Intervals, 20 Minutes, Rev Up Metabolism

Exercise often and maximize your workout. Exercise revs up your metabolism and helps you achieve quicker weight-loss results. The level of commitment is entirely up to you, but do what you can, ideally working in some exercise every day. The most efficient way of exercising is to do intervals in which you alternate bursts of fast, intense activity with periods of slower and less-intense recovery. Doing interval walking outdoors or on a treadmill or elliptical, for example, for at least 20 minutes a day can help you shift your metabolism into high gear so that you can burn more calories and fat in less time. The key is to create a realistic exercise plan that you’ll be able to stick with. Alternating interval exercise with core-strengthening exercises on different days is best.

I do interval training.  I used to do steady state cardio, and then one day switched up one minute to a higher level.  So bike was at level 3, I switched to level 4 for a minute….came back down for another minute, up to 5 the next…and so on.  Sweated much more, and now I’m hooked!  Once you have given it a try, google “interval training” or “HIIT” and start a program!
