3 Exercise tips you can really use.

Standard


  1. If you’re pressed for time, try exercising at a higher intensity. People who exercise at higher intensities experience a post workout boost in calorie burn that averages 10% of their total exercise time. For example, if you normally burn 300-400 calories on your hour long 4 mile walk, you can burn 30-40 extra calories in half the time if you’ve added speed intervals
  2. Need a caffeine boost? skip the coffee and reach for green tea! Yes, green tea has much acclaimed anti-oxidant, anti-aging and anti-carcinogenic effects but did you know it may help you burn more calories? Some research has shown that green tea consumption can boost metabolism between 4 and 10% . That can add up to major weight-loss!
  3. Not sure which work-out to do today? Well, consider that increasing your muscle mass can increase your calorie burn overall. That means adding 3 pounds of muscle can boost your calorie burn 6-8% which = 100 extra calories a day! Hitting the treadmill/elliptical/bike won’t add muscle mass but performing resistance training will. Hit those weights!
