Interval training, bursts of high intensity cardio followed by lower intensity recovery periods, will not only burn more fat than a steady paced workout, but it increases your metabolism too. The harder your interval training session the longer the after burn effect lasts, where your body burns calories while recovering from an intense workout. This type of workout also helps reduce belly fat — helping you get ready for bikini season.
