How To Do Intervals
How To Change up your Cardio for Faster Fat Loss
Forget traditional, long duration cardio….it’s the main culprit to stalled fat loss results!
Yep…the LONGER your Cardio Session, the more ineffective it becomes at burning fat ~ especially belly fat.
Not only do long bouts of cardio prevent you from achieving fast fat loss, these sessions actually slow your metabolism and cause your body to store more fat – not to mention significantly increase you appetite and set you up to overeat.
The solution …
Switch To Short Burst Intervals
The shorter, more-intense your session, the more you will burn more overall calories and preserve muscle, which will not only boost your metabolism but help you created that tight and lean look as you reach your ideal body.
What Are Intervals?
Intervals are simply brief, high intensity periods of exercise (where you work out as intensely as you can for your fitness level – anywhere from a 7 to a 9 on a perceived rate of exertion scale) alternated with active recovery periods (“off”) where you slow down just long enough to catch your breath before you repeat this circuit again.
For Example as demonstrated in the Video:
30 Seconds of Jump Rope (30 sec “ON”)
30 seconds of Marching (30 sec “OFF”)
Repeat 10 times
Your Interval Training Session can last anywhere from 10-15 minutes.
The goal – and the effectiveness – is to challenge yourself so that by the end of 10-15 minutes – you have had one heck of a workout!
If you could easily go another 10-15 min, then you have not truly worked hard enough. Go back and change up the variables – choosing a different movement, increase the effort and intensity, decrease the rest period, etc.
The combinations and formats you could choose for your Interval Training Workout are about endless.
As seen in the video….No special equipment necessary – in fact, the more you USE your Body – the more effective your Fat Loss results!
Body weight intervals are more effective for you are using all the major muscles in your body. They are also great for when you are short on time or cannot leave the house and sure help if you are in need a quick burst of energy.
Studies -as well as countless testimonials of Cardio Queens – prove high intensity cardio workouts “Intervals” can provide all of the following fitness benefits:
* dramatically boost metabolism – both during AND after exercise
* faster rate of body fat-to-energy conversion
* preserves lean muscle (muscle is your metabolism – you do not what to lose this!)
* significant increase in aerobic capacity (Max VO2) = increased endurance and stamina
The Main Reason Why Busy Moms Love Intervals
**They are short!**
As busy women, we just do not have the TIME to spend an hour a day 6 to 7 days each and every week on the treadmill.
If you can get your cardio done in a matter of minutes AND feel an amazing amount of energy -YOU will KEEP Doing It – this is a realistic plan that lends to the ease of being consistent!
This helps you solve you “I just can’t stick to it” problem!
So once again…the answer is Yes you Can get more out of doing less….
Short Burst Resistance Training + Interval Training = the complete Fat Loss Solution – 15 minutes a workout!
Working Out Effectively Will Only Take You So Far
Once you are challenging your body, increasing your lean muscle and boosting your metabolism you will lose fat when you are in a caloric deficit…..and the only way we find ourselves NOT in a caloric deficit is when we are taking in more calories that we are burning.
(i.e. What and How Much are you eating?)
If you are willing to make an effort to try something different but are hesitant…I really want you to think about the hours you spend each week exercising. Is this all the effort getting you results or getting nowhere.
By switching to a more effective workout style, imagine how you could take the time that was spent “exercising” on things that do give you a positive return, ways to better spend your time to enhance your life. ~
