Short bursts of exercise are more effective at helping burn off calories.
(PRWEB) November 26, 2012
Fort Lauderdale, FL: The Projects for Natural Health Choices Inc. recommends integrating short intervals of intensive exercise no more than 25 minutes to burn off more calories. This recommendation is given after The Project for Natural Health Choices revisited a study conducted at Colorado State University and presented on October 10-13 at an exercise conference in Colorado sponsored by the American Physiological Society, the American College of Sports Medicine and the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology. The findings of the study suggest that short bursts of exercise are more effective at helping burn off calories.
In this study the researchers had subjects do workouts that were less than 25 minutes and included a few minutes of harder intensive exercise. This kind of training is called sprint-interval training.
What the scientists found was that the subjects that did the sprint-interval training continued to burn off additional calories for a full 24 hour period.
The researchers noted that on average an extra 200 calories were burned. Therefore, if a person did not increase their food intake and did the workout several times a week, they would shed an approximate ten pounds a year.
For those interested in reducing their weight with exercise, consider trying a sprint-interval training program.
