5 Ways To Burn Fat Faster
You’ve made up your mind to get into shape. You’re committed to a workout program and your kitchen is stocked with healthy foods. Besides consistently working out and sticking to your nutrition plan, there are a few more things you can do to increase your chances for success.
1. Turn up the intensity early. Studies show that people who work out harder during the first half of the workout and ease up a little bit in the second half burn up to 23% more fat than people who start out slowly. So that means after you workout, crank up your workout intensity and really give it your all.
2. Be sure to HIIT it hard. You probably have heard that one of of the best ways to burn fat is with High Intensity Interval Training also called HIIT. It involves short intervals of maximum intensity cardio, followed by intervals of low intensity cardio or rest. Research shows that people who do HIIT can lose 3 times as much fat as those who do steady cardio. For fun, high energy HIIT workouts you can try Turbo Fire.
3. Lift heavier weights for fewer reps. Doing this will help keep your body in fat burning mode long after your workout. It will also boost your metabolism. Women shouldn’t be afraid to lift heavier weight. We don’t have enough testosterone to bulk up like The Incredible Hulk. A lean, strong body actually helps you burn calories around the clock.
4. Get Enough Omega 3’s. It’s a known fact that fish oil and fish oil supplements help burn fat because of their high levels of Omega 3’s. Studies show that people who consume fish oil burn more fat than people who don’t. And when fish oil is combined with exercise the results were even better.
5. Not eating enough. We all know that in order to lose weight we need to eat fewer calories. But cutting your calories too quickly can cause your metabolism to slow down, because your body thinks it’s starving and desperately holds onto fat.
