The Ultimate Fat Burning Exercise
Here at E4A, we’re darn good at helping folks develop the behaviors that lead to building a lean, healthy body.
In the The Ultimate Nutrition Course, we focus on harnessing the power of incredible body fuel in order to get out of our own way and encourage our body’s inner power. The results can be amazing and can come a lot faster than and more lasting than trying to earn them solely through exercise.
That being said, we DO hit the gym (and the beach, and swim, and bike, go to yoga, crossfit, you name it…) in order to maximize our lives. So if you have excess body fat you’re looking to lose, and you’re maximizing your potential via nutrition here’s our king exercise.
High Intensity Interval Training or HIIT is our number one single fat burning exercise. No it’s not the end all be all but if we had to pick 1 this would be it. HIIT, when practiced in conjunction with proper nutrition and a resistance workout is incredible. The reason being is that HIIT increases your metabolic rate far beyond the time of your workout, unlike regular cardio.
Keeping it simple and effective try interval sprints outdoors if weather permits, if not try the treadmill (as seen below, with an incline of course), the rowing machine, interval burps, etc, you name it.
Let us know how you make out.
Try adding these to your regimen 1 – 2 days per week according to this schedule. Before you know it you’ll be seeing increased results.
