1. Lightweight exercise for long periods is best
Doing cardio in a long time effective to burn fat. Many people do this method - especially those who have a lot of time on weekends.
> Mistake: But, the intensity of light exercise is less effective to spur burning of fat in the body. In addition, cardio exercise in the long term it will drain the energy you need if you want to do weight training afterwards. After all, for a busy man like you, this takes up too much time.

2. Consume energy bars or energy drinks before exercise
Energy bars or energy drinks are designed for athletes who need energy during the race. This type of food and drink contains high sugar and fat to supply ready-made energy into the body so it can perform high intensity activities.
> Mistake: If you belong to the gym rat category, the kind of person who every day is in the gym, may just eat that type of food. But, if you are still a beginner or weekend athlete - just exercise every weekend - then the type of food is too excessive and will only accumulate calories in the body.
> Correction: Choose a low-calorie snack about an hour before exercise, such as apples or half a cup of low-fat yogurt or cottage cheese. The minimal calories from the pralmedic snacks will burn quickly for 20 to 30 minutes from cardio session to high intensity sessions.

Indeed, this is an effective way to burn fat, with cardio exercises done in moderate intensity such as jogging, brisk walking, and more.
> Mistake: If you practice using the HIIT method, it is strongly recommended that you eat before exercise because your body needs fuel to do high intensity exercises.
> Correction: Consume complex carbohydrates such as brown rice, oats, oatmeal, and others, 30-60 minutes before exercise, as a source of energy that can be released gradually.

4. The more sweat, the more effective
Many men exercise wearing jackets or parachute sweaters to sweat more. The presumption: more sweating means more calories burned.
> Error: The presumption is incorrect. The amount of sweat that comes out of the body will actually make you dehydrated.
> Correction: The safest and most effective workout device is by wearing loose clothing - shorts, t-shirts, and sneakers - at a comfortable temperature, ideally 25 ° C. Do high intensity cardio, at least 20 minutes, then you will get an efficient way of burning calories and fat at once.

5. Enough with cardio
Many men think that just by doing cardio exercises alone their weight will drop dramatically, regardless of other factors, such as diet and adequate rest.
> Error: Wrong! The body's metabolism requires three main ingredients: healthy food as fuel, a break that gives the body time to regenerate, and body activity to burn excess fat.
> Correction: To get the best benefits from cardio workout, you need to balance the following 3 things: a healthy diet, adequate sleep, and regular exercise.
