How To Burn Fat Fast

13th September 2017

Get Up Early!

If you can get out of bed early to do your work out first thing you’re much more likely to do this regularly compared to those who wait until after work! Get into the habit of getting up, having a healthy breakfast to kickstart your metabolism before your workout.

Try HIIT

High-Intensity Interval Training is a far more effective way of burning fat than the old and mind-numbing half hour on a treadmill. Studies show that staying at 80% of your heart rate for around 40 minutes amplifies your metabolism for up to19 hours.

Crank Up The Tunes

Whether you prefer Little Mix or Nirvana, listening to loud up-tempo music should be a constant in your exercise routine. It increases motivation and provides your body with a healthy rhythm to go on with.

Target Those Wobbly Bits.

Spot reduction isn’t a fitness myth. Studies have found that targeting stubborn areas with a workout before a prolonged period of cardio can help to shift that pesky fat sooner than you might think.

Use Weights To Your Advantage

It’s simple but effective. Wearing a weighted belt can increase your standard calorie burn by around 8%. Or, if you’re lifting, try out something a little heavier. Working with weights should prevent your body from entering the metabolic shutdown that can rear its head during weight loss, it keeps your routine varied and helps to provide physical signs of improvement. But be careful and work slowly. It’s easier to go for the smaller weights and count out a few hundred reps, but the fact is that completing fewer reps with heavier weights is a practice far more conducive to weight loss. Be ambitious but realistic.

Keep Trying New Things.

Adding a new exercise into your routine can make a big difference and keep you motivated!

Go Hard From The Get Go!

It may go against everything you’ve ever known to be true, but going hell for leather early on in your workout may just be the way forward, according to research undertaken by the College of New Jersey. According to them, working harder during the first half of your workout burns fat 23% more efficiently than the other way around.
