Image via WikipediaAre you looking to lose body fat? Are you envious of those people who look good in anything and you think it will never be you again? Do not fret! There are types of weight loss exercise programs out there that have been proven to work. It is a program called interval training. It is not just another type of calorie counting program or just plain cardio! It is an all over body workout that is the "key" to successful weight loss.
Interval training is very simply a workout that puts high intensity sessions followed by lower intensity sessions. This works by tricking the body. It confuses it into burning fat at high levels even during the lower intensity because it is used to the high intensity. It seems a bit confusing, but it has been proven in research to work.
A good program out there that follows this type of training is "the truth about six pack abs"! It follows this type sof training for people who are trying to lose stomach fat. The program goes from top of the body workouts, to core workouts, and then finally to the lower body workouts and then starts all over again.
Interval training is both efficient and effective. It is the single best type of workout for increasing metabolism. It not only burns the fat, but it helps you achieve that all over lean sculpted look. Although there are no set rules on how long you should stay on a certain intensity,but the longer you stick to the more intense, the better your results and endurance.
Never sacrifice your rest periods in between intervals. This is just as important as the workout itself. It allows the body to reboot its energy. It is a long stretch away from your regular "cardio" training program. The more intense training allows for your body to respond better to exercise.
The best thing to do, when starting, is to star out slow. You do not want to start out at a very high intensity to begin with, or you can become very sore and possibly injure yourself. You want to build up to the higher intensity programs. It will give you the same results even if you start off slow.
This is really a great way to lose weight and tone your body. You can achieve that wonderful look you have always wanted. It will not happen overnight so the thing to remember is to be patient and stick with it.
