The Fastest Way to Burn Fat
High intensity interval training or hiit as it is more commonly called in the fitness community is the best way to burn fat. Many exercise studies have proved that short burts of high intensity followed by 3 times as long resting times will increase your VO2 max and burn as much as 9 times as much fat as doing long slow distance (LSD) training. This is the reason why many people are abandoning the old school of thought to train on a treadmill for 50 minutes at a time.
Checking your Heart Rate
Checking your heart rate should be done immediately
after exercise. Easy places to examine your heart rate are:
* the wrist at the base of the thumb, called the
* the neck, just to the side of the Adam's apple, called the carotid
Count the number of pulses for 15 seconds and then
multiply by 4. Resting heart rate for an average adult is 72 bpm.
High intensity interval training needs to be performed 3-4 times per week to really show results. Any less time spent trying to gain huge fat loss results will be less successful.
