Interval Training Workout to Lose Belly Fat

If a trainer tells you that the best way to burn fat is to do an hour of cardio every day, they are lying to you or they are just being silly. We know that cardio is not for burning fat. A better method is interval training. We don’t know what interval length works best. However, we do know that intervals work better than long-distance cardio. Personally, I don’t care which one works better. All I know is that I don’t want to get up early every morning and go for a run.

I used to do this for months and all I had to show for it was a bad knee. Running is especially dangerous for overweight people. This is because when you jog on the pavement, you are putting a lot of pressure on your knees. So what do you do if you hate or just can’t run? You can ride a bike or row, but even those are boring. Why not try interval training? Interval training is where you alternate between periods of high intensity training and low intensity training.

If your goal is solely fat loss, do intervals that are just 20-30 seconds long followed by 10-15 seconds of rest or active recovery between each exercise. You can do this for as long as you want, but I doubt you’ll survive more than 20 minutes.

Make sure you do as much as possible during your intervals, or else it won’t work well. Also, if you stay too long, it won’t work. The idea is to keep your heart rate elevated for as long as possible. This is what will help you increase your metabolic rate and burn fat.
