Keto Diet Facts & Tips

What type of exercise will burn fat?

Short-duration, high-intensity exercise with a good amount of rest may be very therapeutic for the heart and effective for weight loss.

A few types of HIIT exercises:

  • Spin bike

  • Slamball

  • Plyometrics like jump training

  • Sprinting (if you have good joints)

High-intensity interval training can help increase something called VO2 max, which is the amount of oxygen that feeds the muscles. It can also help increase growth hormone and testosterone.

With HIIT, you want high-intensity, short duration and a good amount of recovery. You want to create short-term stress and improve recovery and the parasympathetic nervous system.

A suggestion: doing a 20 second or less intense workout and then rest for about 2 to 4 minutes. Then repeat for about 3 to 7 sets. Add this workout to what you’re already doing. You could see some really amazing changes, not just with your heart, but with your whole body.

Tips on HIIT

  • You’re working out 20 to 40 minutes

  • Fat-burning effects occur 24 to 48 hours after the workout, during sleep
