Have you always wanted to lose unwanted body fat in just a matter of two weeks with the smallest or no effort at all? If you have, you might read another presentation because you will not get the answer in this one. Really losing body fat takes work and time, which many sitting on stationary bicycles for hours will tell you.
However, there is a revolutionary approach to weight loss which at the same time is interesting and melts unwanted fat before you fall asleep of boredom on the treadmill. The answer is Interval Training in Q48. Interval training involves change in intensity in your work out and therefore it is called “interval”. It is the cousin of “interval training” called High Intensity Interval Training – or HIIT – which is a moderate to very high intensity mix which will have you melting fat like butter under the sun.
HIIT fat loss is without a doubt the best way to burn fat without causing the body to lose muscle tissue. The best thing about the HIIT training is that it not only allows you to metabolize fat, but more importantly it also allows you to burn calories for hours afterwards, which is somewhat like getting paid for extra hours while you didn’t do overtime – really convenient.
However, High Intensity Interval Training is not for everyone. As the name suggests; the training is so intense that it will make your legs and lungs ache and have you scream from the build-up in the muscles. Nevertheless, the results are amazing and truly worth the sweat and heart pounding efforts. It has been scientifically proven that High Intensity Interval Training helps burn nine times more unwanted fat than those who train the traditional way.
High Intensity Interval Training Methods
Interval training typically includes running. In order to increase the interval the trainee sprints a short distance (usually 50 to 100 yards), then changes directions and walks back to the starting point in order to repeat the process. It may take you some time and effort to get past 10 minute mark line.
HIIT is a killer for burning calories if you apply it the right way. It requires challenging yourself by using intervals where you push yourself to the limit – maximum activity – and periods with medium activity. For instance, you may do a 5 minute warm-up and then perform a maximum-activity by sprinting as fast as you can for as long as you can.
Then you immediately do another medium-activity by jogging for about 1 minute and then you do another sprint. In order to burn extra calories, repeat this process as many times as you possibly can. When you first start out, try aiming at getting past the 5 minute mark in total after the warm-up. Once you are a little more comfortable, you can start doing a 30 second medium-activity jog and an all out sprint to increase the intensity.
After your exercise sessions, it is natural for your body to go into recovering mode, but it continues to need oxygen at a sustained rate; a phenomenon also known as excess post-exercise oxygen consumption (EPOC). In this stage it is the aerobic system that uses oxygen to convert stored carbohydrates into energy. This simply means, that your body will continue to burn calories while you rest.
Although the results from HIIT can been seen and felt very quickly it is recommended that due to the intensity of this type of training an individual should train no more than once or twice a week and they should allow adequate recover time for maximum benefits.
