How to Lose Pounds for Free
1. Do some form of high intensity interval training 3-4 times a week for 20-25 minutes.
You can do this with just about any exercise. If you’re big on using treadmills, use them. Elliptical, stairstepper, normal stairs, out on the street, stationary bike, whatever.
Here’s what you do. You want to exert 85-90% intensity to doing whatever cardio exercise you want. Do this for 10 or 15 seconds. NO MORE. This is about the longest the human body can sustain that type of effort for the average person. Once you’ve finished that, now I want you to do active rest. Active rest is nothing more than doing that same exercise, but doing it at maybe 25% effort for 50 seconds.
Examples… you sprint hard for 10 seconds and then you walk for 50 seconds. You ride the bike hard for 10-15 seconds and then you ride it slow for 45-50 seconds. Same thing with all the other exercises.
Don’t do anything more than 25 minutes of this type of training.
2. Jumping jacks during tv commercials.
Ok, this is totally, 100% different than the other tip. Here’s the thing. I’d like for you to do jumping jacks during 3 minute commercial breaks. I want you to do them during 5 of these breaks. So that totals out to 15 minutes. The reasoning as to why is two-fold. First, spreading out mini-workouts like this gives a tremendous boost to your metabolism. Also, I likes these because they are easy to fit into busy schedules.
Regardless, shoot for 15 minutes of jumping jacks 6 days a week.
