All too often, people tell me they exercise but still can’t burn the fat. Others say they used to exercise, but it took too much time for what little results they got. Both groups were “mythified” (aka sold a false bill of goods) that doing moderate and continuous exercise is the best method for burning fat.
Times and science are changing that mindset.
Regardless of myths that continue to circulate, there’s no question that a successful and efficient approach is needed now more than ever. People are short on time. And sadly, many of them are also long on excess body fat.
Science does in fact exist that moderate and continuous forms of exercise such as jogging, riding a stationary bike, or elliptical training burn fat. However, there’s an equally big pile of research showing it doesn’t.
The real question is: Do you want to burn fat, increase stamina, and build muscle tone in a way that is fast and effective?
Then consider the gritty facts of what high intensity interval training (HIIT) can do.
- It’s more effective at maximizing oxygen uptake than aerobic exercise.
- It pushes the limits of anaerobic metabolism (unlike aerobic exercise)
- It mimics real life activities (visualize kids at play or most sports).
- It’s vastly more efficient than aerobic forms of exercise
Efficient is an understatement. Consider that numerous studies compare people doing 60 minutes of aerobic exercise while a second group does short bursts of HIIT that add up to perhaps 4 minutes. Notably, the results in the HIIT group prevail, yet their time commitment is less than 90 percent of the ineffective method of exercise.
Do the math. Hands down, HIIT prevails. Do you really want to burn fat? Are you willing to shake off the old paradigm and take hold of the new science? Your future cut and trimmed body will thank you!
