Want to lose weight and burn fat? Try this intense cardio drill

Are you sick of the last remaining vestiges of fat that refuse to go away from stubborn areas like the thighs or belly? Well then this regime is for you. Designed by personal trainer Akshay Chopra, it’s sure to blast away any fat that dares stick around. What you need to do is ditch that time you spend plodding away on the treadmill. Akshay Chopra told TheHealthSite.com: ‘ Do you know why your trainer tells you to run for 40 minutes on a treadmill? Because it is the easiest way to pass your time (or you can say waste your time). Treadmills are a waste of time and were not built for gyms. So the first advice is to shun the cardio equipment in your gym and move outdoors. Consider the difference between the bodies of a long-distance runner and a sprinter. A long-distance runner usually has more body fat than a sprinter. The reasons for this is long distance running doesn’t burn much fat and instead claws away at your precious muscles’

Interval sprints

 a. Do a 20 sec sprint with 30-40 sec very slow jog or walk. Do this for 12 consecutive times.

b. Sprint for 60, 80, 100 and 120m on a flat ground. Rest period between each sprint is the time you take to walk back to the starting point. Continue for 3 sets with two minutes of rest between each set.

c. Do 10×100m sprints on an elevated ground. Rest interval is the time you walk down to the starting point.

If you want to burn fat, your workouts have to be tough. Try the aforementioned regime 3 times a week, along with three days of weight training for the best results.
