Amazon Prime Day is here…again? I always thought it was a once-a-year thing, but I guess the deals must go on!
Before you go drop $300 on a new range finder, do you have a “problem area” on your body where the fat just refuses to melt?
For me, and every male in our family, it’s the love handles.
The fat is like the buddy who comes over, drinks all your beer, and never leaves.
A lot of golfers struggle with back fat, stomach fat, arm fat, and everything in between.
So, how do we target specific areas to lose fat?
The truth is…we can’t.
I know, I know. When I learned that fact, I was pretty bummed, but stick with me. There’s hope!
Depending on how you’re wired will determine the order of body areas that lose fat first.
Our co-founder Ryan continuously stays around 175lbs, but he’s gotten so dialed in that he knows when he hits 172-173lbs, his “hockey a$$” starts to disappear. From 172 on down, that’s when his body starts using his love handles for energy.
It’s out of his control, so he just sticks with the program. And the problem areas take care of themselves.
The fact is, we have to do the same things to get rid of fat in our “problem areas” as we do to get rid of fat anywhere else – we just don’t get to choose the order.
Now, it sounds simple that calories in need to be less than calories out to burn fat – and it is simple. But it’s not always easy.
DO NOT severely reduce calories. It’s unhealthy, unsustainable and will stall your results.
Instead, a great way to get your calories down without feeling hungry all the time is to replace high-calorie foods with fibrous vegetables and leaner cuts of meat.
Swap out soda and other high-calorie drinks with water or lower-calorie options – our Crew member Bill lost 15lbs just cutting out his daily sodas.
The big takeaway is to eliminate empty calories (sooo many come in liquid form), while still feeling full after you eat.
Pro Tip: Protein helps keeps you full for longer.
And of course, a healthy way to skew the calories in your favor is through your workouts.
Warning: You cannot out-work a bad diet. So, don’t constantly reward yourself with a pumpkin-spice latte after your workouts – use the 80/20 or 90/20 rule.
The more muscle you gain through your workous, the easier it is to burn excess calories.
Pro Tip: Our re-released Golfer’s Fat Loss Blueprint focuses a lot on your large muscle groups like your back, chest and legs as they burn more calories and fat than smaller muscles.
BUT, be careful b/c we also can’t forget about the smaller muscle groups, otherwise we end up completely out of balance – a total golfing nightmare.
I’ve said a lot here, so let’s dumb it down to my level.
Everything above comes down to being consistent with a good nutrition and exercise program.
There’s no magic diet. No magic workout. No magic pill.
All I can tell you is what works for our golfers. We give you the program to tip the scales of success in your favor…you just show up and do the work.
Let’s do this!
