I finally understand why it is so hard to lose weight, at my age.
Here is a good article by Jenni and Nathan Oakes of Burst Club
They explain why HIIT(High Intensity Interval Training) is so effective for losing weight, fat, and toning up, and it even can assist with increases in muscle size and definition.
Research shows that when you do traditional cardio or aerobic exercise (LILD), hormones are released that signal the body to burn fat for fuel. Have you ever been told to get into your “Fat Burning Zone?" This target zone is so widely recommended that even fitness equipment like treadmills and elliptical machines are labeled accordingly. Although being in your fat burning zone for 30-45 minutes may sound like a great thing, science has proven that, under the proper circumstances, our bodies actually have the ability to burn fat for hours following exercise! Let’s take a step back from traditional thinking about our “fat burning zone” and look at the overall picture that has been painted for us through the extensive research of exercise physiologists.
So if you desire to stop storing fat and become a lean, mean, fat-burning machine, consider the research that proves adding burst training into your routine will re-program your body to burn fat throughout the day!
