Everything You Need to Know About Interval Training for Fat Loss in Brussels

April 4, 2011

People always ask me what the best form of interval training is and basically, when it comes to fat loss, it just doesn’t matter. As long at you are doing some form of interval training and you’re doing it consistently, then that’s what matters most.

So, you may have heard people talk of the Tabata training where you go really hard for 20 seconds and then follow that with 10 seconds of easy recovery and repeat that cycle for 8 times.

That’s fine, but what I want to convey is that there is nothing magical about Tabata when comparing it to say 30 seconds hard, and 60 seconds easy.

Personally, I prefer to follow the latter training outline because it’s a lot easier to do with machines. We need to understand that at the end of the day, it’s going to give you the same results.

Some people may want to finish their interval training portion of the workout faster, and in that case, you may want to follow the Tabata method. If you’re doing 20 and 10 for 8 cycles, then that’s only 4 minutes! A quick yet super effective workout.

You may have also heard about the research on interval training showing 3-6 minutes of exercise per week, is as good as training much longer. What these people did, however, is sprint on a bike for 30 seconds, and then they rested up to 4 minutes.

Sounds a lot shorter than it is, but the bottom line is, you need to work really hard for short periods of time. This will allow you to gain the benefits of much longer cardio sessions.
