But if the only view you care about improving is the one you get when you look at your waistline, you should start to cycle more indoors because joining a spinning class could be a shortcut to fat loss and better heart health. A study from the University of Wisconsin found that during a spin class participants regularly exceeded their maximum aerobic capacity for short periods, indicating they were pushing themselves outside of their comfort zone, making spinning one of the best forms of high-intensity interval session for burning body fat and improving cardiovascular fitness.

stay strong in the saddle

1 MAKE SURE YOU PREPARE Spin classes aren’t easy, which is why you need to make sure you are fully set before saddling up. “Ensure you have eaten enough so you don’t run out of energy during the class but give yourself enough time to digest it so that you don’t feel sick,” says cycling coach Paul Butler (pbcyclecoaching.co.uk). “I suggest you eat a meal three hours before and a piece of fruit an hour before, then sip water throughout the class.” 2 WARM UP EFFECTIVELY Most spin classes will include a warm-up at the start of the session, but some extra pre-class warm-up drills can help you get off to a flying start. “It’s important that you do some dynamic stretching, which is when you move your muscles quickly through a full…

get into the mood with a glass of red

A glass of wine is as good as certain fruits and vegetables in improving erectile function, and can even offer the same performance benefits as doing a one-hour brisk walk five times a week, according to research published in the American Journal Of Clinical Nutrition. That’s because red wine, berries (especially blueberries, blackberries and cherries) and citrus fruits are high in compounds called flavonoids and – according to the study of more than 50,000 men – those who regularly ate flavonoid-rich foods were 10% less likely to suffer erection problems. What’s more, those who also exercise frequently were 21% less likely to report any problems.…

6 zero-effort fat-loss hacks

1 Drink a pint before every meal Sorry – we mean of water, nothing else. Drinking half a litre or so of water is one of the simplest, easiest and most effective hacks you can start doing right now to start to strip away fat. Why it works Subjects on a calorie-controlled diet who drank 500ml of water half an hour before their three main daily meals lost 2kg more over 12 weeks than those who didn’t, according to the journal Obesity, because the water made them eat fewer calories at mealtimes. 2 Add some heat to your cooking You’ll need more water for this tip because adding chillies to your food will set your mouth on fire – but more significantly it’ll also prevent you from overeating, one of the biggest factors behind fat…
