Metabolism with Cardio Fitness Routines

High metabolic rates are one of the major reasons for burning calories effectively. Unfortunately, metabolism slows down as we age which slows down the fat burn. To improve metabolic rates and attain permanent weight loss, you need to change your body to become more efficient and train it for maximizing calorie burn.

One of the best ways to do that is to follow exercise routines such as Cardiovascular Conditioning (cardio workouts). Cardio conditioning and weight lifting are proven to burn the calories at an accelerated rates, builds up muscle mass, and offers protection against the drop in metabolic levels.

Cardio Training to Boost Metabolism:

Cardio ExercisesThe goal of exercise regimes is to boost the metabolic levels that can result in fat loss. Although strength-training workouts can also provide you with excessive fat burn due to the muscle build up, but cardio workouts are metabolism-boosting routines that will get your heart pumping through different style of techniques.

The length of calories burn from any cardio workout depends on what kind of cardio conditioning you are utilizing, including walking, running, stair climbing, stationary biking, or higher cardio routines such as jump squats, lunge jumps, sumo burpees, plank jumps, mountain climbers, and high interval cardio routines. In a 16-month study, it was noted that participants who were involved in moderate intensity cardio exercise 20-45 minutes for 3-5 days per week saw an increase in the resting metabolic rate of 129 calories per day.

Most Effective Cardio Workout for Metabolism:

One of the best workouts to boost metabolism after exercise – used most widely around the globe – is High intensity interval technique. It is more effective than other cardio-respiratory activities as it involves high intensity intervals for at least 30 minutes. In the end, you will increase your calorie burning process all through the day, even while you rest, and offer you more energy.

Plus, when you indulge in such high intensity workouts, your body will burn more calories for recovery, while building up your cardiovascular endurance. Incorporate cardio training with weight training and you will can raise your metabolic level higher than ever.

There are several ways, through which you can add cardio training into your daily exercise routine and maximize metabolism to accelerate fat burn.

  • Running on a treadmill for 90 seconds, followed by 30 minute walk and repeating it for half hour
  • Train with Beachbody’s TurboFire HIIT training drills, for 10 to 55 minutes to burn up to 9 times more fat.
  • Follow max interval training through Shaun T’s Insanity workout as the best intense cardio fitness workout. Train through 3 to 5-minute blocks of insane workout followed by mini break and then repeat.

Additional Tip:

Consult your doctor before you take on any intense fitness routine. When you are doing HIIT cardio workouts, make sure you perform right warm up and cool down to avoid any injuries.
