How do you maximize weight loss in 25 min AM workouts
How do you maximize weight loss in 25 min AM workouts
weight loss limited time
11/15/12 2:07 PM
I wake up early and go to the gym 4 times a week for about 25 minutes during the week.
I have more time on the weekend for workouts..

What is the best weight loss workout routine for that limited time at the gym?

Thanks!

I'm sure someone here will give advice on specific workouts / exercises but it has to be HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training). Google it. You'll burn a ton of calories, torch fat and your body will also be working overtime post-workout!

However, any of the Beachbody DVD programmes are a fraction of the price compared to a yearly gym membership! You won't get bored and you'll be super super motivated! I'd recommend home fitness rather than a gym, however each to their own!

Hello Bita,

Merkooz is absolutely correct on the High-Intensity Training! I have been training clients for years with this training and it works. This is because High-Intensity training is much different than running on the treadmill or just lifting a few weights. Also, the results are different and here's why....It's not about how many calories that you burn during the workout that's important....It's about how many calories you burn throughout the day. When performing High-Intensity training, your heart rate is between Zone 2 ( 80%-85%) and Zone 3 ( 86%-90%) of your Heart Rate Max. These are your cardio-respiratory training zones... It requires a lot of Oxygen for this training...due to the high O2 levels required for your workout, your body will burn more calories post workout than during your workout, because it requires more oxygen to replenish energy levels. This requires the use of calories, which speeds up your metabolism, thus increasing weight loss.

Hope this helps you!
