Your One Hour per day Gym Routine isn’t Enough

Look. I’m over fitness experts and their faux sense of reality. You know the type.. perfect 8 pack zero percent body fat internet trainers that say “eat your fruits and veggies” and “workout for an hour a day and your could look like me” types.
Raise your hand if you’ve been taking that advice and still look like you …
Creating your body goals is really not that complicated but don’t let these experts fool you into believing its easy.
Outside of motivation and dedication, Here’s two concepts to live by:
(1) Shock your body
This literary means to do things that you are not comfortable doing. Cycling for an hour on low speed and breaking a little sweat is not going to cut it. Up your intensity and get tired. Do something uncomfortable for an hour: hit the track and run sprints, try the stair master on four levels higher than your use to or even go for high intensity interval training.
(2) Be calorie deficient 
Researchers estimate that you need a calorie deficit of 3500 calories per week to lose one pound of fat.
A caloric deficit is any shortage in the amount of calories consumed relative to the amount of calories required for maintenance of current body weight. A deficit can be created by reducing input/calories consumed. A deficit can also be created by increasing output without a corresponding increase in input.
Calculate how many calories your body requires for your current weight and then aim to be under. You don’t even have to calorie count (it’s more accurate if you do), you know your lifestyle and the types of foods you typically eat, simply start trimming from that list.
