You are going to have to get your metabolic rate elevated in order to be successful at fat loss. The way to make this happen is to stop doing traditional aerobic exercises and begin a new program that features interval and resistance patterns. Right now there is no better way to burn fat than this way. If you want to know what resistance training and intervals are, you’ve come to the right place. This combination workout is designed to help you build muscle and burn fat all at the same time, so you get a great body faster. These are fast workouts that let you stay out of the gym rather than spend hours there on the cardio gear.
You shouldn’t do traditional, slow cardiovascular work because it has been scientifically proven to be ineffective for weight loss. That’s why so many people spend more and more time doing it, trying to get some results. There are a lot of reasons for this and I’ve written about many of them. Another thing about combining cardiovascular sessions with intervals is that you get done in less time. Granted, you have to be very intense, but at least you get to reclaim a good portion of your life from the fitness center.
Then again, with traditional cardiovascular routines it’s hard to get you arms and abdominals trimmed and ripped in that mode. Strengthening and interval work will get the entire body involved, giving you a sexy, god/goddess-like body. The kind of session I speak of starts off doing five minutes of body-mass warmups. This is followed by a full twenty minute series with strengthening moves with either your body’s weight or with dumb bells.
You can use bar-bells at times, but since many of the people I work with train at home, the dumb bell is the choice weight.
