Huge Calorie BURN during weight workouts...HOW?
Most of the time when people are on a "strength" day, they tend not to do too much cardio, maybe just a warm up then the rest of the time is spent sitting on a bench, weight machine and walking between exercises. If you are really challenging yourself during your strength sets your heart rate will increase for a small amount of time but then drop off again quite quickly. In order to burn as many calories as possible and as much body fat, you want to push during your strength sets but also add in quick 30-60sec cardio based exercises to keep that heart rate pumping.
Here are some examples you can throw in between every 1-3 exercises to get the most "Burn for your Buck"
jumping jacks/modified jacks
stairs (as fast as you can)
...just to name a few
So throw these into your next workout and you will definitely feel the difference and be breathing a lot heavier than you used to but you will feel AMAZING!
