The 25-Minute Workout Which Burns Fat for 40 Hours!

40hr

Why Does High-Intensity-Interval-Training work so much better than old-fashioned cardio?

Forget about how many calories the cardio machines tell you that you are burning from your workout. The real measure of the exercise benefit is in how many calories your body burns AFTER the training is done!

In this chart, you see the results of a scientific study which measured the energy expenditure (calorie burning) during and after a HIIT workout vs. a regular effort workout (like jogging at a steady pace).

HIIT causes your body to burn more calories for 40 Hours After your workout. HIIT has been shown to help people lose twice as much bodyfat over 6 weeks of training (twice as much as people who did longer but average intensity workouts).

It was 15 years ago that I wrote Body-for-LIFE and taught people the ‘High-Point Training Method’ which is a form of HIIT. Today, more than a thousand scientific studies show it works best. Back then there were only a handful of studies and my suggestions of 20 to 30-minute workouts was criticized by the less informed ‘experts.’

HIIT is the BEST workout method for burning fat and also for improving heart health… and c’mon… EVERYONE can make time for 5-25 HIIT workouts!!

Transformation Camp Series Finishes With Success!

Bill Phillips Transformation Camp Successfully Finishes its 2-Year Run of Sold Out Events~

We have just this weekend’s Super 3-Day Camp to enjoy and then our two year project wraps up. With 37 Sold Out Camps and over 1,100 participants all total, the Transformation Camp Project went above and beyond my highest expectations for it! What an incredible experience it has been meeting and getting to know so many wonderful people, from all walks of life, who literally came from all corners of our world, with one thing in common: the desire to be healthier and to improve.

I never imagined this project would be so fun and enjoyable! It was also an honor and pleasure to be your teacher for the time you spent here. We shared a lot of laughter and some tears; good food and great workouts; we talked face to face about the challenges life brings our way; the mistakes we’ve made; and we helped each other find strength inside of us that many didn’t even know was there. In our speaking circles, I saw so much courage, I heard so much truth, I felt so much real, authentic, heart centered emotion. I was deeply touched and inspired by the strength and resiliency of the human spirit of our camp participants. And, I was stunned, over and over again, by the magnitude of the changes I saw camp participants make in the weeks after they went home and put their new knowledge into action. The power we each have to transform our lives in beyond measure.

I said two years ago when I started the camp series that it would be life changing. I know that intention has come to pass because it has absolutely changed mine… much more than I could have ever hoped for.  I am healthier, happier, more aware, and maybe even a little wiser than I was before. Camp has been a blessing. I have a beautiful and bright wife, Maria, and we have an exciting and inspiring life and future thanks to Transformation Camp. I have connected, in meaningful ways, with people from all over the world who have helped me learn so much about life and living.

THANK YOU so much to each person who traveled to Transformation Center and who gave me the special opportunity to share my knowledge and some of my over-flowing passion and enthusiasm for fitness with you! And thank you to all the volunteers, the workers, and to all our guest speakers for helping me so much — your efforts made a real and positive difference in the lives of many, including mine. For this, I am forever grateful and wish you the best of health always as your journey through life moves forward and continues to unfold.

I am diving into my next projects now; one of which is writing a book about what I learned and realized through my time at Transformation Center. The stories I have selected to share in the book will inspire you, teach you, uplift you, make you smile, and most of all… help you discover and believe in your own incredible power and ability to make stunning changes in your body and life!

I am also expanding our Right Nutraceuticals line of products and I am going to finally finish the new version of my website at Transformation.com which is all about how others have transformed their bodies and how YOU can do it too! I will keep you posted on these new and exciting endeavors which I hope will be as rewarding, inspiring, and fun as my two years at Transformation Camp!

Sincerely,
Bill Phillips

NOTE: I repeat, at this time we have no further Camps planned and there is not a spot left available to anyone. I apologize to all the people who wanted to experience Transformation Camp but were unable to get in due to high demand and low availability of positions. We have an invitation only alumni camp party this summer but that is it.

An Embarrassing Confession I Wish I Didn’t Have to Make

Bill Phillips Before to After

This is an Embarrassing Story to Tell, But if it Helps Someone Else get Back on Track with their Health, it will be Worth it to me. So here goes

Okay… let’s see. There are two photos of me posted along with my words. The photo on the right is me today, age 49. On the Left is ME in pretty bad condition, 2 years ago. In the summer of 2011 I had brutal accident which required emergency surgery and which put me in the hospital, then a wheelchair, then in a hospital bed at home for months. Just like everybody else, with inactivity and too much comfort food (ice cream is an incredible pain killer), I lost so much of my muscle and I gained fat… and I aged fast. I was so embarrassed and just literally in tears (inactivity and depression go hand in hand). But I knew what to do to pull out of the tailspin. Two years ago this month (in the Autumn of 2011 at age 47), I decided to completely change and rebuild my body and life.

