I found HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) when I was just looking for a way to workout for less time while improving my results. What I discovered was exercising for fat loss wasn’t about how much I can stand but how little I needed to activate the body’s natural fat release response.
In other words, its not about bragging about how many miles you ran, or hours of kick boxing you did as if its a badge of honor… If my granny can get goddess-like glutes doing pushups, squats and dead lifts for 12-15 minutes then you should listen to HER and not the crazy man on the DVD or trainer! No matter how buff they may be…
Apparently to elicit a fat frying response to exercise the key is to do workouts that are: Aggressive, Rapid and DEEP!
Below are two videos by Dr. Doug McGuff (author of Body By Science) that express this idea very clearly using a few scientific terms>>
Here is the download link for the bootleg PDF of Dr. Duffs Book, Body By Science, here! Simply right click on it and “save target” or “save file as”.
Chapters 3-9 are the meat of what you need to get started but of course if you haven’t heard anything of this type of training or are just curious, read from the top!
