How Do I exercise to burn fat? High Intensity Interval Training is a great way to burn fat in only minutes a week. HIT is significantly better at helping you burn fat than conventional cardio workouts. Join us to learn more about how to exercise to burn fat in our Burstacize class at The Studio in Danville.
Doesn’t all exercise burn fat? Exercise research has changed and so should your workout! High Intensity Interval Training raises your growth hormone which tells your body to burn fat and build muscle. Conventional exercise performed for long periods of time at a consistent pace sends the message to your body to store fat and burn muscle. That is the exact opposite of what you want!
Why is High Intensity Interval Training superior to other exercise? Not all exercise is created equal! When you exercise to burn fat not only do you burn more fat during the workout you also burn more fat for the 24 hours after a short burst training session. This is the most efficient way to burn your fat and you will get great cardiovascular and endurance benefits.
What is High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT or HIT)? Interval training utilizes short and intense bursts that send a specific hormonal message to your body that targets your fat. It is a combination of short (30-60 second), high-intensity intervals followed by an active recovery period of 4 minutes. Think of a sprint and then active stretching or muscle isolations.
