Fastest Fat Loss Workout

What is the fastest fat loss workout? While there is no specific workout on the internet that will guarantee to be the best workout, on the other hand there's no saying that you can't create your own fat loss workout. This all comes down to your metabolism. Exercise science proves that the most fat we burn all comes to your resting metabolic rate, or your B.M.R. This means you are burning fat when you aren't exercising. So how do you increase your metabolic rate to turn yourself into a fat loss machine? With the 2 types of training that should be included in every fat loss workout to sky-rocket your B.M.R; Resistance Training and Interval Training.

Interval Training

When most people think of losing weight their first thought is always long boring hours on the treadmill. We all know that doing cardio is great for your health and fitness, but is it really the best answer for fat loss? You see while running on the treadmill at a steady pace for example is burning calories which means you are still going to be burning fat but its not helping your metabolism.

This is where interval training comes in, also known as H.I.I.T (high intensity interval training). H.I.I.T is running (whichever type of cardio you choose) at different intervals and speeds, an example of this is a 30:90 ratio. What 30:90 means is that instead of running at the same pace for 30 minutes, what you will be doing is running at a very high intensity for 30 seconds and then resting (walking or a slow jog) for 90 seconds. You then repeat this for 30 minutes. What interval training does is not only burn more fat during the workout but also keep your metabolic rate elevated for a significant length of time after the workout, therefore burning more fat for longer.

Resistance Training

M.R.T or metabolic resistance training is a workout that involves weight training. Although very different to the traditional style of weight training known as strength training. M.R.T involves lighter and faster weight training and shorter rest periods, which is going to create what we call a "disturbance in your metabolic rate". A metabolic disturbance can typically lead to an elevated metabolic rate for up to the next 2 days after your workout to help burn more fat. An example of M.R.T would be to incorporate super-sets into your workouts or even create a circuit which is going to keep the workout fast-paced therefore creating a cardiovascular element to contribute to fat loss, while also helping to grow muscle.

Combining these 2 factors into your weekly workout split will enhance your metabolism and therefore help you to lose fat fast.

After you have altered your workout and begin to understand how your metabolism works the next step would be to create a healthy diet to follow to maximize results.
