As a bonus to these stretches, we would like to impart some extra wisdom related to fat burning. When performing fat-burning stretches or exercise, the energy does not come only from the fat deposits of the body but also from the proteins and carbohydrates one consumes on a daily basis. During the high-intensity exercises, the body receives energy from the consumed carbohydrates and for slow exercises; it receives energy from the fat of the body. What we want to tell in simple words is that pacing is a beneficial thing to do in exercising. It is not only convenient for a person to do but also helps them manage their weight in long term.
