Want to amp up your exercise routine for weight loss?
The American College of Sports Medicine reports that you can elevate your metabolism for up to 24 hours post-exercise by adding intervals to your workouts!
Intervals are when you add intense brief period of exercise to your regular exercise routine.
If you enjoy walking, try adding bursts of jogging for 1 minute for every 5 minutes of walking. As your fitness levels improve, you can increase the intervals.
The intensity effectively resets your metabolism to a slightly higher rate during your workout routine and it takes hours for it to slow down again. That equals additional calorie burning long after you have finished your workout.
And who doesn’t want to make their workouts more effective, in less time?
