Start by doing cardio exercises to get your heart rate up and improve your metabolism. A good fast-paced walk three times per week is a great way to accomplish this. Not only does this burn calories, but it’s good for your heart.
Did you know that a good, consistent cardio workout can increase your metabolism by up to 24 hours? Yep, it’s true!
A Quick Exercise for Your Metabolism
Below is a sample workout that you can do to help give your metabolism a quick boost. It will help your body burn calories more efficiently if performed regularly.
1) Perform 30 seconds of hard exercise (i.e. run in place as fast as you can)
2) Perform one minute of moderate exercise (i.e. a casual jog or brisk walk).
3) Repeat this process 10 times.
4) Cool down for 3-5 minutes
In addition to a healthy diet, walking and/or jogging is one of the best stomach exercises you can perform because it raises your metabolism enough to burn excess calories all over your body.
Total body fitness is the key to a flat stomach, not just spot toning one area. Why not kick-start your fitness program with a nice, fast-paced walk 3-4 times per week? Your stomach and the rest of your body will say, “Thank you.” 🙂
