Want to lose weight? Then get outside your comfort zone. By adding metabolic acceleration (or “M.A.”), you burn more fat than with a standard routine. The word ‘metabolic’ translates to the breaking down of food into energy. During metabolic bursts, you burn more calories working at peak levels, alternating between active rest periods.
Many people may think Metabolic Acceleration Training (also known as “HIIT Training”) is an all-out, extreme pace. However, it simply refers to the basic concept of alternating periods of high-intensity with periods of rest for recovery. For some people, interval training may mean walking faster, then backing off. Studies have shown that people with diabetes receive more benefit from interval walking versus walking at a consistent pace.
The added benefit is the residual calorie burn after the workout—referred to as the EPOC (Excess Post-Exercise Oxygen Consumption). As your cells continue to need more oxygen, they are multiplying and working harder after the routine.
In today’s mini-podcast with Dr. Martin Gibala, Ph.D., he talks about how you’re new to M.A., start by simply getting out of your comfort zone and picking up the pace. Do not go from 0-60 overnight!
