Fat Loss Workout

If you want fat loss, your workouts need to be intense enough to burn fat. It is that simple. To do this, you might need to make some changes to your workout program!



If you are taking 5 minutes between exercise sets (talking to friends), that probably won't get the job done. If you have a workout partner who is not serious about working out hard, find another workout partner. Work harder for a shorter period of time and you'll burn more fat and calories during and after your workout! An intense 30-40 minute workout will work just fine.

Do as many compound strength exercises (with weights or bodyweight) standing up as possible. These types of exercises work major muscle groups and many times are full-body strength exercises. Squats, deadlift, lunges, standing bentover rows, squat-to curl-to press and bench press are great examples. Full-body core exercises like planks and side planks work well also. Spend less time posing on "mirror exercises" like bicep curls, calf raises and tricep extensions.

Here is a good fat-burning workout:

Do each exercise one after the other with little or no rest between exercises. Rest 2-3 minutes between circuits. Do the circuit 3 times.

1. Bulgarian Split Squats (pictured above), 15 repetitions each leg
2. Ball Plank, 15 repetitions, 5 second hold
3. Pushups on Medicine Ball, 20 repetitions
4. Step Ups with Knee Lift (knee high platform), 10 repetitions each leg
5. Pullups, 10 repetitions
6. Walking Lunges, 10 repetitions each leg
7. Standing dumbbell shoulder press, 10 repetitions
8. Repeat circuit 2 more times.

This type of workout will help you break through your fat loss and weight loss plateau.
