Why Does a Fat Loss Routine Fail?By Sean Nalewanyjwww.musclegaintruth.com
Improving nutrition is the most important and valuable step to getting rid of body fat. However, if you want to maximize your efforts and optimize results, you also have to choose a proper fat loss routine.
The reason why your fat burning routine may fail is because it requires only moderate cardio sessions of about 45 to 60 minutes in length instead of short bursts of higher intensity cardio.
The results you can achieve with low intensity fat loss workouts cannot never match results achieved through high intensity, short duration fat loss workouts.
Many "experts" teach you that you should be able to have a conversation while you are exercising. It’s widely believed that keeping your oxygen supply in a steady balance with oxygen demand will force your body to use fat deposits as a primary source of energy.
However, this idea doesn’t really make much sense. This is because this type of cardio session only helps you burn fat DURING your exercise; there is no "afterburn" effect that will keep burning fat even when you are resting. Thus, with these above mentioned workouts, once you stop working out, you stop burning fat.
This isn't the case with a high intensity fat loss routine.
When your body in an intense, anaerobic phase where oxygen supply cannot meet the demand, your body begins burning carbohydrates for fuel. The benefit of your body burning carbs instead of fat for energy is that high intensity fat loss programs jack-up your metabolism, which allows you to burn calories long after your workout is done.
This means that a low intensity fat loss routine will burn a greater PERCENTAGE of fat DURING your workout, but a high intensity fat loss regimen will create a 24 hour fat burning effect that will result in a larger NET LOSS of total fat.
Intense cardio turbo-charges the metabolism and lights a fire that burns fat round the clock.
You can’t get this kind of effect from low intensity, long duration fat burning workouts. The moment you get off the treadmill, your fat burn stops! These types of fat loss workouts are much less effective because they can’t provide you with prolonged fat burning effects.
To speed your metabolism and burn fat faster and around the clock, switch from lengthy low intensity fat loss workouts to a high intensity cardio.
These type of fat loss routine can be accomplished in as little as 10 to 20 minutes. Perform simple exercises that don’t need a high degree of skill and focus on a high intensity level. Best choices for this are: treadmills, recumbent bikes and stair climbers.
Make sure you take advantage of the interval setting on these machines because this setting helps you alternate between high intensity and a slower pace. A fat loss routine is greatly enhanced by interval training.
