Lose Weight Quick

Secret Trick to Boost Your Metabolism After Workouts

If you think all exercise is the same and to successfully lose weight quick it is just a matter of how long and how often you exercise, then I have GREAT NEWS for you.

Did you know there is a way to spend LESS time exercising and get a BETTER workout?

The trick to losing weight quick is interval training. Simply applying interval training to your routine is an easy and fast way to burn more calories without adding time to your workout - in fact it will decrease your workout time. And the best part is you can use this concept for both weightlifting and cardio exercise.

Losing Weight Quick - The Cardio Method

You don't have to spend hours in the gym to burn the calories off. In fact, with interval cardio training, you can spend as little as 30 minutes running, stepping or whatever you do, and still jolt your metabolism into the fat burning stage for hours after you have finished your routine. Instead of doing 45-60 minutes or more of cardio going at a steady pace, you want to mix it up with high intensity spurts followed by a lower intensity period.

For example, if you run, instead of going at your typical pace, sprint for a set time or distance, then jog or walk for the same amount of time. Follow that up with another series of the sprint then lower intensity exercise. For an added challenge, do the high intensity activity uphill. You want to repeat this for 20 minutes.

Losing Weight Quick - The Weightlifting Method

You can apply the interval training concept to weight lifting. Instead of doing a set, then resting, then another then resting, etc. you do several different exercises one after the other without resting. Be aware of the amount of weight you use. You want to be challenged and winded when you are done, but you want to be able to finish so if you use weights that are too heavy, you won't be able to complete the combo.

For example, choose a few exercises and alternate muscles worked such as squats, dumpbell shoulder presses, lunges, and barbell bench press. Notice the primarily leg ones are not one after the other in this example. Do each one for 12-15 repetitions. Move from one to the next without a rest break until you have finished the last exercise. Take a couple of minutes or so to rest, then repeat the series 3 or 4 times.

In fact a strategic weightlifting routine focusing on the larger muscle groups will not only boost your metabolism (which = burning more calories = losing fat), but can get you out of the gym in less than an hour. The trick is to combine those exercises such as squats, presses and deadlifts to name a few, which work larger muscles and/or multiple muscles at one time. Doing so will really ramp up your metabolism to allow you to lose weight quick and get the toned body you desire.
