The Jiggle Effect on Faster Weight Loss

Exercise Physiologists who study the effects of

exercise on weight loss, have determined that

the "jiggling" or shaking of excess body fat

when someone walks fast or jogs, in combination

with the muscle contractions invlovled in that

activity, causes weight loss. I call it the

"jiggle effect". :)

This effect is caused by chemical messengers in

the body - in response to the "jiggle" and

muscle contractions - they say, "hey body, this

person needs to be able to move more efficiently,

let's get rid of some of this fat". So, above

and beyond the normal caloric expenditure of that

activity, these chemical messengers cause fat

loss to happen more easily.

So, how can you take advantage of the "jiggle"

effect? The more you "jiggle", and the more

intense the muscle contractions, the more

pronounced the effect. Thus, faster walking

is better than slower walking, and a slow

jog is better than a fast walk. A good way

to incorporate this into your aerobic exercise

is to use "intervals".

As you may know, I believe in making "intervals"

a major part of your aerobic exercise sessions.

I've received lots of encouraging feedback from

my subscribers who have been very successful

with interval training. Here are a few of the


"Greg, Thanks for all your help. I took your

advice and started using intervals in my walking

sessions. Woooooo! The results have been

dramatic. First of all in the way I feel. I have

never really felt good after exercise, but now

I think I'm getting that "high" thing. I feel

fantastic. I am so much more energetic all

day long now.

I had been struggling at a weight loss plateau

but this got me over it and I'm consistently

losing two to three pounds a week. Thanks

for turning me on to this."

"Hello Greg, I read on your site about intervals

and decided to give it a try. I really can't

believe how different my exercise is now.

I have much more muscle tone, and I know

this sounds crazy, but some weeks my

weight loss just seems to take off. I love


"Greg, About three months ago I started doing

intervals as you suggested and I actually

look forward to exercise now. It makes the

time pass quickly and I really feel pumped

when I finish. Thanks for the recommendation."

I receive a few messages similar to these

every week. Are you ready to give "intervals"

a try? Here's how to get started..

Intervals are brief periods (about one minute)

of more intense exercise mixed into your

regular aerobic exercise sessions. For

example, if you're walking, you would do a

one minute interval of faster walking about

every five minutes throughout your exercise


Here's how it will look.. you'll start with

your normal three to five minute warm-up and

then five minutes into your workout you do

your first interval, one minute of faster

walking (or perhaps jogging). At the end of

that minute you should be "winded" and ready

to slow down. You'll slow down to your normal

exercising speed for the next four minutes

and then your fifth minute is another one

minute interval. This pattern continues

throughout your exercise session.

You'll derive several benefits from intervals..

1. Intervals can help you to get past a

weight loss plateau.

2. Intervals increase your aerobic fitness

level by "pushing the envelope". While doing

your interval you cross the anaerobic

threshold into anaerobic metabolism, forcing

your body to become conditioned to more

intense exercise.

3. Your increased level of fitness means that

a given level of exercise will feel easier

and that you will be able to exercise at a

higher intensity which "burns" more calories.

4. Your increased level of fitness also means

that you will be less fatigued from daily

activities and you'll have more "energy"

throughout the day.

5. Intervals increase your basal metabolic

rate (BMR), causing you to burn more calories

24 hours-a-day.

6. Intervals cause you to "burn" more calories

during your exercise session and for several

hours afterwards.

7. Intervals will tone the involved muscles

to a greater degree than your regular aerobic

exercise would.

8. Intervals can make your exercise less

monotonous and help the time pass more


9. Intervals will energize you!

10. Intervals will activate the "jiggle affect"

If you'd like to put a little excitement into

your exercise, and you're looking for better

results, give intervals, and "jiggling" a try!
