Many of us have wanted to look like the statues and Madonnas that grace the world over. Dieting will help you to achieve this goal, but you need to exercise as well. In order to increase your success rate and save time you need to start a weekly workout plan. Pay attention because I’m about to share some ways that you can shed weight quickly.
The next question is this: how can you make the most of your exercise time? To help you along, let’s take a look at some tips that will make certain that the time you spend sweating is as productive as possible.
In order to lose fat in the thigh and abdomen areas you need to work the cardiovascular system. Dieting is great but you’ll soon find that, without proper exercise, there’ll still be some fat that is notoriously hard to get rid of.
In order to get rid of the fat in the mid-section and thighs you need to be doing at least an hour of cardiovascular workout a week. Don’t worry, it’s not as hard as it sounds. Just spread out the workouts to three twenty minute workouts or six ten minute workouts a week.
In order to benefit from your exercise routine you need to build up your heart rate in order to burn the calories and raise your metabolism. If you don’t have a heart rate monitor, a good way to make sure you’re working hard enough is whether or not you’re sweating.
If sweat is coming out of you even after you’ve stopped exercising, you are probably on the right track. Make sure that you also learn the proper healthy foods to eat in addition to all the workouts.
A good method for burning as many calories as possible is to implement a “split routine”. The point of split training or “interval training” is to help increase efficiency in your workouts.
Split routines are easy; you just start off going at a slow pace for a short time, then kick it into gear for a short time, then go slow again.
Here’s a good example: Let’s suppose you’re running on a treadmill. You’ll want to warm up and then jog for about four minutes at a fairly slow pace. After those four minutes are up, pick up the speed and run hard for about two minutes. Once those two minutes are up you can repeat the circuit until fifteen to twenty minutes have passed.
That’s not the only way you can perform a split routine though. Many people like to gradually increase the hard portion of the routine while shortening the rest time, making for a great fat loss session.
Some people like to go one minute hard followed by one minute soft while others use the slow portion as rest and focus primarily on the high speed portion. Some people find natural ways to devise a split routine, such as going slowly down a hill and quickly up the hill.
This can be imitated on some treadmills and stationary bikes but it’s just an example and the best routine for you is the one that you’re most likely to stick with.
