isn’t that they promote ineffective cardio as a way to quickly lose weight, fortunately most trainers know by now that interval training is a much better alternative for trimming client’s waistlines.
But what if YOU still think that stepping on a treadmill for 30 minutes, day after day, is the best way to fit into your old pair of jeans?
Well in that case, it’s time we rain on your cardio parade with a couple research studies proving cardio is NOT the best way to help you button up your pants.
1. In this cardio study, researchers found that 300 hours of cardio per year led to a measly 6-pound loss in men (and women, well, you only lost 4 pounds). Add it up and that’s a ridiculous 50 hours of cardio for a SINGLE pound of weight lost at BEST. Hmm, waste of time? Yep.

2. In another study, it was reported that some folks actually ate more after starting a cardio program, and as you might expect, the participants in this study ended up gaining weight on the cardio program.

Okay, so if most people know that interval training is better than long boring cardio, then why are so many of you not getting the fat burning results you expected?
Well, the reason is twofold; 1) boredom and 2) overuse injury
First, it’s pretty obvious that there are only so many times you can “run fast, run slow, run fast, run slow” before your mind screams “BORING!”, right? Sure.
As for overuse injuries, well, while our bodies (and joints) just aren’t made for the kind of pounding that a 30 to 45-minute jog demands, because of their high intensity nature, cardio intervals are no slouch on the joints either. And so IF they’re done too often, these types of intervals can lead to overuse injuries as well.
Now let’s be clear…
I’m NOT suggesting you avoid “traditional” interval training altogether. In fact, I still do it when all I have access to is a cardio machine, and that’s one reason why I’ve included variations of them in 31 Interval Training Workouts, but what I’m actually trying to say is that cardio machine intervals should be used in moderation.
BOTTOM LINE: Even if you replace long boring cardio with “traditional” cardio machine intervals, if you do the same type of cardio interval workout over and over again, then eventually you’ll get bored OR you’ll be in danger of developing an overuse injury.
So how should you use intervals to burn fat fast? Add VARIETY.
