How To Burn MORE Fat In Less Time

By Kevin DiDonato MS, CSCS, CES

There are plenty of different ways you can torch fat.

You can change your diet to include all the BEST fat burning nutrients…

Or, you can do THIS short and intense fat burning workout!

Now, of course, you will probably see TWICE the results if you include a healthy diet…

But this type of workout has been shown to shred fat, burn MORE calories, and work both your aerobic and metabolic systems equally.

What is this fancy type of exercise?

High-Intensity Training and FAT LOSS
High intensity training, otherwise known as HIIT, has gained in popularity since it was first introduced in in 1953, in a research study conducted by Morgan and Anderson.

Since then, there have been many different programs based on this same philosophy – a short, yet intense, circuit of exercises performed with a set number of repetitions, sets, and time periods in order to maximize results.

This resulted in the birth of bootcamps, sprint training, Crossfit, and other higher intensity exercise protocols that vary certain exercises with periods of high interval work and very short rest times.

High intensity workouts have become the latest fitness trend that may maximize both the aerobic system and the metabolic systems of the body.

Result: greater fat loss, muscle strength and endurance gains, and better overall body compositions in the varying athletes or populations.

Besides taxing the different systems in your body, HIIT training spares muscle breakdown (due to the release of growth hormone and other molecules necessary for muscle repair and growth) and focuses more on fat utilization.

And, for an added benefit, it may burn calories for 48 to 72 hours AFTER the workout has been completed.

Oh, and did I mention that it’s very, very SHORT!

Due to the short rest times and high intensity work, your body may be unable to perform this type of exercise for long periods of time.

And, this alone, becomes possibly the most attractive reason to include high intensity exercise workouts into your everyday workouts.

Most of the time, HIIT training lasts a minimum of 15 minutes with a max time output of 20 minutes due to fatigue, which could lead to poor form during the performance of the exercise AND increased risk for injury.

That is why someone with knowledge of your health conditions AND knowledge of the right training protocols should design and implement a program like HIIT.

People who are overweight, have other conditions that may make this type of exercise dangerous (high blood pressure, diabetes, etc.), should avoid this type of exercise due to safety.

However, once they lose some weight and discover how their body will react to certain exercise protocols with varying intensities, then a safe and effective exercise program may be developed and implemented by a qualified professional.

Not everyone may benefit from this type of program.

Anyone looking to start this type of program should be advised to seek out the opinion of a medical professional to see if this type of program is right for them.

Is HIIT training right for you?
If you need to ask this question, then chances are you should seek out the opinion of your doctor or family physician before trying this type of program.

Although beneficial, the exercises, short rest times, and higher intensities may lead to problems with people who may be overweight, suffer from diabetes, or even have blood pressure.

But if you are free and clear, HIIT training may be an effective means for altering your body composition, burning more calories, and torching extra fat stores.

And this may lead to improvements in your health, physique, and other areas of your body.

It may even strengthen your cardiovascular, metabolic, and muscular systems in unison.

One last benefit: it may lead to ever greater fat loss – therefore providing added improvements to your health and well-being.
