TOP 3 WAYS TO BURN EXTRA CALORIES AT THE GYM

Whether you’ve hit a weight-loss plateau or just want to torch maximum calories from the first day, a few simple gymming tweaks can get you more out of every workout. Use these smart strategies to burn calories more efficiently.

Plug in your headphones

Fight the flagging energy with some upbeat music. Working out to your favorite music can increase your workout efficiency by over 30%. Music distracts people from pain and fatigue, elevates mood, increases endurance, reduces perceived effort and may even promote metabolic efficiency, finds a study from West London’s Brunel University that ran a study on the psychology of exercise music. Castos Karageorghis, the leading expert of the study group claims that music is a legal performance enhancing drug. Create your fitness playlist and pop in the earplugs to get it better at the gym!

Hit the treadmill

Well, we know you’re already on the run. But who doesn’t like to do more in less time? Crank up your cardio workout with a few simple tips. Start easy, free up those arms. Resist the urge to hold the sidebars of your treadmill machine, the more your body moves, the more calories you’ll burn. Interval training is the king when it comes to cardio. Switch between high and low inclination with a 10-20-30 speed formula. Do 1-minute repeats consisting of 30 seconds fast walking, 20 seconds moderately paced running, and 10 seconds high speed.

Limit Your Rest

Are your glutes attached to a bench during your rest periods? Since burning calories is all about keeping your heart rate up, long rest periods are not what you’re looking for. Try to catch up a quick breath and get back to push it again. Use a timer or still better, try density training. Between sets of abs, for example, skip a rope or do an arm rotation. Just choose movements that don’t recruit the muscles of your target workout set.
