The most important thing with exercise is that you do it! Any bit of exercise is helpful. Park your car at the end of the parking lot. Take the stairs instead of the elevator. Walk your dog often -it’s good for both of you and he’ll love you for it! But, for the fastest way to lose weight, mix your exercises up with speed intervals when you work out. You don’t need to work out for hours to get fast results. Step up your intensity and you’ll burn the same number of calories or more in less time. People who incorporate sprints into their cardio workouts lose three times as much body fat!
Bursts of speed may stimulate a fat-burning response within the muscle. Whether you jog, bike or row, ramp things up to rev up your burn. You can start by doing 3-10 second all-out sprints with 10 seconds of a slower pace in between. Work your way up until you can do 30 minutes. A great place to get a sprint cardio work out is the track. Walk at least once around the track to warm up, then sprint hard for 200 meters, and walk for 200 meters, and repeat at least 8 times. Follow up with good old-fashioned callisthenics: push-ups, lunges, step-ups and sit-ups. You will see results in record time.
Strength Training. Whats the fastest way to lose inches? Slow down your strength training. Count to three when you lower the weight down to the start position. Slowing repetitions down increases the breakdown of muscle tissue. The repair of the muscle’s breakdown pumps up your metabolism for as long as 72 hours after your session. Use weights that challenge you -especially near the end of the reps. Many times, even if the scale remains the same, your measurements will be smaller when you incorporate weights into your workouts. You will also burn fat much quicker because your muscles will be burning the fat hours after you are finished working out! Now that makes it all worth it!
Omega oils. Fish-oil supplements increases the activity of your fat-burning enzymes. You need at least 800 milligrams of the fatty acid EPA and 200 milligrams of the fatty acid DHA per capsule. Take 2 of these capsules 2 hours before you work out to get the most of your workout for the fastest way to lose weight.

Myths, fantasies and magic don’t just exist in our imagination, but in abstract art as well. When these fantasies are translated to abstract art, then it is known as fantasy abstract art. This is a well known form of art that depicts all kinds of stories, magical legends, myths and dreams. Artists depict their own versions of fairy tales, fantastic beasts, Gods and much more in fantasy abstract art. Most of these art works are inspired from legends and myths across the world. Folklore from China, traditions of Africa and legends of Greece are some of the well known themes used by the artists in this genre. Needless to say, this form of art is entirely dependent on the artist’s mind, dreams and imagination. Moreover, the interpretation of such works of art is mainly dependent on the imagination of the viewer or to put it more appropriately “fantasy lies in the eyes of the beholder”.
Fantasy abstracts are generally painted on canvas using oil paints. This makes the work look more realistic and attractive. In the 16th century, Heironymous Bosch, a well known Dutch artist was instrumental in making fantasy art popular. As years passed by and man discovered photography, art gained new and versatile forms. Artists began departing from the conventional genre making way for expressionism, cubism and abstract art. Mystical forms were imbibed with new forms of art. This lead to the birth of surrealism.
These days apart from the traditional demons, angels and other forms of fantasy drawings, newer versions of fantasy abstract art are being developed. These include aliens, fairies, dark beings, vampires and characters from sci-fi stories. This form of abstract art is perhaps one of the most loved genres and is slowly finding popularity with the masses probably due to the air of mystery that surrounds them.
