High Intensity Training

If you are looking for greater weight loss and burning more calories then I highly recommend that you invest some of your time into doing some high intensity training.

High Intensity training consists of doing weights or cardio in an effort zone of 80-100% of maximal effort followed by short rests. If you want to increase the intensity of your cardio workout then try a treadmill where you raise the incline to a higher incline than you are used to and do intervals of 30 seconds as fast as you can followed by a 30 second rest and repeat for 20 minutes.

If you want to raise the intensity of your weight training workout then try doing something that we call a superset. A superset is when you choose two exercises to do, and they can be for the same or opposing muscle groups, and you do them for x number of reps back to back with no rest.

An example would be if you do a squat for ten repetitions followed by ten repetitions of lunges. This will significantly raise your intensity!
