I thought I'd read somewhere that we should do the two daily workouts separately, rather than back to back, but I couldn't remember why (or if I'd made that up).
So, I asked Fat Loss Quickie Scott for some research, so he sent me this today:
Quote from Home Office Quickie Workout Scott:
According to Dixie Stanforth, metabolism expert from the University of Texas at Austin, two smaller workouts can be just as effective as one. The reason being… apparently our metabolism stays revved up for at least an hour after a high intensity workout.
That's two extra hours that your metabolic furnace will be revved up.
Splitting up your workout boosts your metabolism twice, resulting in extra calorie-burning time over the routine if you hadn't split it up.
So, doing two smaller workouts each day (and even taking an extra 10 minute walk in the middle of the day) will help your body burn the fat faster.
I've gotta tell you, yesterday, I put off my workouts until late afternoon and I had the WORST day. Emotionally I felt puny, physically I felt like a slug, and mentally – I sure didn't get as much done. (Those of you on Twitter who saw my tweet about feeling LOOOOOOW and gave me hugs and a butt-kicking – I appreciate it much! I needed it.)
So, today, I'm going to get off my butt in a few minutes and do the resistance portion this morning, and do the cardio later in the day, to see if it makes a difference in how much I get done – and in my overall mood, as well.
Be sure to check in here today with your progress, concerns, and feedback.
All right guys. Let's find 10 minutes today to get healthier so we can enjoy the LIFESTYLE that we're working towards.
((hugs)) to all.
