We all want to burn body fat and let our lean and toned bodies flourish. With summer coming fast, everyone wants to look great in shorts, bikinis and skirts! You have time to get it done but, you may have to change your training methods.
Its not enough to just exercise every day. You MUST do the right kind of exercise to get the fat-burning results you want. Exercise is not rocket science but it's more than gym science.
Here are some proven fat-burning methods to choose from:
1. Tone your body better and faster with explosive strength training. This type of training will burn fat like crazy 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. You pair two non-competing exercises such as bench press and dumbbell rows, completing each exercise back to back without rest.
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.
6. Doing a second workout during the day (even a short one) keeps growth hormone levels high throughout the day. This will give you even more fat burning.
