I do! Does the amount of calories burned make a difference in fat loss? I'm a dancer and I prefer your dance workouts but Inferno burns more calories. Is it just calories that matter for fat loss or does the type of workout itself make a difference as well, regardless of the calorie difference? Thanks! :)
Martial arts is, in my opinion, one of the best physical training techniques I have ever employed. The combination of principles similar to yoga for health and well being, plus the cardio, muscle control, and discipline make for the BEST workout you'll ever experience. It would be so great to have kung fu on here!
Oooo, definitely capoeira too.
A house workout would be AMAZING! I'm a dancer from the Bay Area and I've experienced some really great housing and waacking workshops over here. I think house would burn the most calories, especially latin house!! :)
I just had my first acai bowl today and totally fell in love. But it did seem like it was very high in sugar despite being whole, natural fruit. To be more specific, it was acai puree, a basic, flax granola,
chopped strawberries and banana topped with a big scoop of peanut butter and coconut flakes.
I am mostly on Ignite with occasional exceptions. I'm already allergic to gluten and dairy, and I'm really into health so I don't eat any added sugars or artificial sweeteners in the first place. The only difference is that I eat more carbs. Not a lot. But maybe small amounts three times a day. Quinoa, brown rice, oats. And I eat about 1600-1700 calories a day.
You have definitely helped out a lot! Just as a last curiosity, which yoga workout, or style, would you say would be the best for me to start focusing on? I've been doing yoga for years now but on and off so intermediate to hard won't be too difficult. Are the yoga workouts on here good enough or is there another I should venture out and discover? :)
Great! Thank you! I love all three of them, they are great instructors. But can yoga really melt the fat away the same way intense cardio can? I know it's probably a healthy balance of both but I'd like to focus the most on what will get me to where I want the fastest. Any workout plan suggestions? Coupling cardio and yoga at different times of the day perhaps? Thanks again!
Hi all! I've been doing daily burn for a few months now and have been getting great results. I pretty much do every workout, from Inferno to Yoga and everything in between. But lately, I feel like I've been looking a bit bulky and square. I am half Asian and was naturally lean and long before I gained about twenty pounds but now I seem to be retaining fat in my inner thighs and around my waist, and looking bulky and too athletic. How do, for instance, Martial Artists and yogi's stay so lean and long? I'd rather look like that than super muscular or square. I eat carbs multiple times a day but in small, gluten free amounts. I don't need to change my diet seeing as I don't eat the evil six at all.
And just to clarify, I understand that certain body types are shorter or stalkier than others and can't be long and lean but I'm 5' 7", small/medium boned, and come from a family of thin Scandinavians and Asians who are mostly mesomorphs. Something's wrong! Lol
I guess my question is, if I were to do one or two workouts on Dailyburn, which would be the most bang for my buck? Is it better to combine, for instance, a HIIT workout and then follow with a hatha yoga? Or should I just go for Inferno Intervals and skip the others altogether? Yet another question, are calories burnt just calories burnt? Or is there a more effective way to burn 500 calories like hatha yoga vs. HIIT or intense cardio/weights? These questions might be ridiculous but I'm trying to narrow down what exercise reacts best with my body. Thanks for the help!
Hi everyone! So, I'm happy to report that I've lost twelve pounds since April and I have about ten more to go. But I feel like I've hit a roadblock. I've done Inferno, Yoga, Move!, and some of the other workouts individually but I'm just not burning the fat anymore. I'm in the balance phase and nothing has really changed since Ignite since I already have a ton of food allergies to begin with but I am eating starchy carbs more often; brown rice, gluten free oats, corn, potatoes, etc. but only in small amounts two-three times a day. I don't think cutting out carbs entirely or just once a day would be a good idea! I get tired and fatigued easily and I feel that I am eating healthy and clean enough as it is so what should I do to jump start my weight loss again?? I always gain muscle five times faster than losing the fat so I end up looking bulky instead of lean. I want to look the way I looked back when I did martial arts! Lean and longgg, please help! Thanks!
For most of the last month and a half I've been eating a smoothie for breakfast and meat and veggies for lunch. But I read an article that if you're doing HIIT type workouts and not eating carbs it'll deplete your lean muscle mass and not burn fat. Is this true? I usually eat healthy carbs like a half cup of brown rice, gluten free millet-chia toast, quinoa, etc. but will it sabotage my fat loss if I start eating it for lunch and dinner? and possibly an occasional snack like oats or a rice cake?
I've been doing a ton of cardio and yoga but somehow I'm not losing the extra fat on my sides and that pooch in the front. Any suggestions? I eat extremely healthy and I don't eat any of the evil 6!
