If you’ve been watching Live Lean TV for a while now, you know I’m all about getting lean results faster. One technique I incorporate into 95% of my workouts unleashes my secret weapon…the Afterburn Effect.
Have you ever heard of the “Afterburn Effect“?
If you haven’t…you need to listen up! To put in simply, the afterburn effect is the cause of more calories being burned AFTER your workout (otherwise known as EPOC – you can read more about EPOC here if you like).
In fact, you can be burning more calories & losing fat faster, while working out less.
Sound too good to be true? The research doesn’t lie.
Research shows the more intense the workout, the higher the afterburn effect.
So what does this mean to you?
#1 Keep your rest periods short…yes I’m talking to you Mr. or Ms. Talk-a-lot. You know that guy or girl you keep talking to on the treadmill between sets…he/she is not interested in you, so get back to work!
Harsh I know…but it’s the truth.
#2 Increase the intensity of your exercises. Rather than jogging for 40 mins on the treadmill (forget about staying in “the fat burning zone), kick it up a notch by sprinting all out for 30 secs, then active rest (slow walk) for 60-90 secs or until your heart rate drops. Repeat 10 times.
If you do the math, you’re doing less work (from a time standpoint)… 20 mins vs 40 mins. Winner!
So if you’re looking trade in the flabby body and become a a sexy, lean, ripped/toned specimen…workouts with quick bursts of speed and energy followed by active rest periods will get you there faster.
And that’s just what you get in todays “Ignite The Afterburn Effect – HIIT Workout“.
