Let’s be honest. We’ve all over-indulged over the festive period. A few too many mince pies and sweets. A couple too many beers or glasses of wine. Our waistline will be sure to let us know just how naughty we’ve been but what can we do about it? How can we go about shifting the fat in the most effective ways possible to go from fatty to fitty? Read on to find out….
#1 – Interval Training
All cardio training is not equal. Whilst any form of exercise is better than none at all, studies have repeatedly shown that interval training is more effective for weight loss that steady state cardio. That is, you will burn more body fat overall by running fast for one minute, steady for two minutes and repeating several times than you will if you run at a steady pace for the duration of your workout. You don’t have to limit this approach to running either – you can adopt it on the bike, rowing machine, X-trainer, in a circuit class etc. The bottom line: get the most from your fat burning workouts by going down the interval training route.
