Metabolism boosting workouts

A few guidelines – these metabolism boosting workouts are tried and tested programs for improving metabolism in fit populations.  Adapt distances to suit your fitness levels.  Use Borg’s perceived rate of exertion scale to self assess your effort level.

Research has shown participation is of no additional benefit if performed more than 3 times / week.  Twice a week is still very beneficial.  Remember to make notes of each workout (how hard it was, what adaption’s you had to make to complete it .

You can do the same workout 3 times or mix it up.  Good luck.

Track or treadmill HITT  HITT = High InTensity  Training

Warmup – light 10 min run/walk

Interval – 200 – 800 m runs at 80-90% max HR or where you would consider it to be ‘hard to very hard’ (this distance can be changed to between 200-1000m depending on your fitness)  Time the interval

Rest – light run / walk for the same amount of time x 3 (or less if you feel you do not need it)

Repeat – up to 4 times

Cooldown 10 mins
