There are two ways to work out and NOT see results. One is obvious: not working out hard enough. But the other is working out TOO HARD. That’s right, working out too hard puts undue stress on your heart and actually burns fat less effectively.
Think of your heart like a car engine. Car engines are most efficient around 55 mph. That’s where you get your best mileage. Your heart is no different. Everyone has an ideal “FAT BURNING ZONE,” and when you’re in your zone, you’re burning fat most efficiently.
Wearing a heart rate monitor ensures that you get in your zone and stay there by working out hard enough but not TOO HARD.
