3 exercises that burn fat

Running is at the top of the most popular sports thanks to its great fat-burning capacity and its accessibility. Because to go running, the only tools you need are a good pair of walking shoes and a suitable bra. But is it enough? Here are 3 workout routes that burn calories much faster!

For a 68 kg woman, a 4 km run for 30 minutes, the equivalent of 1.3 km / 10 minutes, will burn 143 calories, the equivalent of 36 calories per km.

It is good to diversify the exercises and not just run for 4 or 5 km. Many exercises are effective in burning fat, but are little practiced. Most of the time, you need the latest equipment and a subscription to a gym club. Except that these exercises do not require anything and are easily accommodated with running. They combine easily and are practiced in your house or outside, without clutter!

A top-down workout

A TABATA type workout is not enough.  TABATA (a HIIT interval training method) is a great way to increase your heart rate soaring, but performing a 20-second exercise, then recovering for 10 seconds, and doing this 8 times in a row, is not enough. It takes a longer time to work your whole body and sculpt it, effectively burning fat. The metabolism keeps a good heart rate for hours after the workout.

The 60/45/20 method

  • 60 seconds of burpees
  • 10 second break
  • 45 lunges by tilting the arms
  • 10 second break
