3 Ways To Burn Fat & Boost Your Metabolism At Home


homeworkoutAre you burning fat at the rate you want?

If the answer is no, then you need to focus on cranking up your metabolism.

This can be done from the comfort of your own home.

So, if you want to use a resistance training program to lose weight, there are a few things to keep in mind. These things will ensure that you burn the maximum amount of fat possible.

Let’s take a look at some key things to remember:

Consider A Circuit Approach

The first thing to think about is structuring your program so that it’s a circuit training set-up.  Circuit training is going to have you moving from one exercise to the next, as quickly as possible, with hardly any rest periods in between.

Because of this, it tends to produce the absolute best metabolic boosts possible, causing you to burn off calories at an accelerated pace for the hours post training.  In fact, you can burn calories for up to 24 hours after an intense training session.

If you want to increase post-exercise calorie burn; aka the “after-burn” effect, circuit training is an effective way.  Just be sure to challenge yourself and lift heavy enough weights to keep resistance up for high intensity and maximum results.

Cardio Intervals

Next, you need to add intervals of cardio 
if you aren’t going to implement circuit training into your resistance training.

Place short bouts of cardio in between sets when you’d typically be resting.  This will keep your heart rate higher throughout the workout and allow you to ‘kill two birds with one stone’, avoiding long, boring and repetitious cardio training afterwards.

Here are some of the best exercises and combined movements for your circuit training program:

-mountain climbers
-jumping jacks
-jump squats
-box jumps

Don’t Forget About Your Diet

Lastly, but most importantly, do not forget about your diet.

Diet is one of the most crucial things, and you’ll need to be disciplined if you want to endure lasting success in health and fitness. Many people think that they can just exercise their way to fat loss, however, you’re in for a rude awakening if you don’t balance your life with a healthier diet.

If you aren’t making better choices in the kitchen, it’s going to be very difficult to accomplish health and wellness.  Once you get going, don’t look back; because once you get there, you’ll wonder why you waited so long.

Always make sure you are aware of what you’re eating throughout the day, if you’re conscious of it you can control it. Crash diets are a no-no and can cause more harm than good. Remember that the goal is long term success and sustainability.
