Burn more fat with your cardio exercise without getting bored! Its simple to do, won’t take much time, but it will be very tough to do. Here it is: run sprint intervals on grass or sand. And, if the wind is blowing in your face, that’s even better.
You will burn more fat and sculpt your body faster by running on the ground. You don’t need a machine to do cardio. Have you ever tried doing 20 minutes of running intervals on grass or sand? You should. If you get through one week (3 sessions) of these cardio intervals, you will see the results.
When you have a choice, run sprints outside on grass, sand, etc. (not pavement, asphalt or other hard surface). Why? Because its tougher—you have to supply all the momentum and force with no help from machines. This will cause you to burn more calories during and after your workout.
Research says that you will burn 10% more calories by running on the ground. I believe its probably more when you figure in wind resistance and natural land inclines.
Get the most fat-burn and calorie-burn from your workouts—do your cardio workouts outside. Running outside is definitely my first choice and sprint intervals (20 minutes in some form) is the cardio workout I do the most. It works—much better than cardio on machines.
You can also do sprint intervals with shuttle runs. Shuttle runs are effective fat burners because of speed and sudden changes in direction. This adds more intensity to an otherwise intense form of exercise. Shuttles will improve your dynamic balance, power and coordination.
Sprint intervals will really burn the fat on your butt, hips, thighs, hamstrings and lower legs. Fat will also be burned on your upper body. You don’t have to be fast, just run as fast as you can during the intervals.
Ditch the machines and do tougher, more effective cardio on the ground. The body fat will melt off!
