!b>Fat Burning Workouts
Fat burning workouts are no longer all about long, slow boring cardio and high-repetition, light weight resistance training sessions. In fact, if you are doing either of these workout techniques for fat loss, you are completely wasting your time.
Long, slow, excruciatingly boring cardio workouts are ineffective for fat loss. At one gym where I trained, I would see the same woman come in the gym day-after-day and spend 30-45 minutes exercising on the elliptical machine hoping that she would burn fat. But in the 2 years I saw her, she didn't lose a pound!
Even researchers who have tried using slow cardio for fat burning workout studies have found that men and women don't lose much weight even when they do an hour of cardio per day. In one study, men and women did an hour of cardio exercise six days per week for one year and lost a measly 6 pounds of weight by the end. That's not a good fat burning workout!
I've also trained dozens of women who wasted so much time trying to lift light weights in hopes that this type of exercise would tone their arms and help them lose inches of fat. But that exercise program never worked! Plus, by using these ineffective workout routines, these women ended up tripling the amount of time they needed to be in the gym.
So what are the best fat burning workouts for men and women? After all, if slow cardio and light weights don't work for fat loss, then what will help you burn your belly fat?
The first thing you need to do is quit believing that longer fat burning workouts are better. You don't need to be in the gym for an hour or more every day for each workout. Instead, you can burn fat and lose inches by cutting back your fat burning workout program to only 3 days per week, 45 minutes per session. That's all you need to do.
In order to cut back on time, you simply need to increase your efforts. If you work a little harder, you can get a lot more fat loss results in less time. The perfect fat burning workout starts with a bodyweight warm-up, followed by fat blasting superset resistance training, and then finishes with weight loss intervals.
Some of those fat loss terms might seem a little new to you, so let me explain them in a little more detail. The bodyweight warm-up replaces the inefficient and ineffective treadmill warm-up done before most fat burning workouts. In place of the treadmill, you should be doing a circuit of easy bodyweight exercises, such as squats, pushups, and a unique exercise called "stick-ups". This is a better way to prepare your muscles for the fat burning exercises you'll do next.
You'll then replace your high-repetition, light-weight exercise technique with a better fat burning technique called "Non-competing supersets". In the Turbulence Training workouts, I'll show you how to pair two "non-competing" exercises in a superset, and you'll work harder than normal for a short amount of time to boost your metabolism and burn belly fat with resistance training. That's right, you can burn fat with strength training!
Each fat burning workout finishes with interval training in place of cardio exercise. Interval training has been shown in research studies to burn more belly fat in less workout time than slow, boring cardio exercise. So don't waste your time doing the elliptical machine at an easy pace. Instead, you should use interval training - periods of hard exercise paired with periods of easy exercise. You'll be shocked at how you can burn fat in less workout time with interval training.
The best fat burning workouts are from Turbulence Training. These workouts don't waste any time, and help you lose inches and burn fat - even in the comfort of your own home. So not only will you cut your workout time, but you don't need to drive to the gym either. Fast fat burning workouts using resistance training supersets and interval training are the proven way to lose weight and burn fat.
