STILL TRYING TO BURN OFF HOLIDAY WEIGHT? 

BEVERLY HILLS – Try ‘interval exercise’ – which purportedly burns fat up to “nine times higher” than aerobic exercise “with effects continued for 24 hours,” according to studies reported in Metabolism Journal.

A program of “two minutes at 97% of maximum heart rate followed by a recovery period of three minutes at low intensity… is also better for conditioning the heart and improving overall circulation than lower-intensity, long-duration exercise like walking and jogging… because with interval training you transition back and forth between aerobic and anaerobic states, using fuel… As muscles require more oxygen than is available, muscle cells must rely on other reactions to continue contractions.” Then, because interval training also “helps reset your body’s temperature thermostat higher, it continues to burn more fuel even after you stop the exercise.”
