Weight Training fat-burning tip

Here’s a little known, but super important fact that will flatten that belly. After every weight training workout, don’t just dry off and head home. Whenever you pump iron, you release fatty acids. You want to do 30 minutes of light cardio right after weight training to flush those fatty acids out of your system, or you can incorporate cardio in with the weight training. You don’t want the fatty acids to go back into your cells, which keep you fat.

For your light cardio after weight-training workout, you want your heart beats per minute (BPM) to be between 110 and 130. You can buy a heart rate monitor at your nearest fitness center or you can just calculate your BPM yourself. To determine your BPM, take your left index finger and middle finger and place them on your right wrist where you feel a pulse. Count how many pulses there are in 15 seconds and multiply that by 4. Ex: 32 x 4 = 128.

I wish someone had told me this fat-burning tip years ago!