I developed an new, inspiring vision for my future and transformed it into steps and stages… monthly, weekly, and daily goals were set and met. I created a new, positive environment and got support from true friends. Of course I had to completely change my eating and work hard in the weight room to rebuild my strength. I put my heart and soul into it and applied the key knowledge I have learned over the years… I put it to work very enthusiastically in my own life. I will tell the complete story and give my exact workout and nutrition and supplement program in an upcoming blog on my site BillPhillipsNews.com — watch for the whole story a week from today.

For now I can tell you this: I am more grateful for a healthy and strong body now than I EVER was before! I am grateful to be pain free and alive. My life has changed even more than my body since the devastating accident I had back in 2011. I wouldn’t go back and change any of it if I could because it has all been an edifying, humbling (although very embarrassing) and transformative experience. I have a new life today… a beautiful and smart and incredible wife now and a new fitness business which allows me to put my passion for fitness to work everyday!

0052~IMG_4260-Edit

I tell my students and clients today what I learned painfully and personally… we all respond the same way to inactivity and over eating… I am just like you. And you are just like me in that when you start working out and eating right and you follow a smart plan, your body will reward you with incredible changes and renewed health!

I’ve been there… I know what it is like to be stuck in a body that is in pain and not doing what you want it to. It nearly broke my spirit and I nearly threw in the towel and blamed it all on aging and being over the hill. But I snapped out of it one day and said ‘F+#@ This! I am not settling for this! I AM GOING TO GET MY BODY AND LIFE BACK ON TRACK!’ And that is what I did and what I am doing… I will continue to get leaner and stronger and healthier each month… I will never have a final ‘After photo’… I will have a lot of Progress Photos which show the steady results of hard and humble work aimed at helping me improve my body and mind more each day. And finally, let me tell you this…

Don’t be surprised if what feels like your greatest adversity today becomes your biggest blessing two years from now… that is what happened for me and I thank God each day for helping me wake up to LIFE again!!

(If you want my help rebuilding your own body for life, come work with me personally at my fitness center in Colorado… we have an incredible 3-day Transformation Camp each month where I share what I know and help you get motivated to transform like I have done myself. Camp is the best investment you will ever make in your health. If you might want my help, email me at Bill@Transformation.com and we’ll send you details.)

Mindset: A Key to going from Before to After

Transforming Patterns of Action

Patterns of action are like habits. They are the “rules” we follow automatically — the things we do that we don’t even think about. We’ve all got them. We have patterns of action for how we work, how we eat, how we relate to other people, how we do just about everything. What makes a pattern of action good or bad is simply whether it takes us closer to or pushes us further away from our goals.

Now that we’ve decided to change and we’ve become more clear about our future, we need to look at our patterns of action, which brings us to the next important question I need you to answer:
Which three patterns of action might prevent you from reaching your goals?

For example, if someone’s goal is to lose 20 pounds of fat, he would need to stop eating low-nutrient, high-calorie foods. Another pattern of action he might need to get rid of is skipping workouts. You see, these habits will prevent progress, so they have to go — they’re what I call “unauthorized.”

Think about it and write down the three patterns of action which you believe might hold you back. Once you’ve done that, please answer this question:
Which three new patterns of action do you need to establish to reach your goals?

For example, if someone’s goals include gaining 10 pounds of muscle, he would need to get in the habit of regularly lifting weights. He might need to start eating more often and getting more sleep.

You must identify both the patterns you will stop and the new ones you will start. You see, I’ve discovered one of the reasons so many people fail to break their bad habits is because they merely focus on what they shouldn’t be doing — what they shouldn’t eat, that they shouldn’t smoke or drink — all those things they shouldn’t do.

I recommend you focus just as much on things you should start doing because new patterns help “crowd out” the unauthorized ones.

By the time you’ve identified three patterns of action that are unauthorized and three new ones you need to start, you’ll be on your way. And, even though it might have taken you years to develop the patterns of action that brought you to this point in your life, it’s not going to take you anywhere near that long to change them; in fact, it takes less than four weeks before those new patterns of action will feel more natural to do than not do.

Chris Perry’s Successful Body and Health Transformation!

Chris Perry's Transformation
59 lbs of bodyfat gone! Replaced with Muscle, Strength, & Health

Congratulations to Transformation Camp Alumni Chris Perry! You are an inspiring example of overcoming adversity to succeed!

Chris, 45 years of age, father of 4, traveled from Ohio earlier this year to attend my 3-day Transformation Fitness Camp here in Colorado. I got to know Chris and learned about his dreams and goals. We worked out, went to dinner, talked about nutrition and supplements and we had some laughs too over the weekend. Chris went home with renewed focus and motivation as well as a complete plan-of-action in a 3-ring binder about the size of a dictionary.

