According to the Sydney Morning Herald, researchers from the University of New South Wales, have spent the last decade looking for a way to obtain the maximum fat loss with the least amount of effort. Reportedly, by doing sprint training for 60 minutes a week, "burns the same amount of body fat in men as jogging for seven hours a week."
As part of the program, participants sprinted on an exercise bike for eight seconds, and raised their heart rate to between 80 per cent and 90 per cent of its maximum rate, followed by 12 seconds of slow peddling.
''In three 20 minute sessions a week, they're only working hard for eight minutes,'' he said.
Participants lost mainly visceral fat, adipose tissue which surrounds internal organs and is linked to cardiovascular disease risk, and reduced their waist circumference.
Previous studies revealed similar results for women, he said.
A control group of participants, who did no exercise, lost no weight during the study.
