If you want to lose fat, I am sure that you want to do it as quickly as possible so that you can have the look that you desire. Here I will explain the best way to burn fat quickly and the benefits of doing so.

High Intensity Interval Training

Studies have proven that high intensity interval training (HIIT) is an extremely successful way of burning fat and getting into shape.  As the name suggests, HIIT involve high intensity intervals followed by short recovery periods.

The beauty of HIIT is that you continue to burn calories for up to 24 hours after you have finished your workout. This is because you can’t get enough oxygen into your body during the workout, meaning your body has to continue to work after, in order to regain your normal oxygen levels.  Burning calories = burning fat!

Flexibility

You can incorporate HIIT into muscular workouts or cardio vascular workouts. Personally, I have had most success burning fat when using HIIT running. I would do a 30 second sprint, followed by a 20 second rest and repeat this eight times.

No Loosing Muscle

Don’t worry though, burning fat doesn’t mean burning muscle! HIIT has been proven to burn your stored fat before it touches your muscle.

Other Benefits

Aside from burning fat efficiently, there are many other benefits to HIIT. You will have a healthier heart. Your body isn’t used to doing anaerobic exercise (exercise where you are unable to breath whilst doing it e.g. sprints). Therefore, your heart has to work harder to pump more blood through your body, this in turn helps to improve the health of your heart

You can do it anywhere. You do not need any equipment to complete HIIT. You can sprint or jump wherever you want! You will have an increase in your metabolism. HIIT can improve your body’s metabolism as it helps to produce the Human Growth Hormone, this helps to slow down the aging process. And finally, it’s a challenge. HIIT will never be easy, you can always go further. One thing is for certain, you will be worn out after!
