So summer is already loading, I mean it’s literally just a few months away and if you have been slacking, then it’s time to get this party started, so we can all be bikini ready.
For weightloss, the truth is that it is not enough to workout, nope, you actually have to burn a certain number of calories per day to actually see results. The minimum daily required calorie burn for weightloss is 500 calories daily, so you can imagine how much faster your results will be, if you took it up so many notches higher, and made it a 1000 calorie burn.
I know that once people hear a 1000 calorie burn, there is an inherent fear that makes them go, is that even possible?
Well burning 1000 calories is actually very possible, but it just requires a higher level of discipline and to be honest, a greater time commitment.
So how can I burn 1000 calories while exercising? Here’s how…..
1) Stay Active; if you can stay active throughout the day, walking instead of driving, using stairs instead of elevators and just making sure to have an active day. So when you burn a certain number of calories at the gym, like 600 or 700 calories, then supplement it with an active day, you’re definitely going to be burning 1000 or more calories.
2) Walking; one of the easiest ways to burn 1k is by walking. Walking on a threadmill for an hour, at an incline of 6 – 8 percent and a speed of over 6km per hour, you are sure to be burning 1000 plus calories daily.
3) HIIT; one way to burn so many calories in one sitting, is to do a variety of HIIT exercises, like jumping jacks, skipping and cardio. While this is very tasking, the results from it are very satisfying and very well worth the effort put into it.
