Ask ten people what type of exercise must be done to burn fat and boost metabolism, and they will probably tell the same thing to you. They will tell you that you should do 30-40 minutes of aerobic exercise at moderate 3-5 times a week on a treadmill, elliptical, climbing machine, etc., pace. They probably also tell you that more is better 4 times a week will be better than 3, and 5 times a week would be much better. People tell you this because this has been and continues to be the general recommendation to burn fat from many fitness professionals. Stay at a certain target heart rate zone and stay there for 30 minutes or less, several times a week. I’m here to tell you that there is a better way. Sure, you burn some calories while you are running towards nowhere on a treadmill, but not a complete physical transformation will achieve only with this type of exercise.
In fact, this type of exercise can be counterproductive for fat burning. These are just some reasons: of long duration and low intensity aerobic exercises use your stored body fat for energy during the sessions. Although apparently this seems good, you can actually make your body to develop more body fat reserve once he finished training to be ready during your next workout. Heavens! What’s worse, is that when this type of exercise, often as will typically suggest it, it trains your cardiovascular system to be efficient. Again, although this sounds good, in reality your heart and lungs reduce their ability to work since they are becoming more efficient to do an easy job (your aerobics workouts of long duration and low intensity), which reduces your ability to handle stress. This can cause other problems including a higher likelihood of suffering a heart attack. You’re only working within your current aerobic capacity, because you never challenging it to go beyond of what is capable do.
