Hey guys, today I’m going to talk to you about how to do what’s called burst training. High-intensity interval training. Don’t let it scare you. If you’re not conditioned, you’re going to start slow.
I have a driveway that is fairly long and has a slope, and so what I normally do is run up and down my driveway. I run up it, and then take a little bit of break walking back down. I do that a few times. It’s going to make me really winded. It’s gonna raise my hormones that have to do with fat burning. Testosterone, growth hormone, yes, even you girls can do that, and you’ll gain the benefits of increased fat-burning hormones. It’s a great way to increase your metabolism. It’s a great way to resensitize your cells to hormones.
Exercise may be the cherry on top, but it’s a pretty big factor for a lot of you to getting your metabolism changed. And that’s what you need to do. You need to get better at burning fat. Some of you are stuck in sugar-burning mode, and you have just lost the ability to tap into fat on your body. This is one way to get those hormones working for you. To get your fat-burning hormones to reverse that whole situation.
What I do is I just walk down. Then I run back up. If you don’t have the conditioning, you might just walk up and then try to walk faster. And just slowly over time, you can incorporate this base on your conditioning. You can do this on an exercise bike. You can do it on elliptical training. You can do it on a treadmill. You can do it at your local high school track. You can do it up flights of stairs in a hotel. That’s what I do on vacation. When we go to Myrtle Beach we have a 20-story condominium down there, and I’ll just go up and down the steps. And it really puts your body in a fat-burning mode. You only have to do it every other day. That’s the beauty of it, and it might only take you 10 minutes.
Some of you, if you have conditions that won’t allow this, it’s okay. There are different ways that you can adapt this. Just do a little bit of investigating. You’ll find out that the whole concept here is just getting yourself breathless in maybe a 30-second period. Take a little bit of a break ’til you catch your breath. Go back and do it again. Take a break. Go back and do it again. You might only start off with two or three reps in the beginning and build yourself up where you can do five or six of them.
You should be a little bit winded from the first rep. Then a little more winded on the second rep. Don’t kill yourself in the beginning, though. Gradual. This isn’t a race. But when you get to an exertion level where you’re out of breath, that’s what’s really going to kick up your fat-burning hormones. Then I’m going to do one more.
But you guys get the point. You can do this quickly. It doesn’t take a lot of time. Do it every other day. This kind of physical exertion will really start ramping up those hormones. And I’m telling you something. You want to change your body composition, more muscle, less fat. This combined with weight training will really, really change your body. This is the stuff that I did to transform my body and to get my hormones working better again. So, getting them in your cells by doing this type of exercise really can be helpful.
I hope that helps.
Take care, guys. God bless.
