What are the ten tipsto super-charging my metabolism?
...and that would be the combination of cardio and strength training. Inthis tip, its author would like to make it a point that cardiotraining should always be preceded by strength/resistance trainingworkout. This is because the strength training needs that extraenergy and endurance required by heavy weight lifting, while on theother hand, blood needs to be pumped back into those muscles (bycardio) after they have been broken down by the former.
Nextoff, we've got exercising in the morning. This tip is backed up bythe statistic according to which 75% of the people who work out inthe morning, also stayed with their fitness and health programmes.This is in stark contrast with the figure representing the people whoworked out in the evening; and that would be: 25%. Not only doesmorning exercise prove a more efficient way of dealing with doing it, italso provides that extra kick most of us expect from that steamingmug of morning brew.
Thirdly:exercising at home is another great idea. A greater amount of peoplehave lost the weight they were looking to lose at home than at thegym. This is because it is increasingly hard to come up with reasonsof "not having the time" or "being too busy at themoment" when the gym is at home.
Fourthin line: exercising outdoor is a great way of bringing the elementsinto play. Other than that, an occasional change of scenery alsoprevents the exercise routines from becoming boring. However, if thecase is that a person is working out indoors, a steady change ofmachines and exercise routines should do the trick, too.
Nextly,treadmills are better than stationary bikes. This is because weightbearing machines tend to expand more energy than when a person issitting down. So accordingly, standing up burns more calories.
Numbersix: intervals or long, stead cardio? Intervals. This isbecause periodic high intensity training (when followed by moderaterecovery) simply does the trick. In fact, it provides about 1.5x moreefficiency than its counterpart.
Next,one set simply isn't enough. One set is fine for beginners, but oncethe person is past the adjustment period, the standards ought beraised to two to three sets per exercise.
Stretchingis also important. And the best time to do it is during the workouttraining. Each routine ought to start with a five minute workout inorder to increase the blood flow, and make the muscles moreresponsive. This is to say that stretching before or after the routineis fine, but the best way to roll is to make it a habit and stretch in-between the different exercises.
Nextoff, it is important to note that free weights are better thanmachines. Free weights will also build more muscles since they aremore demanding in all respects. Unlike the machines, the free weightsrequire the lifter to balance and stabilize his or her body.
Andlastly: coffee vs. carbs? And the answer is carbs, obviously. Caffeinemay be a fine trigger of fat burning energy, but all of its sideeffects (like headaches) work in favor of carbs on this one. This iswhy eating good quality carbs before each routine is a far bettersolution than pumping the system up with caffeine.
