Jim Stoppanis SixWeek Shortcut To Shred Workout Training Overview Bodybuilding
â™ªâ™ªâ™ª The quot;Shortcut to Shredquot;training program has the main goal of fat loss. However, because the program isdesigned with microcycles that use a periodized scheme, it alsois great for building mass and for gaining a lot of strengthwhile you're losing body fat. So who's it foré It's really for anyone,regardless of what your goal is.
Obviously, the lower you arecurrently in body fat, the more extreme you can get your fatlevels down with this program. But for those of you who areover 20% fat, this is also a great program to get you downcloser to that 10% mark, which is an impressive markfor anyone to be at. So really, this program is foranyone, regardless of where your starting point is and what yourend goal is, but the main goal of this program is dropping morebody fat while you're building
muscle and getting stronger. The most critical aspect tothe quot;Shortcut to Shredquot; program is cardio acceleration. That's the real keyto dropping body fat. With cardio acceleration,you're gonna be doing cardio in between every single set. Now, cardio does not mean yougotta run across the gym, jump on a treadmill,jump on a stationary bike.
It can be as simpleas running in place right next to the bench. Whatever it is, it's gonna keepyou moving, whether it's jump roping, jumping jacks, dumbbellcleans, kettle bell swings. Whatever it is, you'regonna be moving for a minute. And what that does is keepsyour heart rate elevated for the entire workout. Keeping your heart rate elevatedmeans you're gonna burn more
calories during the workout,but the more critical aspect is what's gonna happenwhen the workout's over. Because of the cardioacceleration, it's allowing your metabolic rate to stay higherfor longer while you're doing nothing, and this is where thereal calorie burning adds up the rest of the day. So by doing cardio accelerationin between your weight training workouts, you not only burn morecalories during the workout,
but you burn more calorieslong after the workout's over. Now, I recommend doing abouta minute of cardio acceleration in between your sets duringthe quot;Shortcut to Shredquot; program. Those of you who are justgetting into training, you can still performcardio acceleration, just go at a slower pace. And for those of you who find isthat a minute is just too long, you can start at 30 seconds,with the goal, obviously,
