Weightloss: The Top 3 Workouts
Sometimes it may feel as though you’re working out like a machine, yet when you step on that scale, the numbers just don't seem to change. With plenty of online material on how to lose weight, it’s easy to get confused.
At Sporter, we’ve asked our industry-experts to come up with the three simple and proven workouts to help you lose weight:
Sprinting is one of the most metabolically challenging workouts, which is perfect for boosting your metabolism for hours after the workout to help shed that stubborn fat. Sprinting for 20-30 seconds for around 3-4 rounds, with a rest period of 60 seconds fires up the fat-burning process within the body.
Sprint training at high-intensity levels burns your body fat for up to 12 hours after you stop working out—talk about the gift that keeps on giving!
Lifting heavy weights is not usually associated with weight loss, but it should be. The effects that heavy lifting have on the body results in fat burn even after the exercise with a process called Excess Post-exercise Oxygen Consumption (EPOC).
High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT)
If you ever find yourself pushed for time due to a busy lifestyle (we’ve all been there), your workout regimen should never suffer from your lack of time. We’re here to welcome you to your new best friend, and his name is HIIT.
Short bursts of high-intensity exercises are just what the doctor ordered. You’ll be training your body to use its own fat reserves for energy so it will quickly adapt to burning fat (even after you’ve finished training).
A few short rounds of burpees and kettlebell swings, followed by suitable rest intervals will soon help you lose weight if done correctly and consistently. It's easy to see why this is one of the best methods for weight loss.
