Exercise intensity counts!

The term intensity has several meanings depending on the type of exercise you do, but basically it describes how hard you work. With aerobic exercise, intensity can be measured by heart rate. For optimal fat burning you should exercise at a level hard enough to raise your heart rate to 70-85 % of your max….220-age. In short, you burn more total fat calories at higher intensities!

This is why interval training is so effective. By raising then lowering your heart you are forcing your body to take longer to recover.  Too many times people come to the gym and do the same routine your body is used to. We must force an adaptation.

So the next time you’re on the treadmill, try mixing it up. Go fast, then walk,  go fast again, go slow, walk on an incline. If this is new your body will be forced to adapt. Even better, mix in strength training with your cardio. Need help with what types of intervals to try? Call me or see me in the gym. Schedule a free fitness consultation and postural evaluation!

Yours in health!
