Any tips on how to decrease body fat percentage and increase muscle mass at the same time?
High intensity interval training is a great way to decrease body fat percentage and increase muscle mass. It involves doing sets of resistance training or activity that gets your heart rate up beyond your anaerobic threshold, then allowing for full recovery between sets. This allows for reconstitution of fuels and burning of fat during the recovery period.
Transcript: "Well, one tip on how to decrease body fat percentage and increase muscle mass at the same time as doing high intensity interval training. So that is essentially we're going to lift weights or do cardiovascular exercise, that's going to increase your heart rate beyond your anaerobic threshold. So you're an aerobic threshold is about the point where you start feeling, like you're breathing, really, really hard. And your body is starting to accumulate lactate, you're starting to fatigue and you're having a hard time getting more exercise done. So once you That anaerobic threshold and go beyond that. We call that high intensity training. The interval part is making sure that you get full recovery. So we get a couple benefits one as your heart rates, coming back down and going into recovery, we are reconstituting the fuels that you need to be able to do work in your next consecutive sets but you're also getting some aerobic it affect. So as the heart rate goes down, you're going to be burning fats for fuel. So, by doing a large number of volume of sets anywhere for depending on your Cassidy anywhere from 12 to 25 or 26 sets of resistance training or activity. That gets you to come up, come down, come up, come down. That's a really effective way of both decrease in body fat percentage and increase in muscle mass. So there's a little more Nuance to that lots of different programming things that we need to talk about in terms of how to prescribe high-intensity interval training but that's a really great method to get what you're looking for."
