Scott, we need to lose body fat quickly. We enjoy the great outdoors so what do you suggest for cardio activities outside in this crazy world? My wife and I are both having difficulty with stubborn body fat that has accumulated over time. The steady cardio stuff just does not seem to be working as well as in the past. ~ Barry and Jean, Denver

Rapid Fat Burning
A ten second sprint followed by a thirty second jog pace is considered an interval sprint. Repeating this sequence for ten to twenty minutes with a high level of intensity during the sprint phases is very potent for fat burning. The only catch? It requires a great deal of effort which presents no problems for those wanting to earn great physique transformations. Clients using interval sprints do not have to be world class sprinters to earn benefit. The effort levels and volume can gradually build up over time while still earning great rates of body fat loss.
Change Up the Venues Often
Running Sprints is great, but most people do vary with other venues that do not tax their joints. Consider kayaks, bicycles, recumbent bikes, stair climbers, jump ropes, running in sand and more. Changing up the interval venues frequently helps to burn more calories as the movements are less familiar to the body. This also helps to prevent overuse injuries.
Two to three sessions per week is the appropriate frequency when weight training three times per week on separate days. Short interval sprint sessions still require accelerated recovery tools to maximize fat burning benefits and to prevent over training.
A twenty minute afterburner following a fat burning interval sessions further accelerates body fat loss. An afterburner is simply a steady state cardio session at 70% effort. The fat burning intervals create specific metabolic and hormonal conditions that make the afterburners very effective for fat loss.
