Are You Working Aerobically?

Monitor your heart rate during your exercise. Take a ten-second count and multiply it by six. You are working aerobically if your pulse rate is above twenty four beats in ten seconds. You have to keep up that rate for fifteen minutes. Initially you should start with eight minutes and work your way up. By tuning yourself up in this way you are activating your brown fat to work for you twenty-four hours a day. You are also increasing the number of mitochondria two- or three-fold. This has the effect of increasing the number of ‘furnaces’ that can burn fat for you and do the work of maintaining your correct body weight — providing you keep it up.
