Training For Weight Loss but not sure what works best?
If you are following a diet which is lower in carbohydrates then as a general rule, you should ideally be doing ‘lower intensity exercise’ (LIT). The reason for this is because you will have less ‘glycogen’ available in the system to use during ‘high intensity training’.
Lower intensity training is ideal for the following categories;
- Complete beginners
- Coming back to training after a break
- Heavily overweight or obese people
- Injury rehabilitation
- Health complications affecting exercise
- The elderly
But what is the best way to lose weight fast?
High Intensity Training also known as ‘HIT’, ‘Circuit Training’ or in the modern day an age, ‘Cross Fit’ is an excellent way to dramatically change your body and health. The reason that ‘HIT’ Training destroys ‘LIT’ is because you get more back for the time you invest.
Low intensity training burns more calories only whilst you are doing it and doesn’t build much muscle or fitness in comparison to high intensity training, that can also be done in half the time or less!
The only problem with this is, you need to eat more carbohydrates when doing this sort of training, so it conflicts with a lower carbohydrate diet! So what do you do?
Training For Weight Loss: EAT SMART FOR WHAT YOU DO THAT DAY!
An overall diet for getting lean and maintaining it would generally be higher in protein, good quality fats and moderate to low in carbohydrates. On your non-training days, this is ideal for slow release energy, stable blood sugar levels and recovery.
On the days you do decide to train, increase your carbohydrates pre and post workout to give you the boost you need!
If you want to be ultra strict and get super lean, have low calorie, high energy foods just around training time to give you that last minute boost such as bananas or dried fruit. This way, you can maintain your eating program. Go for it!
