Effective Weight Loss Tips For The Busy Woman
A modern woman has numerous commitments to attend to. As such, lack of time has often been cited as the primary reason (or excuse?) for missing the workout.
Below are 2 time savers tips which you can consider to help you attain your weight loss goals.
Firstly, interval training – short burst of high cardio workouts. The essence of this program is about variation in the intensities on the cardio workout between medium and high intensity.
For example, you can start off with a 90seconds jog and sprint for the next 60seconds. Then, alternate between these two routines for 15-25minutues. This definitely burns more calories than a pure 25minutes jog at a sustained pace.
Alternatively, if you have access to a 400m track, you can consider jogging for the 1st 200m and then sprint for the next 200m. After which, you would need to repeat the cycle for 6-8rounds.
Secondly, add in resistance training into the workout. This is because strength training helps to add lean muscle mass this can help to increase the body metabolism and hence burns more calories even at rest.
