3 Reasons You’re Not Losing Weight With Your Training Program

Posted March 27, 2016 by

Starting your own weight loss journey can be daunting–particularly when it’s not the first time you’ve (unsuccessfully) made the attempt.

Between signing up for that expensive gym membership, to getting yourself out of bed and to the gym each morning (or on the way home after a long day at work), to the boring, long sessions on the treadmill, it only adds insult to injury when all that effort is seemingly for nothing–when after days and days of hard work, you step on the scale and… nada.

Luckily, it doesn’t have to be this way. With a few smart tweaks to your training, you can go from disappointed to delighted as you see the weight melt off your body.

Here at Training Ground, body transformations are our specialty. We work with hundreds of people each day, coaching them through highly-effective weight loss training programs that provide them with the results they had been missing with every other attempt they’d made to lose weight.

Below are three of the most important traits of our Transformation Training program that you can implement into your own training to boost your results and finally get yourself into the shape you’ve always wanted.

A look at our Transformation Training program–lots of weights and lots of results!

1. Skip the cardio and go for the weights.

Although most people equate cardio to weight loss, recent research provides evidence that making resistance training the main focus of your program provides significantly better results than a cardio-centric program when it comes to weight loss.

Lifting weights will ensure that you are dropping body fat, not muscle mass, helping you get lean instead of skinny fat. Additionally, if you perform your resistance training in a circuit format, you will still get the benefits of cardio because you will be elevating your heart rate for the entire session!

2. Boost the intensity and shorten the duration.

Surprisingly, most people work out for too long and it is counter-productive to their goals. Our own Transformation Training workouts are only 45 minutes long, but that is plenty of time to get everything done.

Instead of focusing on long workouts, we coach our clients to focus on increasing their effort during the session, which not only burns more calories, but allows them to get stronger over time. Another benefit to shorter workouts is that it’s easier to fit into your daily schedule–even if you’re super busy.

3. Make training a daily habit.

One of the biggest mistakes people make when they train is that they’re not consistent. One week they will work out 3 days, while the next they’ll only make it into the gym once. We’ve found that 4-5 hours of training per week–which equates to five 45-minute training sessions–is ideal for most people to see optimal results.

Having support and accountability to keep you on track can be crucial to helping you adopt this kind of structure as a lifestyle and to avoid burnout or self-sabotage.
