10 Workout Shortcuts to Maximize Your Calorie Burn

The pick of the week is this article, which summarizes 10 different types of training, intended to maximise your results and calories outburst.


1. Pyramid Training
2. The Tabata protocol
Dr. Izumi Tabata’s high-intensity interval-type training (HIIT) protocol calls for just 20 seconds of all-out drop-dead effort, followed by a mere 10 seconds of rest. This intense cycle is repeated eight times. This protocol reduces your risk of diabetes, increases your maximal aerobic power and anaerobic capacity, and:
“Another soon-to-be-published finding, which Tabata describes as ‘rather significant,’ shows that the Tabata protocol burns an extra 150 calories in the 12 hours after exercise, even at rest, due to the effect of excess post-exercise oxygen consumption. So while it is used by most people to get fit – or by fit people to get even fitter – it also burns fat.
3. Interval Cardio
4. Mix Cardio and Weights
5. Drop Sets
6. Plyometrics
7. Super Sets
8. Compounds Sets
9. Giant Sets
10. Combine Two Moves Into One
