So there is a new term that a lot of people use and its called "Fasted Cardio" but what is that term and does it work? We will break it down below:
Fasted Cardio is misconceived as it doesnt just mean doing cardio on an empty stomach but it means doing Cardio at optimum speeds to build muscle burn more fat and get that heart rate up
So now that we know what Fasted Cardio is how do we burn the most fat as possible while building muscle at the same time. One thing to remember is that everyones body is different and muscle growth varies from each other. For myself I run on an empty stomach and do lots and lots of fast sprints, stairs, and run sprints faster every interval. In between each interval I do jump squarts and burpees. They help burn the fat that I am trying to burn. Be very careful here and y9ou dont want to crash the heart rate and over due it.
Intervals are the key for me and keeping the heart rate up while running faster on a higher incline works for me. It doesnt always work for everyone though.
Some people I know use slower intervals and do intervals of kettlebells and work for them very well. Be very careful whatever you are trying to achieve as it can cause injury if not done correctly. If you have a trainer consult with them first and foremost as they know your routine and what will work for you. If you dont get a coach to help you push yourself to the limit.
This is not just for runners but anyone trying to burn more fat and become the fittest person they can.
