Why Burst Training Helps With Weight Loss Resistance

You probably know a friend whose gym routine involves reading OK! Magazine or maybe watching The View while she leisurely strolls the treadmill. She's probably neither toned nor near her goal weight. Guys are equally guilty of elliptical surfing rather than lifting heavy weights or vigorous exercise.

Cardio is hardly the most effective type of exercise to burn fat and can actually create weight loss resistance. That's because cardio chronically increases your stress hormone cortisol.

What is your bursting exercise of choice in the living room?

Great article.

I'm curious what some of you non-gym (work out at home) PEERtrainer folks are doing for your bursting routines. Any favorite DVD's or home equipment? I could use some inspiration. Thanks!
