If you want to burn body fat and lose weight but do not have a lot of time, you are going to love the Fat Blaster Challenge. This routine involves interval training which is a type of physical exertion that consists of bursts of high intensity training combined with periods of low intensity training. The high intensity periods are usually at maximum effort, while the recovery periods involve either complete rest or lower intensity movement.
Fat Blaster Challenge is designed to be performed on either a stationary bike, elliptical or, rower.
NOTE: The treadmill is not recommended for this routine. It’s very difficult and can be dangerous to move on and off a moving treadmill.
GymBoss is our favorite way to keep up with the intervals.
In order to receive optimal results, perform this workout 3 times a week. Intense intervals have the best results when performed in the morning before breakfast. However, you will see results regardless of when performed. The most often asked question about this routine, “How fast should I go?” The response, “As fast as your feet will take you.”
