A recent German study looked at the effects of constant speed walking versus interval speed walking on insulin sensitivity. Insulin sensitivity is important for fat burning because it means we can regulate our blood sugar well, mobilize glucose from carbs, and burn fat from our fat cells. This study proved that interval speed cardio (even when energy expenditure (calories burned) was the same as constant speed cardio) was far superior to constant speed for increasing insulin sensitivity and disposing glucose (burning energy via fat cells). We see this anecdotally in the results our clients get as well by transitioning their previous “cardio” training to interval training using weights.
Basically, if you want to get the most out of your time in the gym, and increase your insulin sensitivity to improve fat loss and weight loss, stop doing a constant walk on an incline on the treadmill for 60 minutes every day, and start doing intervals.

If you've ever wanted a chiseled six-pack or a flat, defined set of abs, you HAVE to be focusing on the rectus abdominis. To commemorate this glorious, Drake-infused occasion, we've whipped up the Ultimate Summer 2016 Playlist.
In my experience, HIIT is the #1 tool when it comes to incinerating the HORRIBLY stubborn body fat that plasters the inner crevices of the abs, specifically the lower abs. In practice you burn more overall calories, and ultimately more fat, at a higher intensity. Sorry, you don’t get anywhere near as much EPOC from long distance running (but you do from weight-lifting). While many different types of interval training exist, at the core it simply implies varying the intensity of a workout at a calculated rate.
Ratio — Ratio of time in the low-to-high intensity intervals (Walk 90 seconds, sprint 45 seconds = 2-to-1 ratio low-to-high. For more information on HIIT see the infographic below from The Greatist, which does a nice job laying out the foundation of interval training and a few different variations, including: Tabata, The Little Method, and Turbulence Training.
It also impacts how insulin works and is released, in a way that isn’t optimal for growth + recovery. I am sorr, but I don’t know of a single person in the world, that can sprint all-out for 45 seconds. I started with HIIT a couple of months ago, now I am doing 2 minutes of warm up, and then 1 minute at 12,5 mph and 1 minute of rest at 3,7 mph, for 15 or 16 minutes…. It’s amazing for basketball because it mimics the way you run — spontaneous bursts and short-duration sprints, with recovery in between. Absolutely — you can do it on a track, the street, an elliptical, stationary bike, rowing machine, etc. Hey Bryan, I have been trying to combine this HIT method with the 5×5 strength training regiment (not sure if you are aware of it). Many women love to run as it can bring such a great feeling of achievement and the endorphin rush can be quite addictive. If, like many, the idea of pounding the pavements or sprinting up grassy hills fills you with dread, fear not.

August 16, 2012 By Joel Runyon 92 Comments Last week, I was downtown chowing down breakfast with my friend Patrick Hitches downtown Chicago. Our talk quickly shifted from just catching up to fitness and comparing notes on our six-pack transformations.
If you don’t believe this, lets take a look at a recent informal case study I just did using google image search. Triathletes tend to do a pretty good job of balancing the two, but that’s a whole other story.
Unfortunately, this misconception that running leads to fat loss is not only common, but ineffective. If I see one more person spend twenty minutes doing crunches in a futile attempt to get a flat stomach, I’m either going to scream or cry (probably just scream though). Most people need to get to sub-10% body fat before your abs will show and that happens through diet – not anything else.
Instead of sitting around talking about why you couldn’t ever do it, get off your butt, change your habits and actually do it. Grow Stronger, Do The Impossible Get weekly emails on how to build a stronger mind, a stronger body and stronger life and do the impossible. Well, you could just cut out carbohydrates and go and do natural movements or just play some sports with friends.
I have a question for you, since you have access to a lot of top thinkers in the fitness field. Most of this is pretty good info, however I think it’s total BS to say that running is a terrible way to burn fat or get lean. Running is the single most INeffective way to lose bodyfat when it comes to health and fitness. It is, in my very opinionated opinion useless – unless, you want to be a better runner. Joel is correct in his answer… Not to mention (especially in females) how long distance steady state running completely trashing your T3 levels resulting in a trashed thyroid functioning. To add (and sorry I haven’t read the article yet, Patrick), the problem with long-distance running is that you build (or lower) your heart-rate, which helps you to run further and longer.
I think what Joel is trying to debunk, is that people want six-pack abs, while still having a muscular physique, and having that everday-functional strength, but achieving it through long-distance running.
Most people don’t aspire to look like Olympic long-distance runners, but they do aspire to look like Olympic short-track sprinters.
