Dr Oz: Fast Exercise Fat-Burning Workout
Dr Michael Mosley’s The Fast Diet put a surprising new spin on the approach to meal plans. Now the popular British medical professional is back on the scene with a follow-up plan, Fast Exercise: The Simple Secret of High-Intensity Training.
Dr Oz: Quick Weight Loss Workout
Dr Michael Mosley was diagnosed with Diabetes, which runs in his family, but he did not want to take medication, so he tried to make lifestyle changes to improve his health. His diet plan helped, but he needed exercise to complete the picture.
What’s amazing is that you can start out with just 20 seconds of training a day and build up to spectacular results. Since most of us are not getting the recommended 30 minutes a day of exercise, this is a plan that will probably appeal to a lot of busy people.
Dr Oz: Quality High Intensity Training Exercises
Dr Mosley’s plan is about the quality of your exercise, rather than the amount of time you spend in the gym. If you push yourself, short bursts can give you the same or better results. He said that’s because they boost the powerful cells inside your muscles to suppress your appetite and continue burning fat for up to 24 hours after you work out.
Here’s how the plan breaks down over the course of a week:
- 20-second HIT Workout: Days 1, 3, and 6
- 7-minute FAST Strength Workout: Days 2 and 5
- Rest: Days 4 and 7
Dr Oz: What is a High Intensity Training Workout?
Dr Mosley said you can do 20-second bursts of intense workout to build up your heart rate. Use high resistance on a treadmill or stationary bicycle to get your heart going and push yourself for about 20 seconds. As you get more fit, you can increase the amount of time or the number of cycles you do.
After two or three cycles, you should see that your heart rate has climbed each time. Dr Mosley said he only has to work out for a total of about four minutes, including rest periods, on these days.
Dr Oz: What is Fast Strength Training?
There are two other workout days on the plan that are for Fast Strength Training. Dr Mosley got Dr Oz to do this with him. It’s about muscle building, rather than cardio.
Just alternate between sets of Push Ups and Squats, with very short rest breaks in between them.
Dr Oz: Fast Exercise Rest Days
It’s also important to rest and let your body rebuild on this plan. To start seeing your best results, Dr Mosely said you should stick to the plan, along with a good calorie management diet, over the course of six weeks. Of course, you should consult with your doctor before starting any new diet or exercise regimen to make sure it is right for you.
