Interval and strength training combined are far better at ramping up your metabolism and burning off belly fat than steady-state aerobic exercise. During steady-state aerobic exercise the body releases glucocorticoids. These stress hormones are catabolic, meaning a breakdown of the human body, including muscle, tissue and bone.
Perfect fat-burning routine
Vahdaneh Vahid (Al Arabiya English)
Bodyweight exercises can be a warm up or the main part of your workout. If you prefer lifting weights try strength-training supersets to build muscle, or an HIIT routine to burn fat in a short time. Mix up your training days, alternating resistance training with HIIT.
Varieties of HIIT
It is always best to do what you enjoy and can stick to. If you enjoy being outside you can jog, run, sprint or skip. At the gym, you can use a rowing machine, cross-trainer or swimming pool. You can even climb the stairs in your apartment and get the lift back down as your recovery.SHOW MORE
