Tips to Lose Weight

People nowadays are starting to become very health conscious. Some spend a lot of money just to lose weight and achieve the body that they’ve been dreaming of. But sometimes, no matter how you try, your current diet and weight loss regimen may just not be suitable for you. Below are some tips so you can lose weight effectively.

Interval Training and High Intensity Training

High Intensity and Interval Training (HIIT) is a solid way to burn fat faster and lose a lot of pounds in the process. It is also good for those aging as they can be able to maintain a strong body.

Kurt Hester, the National Director of Performance of TD1 said “High Intensity Interval Training is more time efficient in caloric expenditure than a traditional cardio workout. Not only will your body burn more calories during HIIT workouts but you will also continue to burn more calories and fat in the 24 hours after a HIIT workout”

Sprints

A solid balance among cardio, diet, and weight training is needed for you to effectively lose weight. Under cardio is the usual running or sprinting. Mike Duffy, owner of MikeDuffysPT.com said “The body will burn primarily carbohydrates during the first twenty minutes of cardiovascular exercise. Right about minute twenty, the body shifts over and starts to burn stored body fat as the primary source of energy. You need a combination of both weight training and cardio to get fat off your body. Cardio alone will only train one type of muscle fiber and you’ll only be building one part of your fat-burning furnace. I see many people doing tons of cardio every day and not lifting weights. They never change the way they look,”

Weights

Earlier, the importance of cardio was emphasized. But cardio alone is not enough. You also have to hit the weights. Even if you start small and work your way up to heavier weights, gaining muscle is going to be put you on the fast track to hitting that goal.
