Do the right type of training:
Contrary to what many of you may believe, running for hours on the treadmill is not the most effective weight loss method. If you want to drop body fat and tone up, there are more beneficial (and way less boring) ways of training that will help you to achieve the desired results.
High Intensity Interval Training (or HIIT) involves doing short bursts of intense exercise followed by short rest periods. This type of training will burn fat faster due to the oxygen debt during the workout and your body’s need for more oxygen post-workout to return back to a normal state. You will continue to burn calories for longer after the session. Result!
Weight training is another very effective method of training. The more lean muscle you have, the faster your metabolism and therefore the more calories your body is going to burn, which will help you to drop body fat. Try to include compound movements such as squats and deadlifts, which work a number of different muscle groups at the same time.
