Are you looking to shed up to 60% more calories per work out??? Prevention just posted this great article giving their top ten tips to incorporate with every session.

  1. Quench with Cool Water
  2. Swing Those Arms
  3. Pop in Your Headphones (Working out to your favorite playlist can help you to go up to 20% longer and burn more calories, finds a study from West London’s Brunel University.)
  4. Put on Some Weight (To really rev your calorie burn, it is not about the number of reps, but the size of the weights.)
  5. Break Up Your Sets
  6. Head Outside (Research finds that exercisers burn 10% more calories when they walk or run outdoors than they do on a treadmill at the same speed.)
  7. Crank Up the Incline
  8. Log at Least 12 Minutes (Any amount of cardio will burn calories, but to really fight off pounds, you need at least 12 minutes (beyond a warm-up) of continuously moderate to high-intensity activity (where you’re breathing somewhat hard) most days a week.)
  9. Cut Your Workouts in Half (Australian researchers found that women who alternated just 8 seconds of high-intensity exercise with 12 seconds of low-intensity activity for 20 minutes, 3 times a week, slimmed down faster than steady-paced exercisers who worked out twice as long.)
  10. Don’t Skip Stretching
