How to Design A Weight Loss Workout Plan

You finally decided to start your weight loss journey, but you don't know which workout program or plan to choose? There are lots of workout plans on the market. So why you don't design your own weight loss workout plan? Here are some things to keep in mind when creating your own fat loss training plan.

The first thing you would want to add to your fat loss workout plan is cardio. You probably know the obvious truth: you have to burn more calories than you eat to lose weight. That's where cardio comes in handy. I know what people think when they hear the word cardio. The first thing that often comes in mind is long and boring run in the stadium, in the park or on the treadmill. That's not the cardio you want. You want your cardio to be definitely shorter and much more intensive than traditional cardio. I'm a big fan of intensity so it's much MUCH more beneficial to workout with intensity, because it works not just your aerobic but also your anaerobic system.

Make sure to include intensive short in time bursts of running and jumping. I'm also a fan of kickboxing style of workouts, 'cause various kicks (straight kicks, back kicks, side kicks, roundhouses) and punches (jabs, crosses, hooks, uppercuts) work your entire body, especially your core. I know you want to get rid of belly fat so include some kickboxing routines to you weight loss workout plan too.

Muscle burn fat, right? You've probably heard that phrase, so the second most important thing to do when designing your fat loss workout plan is to add proper resistance (weight) training. If you are a beginner, body weight is just enough. Choose exercises to tone your whole body, not just particular part, ex. abs. If you work just one or few muscles of your body, it starts to lose proportions. I'm sure you don't wanna have perfect hands and weak or skinny legs and otherwise. Just working your abs won't make you lose your weight. To be exact, not as much as you want. Also choose exercises that work your lower and upper body at the same time. Exercises that meet the criteria are squat with an overhead press, squat with an upside row, lunge with an overhead press, lunge with the core rotation, side lunge with a front row and etc. These exercises build lean muscle and only lean muscle burns fat. If you want to gain muscle mass, you have to eat more and that's what you don't wanna do. As I said, if you are a beginner, do more simple body weight exercises. Anyway, there are lots of ways to make even the most simple exercise the impossible one :)

This is the part not just important as the other two, but essential as well. It's stretch. Without the proper stretch you will be unable to have a productive workout and do some moves. Make sure to include some stretch exercises in your warm up as well as after your workout, because the best way to increase your flexibility is while your muscles are warm. Stretch every part of your body that you use most of the workout: shoulders, all leg muscles, back, core. That will lead you to more effective each time and every time.

The main things to keep in mind: include proper cardio, resistance training that tones your whole body and some stretching to improve your overall flexibility. Just remember: nutrition is foundation of weight loss, so first make your nutrition right if you want maximum weight loss. Lose weight, lose big and lose it together!
