How To Increase Your Metabolism With Ease

Jun 25, 2008
Exercising regularly increases your metabolism and burns lots of calories, therefore making you feel good about your body and getting into great shape. Burn more calories by gaining more muscle to increase your metabolism. It will be easier to gain muscle with exercise after you lose the fat. Achieve your objectives simultaneously if you exercise correctly. There is a way for you to obtain the best results possible with our two-step plan.

1. Burn Fat: An excellent and fast way to burn fat is to do interval training. Short, high intensity workouts burn more calories than long, slower workouts according to a study done by the American College of Sports Medicine. Interval training was created using a concept of high intensity. It combines short burst of cardio that are alternated with intervals of slower exercises. This gives you a full body workout and maximizes your calorie and fat burning abilities.

These types of exercise get the aerobic and anaerobic systems in the body burning fat. Energy that is stored in the muscles is what the anaerobic system, which is started by quick aerobic exercises. Slower workouts make use of the body's existing carbohydrates when the aerobic system uses oxygen to switch them into energy. Not only will the maximum number of calories be burned when switching systems, but muscle mass will be gained as well.

How do you go about starting interval training? Start out by walking in place, which will warm up your muscles, and then loosen your muscles with some stretches. You can start the first slow interval for two minutes once you are stretched. Try doing sit-ups, squats, or crunches; these are but a few examples of calisthenics, which are some highly recommended exercises for slow intervals. Your target heart rate should be about 100-110 beats a minute. Slow down your exercise even more if your heart rate is faster.

Once the two minutes have passed, you can begin the fast interval. This is a two-minute interval of running, jumping rope, or another high impact exercise.

To get maximum results, repeat these two minutes at fast and slow intervals for 30-60 minutes.

2. Gain More Muscle: While interval training will definitely help gain some muscle, to get the best results in the least time you can use a two-fold routine alternating between interval training and weightlifting. The most effective approach to this is by rotating your daily training between interval training and weightlifting on alternating days. This way, you will still be able to burn calories and work on different muscles while allowing your weight lifting muscles a day to rest.

On the weightlifting day, remember to do all of the exercises slowly so that you are maximizing muscle usage. The triceps and biceps, gluts, outer things, pecs, delts, etc. should all be worked by using a variety of different lifts.

You don't necessarily have to give your abs a rest day because they are more resilient than other muscles in your body. This is why sit-ups and crunches should be added to the workouts for both days.

You can get the best results because you are burning fat and building muscle at the same time using this two-step strategy. Building muscle doesn't have to wait until you have slimmed down, and burning calories doesn't have to wait until you are muscular.
