Cardio intervals (which are short sprints in between slower recovery periods) are better at helping you lose weight than just steady-state cardio.
I am sure you are asking why…so let me tell you!!!
Cardio intervals force your muscles to work harder without adequate oxygen, (this is called anaerobic conditioning).
This helps your muscles burn more fuel, perform better, and grow in the long run and can even cause certain gene changes in your body that end up speeding up your metabolism.
Keep in mind that since bigger muscles=more fat burning……. It is important to incorporate interval training into a few cardio workouts each week.
Sharing some info I learned in class!
Even though I have gone through a weight loss process, and am still on a weight loss journey, it is amazing to learn why certain workouts/exercises are so important! The 1st best thing I have is the personal/physical experience, and now I am gaining the actual book-knowledge! I love it! I found my passion J
