Burn Fat Faster With Proven High Intensity Interval Training

How do you make impressive changes to your body? You want to lose those extra pounds and get that sculpted, lean healthy 6 pack body. Many of you are probably thinking you have to spend endless hours on a treadmill or other cardio machine, right? This is not necessary.

Shorter durations of high intensity interval training also called HIIT produces faster more fundamental results over long duration moderate intensity cardio workouts. Studies have shown that people doing high intensity interval training workouts have lost significantly more body fat compared to people doing low intensity long duration workouts.

Fat burns quicker with high intensity training because you end up burning calories long after your work out is finished. HIIT training is so effective because it revs up your metabolism which will cause your body to burn more calories.

So if you want the fastest way to burn fat and speed up your results, start condensing your workouts using high intensity interval training instead of long, slow cycling cardios like you've been told in the past.

Now that you have heard of these benefits and how it can positively effect you, try this with your next workout and see the improvements.

Here are 3 different examples of HIIT workouts ….

Variation 1 – BASIC
Warm-up for 3 to 5 minutes. (cycling, jump roping, treadmill etc.)
Exercise to high intensity for 1 minute.
Then exercise with low intensity for 1minute.
Repeat 6 to 8 times.
When finished cool down for 5 to 7 minutes

Variation 2 – The Build Up
Warm-up for 3 to 5 minutes. (cycling, jump roping, treadmill etc.)
Exercise with high intensity for 30 seconds then 1 minute of low intensity.
Exercise with high intensity for 45 seconds then 1 minute of low intensity.
Exercise with high intensity for 60 seconds then 1 minute of low intensity
Exercise with high intensity fro 90 seconds then 1 minute of low intensity.
Then Reverse the high intensity …. 60, 45, 30
When finished cool down for 5 to 7 minutes

Variation 3 – The Challenge
Warm-up for 3 to 5 minutes. (cycling, jump roping, treadmill etc.)
Exercise with high intensity for 2 minutes then 30 seconds with a even HIGHER intensity Followed by 2 minutes of low intensity.
Repeat 3 to 6 times.

If your thinking this looks too difficult, remember you go at your OWN high level of intensity. Slow down a bit if you can not make it through the intervals. You want to go at a pace where you can complete each interval without having to go crazy with them. Then as you get stronger increase YOUR intensity. Keep challenging yourself.

Here is an example … if you usually work out on a stationary bike at level 6 try taking your level up to level 9 during the high intensity interval and then take it down to a lower level during the low intensity interval. Great success to you all!
