Is boot camp fitness an efficient method to lose weight? When you think about it, the soldiers sweating and grunting while jumping and sprinting under the command of a drill sergeant get in shape. The purpose is not to measure their resistance to torturous exercises; it’s to get fit, gain strength and endurance to be able to combat and survive.
Boot camp fitness inspires from this military physical training. The concept lies in interval workouts: intense activity that increases your heart rate for a couple of minutes followed by a slower paced exercise.
The weight loss rate through boot camp fitness is higher than with typical gym routines because you burn more calories and more fat in a shorter amount of time. Calories and fat are the fuel to sustain the exercises: by working harder, your body needs to tap into the fat stores so the heart and muscles can keep up.
The efficiency is accrued by the fact that the muscles work by themselves: no machine to support your body. You engage your core muscles to maintain balance: more calories to burn there as well.
Does it have to be intense to gain weight loss?
Yes. That’s the whole point. Boot camp fitness should not, however, be impossible. Start with an intensity that you feel can build your strength and endurance and gradually increase the level of effort.
Does it become easier? It gets easier as you progress, but you should always feel the challenge. If your body starts to expect a routine, it will not engage as much, therefore burn less calories and fat. The workouts should always be different to keep the muscles from getting comfortable.
Achieving weight loss by training like a soldier is neither possible nor efficient if you don’t adopt the appropriate diet. When you choose a boot camp program, make sure the trainer offers nutrition coaching.
