Trims inches 75% faster

First For Women - - Health -

Sum­mon­ing happy thoughts be­fore a work­out can go a long way to­ward get­ting you slim and sculpted. In a study pub­lished in the Jour­nal of Ap­plied Sport Psy­chol­ogy, sprint­ers who thought about some­thing that brought them joy (like spend­ing time with friends) be­fore the start of their race ran faster and en­joyed the ex­er­cise more than run­ners who fo­cused on neg­a­tive or neu­tral thoughts. And in a sep­a­rate study, sub­jects who par­tic­i­pated in play­ful ex­er­cise burned 75 per­cent more fat and gained 200 per­cent more lean mus­cle than those who en­gaged in tra­di­tional work­outs.
