Can Doing Intervals Burn Belly Fat?

According to an Australian fat loss expert, Professor Steve Boucher, he says that "high intensity intermittent exercise (i.e. intervals) may result in greater fat loss in the abdomen".

Basically, intervals burn stomach fat FIRST, over all other sources of fat on the body. Nothing else, not crunches, nor cardio, has ever been shown to result in stomach fat spot reduction.

This is big news. If you want to lose belly fat, you have to be doing intervals.

Choose any piece of cardio equipment (preferably an upright stationary bike or treadmill) and warm-up for 3 minutes unless you've already done a strength workout before hand. After warming up, increase the intensity (subjective 8 out of 10 level of intensity) so that you are able to maintain that level for 60 seconds (if on the bike it should feel like you're peddling through mud). Then drop the intensity back down to a subjective 3 out of 10 level of intensity for 120 seconds. To start perform that cycle 3 times.

Remember losing fat doesn't have to be impossible, but it will require to give some effort. As my mom used to say "Anything in life worth getting is hard to get".

I'd love to hear how you make out so give that a try and let me know how it works.