Chris worked hard, let nothing stand in his way, and he gave it his all every day. Chris wanted to change and he was willing to change… those are essential keys to crossing the abyss between knowing and doing. Another key to his success… he didn’t let adversity stop him either! Chris lost his right leg in an automobile accident which certainly makes getting through my intense weight training and aerobic workouts more challenging, but Chris didn’t quit! He applied inner strength and courage to help him accomplish his goal!

Fast forward to this past weekend… Chris comes back to my Transformation Fitness Camp. He walks in the door, I do a double take, squint my eyes to make sure it was him… and my jaw dropped! Good Heavens! Wow did he change from the last time I saw him!!! It looked he was 10 years younger! He walked in with a confident smile, wearing some 32″ waist blue-jeans and a casual short sleeve shirt with his newly muscular arms bulging out! I said “Chris!? Way to go buddy! Just incredible!”

We worked out Saturday and he was lifting the same heavy weights I was! He is now literally twice as strong as he was before!

To anyone reading this… YOU CAN DO IT TOO! Look at what Chris Perry accomplished–he didn’t let his adversity stop him! He didn’t make excuses. He confronted the truth–he was overweight and out of shape and his entire life was suffering as a result. Chris said enough is enough! He made the decision to be healthy and strong again like he was when he did Body-for-LIFE successfully a decade ago. Chris came to see me in person at my 3-day fitness camp and he went home with a team of new friends who believed in him and a whole lot of energy and motivation.

He put the plan to work with determination and he gave it his all–he poured his heart and soul into each day’s workout, nutrition, and mindset work. The result? Incredible! And you know what? Chris is just getting started–he has so much energy and momentum right now that he is going to keep getting leaner and stronger and healthier! In the process, he is inspiring so many people, perhaps even YOU, to follow his example! If Chris can overcome his adversity, why can’t YOU? (The truth is YOU CAN!!)

+++Are you ready, like Chris was, to renew your Body, Health, and Energy for life? If your answer is “YES!” then please accept my invitation to join me for our October or November Transformation Camp, here at my Fitness Center in Colorado. At Camp, I can work with you personally, like I did with Chris, and we can develop a motivating and easy to follow plan of action that will take all the guess work out of exercise and nutrition for you. Chris and many others who’ve enjoyed success after attending Transformation Camp are calling it the best investment in themselves they’ve ever made. Please, if you are ready to make an incredible change in your body, health, and life, email me right away and let me know you’d like to participate in one of our upcoming camps.

Classic Interview: Jack LaLanne and Bill Phillips

—-Today’s blog is a look back to an interview I did, some years ago, with fitness icon Jack LaLanne for USA Today’s weekend paper. Jack LaLanne practiced what he preached and lived 96 energetic years and inspired millions of people to start working out and eating healthy. In the personal time I spent with Jack over the years, I learned a lot about his mindset and what kept him young at heart throughout his life. Two key things he said to me I keep, always, in the front of my mind:

LaLanne’s Lesson #1) Keep Moving! Jack was never inactive — he was strong as an ox the last time we worked out together and he was in his 80’s at the time!

LaLanne’s Lesson #2) Keep Challenging Yourself! Jack set goals with deadlines and used positive pressure to keep him motivated. For example, on his 70th birthday, he achieved a strength and endurance goal of swimming a mile and a half while shackled as he towed 70 boats in Long Beach Harbor (seriously, he actually did this!).

Jack LaLanne

Jack LaLanne (1947)

I’ll also never forget his philosophy on ‘warming up’ before a workout and ‘cooling down’ afterwards: “Bill, does a lion warm up before he bursts into action and runs full speed to get his dinner? No! Does he cool down afterwards? No!”

Jack taught us that eating healthy and exercising are the best medicine we’ll ever get. He was scoffed at for years as a ‘health-nut’ but five decades later, science proved him to be exactly right. He (and Arnold) inspired me to start lifting weights in my early teens and he has motivated me to keep working out right up to and through the final chapter.

I am very grateful to Mr. LaLanne and it was always an honor to do interviews with him, like the one reprinted in this blog. The USA Today journalist asked the questions and gave the introduction. ~Bill—-

Classic Interview: Jack LaLanne and Bill Phillips (March 21, 2001)

Jack LaLanne and Bill Phillips

Jack LaLanne and Bill Phillips

On an impossibly perfect California afternoon recently, two generations of fitness gurus met for lunch at the Four Seasons Hotel in Santa Barbara to discuss health and fitness. The old guard was represented by the “Godfather of Fitness,” Jack La Lanne. Representing another generation was Bill Phillips, the Colorado native who penned the mega-successful fitness book, Body-for-LIFE. As the two shared breakfast (eggs and fresh fruit) La Lanne, a quick-witted testament to the benefits of nutrition and exercise, summed up his perspective: “You don’t get old from calendar years,” he said, removing the yolk from one of his four hard-boiled eggs. “You get old from inactivity.”

