When you want to lose weight, you need to get your body moving and increase your metabolism. There are certain workouts that help to burn more fat, helping you to reach your goals much faster. Here are some of the top fat-burning workouts.
Quick Power Walks
It is no surprise that walking is one of the best workouts when you are trying to lose weight, but there are a lot of different forms of walking. If you are taking more casual walks for longer periods of time, you will keep your body moving and burn calories, but not burn as much fat. If you want to burn more fat, you need to increase the intensity. Instead of an hour-long casual walk, try a fast, power walk but for about 20-30 minutes.
Do Weights Before Cardio
Another effective method for burning fat is to do at least a few minutes of weight lifting before you do cardio. It is good to mix the two types of workouts regularly, but even on days when your only mission is to do some cardio, you should still be doing some weight lifting. People have found that when they do at least 10-15 minutes of weight lifting before stepping on the treadmill or elliptical, they lost weight more quickly and toned up at the same time.
Try Circuit Training
If you are not familiar with both cardio and weight lifting, then circuit training might be for you. Many fitness centers offer this as a class, or an area of the gym where each machine in a circuit is timed. This will make it a lot easier for you to do, without worrying about machines to do and for how long. It is an easy way to burn more fat at the gym and use a good amount of the machines without needing a personal training to show you how it’s done.
Mix Up Your Workouts
This isn’t a specific type of workout, but rather a method of exercising. IF you want to burn more fat while losing weight, then you don’t want to do the same exact workout every single day. Instead, try mixing it up and adding in some yoga or pilates, going for a hike instead of using the treadmill, or trying a new activity that gets your body moving, such as jumping in an indoor trampoline park. When you work different muscles of your body and have a different level of intensity, you start to burn more fat.
