Burst Training on a Treadmill 3x More Effective than Regular Cardio

July 31, 2017

The fastest way to burn fat, in the shortest amount of time.

Have you ever spent hours in the gym, pounding away at the treadmill? Are you convinced that the built-in “calories-burned” counter is an accurate indicator of a good workout?

Well… the calorie counter is far from accurate in terms of a good workout. In fact,spending hours pounding away on a treadmill is not the best way to burn fat or get in shape. This is the number one mistake I see most people making in the gym today.

The key is to rapid fat loss is burst training, which consists of doing high intensity interval training (HIIT). Here’s how: crank up the speed on the treadmill and hop on for 10 second bursts, then rest for 20 seconds. The speed should require 90–100 percent of your effort.

For a low-impact modification, use a lower speed and change the incline to the steepest level and continue with 10-second bursts and 20-second rests (or in this case, a 10 second “climb”).

Repeat for 10–20 minutes.
