Exercising can consume a lot more calories if you take these essential aspects into account
Are you already training cardio regularly, but your calorie consumption is no longer increasing properly? We'll tell you the tricks of professional footballers, with which you can easily turn your workout into a real fat killer.
Pratik Patel works as Director of Performance Nutrition and Team Assistant Strength and Condidtion Coach at the New York Giants, one of the best football teams in the world. He is responsible for the strength, endurance and nutrition of the top athletes and ensures that they can always achieve top performance. If someone on the team has to lose calories, they know what to do.
Path of least resistance
Do as he does and use exercises with little resistance. This technique, also called low intensity, mainly burns fat and no carbohydrates. Fat is known to have many more calories.
But the time between the training sessions is really important, because once breathing and heartbeat have calmed down, there is a (harmless) oxygen deficit that boosts metabolism and burns calories on the side.
Therefore, pay attention to your everyday life: use the stairs instead of the elevator, go on foot instead of driving and stand in public transport instead of sitting down - so you burn extra calories after a reduced-intensity workout.
The right time of day
The key to your success is not only how you train, but also when you do it. You burn most of your fat if you do your cardio workout in the morning before breakfast. The body is still at the stage of nighttime fasting. The glycogen is used up during training and fat burning can begin.
You should make your training as varied as possible. The body quickly gets used to constant, regularly recurring loads and adapts to them. Patel therefore recommends changing the type and equipment of training again and again. You should also deliberately incorporate high-intensity interval training into your training plan. This will challenge your body and boost your metabolism.
Get rid of fat
It may sound contradictory at first, but breaking down fat promotes fat burning. As is well known, fat is not burned by fat, but by muscles. The good news is that the more fat you have converted into muscle, the faster fat burning will progress.
Pulse on the stop
The higher your pulse, the more calories you burn. So, when climbing stairs or cycling, bring your heart rate as close as possible to your personal maximum in order to burn a maximum of calories! (Fs)
