Ready to be let in on a big secret? Going all-out with cardio isn’t the best way to burn fat.
Sure, it’s a great workout, and your heart and lungs are getting some great exercise, but your body isn’t burning fat in the most efficient way.
This is where interval training comes in.
What Does Interval Training Mean?
Interval training means:
- Switching between periods of high and low intensity cardio (like running and walking, or sprinting and jogging)
- You get the chance to cover more distance than you normally would if you were just going for burnout
- Your heart rate stays in the fat burn zone for the entire workout
There’s this amazing after-burn effect also caused by interval training which keeps your metabolism going strong long after your workout has ended.
Today, our Los Gatos personal trainer is going to show you the benefits of interval training, and why it should be a regular part of your weekly routine.
Not only is this form of working out a time saver for you, but you get the chance to exercise some of your largest muscle groups, thus burning more fat.
As you know, exercise is just one part of the equation, so I wanted to make sure we give you some straightforward nutrition advice as well.
