Jump Start Weight Loss With The LISS Workout
Burnt out on pushing your limit with high intensity workouts? Balance out your routine with a LISS workout. LISS, low intensity sustained state, is any cardio workout that can be sustained for a prolonged period of time, typically 30-60 minutes. Although high intensity interval training, or HIIT, does encourage weight loss while toning muscle, LISS trains your body for longevity and feeds the body the oxygen need to burn fat.
Not only is LISS easy, but it’s the easiest workout to rev up metabolism to lose weight. What’s better than that?
The LISS workout is not a new phenomenon. It was popular among bodybuilders in the 70’s and was used as a way to shed fat and expose more lean muscle.
Easy LISS workouts
Going for a brisk walk on a treadmill or outside, swimming, or even taking a leisurely bike ride for an hour twice a week can yield noticeable results. Add to the list hiking, rowing, and the elliptical trainer.
If you’re used to doing more high intensity training, a LISS workout is the perfect balance to calm and regenerate the muscles.
