Burning body fat can be as complicated or as simple as you make it.
With all the different programs, methods and contradictory information that is now available to people, it’s very easy to get overwhelmed and confused with what to do and how to approach your trainig.
This can also cause you to program hop as you enthusiastically start a program, then you come across another fat-loss program which obviously must be better because it’s not the one you are doing, then your friend tells you about the program they are doing so you decide to try that. No-one ever got anywhere following that approach.
Here are 2 great methods of training that:
- are great for burning unwanted body fat
- are very challenging
- Can provide you with endless variety
- Don’t need to take very long to do
- Can be done with minimal equipment
- Can be done with very little space
- are super fun to do
With either of these methods it’s very important to structure them properly. As an example, if you do 2 very grip-intensive exercises back to back your grip will give out long before the big muscles that you should be targeting do. This means you end up burning less fat than you should.
Pairings such as a push and a pull aswell as an upper body and lower body pairing (our favourite) work really well. You also need to avoid getting too fatigued at the start of the sessions as your technique will quickly break down and you’ll risk hurting yourself due to sloppy technique.
Remember, for effective and optimal fat loss (or any other goal), your nutrition and lifestyle habits must be supporting the goals that you are trying to achieve. If they aren’t then don’t expect to see any real results. Through our blogs and educational videos, we hope our readers have been educated enough to understand and accept this.
Before you attempt any of these methods, you must know how to do the exercises safely and effectively first. Invest in hiring a great coach and you’ll progress at a much faster pace.
METHOD 1- COMPLEXES
The great thing about complexes is that you only need 1 piece of equipment and you can basically use anything:
- Rings or TRX
You basically do a circuit of different exercises without putting the weight down. When you complete each of the exercises for the required number of reps/time you move onto the next exercise without resting. Once you finish all the exercise in your circuit you rest and then go back in and complete another complex/circuit of exercises.
METHOD 2- DENSITY TRAINING
Again, this method is fairly simple. Set a clock for a specific amount of time (eg. 12 minutes) and pick a few big exercises for a set amount of reps (eg. 10 eps each of push ups and kettlebell swings).
Complete as many rounds of each exercise in the set amount of time and try to beat that amount the next time you do the session even if it’s only by 1 single rep. You’ll have done more work in the same amount of time which is more challenging to your body than the last time you done it.
As an example, if you do a 60 total reps in your first session, aim to do at least 61 in your second session, then 62 in your next one and so on.
