Burning Fat With Bodyweight Training

Burning Fat With Bodyweight Training And Weight Loss Pills.

People who want to burn fat and lose weight will often mistakenly assume that they can’t really achieve that using weights or bodyweight training. This is why you’ll find that the majority of weight loss programs tend to revolve around cardio and aerobic exercises such as running, cycling or skipping rope.

Don’t get me wrong – this is an effective way to burn fat. It’s just that bodyweight training is better. Trust me!
There are many reasons for this. The first is that bodyweight training when performed in the right way actually involves more energy than running. That’s because you can use all of your limbs.

Try performing burpees for 30 seconds and then see how you feel! It’s just as energetic as running and you’re burning just as many calories. And contracting at the same time only makes this even more insanely tough – this is what’s known as ‘resistance cardio’ and it’s one of the very best ways to burn fat quickly.

At the same time, performing things like burpees is also using a lot of muscle. You’ll be using all your leg muscles, your triceps, your pecs, your shoulders… and when you do this, you trigger the release of growth hormone and testosterone. These are anabolic hormones that cause you to build muscle and burn more fat.

And what’s more, is that simply having more muscle will also help you to burn more fat. If you have big biceps and pecs then your body needs to fuel them and that means that you’ll burn through lots more calories even while you’re sleeping!

There’s also the fact that toning muscle at the same time as burning fat leads to a much better physique. A lot of people want to get rid of cellulite for instance. Guess what? The best way to get rid of cellulite is not to burn fat but rather to build muscle underneath and thereby tone up the flesh and make everything look smoother.

Toning muscle also gives you all the proportions you want. If you’re a woman, then type in ‘girls who squat’ at Google Images. You’ll see that women who squat are famous for having great buttocks. You can do the exact same thing with tuck jumps but you’ll be burning more fat at the same time!
