Interval Cardio Training - Super Charge Your Weight Loss

Updated on June 26, 2011

Is this you? You really need to lose weight, so you're considering jumping on a treadmill or elliptical machine at the fitness center. Perhaps you are thinking the more natural method while enjoying a little fresh air by going outside for a jog or a bike ride. That was how most folks went about their quest to decrease fat.

What they might not realize is there is a more efficient option to accomplish your cardio training which is more effective and takes much less time to complete. The modern secret weapon of several who are attempting to decrease weight currently is interval cardio training.

Maybe this sounds too good to be true, but hang on a minute and let us review how and why interval cardio training really does work. You will discover this is a good as gold method to finally melt off that excess fat.

The notion behind interval cardio training is you perform short but high intensity bursts of cardio training, rest, and then do it again. Although you are allowed rest time following every set, you don't return to your sedentary heart rate. You just want to get your breathe back before going all out another time.

You replicate this based on either a set time or a distance. When you first start doing interval cardio training, you may find you need to allow your rest period to be slightly longer, but as time goes on you will become more accustomed to it and require less rest time.

Your body is pushed to go beyond a customary steady state and thus you are working harder. Since you are making your body work harder, you burn additional calories by remaining in the fat burning state longer than if you only did a steady cardio exercise stride for 30-60 minutes. Normally for steady state cardiovascular exercise, you stay in the fat burning state for about a few hours after you conclude your session.

With interval cardio training, you could stay in the fat burning state for 24, or more, hours afterwards. Therefore that equates up to a complete day or more that you will reap the benefits of your cardio training. The greatest part is your interval cardio training workouts merely takes 30 minutes or so, with your warm-up and cool down.

Interval cardio training puts your body in the fat burning zone much longer without having to spend hours in the gym. You'll know it works once you test it out and find out for yourself how much interval cardio training makes you work. You'll feel challenged all through your workout and will walk out of the fitness center knowing you had a terrific session.

What are you waiting for? Find out how to begin an interval cardio training program now. This works for everyone, whether you are a beginner or a regular at the gym. And the best part is the workout adapts to you so you will see success.

Put your body in the fat burning state now and get the information you need to begin your weight loss.

      I love HIIT training. I do a lot of Cathe Friedrich DVDs, which are often based on HIIT or cardio interval training. My fitness level has definitely improved since I started HIIT and it blasts the calories and body fat too!
