Your adrenal glands can be your leg toning friend or your leg toning foe. If your adrenal glands are consistently activated you will secrete a large amount of stress hormones and you leg toning will become impossible.
On the other hand, if you only activate your adrenal glands during very specific times of the day you can actually accelerate the amount of thigh fat you can lose.
So what is the easiest and most efficient way to stimulate your adrenal glands when you need them the most?
Caffeine is in a lot of different things you consume and by manipulating your intake you will be able to maximize the secretion of energizing hormones right before your leg toning workout, when you need it the most.
And remember that caffeine will not only increase your energy, but it will also effectively break down a larger amount of fat within your legs which will make it easier to slim them down.
So you’re really achieving two things here:
- You will have more energy.
- And you will break down more fat.
And another side benefit, is that once you start taking large amounts of caffeine you will drive down your levels of hunger which will make it infinitely easier to tolerate a caloric deficit.
But you have to be extremely careful with how you take caffeine because if you take too much of it your adrenal glands will become too active which in turn will have a lot of negative consequences.
You will be able to get high quality sleep, you will feel tired all the time and you’ll start to secrete a lot of metabolism destroying cortisol, and the list goes on.
So to avoid all these nasty side effects reduce your overall intake of caffeine during the day and simply increase your intake of caffeine during the morning and before your leg workouts.
By taking caffeine during these two time slots you will minimize its negative impact but you will still be able to get the biggest benefit.
Having caffeine early in the morning will jumpstart your metabolism and will give you energy for the rest of the day without interfering with your sleep schedule.
And taking that caffeine before your workout will allow you to break down a larger amount of thigh fat and will also allow you to exercise a lot harder.
