Losing body fat and keeping it off long term requires more than just tough metabolic process taxing workouts (fat burning workouts). I’ve found that a very important component in fitness and the fat loss process is active rest. For those of you that have done the 12 Day Fat X Program, you know that day 9 features an active rest activity. Active rest is a lower intensity activity or workout that’s less intense, but longer in duration. There’s many benefits to active rest. Hiking is one of my favorite active rest activities and when I personally put someone through the Fat X Program, I take them on a hike on day 9 or workout 9. In this post, I’ll go over the benefits of active rest, and 3 important reasons why I like hiking and how it’s a great compliment to a fat burning workout plan.

So, in this article, I’ll publicly answer those two FAQ’s by giving 5 easy to implement fat burning tips.

Recovering properly is an important component in long term fat loss and fitness success. Let's get into the importance of blood flow, and, how you can recover better for enhanced fat loss results.
