How to Reduce Body Fat - Gym Mistakes

Below are 5 gym mistakes that keep you from losing weight:

1. Always Doing The Same Workout

People often fall into the trap of hitting the treadmill for 30 minutes every time they workout.

No point - it works at first, but then your body starts to adjust to the

routine, and you burn fewer calories. To keep seeing the results, mix it up by varying the intensity or duration of your rest period. And look at changing your entire routine on a monthly period. You must mix it up.

2. Distractions

If you're watching TV during a workout, you're not working hard enough! Instead of relaxing while working out, use interval training. It's short but effective.

Start off with a 5 minute warm up, followed by 1 minute of working out as hard as you can and then reduce the intensity for 2 minutes. Repeat the back and forth the intensity 5 times to get the optimal fat loss results. As your fitness improves, increase the duration of your hard intensity.

3. Holding onto the Handlebars

When your arms take your body weight off your legs, you will burn fewer calories. Therefore, use your whole body weight - that way you can get a better core workout and burn more calories.

4. Not Using The Incline

Set the treadmill on an incline up. That way it will be more

challenging - and creates more activity for your glutes and hamstring

making them stronger and burning more calories.

5.Over Fueling

Forget the sports drinks or energy bars. Limit yourself to about 300 calories - this is the same amount of calories you'll burn during a 30 minute workout. Anymore than 300 calories and you will not reduce body fat - better still cut it off completely and stick to water.

This is how not to reduce body fat.
