Metabolic Activation Sprint Intervals

Target stubborn fat and surge metabolism for 24-48 hours with interval sprints

By: Eric Serrano MD and Scott H. Mendelson

Well designed interval sprints workouts can burn a tremendous amount of calories, but the key to success is elevated fat burning markers including metabolism and hormones for the following 24 to 48 hours. Our strive for 5 training sessions per week which may include three time efficient weight training and two short interval workouts supports peak rates of fat burning throughout the 7 day week.*

Steady state cardio causes fat storage

Steady state cardio teaches the body to store fat in many ways. High amounts of steady state cardio can increase stress hormones associated with stubborn belly and lower body fat accumulation. Adding further to the problem elevated stress hormones such as cortisol ruin insulin sensitivity which leads to an over release of fat STORAGE hormones every time that you eat.*

Interval sprints accelerate fat burning

Just like weight training the interval program must change in a strategic manner to prevent staleness. We rotate a number of stimuli including the length of the sprints vs. the jog period, venues, the total number of interval revolutions, resistance, incline and more.

Functional Fat Burning Sessions

GCX10 taken before interval sessions attacks stubborn fat while improving sprint quality and work capacity tremendously without any stimulants.*

Redefining Sprint Intensity

Definitions of intensity vary widely in this day and age. The sprinting portion of an interval should be very challenging and may result in some exercise related discomfort such as burning within the muscles. Sprints are not appropriate for people with injuries, health problems or a poor state of conditioning.

GCX10 Physique and Performance enhancer capsules taken thirty minutes before training attack stubborn fat while improve peak power as well as strength endurance. Client sprint quality and capacity to repeat a larger number of intervals improves dramatically when using the GCX10 which does not contain stimulants.

We recommend intervals for well conditioned trainees who are wanting to break into the low levels of body fat necessary to show off a razor sharp physique.

Client video evaluations

It is very common for our personalized training and nutrition program clients to send in videos of a sprinting sessions for evaluation of intensity levels. At times a reality check is needed for new clients to understand that they may think they are training hard, but a much higher level of performance is possible when pushing outside of their mental comfort zone.

100% MR and Muscle Synthesis proprietary ratios can increase the burning of stored fat as fuel during intense intervals.*

100% MR and Muscle Synthesis Powder proprietary ratios developed by Dr. Eric Serrano MD are scientifically engineered to increase the burning of stored fat as fuel during intense intervals.*

Resulting improvements in intensity and ultimately quality translate in much faster rates of body fat loss. Years of successful client feedback confirms the razor sharp six pack earned is worth the effort every time.

Pick the ideal interval sprint venues

We build client interval programs using a wide variety of venues including swimming, running, cycling, mountain biking, recumbent bikes, stair climbers, sled pushes, functional circuits and more. In many cases an injury history may require selection of only certain modes of exercise that fit the client needs. Rotating interval sprint venues provides fresh stimuli which support increased rates of fat burning while preventing overuse injuries.

Turn on your Afterburners

A critical window of fat burning opportunity exists following a challenging twenty to thirty minute interval session. Interval sprints deplete glycogen levels which helps to make more stored fat accessible to be burned as fuel. The 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis are muscle sparing in nature meaning they prevent exercise activities from breaking down muscle which makes stored fat the preferred fuel source for ongoing activity.*

100% MR and Muscle Synthesis can increase stored fat utilization

The 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis powder sipped before, during and after interval sprint sessions forces the body to use a larger percentage of stored fat as fuel while supporting an excellent performance. Gradually improve performance measured by the quality of the sprints has a huge impact on client fat burning potential.*
