Do you want a best way to lose your belly fat? Try to sprint. According to recent research, sprint on a stationary bike 20 minutes every three times a week is believed to be able to eradicate fat deposits in the abdomen.
According to lead researcher Professor Steve Boutcher at the University of New South Wales, Australia, the sprint exercise could replace seven hours of jogging for a week for the same effect.
“Bike sprint is a very efficient form of exercise. The sprint exercise reduces visceral fat with less than seven times. It has a greater impact on cardiovascular and metabolic health of the reduction of fat deposits in the legs and arms,” Boutcher said as quoted in the Journal of Obesity.
The men who participated in this study, lose 2 pounds of body fat, 17 percent of visceral fat, and add 1.2 kg of muscle in their legs and buttocks after a 12 -week training program sprint bike.
“Other studies using aerobic exercise, such as jogging continuously, also found that the amount of exercise required to produce a similar decrease in visceral fat was around seven hours per week for 14 weeks,” said Boutcher.
The research team has previously studied the impact of the running program on the women, who also showed a significant decrease in body fat of a stationary bike for 20 minutes, three times a week. Sprint exercise is also good for those who want to increase muscle mass. Good luck.