Symptoms will include severe pain when walking on the affected heel that is most noticeable in the morning and after periods of inactivity. In extreme cases, the irritation from a developed bone spur may cause very small tumors to develop on the nerve endings, which causes severe pain.
Turmeric A– this herb helps reduce the pain and inflammation associated with plantar fasciitis.
Feverfew A– this herb helps reduce inflammation and the associated pain by reducing prostaglandin levels.
Green tea A– this herb helps reduce inflammation through the antioxidant action it is known best for. Tea tree A– mix a few drops of tea tree oil into a massage oil like jojoba or sweet almond oil. Since I post a lot about Fitness on my Social media, Interestingly I get asked questions every now and then on Fitness either through DMs, Mails or even personally.
A : Contrary to the belief that I spend hours and hours in the gym, I actually am in and out of the gym in 1 hour flat. A : Ok if you follow me on Instagram you would know that I am currently following Bikini Body Guide (BBG) program by Kayla Itsines.
So to cut the long story short I bought her e- books online and now have finished 6 weeks of Part 1 (There are 3 parts). A : It stands for Bikini body Guide and is a 12 week plan designed by Fitness expert Kayla. A : Ok I get that a lot and I get very upset by people who say these things because guys Fitness is not about losing weight. A : I have done a whole article on that which you could refer to but yes strength training is extremely important especially for women.
A : Earlier I used to do a whole lot of HIIT or anything that would bring my heart rate up.
If you’re looking for one of the easiest and cheapest ways to stay fit or perhaps lose wait this winter why not try a Stationary Bike? When the industrial revolution started it didn’t take long for people to move indoors and get fat!


Stationary bicycles are a simple, safe and easy way to get your daily dose of necessary exercise. Using your Stationary Bike can also reduce signs of aging and contributes to your mental health. So, if your worried about gaining weight this winter or you just want to maintain your good health and positive feelings throughout the season then get yourself a stationary exercise bike. HIIT is an absolute beast of a workout, but it’s the fastest, most efficient way to perform cardio, with sessions typically lasting between 10-15 minutes max. In theory you DO burn the highest percentage of calories from fat during low intensity, steady state cardio (e.g. Regardless of who you are, start with a conservative intensity and gradually progress to higher speeds. I loved how you used facts to back everything you said and the pictures still keep it interesting. When your muscles are depleted, it’s important to shuttle nutrients in as quickly as possible — too much fiber can counteract that. I do mostly abs, chest and bicep workouts, being that those are the muscles I want to show nicely.
According to running trainer, Karen Muller, “Running is one of the most effective ways of burning fat and losing excess weight. She also suggests a running technique assessment for those who are new to running, those who find running uncomfortable or those prone to injury when running. Learn how to exercise for your decade, and follow us on Facebook and Twitter for more exercise hints and tips.
Patrick’s like a walking terminator and made his own abs transformation a few months back. And, as we talked, we marveled just how much bad information is out there about losing weight and burning fat (and even worse, how much of it I believed over the years). Running and getting lean are actually polar opposite goals (when’s the last time you saw a long-distance runner who was absolutely jacked and not named David Goggins?). The first person is Stephen Kiprotich – 2012 Olympic Gold Medalist in the Marathon event.
There are very few long distance runners that combine distance running while being ripped and strong.
Because of that, so many people buy into it who want to lose weight and get turned off to fitness altogether.
If you want to burn fat, 20 minute sprint sessions or jump rope interval training will do much more for you than those 10 mile runs. If you want to work your core get off your back and start doing full body exercises that work your core and stabilization muslces will much much more for you than spending an hour on your back doing 1,000 crunches.
And, if you really need to have a gym, you can make your nearby playground into a home gym. In my journey to lose 34 pounds in 8 weeks, I never did a workout that lasted longer than 30 minutes. Hell, when I started, I didn’t think I could do it until I got the photos from the photo shoot back! You can get free updates in your inbox via your new favorite newsletter and see all my projects at Impossible Ventures. A lot of it is perpetuated by bro-science and changes according to the profit profile of the company disseminating the information. It’s funny because your first tip on running to lose weight is something I believed was true and actually had a plan to start running for this reason.
Carbs is our energy source, and if you cut that out, FAT becomes your body’s go to generator. I have spent the last 10 months working out at home with just a pull up bar and a stability ball for equipment. I keep hearing that going below a certain bf% will stop menstruation and throw all the hormones out of whack. Definition of your abs depends a little bit on your genetics and a little bit on what ab exercises you’re doing.
Women fitness will generally have anywhere from 15-25% body fat depending on what level of fitness you’re at and what exactly your goals are.
My point was that most people think they can run their way to six pack abs and really it’s about diet more than pure running. If you want your thyroid to be slaughtered then chronic running is definitely the fastest way to make that happen.
The only way to obtain a six-pack (with a muscular physique) is through anaerobic exercises, or some form of high intensity interval training (I personally believe in CrossFit). If left untreated, the stress causes a bone spur to develop at the point of attachment on the heel. Fasciitis is irritated by poorly fitting shoes, hard-soled shoes and running or walking on hard surfaces.
They can also be caused by obesity, high arches, flat feet, physical injury, muscle inflammation, lupus, gout, nerve damage, excessive exercise, arch strain, and prolonged standing or walking.
Drink the tea frequently through the day as needed to ease pain and inflammation associated with plantar fasciitis. Take 3 to 5 droppers of tincture or 1 cup of infusion several times a day to relieve pain and inflammation. I spend 40 -45 min on my exercise and the rest of the time I am trying a pull-up or some new move & stretching. I came across this amazing woman on Instagram (Instagram is an awesome media ) when I started seeing a lot of transformation pics she used to post of people following her plan. As far as physical results are concerned its just been 6 weeks so its a little early to say anything plus the tougher ones are going to start post week 8 so its a long way to go.
We are so prone to Osteoporosis and Arthritis that this is the least we can do for our body.
Ever since I have started BBG, I do just as much as is recommended by her which is Low Intensity Steady State walking for 40 – 45 min. I had touched 60 kgs in 2009 (at my height of 161 cm) That’s when I hit the panic button.
You will be surprised to see in your progress pics how much your body is changing which may not be visible to our naked eye so yeah people click click click. I feel if I could control what goes in my mouth, my body would have been much different from what it is. I will definitely follow up with more sometime later but this is all I could think of compiling from the questions i received. Shortly after that inventors and engineering entrepreneurs starting think of new and innovative ways to help people get fit even though they were no longer doing physical labor in their work. Historically these bikes came in upright versions that looked very much like their street bike cousins. I sprint at 12.5 MPH — choose a level that’s intense and makes you run HARD, but at the same time make sure it feels safe. It improves cardiovascular fitness, reduces bone and muscle loss as we age and makes us feel great as a result of the endorphin boost. Walking stresses your joints considerably less than running and many people find it easier to incorporate a regular walking regime into their lives, than other forms of exercise. After talking it through and realizing many of the same myths are repeated over and over again, I decided it’s time to do some myth-busting on 5 commonly believed myths about six pack abs.
The second person is Usain Bolt – 2012 Olympics Gold Medalist Sprinter in the 100m, 200m, and 4x100m events.
In fact, you might hurt yourself if you’re overweight and put unneeded pressure on your joints throughout the exercise. Instead of throwing tons of weigh ton of weight on a squat rack and butchering a squat, do air squats or lunges to start. The only reason I could skip a workout was if my lazy butt decided it wasn’t worth it. Not the absolute best in time effectiveness, but one of the best practical-fun combinations in my opinion.


Running burns a TON of calories and most any sedentary person would find that if they started running on a regular basis (while keeping their daily caloric intake the same) they’d lose weight.
This constantly shocks your heart and your muscles – which leads to fat being burned for up to 48 hours post-workout (whereas aerobic-only exercise burns fat only up to 17 hours post-workout). Pain is often apparent first thing in the morning and is associated with athletes that carry out repetitive movements, for instance running, and people who may spend a large portion of their day on their feet, also obesity has a similar effect. Massaging arnica into a foot suffering from a bone spur will help relieve the pain and stretch the plantar fascia, relieving the stress on this ligament.
Ok before I start I have to tell you I am no expert and I will just answer from my own experiences. Exception to this fact is if I have to tape some videos or I catch any friend in the gym & I stop by to chit chat but that too after I am done.
Like many women out there I too suffered from Distorted Body Image issue for a very long time.
I still falter a lot but then there are people in my gym who help me out from time to time.
The idea is to remain in Low Intensity Fat burning zone which is recommended for Fat loss but it will keep changing as we proceed further in the program. Plus I go out a lot with my friends especially on weekends so you do end up eating outside food. It is recommended for faster recovery and muscle building so I do take it but in no way am I promoting or recommending anything to anyone.
For my abs workout I do 3 sets of crunches, 2 sets of reverse sit-ups, 2 sets of leg raises and a couple of other lower ab workouts. Also what do you think about 30 seconds easy pace, 30 seconds medium, and then 30 seconds all out sprint (in a pool)? I’d follow any of our WOTMs — our Summertime Shred might be your best bet because it combines HIIT with weights and dedicated ab training. It’s one of the simplest, cheapest and gentlest ways to exercises and done regularly, can increase cardiovascular fitness, thus improving the condition of the heart and lungs as well as working the muscles of the lower body.
Running is a great choice of exercise for a person with finer bone structure and a lighter build. As I mentioned previously in an article of mine, take in less calories than your body uses per day and fat loss is the only possible outcome.
The most common is to use gus or gels to get quick carbohydrate fuel and keep your body running. This stretch, combined with the massage, will help relieve the stress on the plantar fascia and help relieve the pain. Some are obsessed, some are frustrated, some have no clue, some maybe even switch off cos well they think it’s just not their cup of tea but somewhere silently wish they could be the fittest person around. I still have questions of my own that are unanswered and I keep seeking help from whomsoever I think can help me.
There were times when I would just not want to go to the gym but my trainer would land in the gym dot on time and I had no choice but to go.
I went as down as 54 Kgs ( with cardio) but then built muscles and now am stagnant at 55 – 56. It’s a holistic approach to slashing body fat, developing your abs, and slapping on muscle mass. If you want to get more defined muscles any proper combination of diet and exercise will help, and running in combination with strength training should do the trick quite nicely. Since I have been on this journey for more than 6 years I would be more than glad to help out anyone out there who is looking for answers. I want to give up because of my frustration of not being able to achieve what I want so yeah the struggle is very real but a few bad days won’t get in my way.
Also exercising helps you build metabolism, helps you build strength , build stamina, build your bones, build muscles. However people who have seen me earlier find a lot of difference because my body constitution has changed more than weight loss. It can be very good for people who may have problems with balance or even getting on a traditional bike. The latest and greatest type of bike is the Eyliptical, sometimes referred to as an Elliptical Bike or Cross Trainer Bike.
I do feel that I gained a little muscle but I’d like my chest and abs to be clearly showing.
I’m still not losing belly fat (after several months) but I think it has to do with my diet. Plus, it’s low impact, meaning that the joints and bones are put under minimal stress. I promise to keep it 100% real & truly hope that its of some help to whosoever comes across this Blogpost. I want to be as badass as her but I also realise that it may not happen at my age but that won’t stop me from trying. There was something very special about this program and it was not the program itself but the community that she has built through it. In the end its the muscles that help you burn calories even when you are not doing anything and lying on the couch. It does matter which version you choose any Stationary Bike will provide a great low impact cardiovascular workout. There would be a time when people around me would lose weight like it was the easiest thing to do and the only thing I was losing – was my mind. Compared to treadmills and some other exercise gear these bikes are also very quiet in operation and don’t take up a lot of space. I had the stamina and I was doing good with weights in the gym but I wasn’t happy at all. I think I had been working very hard on myself and sometimes I would punish myself for not being able to see results as I wanted to. Bicycling has been a popular and effective form of exercise so a very long time and it continues to be one of the most popular ways to stay fit today. Sometimes I totally watch what I eat and I see better results but sometimes I just give in to cravings so it’s a balance that I try to work for myself.
Mind you this was despite me doing some or the other exercise (albeit mindlessly) and being moderately active. Do you have any suggestions on how I can get my chest, biceps and especially my abs to show?
What works for me may not work for you and vice versa so dive into it & you will learn what works for you along the way. It’s also the method preferred by serious cyclists as they are very attached to their bikes and want to continue to train on the same equipment they will race in the summer season. Don’t join Zumba cos the girl next door is doing or start running cos someone is running marathons every year or start cross fit cos its the latest thing or mindlessly lift heavy weights because every macho guy in the gym is doing it. People would actually walk up to me and say nicest things about me motivating them to push themselves & be fit.
Yes you may never look like that model in the magazine but Eventually you will only be better than what you were yesterday.
But riding does more than exercise your heart and burn fat it also tones your legs, hips, thighs and glutes (bum). That’s actually when i started feeling ashamed of myself for being so damn cruel to my body. My Body had started showing changes but I was so mad at it all the time that I had failed to see it.
I am not lying nor am I giving any motivational speech but that’s when my body started responding better.
