Improve Weight Loss with Bodyweight Strength Training

If you want to burn fat and lose weight at a faster rate, try metabolic bodyweight strength training.

You will burn fat sooner and get in peak condition. You will make improvements in resting heart rate, strength, muscle mass, cardiac output and blood volume. Your body fat will definitely decrease at a faster rate.

Here’s what the research says:

a) Doing these types of short burst workouts will change your hormones allowing your body to naturally regulate fat burning, appetite and moods.

Short burst workouts, such as interval cardio and circuit weight training had these advantages over the low-to-moderate intensity workouts: a) more release of fat from cells, b) more fat used as fuel during exercise and c) increased metabolic rate after exercise. All it takes is 20-30 minutes of workout time.

b) Doing this type of exercise will burn more calories and fat during and after your workout. Exercise Post-Oxygen Consumption (EPOC) causes your body to burn more calories and fat after a tough workout.

Your body has to work harder to get back to its pre-exercise state. Fat burning and metabolism can increase for up to 48 hours after your metabolic workout!

c) Long, traditional 1-2 hour workouts can have a negative impact on hunger and stress hormones which can cause increased appetite and cravings for sugary and other fatty foods.

Metabolic training is an advanced form of high intensity exercise (strength circuits and interval cardio circuits). Metabolic training is a popular and effective method for sports teams.

If you play on a rec league basketball, soccer or flag football team, metabolic training would be ideal. You would also lessen your chances of injury. Many weekend warriors get hurt because they aren't in condition to play a sport at full speed.

If you play in a flag football league, your metabolic training could be set up to mirror the passing plays found in a 4 quarter game. Sprints, shuttles, jogging and rest periods could be used to metabolically train your body. The goal is for you to be physically fit to play your sport without injury.

As for metabolic resistance training, you want your strength circuits to be set up to last no more than 30 minutes. High intensity-type exercises are ideal for metabolic resistance training.

Choose exercises that help you live and play the way you, exercises like squat jumps, lunges, step ups, sprints, shuttles, jump rope, pushups, rows and presses all work.

Start burning more fat and transforming your body.
