How To Burn More Fat, With Less Effort

ScienceDaily (Feb. 8, 2007) — Researchers from the University of New
South Wales (UNSW) have found an easier way of getting off those extra
kilos you may have gained over the holiday season.

The team has trialled a different way of exercising, which burns more
fat than regular continuous exercise.

“The group which did around eight seconds of sprinting on a bike,
followed by 12 seconds of exercising lightly for twenty minutes, lost
three times as much fat as other women, who exercised at a continuous,
regular pace for 40 minutes,” said the team leader, Associate Professor
Steve Boutcher, Head of the Health and Exercise Science program, in the
School of Medical Sciences at UNSW.

The study involved a group of 45 overweight women who cycled three times
a week over a 15-week period. Professor Boutcher said this would be
applicable to other types of exercise such as swimming, walking, and
rowing. The results have been presented at recent meetings of the Heart
Foundation and American College of Sports Medicine.

“We think the reason that it works is because it produces a unique
metabolic response,” said Professor Boutcher. “Intermittent sprinting
produces high levels of chemical compounds called catecholamines, which
allow more fat to be burned from under the skin and within the
exercising muscles. The resulting increase in fat oxidation drives the
greater weight loss.”

The women lost most weight off the legs and buttocks.

“This maybe unique to this type of exercise,” said Professor Boutcher.
“We know it is very difficult to ‘spot reduce’ troublesome fat areas.
When you do regular exercise, you tend to lose fat everywhere and you
tend to look emaciated. Our results are unusual but were consistent
across the women who performed the sprinting exercise.”

“Overall, any type of exercise is good. You just have to work out your
objectives, whether it is to increase muscle, lose fat, or enhance other
aspects of your life such as improving the quality of your sleep,” said
Professor Boutcher.

And there is a positive message for some people who are overweight.

“A lot of people are fat despite having a good diet and a high level of
physical activity,” he said. “But being ‘fat and fit’ is much healthier
than being lean and unfit. Those overweight people who don’t have
excessive fat around their abdomen and don’t have low grade inflammation
typically stay healthy and don’t become diabetics.

“The message that fat is awful is an exaggerated one,” he said.

Dr Gail Trapp was the Chief Investigator on the research.

If you weren't already aware that high intensity intervals are the way
to
do cardio, here's your chance to get on the bandwagon.
