Burn Fat With Interval Training

Monday 16th November 2009

If you are one of those many people carrying excess weight around the stomach area (me included), then you may want to pay particular attention to what I am about to tell you.

Like most of you out there, I have spent hours upon hours trying to perfect my crunches in the hope that my tummy would eventually shrink. Doesn't work does it?

No matter how many abdominal exercises you do, you cannot shift stubborn tummy fat, and do you know why? It's because you need to shed fat from the rest of your body too to make a difference to your stomach...and this is where Interval Training comes in.

What Is Interval Training?

It is basically a form of exercise which consists of two phases. The first phase (Sprint Interval) is when you exercise at an intense rate for a set period of time, and the second phase (Rest Intervals) are where you reduce the intensity of your exercise for a set period of time.

For many years we have been told that slow and steady cardiovascular workouts were the way to go, but more recent research has discovered that the true way to loose body fat, quickly and healthily, is with the process of Interval Training.

I Know the title does sound a little intense, but trust me when I say that anybody, of any fitness level can start this type of work out straight away.

If you have not exercised in a while, start off jogging on the spot for as long as you possibly can, even if it is just five minutes, then go into your rest intervals by doing a few lunges and stretches for five minutes, then repeat the process for just twenty minutes a day. I first tried it a few weeks ago and was shocked to find that I actually found it fun!

As time goes on, really start to push yourself and increase the time length or the intensity of your exercise. You will be amazed at how much better you will look and feel.

So, remember that the only way to lose the excess fat from your stomach, and everywhere else, is to burn it off. Crunches won't shift it, but Interval Training will!
