If, like me, you always thought that plenty of cardio was the way to help lose weight, we need to rethink. There have been a number of reports recently, backed by research, that show that Burst Training, or High Impact Interval Training (HIIT) is the way to go! Research on levels of cortisol in different types of athlees shows a higher level of cortisol in endurance athletes – and higher cortisol eventually leads to fat storage. Several of my family members were college athletes, and I know they did interval training – but I thought it was just for the “serious athlete,” not just for those of us trying to stay fit and lose weight at the same time!
This article, on Dr. Axe.com points to research that burst training can burn more than 3 times more body fat than moderate cardio!!
I’m about to share with you the single best exercise for burning fat. But first, I want to explain the number one mistake people are making in the gym, today.
This mistake is leading to some pretty big consequences like:
- Causing you to age faster
- Breaking down your joints
- Causing your body to STORE fat, instead of burn it
- Causing your hormones to get out of balance
The number one mistake is doing way too much cardio.
Most people who want to burn fat and lose weight falsely assume that going to the gym and doing traditional aerobic exercise, like jogging on the treadmill, is the best way to see results.
But recent research is proving that long distance cardiovascular exercise is NOT the fastest way to burn fat and lose weight.
