 Fat Blasting Step Mill Interval Workout

High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is ideal for FAT LOSS.  The basic goal of interval training is to achieve a high heart rate in the zone of 80 to 95 percent of your estimated max heart rate for a short duration of time (from 10 seconds to three minutes). For this workout, use a rate of perceived exertion (RPE) scale of 1 to 10 to designate exercise intensity, with 1 being zero effort/resting heart rate and 10 being all out max effort, equivalent to about 95 percent of your estimated max heart rate. As a reference point, moderate cardio is usually done at an RPE of 5 to 6. Complete workout available on printed newsletter.

Have You Tried A TABATA Class?

Getting a full-body workout in this high-intensity class has made Tabata-style training appealing for fat loss. These workouts feature a format of eight cycles of 20 sec. of high-intensity work followed by 10 sec. of rest. This style of class can elevate your baseline metabolic rate (the amount of calories YOUR body needs daily to function) after exercise resulting in greater fat loss. At higher intensity, more of the energy for exercise comes from carbohydrate. At rest, the majority of the energy needs come from fat. Try the outdoor class with Austin. See schedule for class times.

Chickpea Burgers & Tahini Sauce

Rather than a heavy, fried falafel, here's an updated version of this pocket sandwich: a light chickpea patty served in a whole-wheat pita with a flavorful but light tahini sauce.

Ingredients: 1 19-ounce c chickpeas, rinsed, 4 scallions, trimmed and sliced, 1 egg, 2 tablespoon all-purpose flour, 1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano, 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, 2 6-1/2-inch whole-wheat pitas, halved and warmed, if desired, 1/2 cup low-fat plain yogurt, 2 tablespoon tahini, (see Ingredient note), 1 tablespoon lemon juice, 1/3 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley

Cooking Directions: Step 1: To prepare burgers: Place chickpeas, scallions, egg, flour, oregano, cumin and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a food processor. Pulse, stopping once or twice to scrape down the sides, until a coarse mixture forms that holds together when pressed. (The mixture will be moist.) Form into 4 patties. Step 2: Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add patties and cook until golden and beginning to crisp, 4 to 5 minutes. Carefully flip and cook until golden brown, 2 to 4 minutes more.
