A must read for those who want to loose weight without going to a gym The secret to stay fit and healthy is an intense exercise, known as high-intensity interval training.
Scientists at Birmingham and Nottingham universities say, such a session once a week is far more effective at -burning fat than the daily workouts.
How it works?
HIT triggers the release of fat-burning hormones helping to shift those unwanted love handles. It also moves glucose from the blood into muscle tissue where it is burned as energy rather than converted to fat.
And vigorous bursts of physical activity also have the effect of killing your appetite, whereas longer workouts can leave you wanting to eat more.
It means people keen to lose weight would be less likely to be tempted to snack on unhealthy treats if they ditched the gym and went for a short brisk walk. HIT sessions can include running, riding a bike or walking.
Professor James Timmons, leading the research at Birmingham, said, HIT is really good at improving glucose uptake into the muscles in a very, very short time.
