Day 27: Shake Day

FINISH STRONG- Pounds Not Coming Off? – Try Intervals

Day 27

Want to lose weight faster? Try this amped up form of cardiovascular exercise—intervals. Intervals are simply when you exercise at a higher intensity during segments of your regular workout.  When I was training for the Naples Half Marathon I used Hal Higdon’s Training Program.  He has a lot of value to offer for runners trying to accomplish various distances.  Check him out.

Here’s one way to do it:

If you do a moderate workout, like walking for 30 minutes at a three-mile an hour pace, you could walk the first five minutes at three-miles an hour. Then, during the second five minutes increase your pace. Then, decrease your walking to a three-mile an hour pace for the next five minutes and so on.

A recent study at the University of Guelph in Ontario demonstrated this. Female cyclists who completed a high-intensity interval routine burned 36 percent more fat when they finished exercising, compared to the amount of fat they burned before exercising.

This is also a great article on WebMD High Intensity Workouts To Burn Calories that gives a variety of interval workouts you may want to try.  Let me know what is working for you.  I’d love to hear!  Have a great day!  April
