6 Steps to Maximize Your Fat Loss Intervals
Follow these 6 simple guidelines to ensure your interval workouts burn fat more effectively.
4/ Never Rush Recovery
You get the biggest spike in calories burned when your body is forced to transition from a state of rest to a state of full-on activity, Campbell says. "Even if you feel like you can go all out again after just 30 seconds, you're still better off waiting the extra minute and then pushing yourself even harder."
5/ Go Gradually Outdoors
"When running outside, start with 50 percent of your top speed on your first interval. Go up to 60 or 70 percent on the next and so on." Push your body as hard as you can as you get into the groove of the workout, says Campbell.
6/ Focus on Intensity
"You should never feel duty-bound to do two intervals today, three the next time you work out, and four the time after that. The overall intensity of the intervals you complete is more important than how many you do in any given workout."
