Lose weight by exercising only 12 minutes 3 times a week
Burst Training is the new aerobics by Dr. Dan Pompa
It’s called Burst Training, and it’s the most contemporary thinking on aerobics. Burst Training is high intensity, short duration exercise that causes the body to respond with increased hormones and physiology needed to burn fat and produce muscle even after you’ve completed your workout. It’s minimum time with maximum results!
Burst Training is designed to push the body to its maximum ability for a short period of time as opposed to longer, slower paced workouts, such as running on a treadmill for 45 minutes. Contrary to popular belief, more is not better! Working out for three minutes every other day is all that is needed to start shedding excess weight. Burst Training is so convenient, it’s not necessary to skip workouts even on a busy schedule. Best of all, when using Burst Training, the body will continue to burn fat for hours upon hours after the activity.
