Powerize Your Body With Medicine Ball Workouts, 4

While you're powerizing your body with medicine ball workouts, you will also be burning the body fat....

"Other things being equal, a muscular, powerful athlete will outperform a fat, slower athlete. Sports Fitness Hut's Fat Blaster Athletic Power Training System will give you your "lean and mean" athletic machine!"

I am seeing too many "fat athletes" on every level of competition--from the professional ranks to the kid ranks! If you want to be your best at your sport(s), you need to control your body fat.

The best way to burn body fat is to increase lean mass (including muscle mass) through regular weight training (including power and bodyweight exercises). Body composition is the key to peak athletic performance. Stated another way, how much lean mass does your body have in relation to fat mass. One major athletic goal should always be to decrease fat mass to an acceptable level for your sport.

Have you ever seen an overfat athlete who was performing her or his sport at a high level. That same athlete would perform at an even higher level if her or his body fat was at an acceptable level for athletes. Acceptable levels of body fat for athletes are as follows: Women 14-20%, Men 6-13%.

Some athletic positions, like a catcher in baseball, might require a little more body fat (like 10% instead of 8%). Whereas a swimmer would need less body fat. The point is this: if you are serious about your athletic performance, being overfat will not help you achieve your highest athletic potential.
