1. Do intervals and high-intensity training (HIIT)
You’ve heard about their benefits—and for good reason. If you’re looking for a surefire way to burn fat faster and lose some pounds in the process, HIIT is a solid go-to.
“High-intensity interval training is more time efficient in caloric expenditure than a traditional cardio workout,” says Kurt Hester, head strength and conditioning coach at Louisiana Tech. “Not only will your body burn more calories during HIIT workouts but you’ll also continue to burn more calories and fat in the 24 hours after a HIIT workout. That doesn’t mean you need to limit yourself to only sprint interval workouts on a treadmill, though. Go out and sprint hills, drag tires, and push or pull sleds.”
