Fat burning cardio workout HIIT training Prozis TV
Hey, guys! Welcome back to the workout showwith me, Rob Riches, filmed for Prozis Nutrition. I’m here in Santa Monica in Southern California and we’re bringing the workout outside. I mean, just look at the weather.And the view is gorgeous. What I’m going to be doing today isincorporating interval sprints into my cardio training. Interval, or High Intensity Interval Training, is great way to really metabolise that stored body fat,
utilize it as fuel and get the body workingas efficiently as possible. Purpose of why I’m out here todayis to do 10 sprints. We’re going to start off by jogging about 100 yards, walking back, do that two times, limber up, warm up the joints and the muscles, and then for those final eight,we’re going to sprint at all our effort and then walk back, allow our heart rate to come back downto a more normal kind of recovery rate,
turn back and sprint. So, basically, all our effortfollowed by a length of recovery. Alright, let’s get to it. Two warm up jogs. Okay, so the purpose of these two runs or jogs,really is just to prepare the body for what we’re going. The same is when we get into the gym,we do a warm up, whether it’s some cardioor the actual exercise that you do, you put the body through that movement that you’re then going to start to overload and push it.
So, we’re sprinting today. I don’t want to get straight into sprinting. I want to start jog, warm up, get my heart rate up, and then progressively work into those sprints. A couple more. Okay, that’s two of my warm up runs done. Just a note on stretching. I personally like to warm up my body and my muscles
during this initial warm up phase. As far as stretching, I’ll save that for after, once I’ve done all of my sprints. Now, the main difference between interval trainingand steadypace cardio is… Let’s say you’re on a treadmill,you’re running or walking on an incline and you’re doing that for a period of timewithout much change. That’s what’s known as LISS,or low intensity steady state cardio. Anything that, basically, carries onfor the duration at that same level of exertion.
Interval training is a lot more stop and go. And the reason this is beneficialfor those looking for maximum fat loss efforts is it uses a combination of caloriescoming from our sugar stored in the muscle, so glycogen, and body fat. Plus, it can ramp up metabolism,the rate at which your body burns calories, for about eight hours after by 5%. So that’s a lot of calories burned throughout the day. That’s why I like to do my interval training herein the morning.
