Surge Training for Sculpting Legs Via Maximized Living

Surge Training Exercise Program
What is Surge Training?
Surge Training (also referred to as Burst training) is when you perform a series of "surges" in your workout followed by the same period of rest. During each surge you are pushing your body to its maximum potential and then resting for the same duration you performed the exercise.
How do I start Surge Training?
First, warm your body up with some gentle stretches, a brisk walk, or a few basic yoga poses.
Once you are ready, choose an exercise. Some ideas are running, biking, using an elliptical machine or a treadmill, swimming, running in place, or even jumping rope. You can be as creative as you would like the idea is to move and use maximum effort for every second of the surge.
Now, you want to perform each "Surge" by following the routine below and repeat it 3 times.
  • 10-30 seconds of high intensity SURGE movement
  • 10-30 seconds of recovery/rest or low intensity movement
  • 10-30 seconds of high intensity SURGE movement
  • 10-30 seconds of recovery or low intensity movement
  • 10-30 seconds of high intensity SURGE movement
  • 2 minutes of recovery or low intensity movement
This should be done 3 times per week - which amounts to 12 minutes of exercise a week. Yes, only 12 minutes!!!
Note: Interval times (up to 60 seconds) and the number of surges can be increased for more advanced athletes.
What are the benefits of Surge Training?
When you are SURGE Training, you are elevating your heart rate and working it to its maximum. Oxygen is rapidly pumping through your body in larger amounts, which helps burn fat in higher quantities and more efficiently. Even when you are resting your body will continue to burn fat and build muscle.
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the American College of Sports Medicine concluded in 1995 that intermittent, short surges of accumulated exercise increases the body's anaerobic capacity by 28 percent and increases oxygen intake.
Using surge training for weight loss relies on scientific proof to bring you maximized results with targeted effort to drop pounds and inches and to gain a better quality of life.

The MaxT3 Workout Plan via Maximized Living


Radically better results in a fraction of the time!

For many people exercise is more of an annual event. Because we have the limiting beliefs
that (1) we don’t have the time. (2) it’s too boring. (3) it’s too painful.
Again, renew your mind! Without fitness, you won’t win your race. Fortunately for you,
we’ve eliminated these excuses for the most part. You can’t get away from pushing the
muscles to some degree and raising your heart rate, otherwise it’s called “sitting!”
Fortunately for you, we’ve made exercise quick, doable, and super effective. Plus the
feeling you get for hours after is incredibly satisfying so you may actually learn to enjoy it!
We’re going to turn you into a fat-burning, muscle-building machine in only minutes
per week using our MaxT3 training plan. T3 equals time, type, and tempo (intensity level).
By optimizing these Ts properly, you can maximize your body’s ability to burn fat and
build muscle. This is done by directly impacting your body composition as well as
boosting the good hormones that cause you to be the kind of person you most
likely hate—someone who naturally tends to be thin and lean!

Hitting All Of Your Oxygen Systems And All 

Of Your Muscle Groups

We’re looking to influence oxygen (O2) and lean muscle here. To do so means
utilizing the multiple energy systems that work with and without O2 while you
exercise as well as working all three types of muscle fibers.Important: To keep
it super simple, the speed at which you move determines which energy system
you are focused on and which muscle fibers you’re activating. So in MaxT3, we
break exercise type down by speed.

Yummy No Bake - No Sugar Almond Fudge #Recipe for Friday - via Maximized Living

No Bake - No Sugar Almond Fudge

 Photo courtesy of thinkstock

This delicious treat is super easy to make, it good for you and isn't packed with all of the sugar and carbs.
 Preparation Time: 10 minutes + 1 hour chill | Fills an 8"x8" pan


Preparation Time: 10 minutes + 1 hour chill
2 cups raw creamy almond butter (unsalted)
1/2 cup coconut oil, softened
1/8 teaspoon of Kal Brand or Now Brand stevia concentrated powder - (sweetness To YOUR TASTE!)
1 teaspoon kosher or sea salt


Simply mix all the ingredients together in a medium bowl, until smooth and creamy.  I use a stand mixer with a paddle attachment.
(Tip: It helps if all the ingredients are at room temperature, to keep the coconut oil soft.)

Transfer the mixture to a square baking dish, or container, lined with parchment or wax paper, then smooth with a spatula, and freeze until solid (about an hour). Remove the fudge by lifting the paper out of the pan, then cut into squares and serve immediately.

Due to the nature of coconut oil, this fudge will melt if left at room temperature for long. Store in the freezer for best results. If you want to add a chocolate flavor try adding a scoop or two ofPerfect Protein to the mix.
