The Best Workouts To Burn Fat!
Although your diet is number one when it comes to whether you will lose or gain weight, by following certain exercise protocols, you will be able to burn fat more efficiently.
Here are some tips:
1️⃣ Strategize your workout plan by combining exercises.
By choosing to complete exercises back to back that are of DIFFERENT muscles (ex quads and back), your body has to make the switch quick and get blood flowing from one part of the body to the other. Having to move blood from one part of the body to another requires work which not only keeps your heart rate up but it will be very beneficial for your metabolism.
2️⃣ Add daily walks!
Of course you expend more energy and calories doing an intense HIIT cardio session but if you are in a caloric deficit and already training at high intensities, your body is already under a lot of stress. Doing TOO much isn’t always the best option as this is most likely going to produce excess cortisol. Walking is considered to be easy on the joints, and since walking is a parsympathetic activity, it will actually help you to relax and de stress.
3️⃣ Include EMOM workouts! (every minute on the minute)
You will pair an upper body movement with a lower body movement. Every minute begins a new set. On odd minutes, you will do one exercise and on the even minutes you will do another exercise. For an example:
START your stop watch & perform 4 reps deadlifts
At minute 1 – 4 reps OH shoulder press
At minute 2 – 4 reps deadlift
At minute 3 – 4 reps OH shoulder press
Any type of movement is better than no movement at all but if your goal is to maintain your muscle mass while losing fat.
