After college I lost sight of my hopes and dreams. I had gotten in the worst shape of my entire life. Well that all has changed and being a fitness expert, I have found some great exercises that work better for quick, effective workouts. People are always asking me how do I lose stomach fat and what exercises can help me lose fat.
The best exercises are full body exercises. The exercises that help lose fat are the best for helping someone gain muscle as well. These exercises all have one thing in common: They work many muscles of the body and they work the biggest muscles of the body.
Research and real world experience dictate that these exercises burn more fat and have the greatest impact on the body. Taking this a step further….
Let’s drastically increase results by selecting TOTAL BODY EXERCISES within each TOTAL BODY WORKOUT! For example the squat has been known as one of the best exercises. However, the squat becomes UNSTOPPABLE for transforming the body when you add in another movement such as a press or row. More movement means more calories burned in less time.
It’s as simple as the Dream Body Equation below:
Performing Total Body Exercises Within Each Total Body Workout
More Muscles Recruitment =
Greater Caloric Expenditure + More Muscle Work =
More Fat Loss + Greater Lean Muscle Tissue
These exercises create a love/hate relationship. Love because of the awesome fat burning/muscle building results they provide to create a lean healthy body. Hate because they are challenging creating a pool of sweat in a short amount of time. Trust me these workouts are not for the treadmill walkers.
Here is the top 10 list of “Fat Blasting” exercises:
Exercise#1- Step up curl or press
Exercise#2- Kettlebell swings, cleans, and Jumps
Exercise#3- Lunge variations with another movement. Examples would be reverse lunge with a curl, lunge with med ball press, and reverse lunge with a row.
Exercise#4- Plyometric push up, push up into a burbee and so on.
Exercise#5- The Chop- Dumbbells, Kettlebells, Med Balls, Bands, or Sandbags
Exercise#6- Olympic Lifting Variations: Dumbbell or Kettlebell Cleans, Snatches, High Pulls
Exercise#7- Jump variations with or without weight such as tuck jumps, squat jumps, and lunge jumps.
Exercise#8- Med ball shuffle slams, med ball jump slams, and med ball explosive drills of any kind
Exercise#9- Weighted punches with jumps or burbees.
Exercise#10- sprints with periods of push ups, squat jumps, or any other exercise above.
I hope you take my advice and focus on intensity over time. I hope you use these exercises to your advantage and focus on quick, effective workouts. Results in less time are what you want. You want to bust through your plateau and create a lean, fit body.
I’ll be sharing some more great exercises for those specific trouble spot areas (e.g. legs, butt, abs, chest, arms, etc.) that are holding you back from “blasting fat” in the days to come
