXPENSIVE it is for your body - therefore your body must PAY in the form of FAT LOSS.

Muscle is essential to Fat Loss!

The more lean muscle you have, the more fat your burn, the more inches you lose, the faster you get back into your skinny jeans.

One of the great reasons why the Fit Yummy Mummy workouts deliver results so quickly is due to the intense nature of a Full Body Workout.

The more muscles you work, in a short period of time not only allows you to burn a significant amount of calories WHILE you are working out.....but does so l-o-n-g after your workout ends.


You actually Get your body to work FOR you.

How much easier could the process of Fat Loss be?

You simply cannot get this same effect with.....

~ Cardio - no matter how long you do cardio, for cardio does NOTHING to increase lean muscle - and in fact, the more you DO, the more you risk losing lean muscle. In FACT, your body actually begins to break muscle down in order to provide you with the fuel you need to keep going.

Just another reason why Intervals are the Ideal Solution.

~ Hour Long Resistance Training Workouts

If it is taking an hour to do your workouts - you are missing the point of consolidating your workouts into full body, metabolism boosting moves as well as missing out on the intensity and challenge a true fat burning workout can provide.

First, for those of you who do know, there is no way if you were working out intensely that you could go much longer than 15 minutes!

Second, the longer you place your body in a state of stress, the more cortisol - the stress hormone - you will have pumping through your body. STRESS is GOOD for you in Small Doses - as prescribed with the Fit Yummy Mummy short burst resistance training moves for this is what stimulates NEW muscle growth. Hour long Stress Sessions - Not Good and completely counterproductive to your efforts.

Cortisol is known for increasing Fat Storage AND did you know cortisol also breaks down lean muscle? What a double whammy!

Yet another reason why Less is More.

~ Isolating One Muscle Group at a Time

Once again, this misses out on the concept of intensity. Burning out one small muscle group at a time comes nowhere close to the metabolic expense of targeting those SAME tiny muscle groups with compound movements.

This is why each and every Fit Yummy Mummy workout contains lower body, upper body (push and pull) and core moves.

Plus, the main reason why many woman choose to isolate muscle groups is due to the horrid myth of Spot Reduction. You simply cannot burn fat off one area simply by working that muscle. The muscle does not own the fat on top of it.

Short Burst Resistance Training is the System that Works.

Get More Bang for Your Buck! Why would you want to do it any other way?

If any of the scenarios describe your current workout plan I highly encourage you to try a new system.

Time to create the expense that delivers results.
