Get Fit, Efficiently

If you have a fitness goal but hate fitting new things into your schedule. Here are fast, easy strategies to lose fat, build muscle and raise cardio:

Burn More Fat

1) Exercise intensely for short bursts to boost your metabolic rate. The Secret Bliss’s yoga flow can be done anywhere, and research on the Scientific 7-minute workout validates it’s equivalent to 2 hours in the gym.

Here’s the rationale behind safe supplements and biohacking.

2) Induce thermogenesis. Get so cold you shiver for at least 5 minutes, and your body will burn calories to generate heat. This is also a great way to wake up fully and quickly. You can eat thermogenetic foods like MCT or Cocunut oil, which you can double dip into Bulletproof coffee.

Build Muscle Faster

3) BCAAs reduce protein breakdown, increase muscle synthesis, and help trim fat. Gultamine speeds recovery. Building more muscle faster will raise your basal metabolic rate so you burn more calories during the day, even when resting.

Increase Your Endurance

4) Open your nose with Breathe Right to get more oxygen during workouts and sleep. NFL players use these, and your performance will improve quickly.

Sleep Less While Maintaining Performance

I discovered needing 30-45 minutes less sleep each night because my sleep quality is higher with a more oxygenated brain. Converting that time into two high intensity workouts, you can achieve the net gain of more [focused] exercise and better sleep without losing a minute, all for the $0.33 each breathing strip costs.

Of course, you might want to sleep more if you aren’t used to building lots of muscle, but the BCAAs can help with the synthesis and take some work off your brain at night.
