Surprisingly, very few people in the exercise world acknowledge the proven success of this type of training. Most people figure the more time you spend in the gym the more cut up you will be--but that doesn't have to be the case. You don't have to spend 3 hours in the gym to have an appealing body--in fact you have a better chance of achieving a perfect figure if you spend LESS time in the gym. Here's how it works:
The Afterburn Effect:
In short, the afterburn effect is calorie burn AFTER exercise. The more intense the exercise, the greater the afterburn effect. For example, sprinting as fast as you can for 30 seconds for 5 rounds will have a much larger afterburn effect compared to jogging for 30 minutes.
Most people focus on calories burned DURING a workout, but what really matters is the calories you burn AFTER a workout. Think about it--working out for an hour a day is great, but what really matters is how your body reacts for the remaining 23 hours. Its scientifically proven that if you want to lose body fat and get ripped, it takes intermittent bursts of high-intensity activity followed by rest periods.
