The fat burning pulse
Again and again, you hear that you should only run at moderate speed. Or that the fat burning only really starts after 60 minutes.
This is not entirely wrong, but it is misleading.
It is true that your body primarily burns the fat on a moderate load on the treadmill.
The body burns during intense exertion first the carbohydrates and only uses the fat stores in more substantial quantities after about 60 minutes.
However, very few people want to spend more than an hour on the treadmill.
The conclusion is to run only with moderate intensity from the start to burn fat from the start.
Here, however, a distinction must be made between burning fat and reducing body fat.
Because with moderate intensity, the calorie consumption is much lower than with high heat.
And whether you reduce your body fat does not depend on whether you use fat as an energy supplier or carbohydrates directly on the treadmill, but whether you have a negative energy balance at the end of the day.
In other words, you have to consume more calories than you eat with your diet.
For this, you can have a weight loss diet plan. Get created to limit your calorie intake.
However, if you don’t want to miss eating, you can also increase your calorie consumption through exercise.
The treadmill is ideal here. However, to burn lots of calories, you should choose a high-intensity run.
The most effective fat burning strategy
The most effective way, of course, is to burn calories on the treadmill and still be mindful of your diet.
But don’t worry, it doesn’t mean that you have to do without everything. Only fast food, sweets, and high-calorie drinks should be removed entirely from your diet.
For this, you should include plenty of fruit, vegetables, and water in your diet.
A strict low carb diet or other restrictions are not necessary.
The main thing is that you eat balanced and natural food and diligently burn calories on the treadmill.
Avoid these three mistakes on the treadmill
Before you get started, you should note a few critical points. Because there are still a lot of myths about running.
You shouldn’t make these three mistakes if you want to burn fat optimally.
A lot helps a lot
Many still use the motto “a lot helps a lot” when jogging. However, this is only partially true.
Of course, you burn more calories if you step on the treadmill more often. But beginners shouldn’t overdo it, running 3-4 times a week is enough.
After all, the ligaments and joints first have to get used to it.
If you do too much, you injure yourself more quickly and usually have to pause completely for many weeks.
Also, you should not run every day if the calorie intake is restricted. This would slow down the metabolism since the body burns valuable muscles.
Warming up is unnecessary on the treadmill.
While many warm-ups before jogging on the street, this is usually neglected on a treadmill. Without a brief warm-up on the treadmill, however, the risk of injury increases.
Short stretching and loosening exercises should, therefore, be the beginning of a running session.
You should also start at light speed and only increase it slowly, especially if you are working with an increased incline.
Run with your legs only
If you only use your legs on the treadmill, you are not working effectively. Even if the leg muscles do the original work, the trunk and arms can still be used.
This burns extra calories properly.
