It may still be the middle of winter, but hopefully you’re following a daily and weekly exercise regimen. If you want that toned body for the summer, now is the time to get your butt to the gym for some serious training — if you haven’t already started. While CoolSculpting may be able to achieve some level of circumferential reduction of your problem areas before you hit the beach, you can always accelerate the process by committing to an exercise regimen that keeps you moving most days of the week. Experts say 30 minutes to an hour of moderate to high intensity exercise can help you burn unwanted fat. And there’s no need to go crazy – a walk around the block at a fast pace counts as long as your heart’s pumping!
Of course to truly slim down, you’ll have to augment your workouts with some weight training. It’s common knowledge amongst medical experts that cardio isn’t enough to burn fat. You don’t have to totally ditch it, but you’l need to work on your muscles. Lean muscle tissue burns the most calories, which is why you’ll need to incorporate some strength training into your regime to achieve the best possible results from your efforts.
In a couple of months, you’ll be able to hit the beach with a leaner, fitter body. Think about that the next time you’re working out!
