Dangers of Too Much Exercise – Part 2

3/21/15 –


Do you still think you have to work out for hours on the treadmill to lose fat and prevent muscle loss?

That’s a sad lie you’ve been fed for years.
It’s that lie that has unfortunately caused you to gain fat each year, as you end up more frustrated, and keeps you working out longer with absolute zero results.

The real truth – working out longer can actually cause you to store MORE fat, AGE your skin, and HURT your joints.  I’ve seen the damage that long boring cardio does to people’s bodies during my last 17 years of being a Physical Therapist.  That’s why I’m so passionate about letting people know the dangers of long boring cardio.  I want to spare you future joint pain, injuries, fat gain, and premature aging.

Top Dangers of Long Boring Cardio:

1.  It Blocks Fat Loss

The “stress” hormone cortisol, a hormone that actually causes fat storage is created with long boring cardio.

2.  It Hurts Your Joints

When you run and your foot hits the treadmill it experiences 3 times your bodyweight in impact stress. That means that if you weigh 150 pounds, every stride you take puts 450 pounds of pressure on your legs and back.

Your joints can’t handle that stress for long periods of time. Your cartilage will break down and cause debilitating pain in your knees, hips, ankles, feet and back.

Every single step sends a harmful force through your entire lower body which can devastate your joints. You’ve seen former runners suffer and overtrained athletes limp along, many needing knee or hip replacements at age 40 or have chronic overuse injuries that prevent them from walking without pain.  I’ve seen this time and again over my last 17 years as a Physical Therapist.

3.  It ages you faster

Your body wasn’t made to endure long boring cardio.   A recent article in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research found that: Cardio causes immense oxidative damage and a flood of free radicals to the body.

(Cakir-Atabek, H., Demir, S., Pinarbassili, R., Bunduz, N. Effects of Different Resistance Training Intensity on Indices of Oxidative Stress. Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research. September 2010. 24(9), 2491-2498.)

In truth, all exercises causes some form of oxidative damage, however when done for prolonged periods like with long boring cardio – the damage produces chronic inflammation throughout your body that causes damage to your organs and your skin – the result?  Your body and skin age faster. You look older.


So you see, it’s not your fault you’re not seeing results. You simply need to ignite your hormones into a fat burning mode with the right kind of exercise instead of long boring cardio workouts.

Short Burst Workouts will help you turbocharge your fat burning hormones like Human Growth Hormone (HGH), which not only ignites fat burning, but is also know as the Youth Hormone – so your skin will look amazing.  You can look up to 10 years younger with these Short Burst Workouts!  How great is that?

I created my program Toned in Ten based on the premise of these short burst workout results.    You can actually fix your broken metabolism, and get fat burning and youth boosting results.  You’ll see tighter, smoother skin as you melt away cellulite and fat without hurting your joints.   You can prevent age related muscle loss with these simple changes to your workouts that will maximize your results!

I am living proof of what my program can do for you.  Many people don’t believe me when I tell them I’m 41 years old – most people assume I’m still in my twenties!  A lovely problem to endure.   😉

With the Toned in Ten program you can discover exactly how to look younger and have the body you’ve always wanted – all while you work out LESS and ignite your hormones to finally burn fat at ANY AGE.  After all, if I can have the skin and body of someone much younger, imagine what my workouts can do for you?
