Fat Burning Zone Myth

Fat Burning Zone

Fat Burning Zone Myth One Of the Biggest Myths Around: Lower intensity exercise puts you in the fat-burning zone, so it’s preferable to higher intensity exercise.

How Much HIIT Is Enough?

HIIT

Is 30 Minutes Of High - Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) Once a Week Really Enough? My answer is: YES, if you are working out several times a week, doing HIIT one of those times is a good thing.
