You’re being lied to. Again.
This time I’m not talking about how the giant food corporations lie to you about what’s in your favorite foods, or how they sneak in toxic ingredients (like trans-fats) that make you sick and unhealthy…
It’s not another lie about how cardio machines overestimate the number of calories you burn (the elliptical is the worst offender, claiming you burn 40% more calories than you really do)…
And it’s not another lie about how crunches give you a flat stomach (they don’t…and it would take 22,000 crunches to burn off one pound of belly fat – who has time for that?)…
No, today you are being lied to by that little gadget on your wrist… your so-called “activity tracker”.
It doesn’t matter what brand you have… those expensive toys are lying to you.
One study from the Human Performance Laboratory at Ball State University found that fitness trackers overestimate calorie burn between 10-23%. That’s a big deal and adds up almost as many calories as you’d get in a chocolate bar.
You are much better off focusing on your 4-minute miracle workouts than you are trying to get 10,000 steps per day. Not only is this type of exercise more “truthy”, but it’s also easier to slip in 4-minutes of exercise than 10,000 steps.
“Oh, c’mon Craig,” you’re thinking, “what can you really get done in just 4-minutes?”
The truth is… A lot!
We’ll have thousands of people from around the world trying to get on the call (that’s how great the demand is for the 3 secrets), so make sure you arrive early and claim your spot (as our video technology only allows a certain number of attendees… and I don’t want you to miss out.)
And here’s a new 4-minute miracle that you can do while you wait for the coaching session to kick-off.
The NEW 4-Minute “Build Up” Fat-Burning Miracle
– Do each exercise for 30 seconds.
– Do not rest between exercises.
1) Bodyweight Squat
2) Rocking Plank
3) Reverse Lunge (alternating sides)
4) Cross-Body Mountain Climber
5) Jumping Jacks
6) Close-Grip Pushups (with feet elevated 4-6 inches) or Kneeling Pushups
7) Total Body Extension
8) Burpees or Bodyweight Squat
As you can see, the exercises get progressively more difficult as you go through the circuit, giving you a built-in warm-up.
Follow that with Missi’s 9 super stretches if you need to loosen up after the circuit. There’s no lying in stretching! (Okay, maybe a little lying down, but each stretch is 100% truthy!)
Enjoy your new Monday morning 4-Minute Miracle.
Have a great week!
Taking care of your mornings,
