Want to know how to increase your ability to turn yourself into a more fat-efficient burning machine? Then watch today’s brief video.
Maggie, one of the regular visitors to the gym, kindly volunteered to demonstrate a 3 exercise combo that has the ability to change the way you look and feel.
A key element here is to perform a group of exercises that will raise your metabolic rate (in other words…the rate in which you burn calories).
Here’s good news and bad news.
Bad news is….for most people, you have to exercise for at least 2 hours before you start to burn any fat. Now, most of us don’t have the time or energy to exercise for 2 hours, and neither should you.
But here’s the good news….. If you perform a combination of exercises that take your heart rate into your fat-burning zone and keep it there for at least 15 minutes, you’ll raise your metabolic rate. And it will stay raised for 2 to 15 hours after you’ve left the gym – that’s when you burn fat.
Here’s how you calculate your ideal target heart rate for burning fat:
1. Minus your age from 220
2. Then calculate 70% of that figure – that is your target heart rate
3. Here’s an example for a 40 year old female: 220 – 40 = 180. 70% of 180 is 126
Obviously, exercise alone wont give you your desired look. Other lifestyle factors, such as optimum nutrition, sleep and mindset are just, if not, more important.
