Leaner and Toner Body
When it comes getting a leaner and toner body, many people often fall into the trap of starving themselves or doing crazy amount of exercises without considering the holistic approach of attaining such body. For long-term success, achieving and maintaining a leaner and toner body I suggest using the 5 easy strategies in this article.
Strategy #1 – Perform High Intensity Interval Training
A great form of exercise called High Intensity Interval Training that will help tone up the abdominal areas, thighs and boost weight loss. It is essentially short periods of about 20 to 30 seconds maximum sprints interspersed by active recovery that is low enough in intensity to allow high quality maximum sprints to be performed again. The best part is it may burn 9 times more fat than the long slow cardio. In fact, HIIT has been found to be far more superior in terms of boosting metabolism and losing fat than long slow cardio such as walking or jogging at slow steady pace.
Strategy #2 – Lift Weights
When it comes lifting weights, many people associate with it bulky muscles. The truth is lifting weights will not give you bulky muscles if you are on the right programme. Instead, it can help boost toning and weight loss because it helps build lean muscle that will show off the definition of your muscles and at the same time boost your metabolism to speed up your fat-burning capacity.
Strategy #3 – Increase Eating Frequency
If you are eating 2 or 3 meals a day and skipping your breakfast on most morning, it is time to sort out your nutrition. It is paramount that you eat your breakfast to tune up your metabolism first thing in the morning or else your body will be in first gear for most part of the day and not burning fat efficiently. It is also important that you eat 5 to 6 small meals a day to keep your metabolism running at high gear. The last thing you want to do is your metabolism to plummet because you missed your breakfast or you missed a meal.
Strategy #4 – Cut Out Processed Food
Cutting out the processed food that you find in cartoon boxes and even high sugary pastries is one of the fastest way to eat healthy and lose some weight. In most cases, processes food contained too much sugar and trans fat that will make toning up and losing weight very hard. Also, commercial packaged food found in supermarket even with low fat or zero labels have high level of unhealthy sugar. Go for all-natural food such as lean meat, whole fruits and vegetables.
Strategy #5 – Ensure Enough Water Intake
Water intake should be optimal in order for the body to burn fat properly. Ensure that you drink at least 2 litres of water a day or drink up when your urine turns yellow.
