How to burn fat running


How to burn fat better and faster with interval training, a recent study has been made with HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) the results were amazing and showed that you can burn up to 9 times more fat with HIIT.

What is High Intensity Interval Training?

HIIT is a method of training  which we change the level of exercise regularly, we can achieve these changes in a number of different ways;

  • Change surface
  • Increasing speed
  • Adding weight
  • Increasing gradient  level – uphill / downhill
  • Resistance running; water or wind

All these states have an effect on our fitness state with balance, breathe and stamina. When we change these regularly at different intensity for a different amount of time this is know as interval training.

For example If  you were running on a treadmill for 20 minutes  changing gradient  level every minute increasing and decreasing  this will put your body in different states making it more adaptable for the exercise. The adoptions will effectively burn more fat, this is first achieved through thinking because your brain not allowed to rest and stay at the exercise level for a long time it can’t predict the energy levels it requires for the exercise therefor it allows for more calories to be dispatched in order for the energy to be maintained. Once the calories are dispatched they’re burnt with the muscles hard work.

Normally people use MHR fat burning zone, this a training zone is often set to low and its idea is to burn fat on one level for a  longer period of time. Studies with fitness show that training between 65%-75% of your MHR will target the fat storage cells to be used as energy, this is correct but you need to train for much longer periods of time and has a low success rate.

High Intensity Interval Training does exactly what it says, it hits fat fast. No need for diet pills it’s time to HIIT the road.