USA WEEKEND: What would you tell a 50-year-old who is thinking of starting a regular exercise regimen?
LA LANNE: Get a physical. Then just start walking around the house. You can join a gym. There are a lot of good books and tapes, too.
PHILLIPS: Before even considering an exercise and nutrition program, I recommend that the person put on some swim trunks and have somebody take a photo of them. Then take a good look and ask yourself: Is this who I really am? If you don’t see yourself as that, you have the opportunity to change it. But you need to change your mindset.
LA LANNE: I tell people that the scales lie. You may have played basketball and weighed 175 pounds, with a 30-inch waist, back when you were in college. And you may still weigh 175 at 55. But you probably have a 35-inch waist and you’ve probably lost 30 or 40 pounds of muscle — and gained 30 or 40 pounds of fat. The tape measure doesn’t lie. Get that tape measure out and put it on your hips and your waist. Keep checking it. And keep exercising and cutting those calories down until that tape measure gets close to where you were in your prime.
PHILLIPS: Progress is made where progress is measured. People will set a New Year’s resolution: “I’m gonna get in shape this year.” But they don’t set a parameter for how they’re gonna measure it. Or if they do measure it, they wait until the first day of the next year. You’d never run a business that way. Document your progress.

USA WEEKEND: Should people who are 50 and over dive into the sort of workout program someone much younger would do?
PHILLIPS: Tufts is a leading university in research on strength training and muscle metabolism in people over 50, and they’ve shown that muscle cells strengthen in response to intense exercise — whether you’re 18 or 88. But the intensity is what’s lacking in most people’s workouts. And there are doctors who’ll give you the advice, “Well, don’t push it.”
LA LANNE: That’s ridiculous. What the hell do doctors know about exercise? Most of them know zero. You gotta push elderly people to failure like anybody else. Then the body responds.

USA WEEKEND: Lots of people start fitness routines. But how do you sustain it over a period of months, even years?

Bill Phillips (age 17) inspired by Jack LaLanne to start working out and lifting weights early in life.

Bill Phillips (age 17) inspired by Jack LaLanne to start working out and lifting weights early in life.

PHILLIPS: I’m a believer in routine. I like to see people work out at the same time each day.
LA LANNE: And make it quick. One of the reasons so many people fail is they get on this treadmill for an hour or an hour and a half. That’s totally unnecessary. If it’s cardiovascular, you don’t need more than 15 to 17 or 18 minutes if it’s vigorous.
PHILLIPS: We also talk about progress — not perfection — as one of the things that helps change the mindset. People feel so guilty about not exercising. Especially people over 50, who feel like they’ve gone a lifetime without taking care of themselves. Instead of aiming for perfection, you should try to celebrate the progress you’re making.

USA WEEKEND: What’s the biggest mistake people make when they decide to get into shape?
LA LANNE: Their goals are too high. You start out with an hour on the treadmill, then another hour of lifting — hell, in two weeks you’re not doing anything anymore. You gotta be reasonable.
PHILLIPS: Sometimes people — especially people over 40 — underestimate what they really are capable of. They believe they’re not capable of doing something great. I tell people who are over 40, “I don’t want your best. I want better than that. I want better than what you perceive your best is.”

USA WEEKEND: How do you guys feel about nutritional supplements?
LA LANNE: I was the first one to come out with a protein supplement, so I think they’re useful. I was also the first one to come out with the nutrition bars.
PHILLIPS: Some supplements work; some don’t. It can be faddish like diets. What about these people who say you should eliminate carbohydrates from your diet?
LA LANNE: No!
PHILLIPS: I agree. The brain’s preferred source of fuel is glucose/carbohydrates. And when you go on a low-carb/high-protein diet, your brain is using low-octane fuel. You’ll be a little groggy, a little grumpy.

USA WEEKEND: If somebody was gonna do only one exercise …
LA LANNE: Swimming. No doubt about it.
PHILLIPS: I’m always asking people to do something in their mind [first]. So if they’re gonna do one exercise, it would be to ask themselves what they want to change about themselves in the next 12 weeks. Once they solve that, the body will follow.
LA LANNE: You can’t separate the mind and body. It’s impossible.

USA WEEKEND: What should people do first thing in the morning?
LA LANNE: Count your blessings.
PHILLIPS: Plan what you’re gonna do that day and commit to it.
