Have you spent hours on the treadmill just to glance down and notice, “103 calories burned!”? Over the years, treadmills have lost their credibility and currently is not the #1 ideal way to burn fat. However, Treadmills can be an ideal fat buster if used appropriately. If you’re trying to burn fat, tone your legs and lift your glutes, doing an interval treadmill workout may be key. Interval workouts are great for building strength, burning fat, toning and balance. It’s great for those trying to lose body fat in a shorter period of time, great for muscle stabilization and speedy progression. Interval workouts are preferred cardio for ectomorph Skinny Fat body types. The Key is to get your heart rate pumping 80-90% of your maximum heart rate (MHR) for 30-60 min., decrease to 50-60% MHR for 10 sec, then back up to your MHR. You may also gradually decrease/ increase your MHR every min ( 90-60% / 60-90%) for 10 min then lower to baseline levels for cool down. See below for a B.F.M Tip of the day
