Harvard Study Confirms: Aerobics and Cardio Are DEAD

Here’s why Dr. Sears tells his patients aerobics and cardio are not the way to exercise:

  • They won’t make you lean!
  • They won’t protect you from heart disease!
  • They won’t even boost your energy!

Even worse, aerobic and cardio training – the kind most doctors and even the federal government promote as the path to good health – can actually wreck your body. Do enough, and it will make you sick, tired, and old before your time.

This Harvard Health Professionals Study backs me him up on this.  Researchers followed over 7,000 people. They found that the key to protect your heart is exactly the opposite of “cardio.”   It’s not endurance. It’s intensity. In fact, they proved that the more intense the exertion, the lower their risk of heart disease.

And that’s not all. Another Harvard study compared vigorous and light exercise.

Those who performed exercise that is more vigorous had a lower risk of death than those who performed less vigorous exercise.

Aerobics and cardio are low-intensity, long-duration exercises. This Harvard study clearly shows that this kind of exercise increases your risk of heart disease and death.

Enduring hours of drudgery only to increase your risk of disease doesn’t make sense. It isn’t natural, and it doesn’t work.

As Dr. Sears showed Terri, there’s a better way to burn fat, boost your lungpower, and build a strong heart.

PACE Is the Most Effective Fat Burner Known to Man… and the Easiest

It shocks most people, but Terri started doing PACE by walking for 45 seconds, then stopping to rest. It’s true. All she did was walk for a few seconds and rest for a few seconds, then repeat. That was the level she felt comfortable with. It wasn’t intimidating.

Starting with a very humble and easy workout,  Dr. Sears and Terri slowly made progressive changes to each of her workouts. Within the space of just a few weeks, Terri went from walking for 45 seconds to “power-walking” up steep hills.  Today she can run, sprint, and do calisthenics.

As you can see, Terri made remarkable progress:

Over the course of 11 months, Terri:

* Lost 68 pounds of fat
* Built 14 pounds of new muscle
* Raised HDL (good cholesterol) by over 33%
* Lowered Triglycerides (blood fat) by over 36%

PACE is proving effective across the board, from fat loss to cardiovascular health and beyond. Lowering triglycerides is especially helpful for Terri, because triglycerides are more of a risk factor for heart disease than cholesterol – especially in women.

Terri’s lungpower is on the rise, too.

Terri’s office is on the second floor. Before she started PACE, she would always take the elevator. Now she bounds up the 25 steps three or four times a day without thinking about it.

Please note that Terri’s results are hers and not yours.  There is no such thing as typical results and what worked for Terri, might not work for you.  But you will never know until you try it.

Kick up the Pace and see what happens in your life!

    Is the Harvard studying confirming this available somewhere? This is profound contrarian thinking and should be published so that we know it is not a hoax.

    I haven’t found the study itself online, but here are the references for the different Harvard studies done that Dr. Sears talks about:
