The Best Method To Ramp Up Fat Burning 

If you’ve been struggling with your weight loss efforts, it may be time that sought out a new approach. Or, perhaps it isn’t weight loss you’re after but rather, you simply want to get yourself in better physical condition – without spending hours on the treadmill.

Whatever your specific case happens to be, I really recommend that you take a look at the Beach Body Insanity program.  Now, as the name suggests, this program is not for the individual new to exercise. It’s going to push you to the limit, so you should have some base training behind you.  Don’t let this scare you too much though – anyone who is at the intermediate level can take part in the Insanity program and when the hard work is put in, they will be very rewarded.

So what is Insanity?

This program is a cardio based program that involves something called Max Interval Training.  This has you alternating between very intense cardio periods and lower intensity cardio periods or full out rest periods. Because of this on/off nature, this is what spikes your metabolism and will keep it higher for hours to come.

Some studies actually suggest the program will have you burning up to 1000 calories per hour – an unheard of amount. Do this a few times a week and the weight will come off in a hurry.

The program is designed to be 60 days long, so in 2 full months, you can see dramatic changes taking place.  It will work slightly on your power and strength capability, but take note it is more of a cardio program than anything else. I would recommend you still partake in a more formal strength training program along with doing this workout.

The workout itself will build from five workouts per week of 30 minutes to doing four workouts per week of 45-60 minutes per session.

Because this program incorporates a good amount of plyometrics into the mix, it’s also an excellent option for those who are doing other forms of sport specific training and simply want to see a significant boost to their athletic capabilities.

If you are looking for a challenge, I promise you that Insanity will deliver it.
