What is fat deposits in the body?

What you eat, the body spends on the activity – for movement, for the work of the organs for the synthesis and recovery of body cells.

When excess food, when you eat more than you need, all the excess is converted into fat and deposited in the reserve. Body fat is “batteries” of the body which accumulates energy.

In modern life, people often violate the balance of nature – eating too much and totally wrong, when it moves very little, so grow fat and lead to health problems.

But fats can be spent on physical activity !

If to move a lot and waste a lot of energy, the body will be forced to “print” its reserves and will begin to consume fats.

What is the benefit of running for obesity:

  • While running, you move your body weight, that’s a pretty big weights.
  • The work includes almost all the muscles of the body, and every muscle consumes energy.

How to run for weight loss

Your goal is to learn to run long!

100 meters of running at high speed is a great power exercise muscles, but for weight loss it is inefficient.

To spend a lot of fat, you need a long, easy run!

The body uses energy always fat, even when you are sleeping, but during exercise the consumption of fat increases many times. However, the speed of fat burning increases slowly, the body needs time to enhance this reaction.

About 5 minutes after the start of running, the body significantly increases the use of fats, and the longer the load, the more is spent fats. After about 20 minutes of easy running fat burning out at a very high level.

Fats are spent only with providing the body with oxygen, so it is recommended to run at a moderate speed.

If you are suffocating and you need air, then you are running too fast.

Lack of oxygen causes the body reduces or stops the use of fats.

Moreover, at high speed you will not be able to run long enough, so will not be able to do much work to spend a lot of fat.

Running needs to be light and long:

Light – that the muscles have enough oxygen to burn fat and so you can run for a long time.

Long – so you can do a lot of work and spend more fat.

In addition, under such loads is a significant increase in ability of the body to use fats at all ! The body “learns” to use fat active resources, vigorously develop the capillary network and improves metabolism.

How to run to lose weight?

Each person will have their own speed depending on the preparation.

While running, you will feel that there is a speed at which you can run for a very long time.

This is the rate at which fats are burned efficiently.

If you run correctly, you will feel:

  • Pulse quick, but not “crazy”, breathing, active and strong, but you are suffocating, and the air is enough, the muscles do their work, but there is growing fatigue, they can continue for a long time…
  • Whole body works as a single mechanism, precise rhythmic footwork measures distance, taking small steps, breathing is consistent with the footwork, you are calm and can even forget that you are running. By the way, there is a kind of meditation during a monotonous run.
  • Also, you will find the “threshold speed”, exceeding the which you start to get tired quickly.
  • How is exceeding the threshold speed:
  • Breath sharply increases, you breathe harder and deeper, but you still can’t breathe, you start to suffocate, muscle fatigue increases rapidly, you feel that you have to exert more effort to keep this speed, the run becomes gradually hard for you.
  • Your task is to run without exceeding the threshold speed and to stay away from him, then you will be able to run very long.
  • If you feel that breathing is not enough, or in the muscles increases fatigue, reduce your speed.
  • With the development of abilities of the body, your speed of easy running will increase and the threshold at which the choke you will move on.

Listen carefully to your body and it will tell you the running speed.
