We love using intervals for improving metabolic conditioning, building cardiovascular endurance and burning fat fast!
And besides, who really enjoys walking on a treadmill at 3.5 turtle speed and 8% incline…
I mean don’t get me wrong, that does work to help burn fat, but honestly how much of a waste of time is it and not to mention how BORING it is!
Instead, we like to use the scientifically researched and proven 1:2 work to rest ratio to maximize fat burning and minimize your time in the gym!
And the best part is that in most cases, you can pick your poison in terms of “exercise” to get this done. You can go on the treadmill, the spin bike, the concept 2 rower or our favourite – the Assault Airdyne bike!
You can even go find a nice piece of open space to sprint or a nice steep hill if you like the outdoors 🙂
Now here’s the fat burning interval recipe:
1. Go as hard as you can for 20 seconds (that’s full out – everything you got)
2. Rest for twice as long so 40 seconds rest
3. Repeat for 8-10 rounds and you’ll be a fat burning inferno!
And don’t worry, the rest period is long enough for you get your bearings back for the following interval which is important if you don’t want to vomit half way through 🙂
Give this proven fat burning 1:2 work to rest interval a try this week!
