Short Workouts With A Real Big Payoff

The Skinny Confidential talks diet and fitness.

The busier I get, the less time I have to sweat.

I know, I know this sounds depressing but actually it’s been a blessing in disguise.

Why?

Because I’ve learned how to workout smart, in a shorter time frame ( think 25 to 30 minutes ) and I burn double the calories.

Say what?!

Basically I’m doing interval workouts all the time now.

Intervals get heart rate super high & then bring it back down throughout a workout. Remember when I did this post on running? Ok so, I’m doing that but on an Elliptical for thirty minutes three days a week. I wear a sexy, lil heart rate monitor & bring my heart rate up & down throughout the workout. BTW: 30 minute intervals is way more effective than steadily going on the Elliptical for an hour straight.

Also, with 30 minute intervals I’m burning calories hours after the workout.

The metabolism functions much better with intervals because it logs serious overtime after completing the workout.

Love!! I mean, right?!

The other three days a week I’m doing TSC workout plan ( which I’ll share in the next couple months ). These are 27-30 minute workouts that will kick your ass. Again, perfect for busy girls on the go. The workouts are good old fashioned squats, lunges, tricep dips with a Skinny Conf flare. Each day was put together in a meticulous way to help people ( & myself ) attain tone & lose fat as quick as possible.

This source states: “less time in the gym doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice fitness if you know this secret: Interval training. Research shows that interval training—workouts in which you alternate periods of high-intensity exercise with low-intensity recovery periods—increases fitness and burns more calories over a short period of time than steady-state cardio ( you know: just doing the same thing for your whole workout time ).”

Another source goes on to say “your body likes to be on cruise control, because that’s where it’s most gas efficient. But when you push on the gas pedal, as you do in intervals, your body becomes less efficient and has to burn more calories to do the activity. And these quick-but-killer efforts may be the closest thing you’ll find to a magic calorie-burning bullet. You not only log less sweat time ( which is kinder to your body ) but also continue to incinerate calories at an increased rate even during the walking or jogging recovery periods.”

An hour workout is awesome every once in a while…

BUT honestly? An hour in the gym five days a week just isn’t realistic ( for me, at least ).

Side: there’s a lot of fitness bloggers out there that are balls-to-the-walls freaking gnarls, man.

They eat, live, and breathe fitness.

That’s just not my style. To each its own though— if you’re in to that, cool, but you probably won’t like this blog!

My mentality is keep the workouts quick, effective, & accessible.

Anyway, I’m super excited to share TSC fitness program with you guys! I can’t wait!

In the meantime, cut the hour shit out. Go to the gym— push yourself to the limit in those 30 minutes. Get your heart rate up. Sweat. And then? GTF outta there!! You got a life to live!

If you’re spending more time at the gym than you do at home, stop! If you’re working out for hours a day, stop! If you think more is more, it’s not!

Keep it simple, stupid.

I spent a large part of today in a spread eagle/’happy baby’ position at Studio Barre. The.teacher.kicked.my.ass. With yesterday’s food overload I was jonesing for a hard, long workout. Studio Barre’s ballet-inspired fitness moves certainly did the trick. I feel sooooo much better.
