5 Effective Fat Burning Training Tips

Effective workouts are the key to fat loss and weight loss success. You can burn fat, lose weight and tone your body without doing long, boring 2-3 hour workouts!


Don't fall for the many weight loss gimmicks coming your way. Makers of weight loss pills, fat burn supplements and quick weight loss plans continue to get rich because people "buy in" and buy the products!

As a personal trainer, I know that it doesn't take 300-400 repetitions and 2 hour workouts to reach your fitness goals, whether its fat loss/weight loss or muscle growth/weight gain.

It takes you having a fitness program tailored to your individual needs. And, in any case, you can accomplish your goals with 4-5, one hour (or less) training sessions per week. Over-training will leave you broken down and injured.

Injury risks like torn anterior cruciate knee ligaments, achilles tendon strains/tears and hamstring pulls can be lessened with proper training.

Here are 5 effective and proven fat burning training methods:

1. Tone your body better and faster with explosive strength training. This type of training will burn fat and tone your body like never before.

Lifting weights explosively is an advanced form of exercise and shouldn't be done by beginners or youngsters. Your body should have the needed stabilization and strength before beginning explosive lifts.

Especially at the start of the lift, explosive lifting can be done for exercises like bench press, push ups, leg press, shoulder press and calf raises.

2. Superset strength training burns fat better than traditional strength training. Pair two non-competing exercises such as bench press and dumbbell rows, completing each exercise back to back without rest. Another good pair to superset would be squats and standing shoulder press.

Supersets allow you to do more work because one muscle group can rest while you work the opposing muscle group.

3. Do interval cardio sessions instead of long cardio sessions. All it takes is 20 minutes of intervals on the treadmill, grass or stepmill. This method will burn more fat than doing 60-minute cardio sessions that wastes away your muscle mass.

4. Circuit bodyweight cardio sessions are very effective fat-burners. Combine 4-5 bodyweight strength exercises, 8-10 repetitions each. Do this circuit 2-3 times and the fat will burn off your body.

5. Jumping exercises really burn the fat and tone your body, especially if done at full speed. Squat jumps, pike jumps, side-to-side hops, front-to-back hops, jump rope, jumping jacks and box jumps will all get the job done. Its important to learn proper jumping and landing techniques to avoid injuries.

Lose as little water weight as possible so your body will burn more body fat. These two steps will help you do this:

a. Eat small meals of whole, natural foods every 3-4 hours. Also, eat protein with every meal. Protein will help you feel full for a longer period and help repair and rebuild your muscles.

b. Exercise regularly with strength training and short interval cardio sessions. Rotate light and heavy lifting days (2 heavy, 1 light). And, 2-3 days of interval cardio is enough.

Don't become frustrated when one week you lose 6 pounds and the next week you lose no pounds. Muscle weighs more than fat. Check your body fat percentage.

You could be burning fat, building muscle and losing inches. Your body shrinks (becomes leaner) because muscle takes up less space than fat. You will lose the weight at the right time.

Be patient and eat right, build muscle, burn the fat and lose the weight. This process will give you a lean, healthy body.

  1. To me, the only way towards permanent weight loss is through education. Most programs only concentrate on the diets and exercises and don't even educate their clients on how the body works. It is important to know how to feed, care and exercise your body so it performs at its best all the time. Education is the hall-mark of a good weight loss program that offers good results.

    I've personally lost 180lbs since Dec 2009. My blood pressure was 160/110, now its 120/80. My cholesterol was 256 mg/dL, now its 176mg/dL. I'm no longer Pre-Diabetic and I'm in the best shape of my life. It wasn't easy but I can say that everyone can do it if they have the right program.

  2. These are great tips. I have recently started doing a bodyweight training program and when I chain the exercises together it gets my heart rate going like crazy.

    Before I was doing weightlifting and found it difficult to do back to back exercises and make progress since I felt weak on the next exercise. The bodyweight routine feels better and is less stressful on my joints.
