In­clude car­dio and weights

New Zealand Fitness - - EXERCISES -

The longer our car­dio ses­sions, the more cor­ti­sol we release and the more mus­cle tis­sue our body can­ni­bal­izes for en­ergy. By keep­ing car­dio short and in­tense – high in­ten­sity in­ter­val-style pro­to­cols have been proven to work best – and weights hard and heavy – rel­a­tive to in­di­vid­ual strength lev­els and re­cu­per­a­tive abil­i­ties – the more fat we are likely to burn long-term. Be­cause re­sis­tance train­ing builds mus­cle and fat calo­ries are used to sus­tain mus­cle tis­sue, de­vel­op­ing more mus­cle is an ex­pe­di­ent way to tar­get stub­born body fat.
