Interval training is a great way to burn lots of calories in less. Interval training involves varying the level of intensity during the course of your work out. Studies have shown that mixing up the intensity of your workout can increase your calorie burn for the same length workout by as much as 30%!
Try these fun interval combinations:
30 second sprint + 15 second jog
20 jumping jacks + 10 lunges
10 sets of box jumps + 15 bicep curls
The great thing about interval training is that you will burn a lot of calories in a short amount of time so you won’t have to spend hours working out. Also, it’ll help to boost your metabolism so your body is burning more fat even at rest.
Full Body Weight Training
Of coursedoing crunches will help to develop those ab muscles but you don’t want to just stop there. Incorporating a full body strength training routine will not only give you a lean, toned appearance overall but will also help to boost your metabolism so you can more effectively burn belly fat.
The more muscle you have the higher your metabolic rate and the faster you’ll be able to burn off that fat. So if you aren’t doing so already be sure to incorporate a full body strength circuit 2-3 times each week that hits the major muscle groups.
