Our body is a highly sophisticated machines, able to adapt to various conditions and stresses of the surrounding environment. That's what causes us to survive this long as a superior species on this earth. What to do with the zig zag method of this?
When we practice with a heavy load, our muscles will be damaged, and in the process of repair, the muscle will adapt. The more frequently this occurs, the muscle will adapt by growing. So that when he was confronted with a heavy load again, he would not be broken again. The problem that happens with us is the way we think a little differently.
When we find a new method, weight training, and managed to increase muscle mass, we are a bit large plasticity in the mirror, we would say, this is really cool, I fit in this way, and I will wear this way again. Yesterday I made my way this could be a big muscle, the more often I use this way, my muscles will get bigger. But the reality is not so, and we begin to stress, and eventually stopped practicing.
The same thing happens with people who diet, height 160cm, weight 80kg, had dropped to 75kg, but at that time, the weight can not fall anymore. Various ways have taken but it weighs too but did not go down well. What happened?
What is happening is actually very simple, our bodies adapt. Our bodies get used to a strict diet, so he was bored and did not respond anymore. So also eat a lot yesterday, the muscles have gone up 3kg, but stopped, the muscle was saturated with a routine that also occur. Here we use this method of Zig Zag. This method we use to fool our bodies so that he was still adapting but still within our control.
Who have lost weight with cardio, and low-calorie diet, then stop and can not be weighed down again, could try to use the zig zag method is that by reducing the cardio, start weight training with cardio amount greater than his, and began to increase calories (not that eat freely and inconsequential).
Yesterday when a low-calorie diet and have done for 3 months, use the zig zag method of this for a month to increase calorie, and the target is just a little weight gain. If yesterday was down 5kg in 3 months, try this in a month raise around 0.5-1kg in this way. Once a month is over, back to cardio and lower calorie again.
That way, the body will be fooled, he will continue to adapt, and we can use the body's natural response is in accordance with our wishes. For those who want to lose weight, can try using the 3-month diet, 1 month raise the weight a bit, followed by 3 months of dieting again. Do not diet continued for 6 months continuously. The result would be too long and even in recent months has there will be no decrease again. That is what often happens normally.
Similarly, for those who want to increase muscle mass, muscle mass enhancer use the exercises for 3 months, followed by a month of cutting fat, then back again three months increased muscle mass. Always change your exercise, your body will continue to be adjusted and evolved in the direction we want.
Use a zig zag method is in all aspects, be it exercise, and diet and the amount of calorie intake. Some people who have advanced, even using this method to the diet in a matter of days, such as 5-day low-carb, high carb 2 days. What is the proper ratio? Is 5 days: 2 days? There also are using the six days: one day. Try and find themselves experimented was the right formula for your body. That way the fat will continue to be reduced and our muscles will be maintained. Is not that what we want?
