Advanced tip: Do interval exercises at least twice a week to burn more fat.
Have you ever heard of interval training? Interval training is where you workout fast or hard for a period of time followed by a period where you workout slow or easy.
For example---You may run for a minute and then walk the next minute.
Interval workouts should last no longer than 20 minutes but at least 10 minutes. So if you do an interval workout you are really working hard or fast only half the time and resting the other half by working out easy or slow.
Here are some more examples of some interval workouts you can do:
* You can Walk or Jog up and down flights of stairs?Going up is the hard part & going down is the easy part
* You can Run a lap around a track and then walk a lap around a track
* You can freestyle swim a lap real fast followed by a easy backstroke swim for a lap.
Just make sure that when you do the interval workouts that the hard or fast part is really intense. For example if you are doing a run/walk interval---Make sure that the run part is so intense that you just can't wait to start the walking part.
Why do intervals?
Think about it?while you are taking a shower after your interval workout you will still be losing weight. Even when you relax to watch TV you are still losing weight because that intense interval workout kept your metabolism (your fat burning furnace) running high hours after you finished working out?Interval training keeps your metabolism elevated throughout the day so you can burn more calories.
Interval training should be treated like weight training and be done 2-3 times a week.
