Celebrity trainer Ramona Braganza loves the 200-year-old kettlebell-based Turkish get-up. Despite its complexity, she claims the total-body conditioning move works well.
Los Angeles personal trainer Jill Penfold says running at an angle burns 50% more calories. Hill or sloped treadmill walks for 5–10 minutes are recommended by Penfold. She says, “Your heart rate should elevate pretty quickly as you pick up your pace.”
Running on an Incline
Although you may not have open water, you can still incorporate this fat-blasting aerobic workout into your gym routine. Penfold believes rowing machines engage your legs, abs, arms, shoulders, and back while raising your heart rate and burning fat.
The Rowing Machine
Contrary to popular opinion, HIIT training burns more fat than steady-state exercise. Hope Pedraza, a San Antonio fitness facility owner and ACSM-certified personal trainer, advocates interval training, which quickly alternates muscle groups.
The after-burn effect is most pronounced with hard lifting. "Even after you stop working out, your body will continue to burn calories," Spraul explains. Be careful not to let your form deteriorate as you gain muscle mass, as this could lead to injury.
Gonzalez claims that daily brisk walking for 45-60 minutes can do wonders for your metabolism, despite its seeming simplicity. "Plus, it ensures that you don't over-train, which can lead to an over-production of cortisol—a stress hormone that's been shown to contribute to belly fat."
