Weight training is the most effective exercise to jump start fat loss
If you’re fat loss stalls, consider adding weight training to your exercise regimen
If you’re new to weight training, begin with a high repetition workout using low weights then slowly work up to three one hour sessions each week
If you’re already familiar with weight training, or if you’re an expert, Fittur enhances your resistance training by pairing the right macros with each workout
High Intensity interval training HIIT can jump start a fat-cutting cycle that has either stalled or refuses to get started
Try, for example, a work out of 30-second sprints, each one followed by a 90 second jogged recovery.
You can be more aggressive with one minute of sprinting followed by one minute of jogging.
Or less aggressive by replacing the sprint with a jog, and the jog with a walk
Most cardio exercises can be done as high intensity HIIT. Simply choose the length, intensity and number of intervals based on your fitness level.
The increased energy demands of HIIT adds 8-10% more calories to your exercise

The exercise calorie max is the point where you maximize health benefits from exercise.
It’s also the point where more exercise no longer contributes to any significant fat loss. Once you reach your max, you can keep exercising, but Fittur stops adding calories to your targets
Fittur automatically turns on your exercise calorie max when you’re eating at maintenance or below.
Your max is turned off when you’re eating above maintenance
Before making the decision to manually turn on or off, learn more by watching the exercise calorie max video
