I'm just curious to know what works best.
YngHungSFSD saidMost effective by far is High Intensity Interval Training. This can be done with most cardio exercises like jogging and biking. It involves alternating periods of all out sprints with periods of active recovery. It has been shown in multiple studies to be the most effective in reducing body fat, increasing aerobic capacity, developing speed, etc. Although there are various time lengths in different versions of it, its basically a sprint of 20 to 60 seconds followed by 30 to 180 seconds of active recovery at a pace that is approximately a 4 out of 10 for you. Your sprints should be an effort level of at least 9 out of 10. Although this is by far the most effective method because it manages fatigue and boosts output, it is not appropriate for everyone. Anyone with heart, blood pressure or orthopedic issues should talk with their doctor before starting this. If you are healthy enough for vigorous exercise, add this to you routine a couple days a week and watch the results start coming fast.
justinmiami saidWhile all of this is very helpful, are there any outdoor exercises you all could recommend? i don't like going to gyms that much. i dont like the feeling of being watched while i exercise.
