One of the common questions any fitness professional is asked is “What is the best way to burn the most fat?”.

Overall Fat Loss
As most MH readers would know, a lot of the transformation coaching I do is focussed on achieving extreme levels of fat loss for our celebrity clients in just eight weeks. It′s for that exact reason that I created the DARC protocol.
DARC (Dynamic Aerobic Resisted Conditioning) is a hybrid training method that takes into account all of the elements I′ve listed above, to ensure that every session burns as many calories as possible. In addition, it has also been designed to ensure that your metabolism is raised for hours after the workout is over by achieving high levels of EPOC (Excessive Post-exercise Oxygen Consumption) or Afterburn.
The other important factor that the DARC protocol takes into account is the fact that by increasing the body′s lean muscle mass, you are ensuring that you are burning more calories just living.
