Researchers in Australia have claimed that they discovered the single most efficient exercise that burns the most fat.
The claim is that subjects put through this test lost more weight with an hour of this exercise versus five to seven hours of jogging.
Fast sprinting caused the body to release high levels of a specific group of hormones, called catecholamines, which drive the release of fat, especially abdominal and visceral fat, from fat stores so it can be burned by working muscles.
”We don’t know why, but moving limbs very fast generates high levels of catecholamine,” Dr Boutcher, whose findings are published in the Journal of Obesity, said.
Sprinting for eight seconds raised a person’s heart rate while keeping lactic acid release, which make muscles tire quicker, to a minimum, he said.
