TAKE A HIIT
Let’s face it most people going to the gym to burn fat are doing 30-60 minutes of steady state cardio or H.I.I.T. (High Intensity Interval Training) and maybe some weight training before or after the cardio session. This method works to a degree, as when you separate your “strength” and “cardio” training you do get the benefits of both forms of exercise individually. However you’re NOT getting into “Full Body Fat Incineration Mode” as you would be if you were able to combine the two disciplines strategically!
Therefore we have to go back to basics with a militant “boot camp” style training system where after a short cardio warm-up to increase heart rate and respiration prior to performing a variety of multi-joint, full body exercises to fully oxygenate the body and improve your fat burning potential. Here’s an example of how to break this down to hit all major muscle groups in the body, and remember take little to no rest between sets (20 seconds or less folks!)
10-Minute Cardio Warm Up & Cool-Down (Treadmill, Bike or Elliptical)
Then 1 Minute Each Per Exercise Rotating “Up & Down” Exercise Methodology:
- Jump Rope
- Push Ups
- Chin-Ups or Static Hangs
- Mountain Climbers
- Kettlebell Swings
- Hanging Leg Raises
You can repeat this cycle 2-3 times for an intense full body fat blasting workout that will also boost your metabolism for hours after the workout!
