What's the Best Way To Start Running For Fat Loss?

 

Here are some tips on how to get started with running for fat loss.

  • Start by doing some low intensity interval running. Run the distance between two telephone poles then walk to the next one, run to the next, walk the next, etc.
  • This type of interval training can also be done using time intervals, e.g. run for 3 minutes, walk for 1 minute.
  • Begin with a fairly short distance. Don't try and do a marathon all at once because then you'll be too sore to do it again.
  • Do this for the first few sessions until you get your lungs and legs used to running then gradually phase out the walking.
  • When you can run a slow, steady pace for about 15 minutes straight, then you can start increasing the distance you are running each session. Increase gradually.
  • I would start off with 2 or 3 sessions a week, making sure you have at least one day off in between.
  • Also, make sure you have a good pair of running shoes. It can make a huge difference.
