Women's Weight Loss Problems Solved - Finally!


by Phil Beckett

When the term weight loss enters your mind, one of the first things you may think about is a strict diet.

This will actually cause you additional weight loss problems. Your body can't discriminate between intentional calorie deprivation (as in a diet), and starvation.

When you diet you will lose fat and muscle. This decrease in muscle mass will cause your metabolism to slow down meaning you will burn fewer and fewer fat calories. This is of course very bad news.

This does happen naturally and in most women will start around your mid 20's or so. Your metabolic rate will decrease by around five percent each decade of your life.

So as you age, weight loss becomes tougher and tougher.

If you have ever gone on a diet you already know that the weight comes back faster and faster the more you diet. It's a vicious cycle.

You may notice some weight loss success, but this is usually just muscle and water not fat, then it comes back with a vengeance very quickly.

In fact over 95% of women who "diet" will put all the weight back on plus at least an extra five pounds.

A lot of women seem to have difficulty with the commitment it takes; don't grasp the importance of progression and versatility; and lack the personal accountability to achieve their goals, which inevitably leads to weight loss disappointment.

Why?

Three reasons:
1. Bad information;
2. It's easy to cheat yourself, and...
3. No guidance.

Now, introducing the weight loss secret of periodization & progressive resistance.

Have you ever met someone who says they exercise week after week, month after month, even year after year and still can't see any dramatic weight loss?

Believe it or not, doing the same workout over and over will actually decrease your chances of reaching your weight loss objective.

You must learn how to progressively improve and fine-tune your efforts for maximum weight loss and fitness results.

When it comes to weight loss for women it's important to understand all phases of exercise, nutrition, and supplementation and how it all fits together.

This is basically defined as linear method of periodization.

Periodization for weight loss in women is the regulation of exercise, nutrition, and supplementation into basic workable units.

Every exercise session has to have some sort of meaning. There should be a definite training goal in mind. Your goal for a particular workout may be to perform one more repetition than last time, or to lift five more pounds.

The problem is that many workout programs for women's weight loss don't have a specific purpose that will lead to the short or long-term goals of you have.

Weight loss for you is the end result while periodization is how you get there. All exercise, nutrition, and supplementation chosen has to fulfill a purpose related to your ultimate weight loss target.

For a weight loss program to be effective there has to be a recruitment of a number of different training sessions that consist of different types of workouts. This periodization cycle must have specific meaning and purpose.

Over the complete term of a women's weight loss exercise program there are many different types of cycles including initiation, foundation, maximal strength recuperative and accumulation cycle, hypertrophy phase, basic strength, peak phase and a transition phase.

This is a very important aspect of weight loss for women that many coaches and personal trainers overlook. Certain cycles are intended to prepare the muscles for an upcoming training session.

Other cycles are designed around shocking the body into new growth and adaptation. This shock can come in many forms and can range from taking a week off to a high volume training cycle. Each cycle is designed with one specific purpose. The length of time for each cycle will vary.

Without taking the time to develop a solid foundation any gains will not be possible. Periodization can be designed a number of different ways and all are intended to bring out the highest level of weight loss success.

A lack of structure is why many women are destined to fail in their weight loss program. Without periodization you'll be "spinning your wheels" for years.
