If you ask a gym-goer out there what the best fat burning workout is, they might tell you it is through a series of isolated exercises, or rather, workout moves that only focus on one muscle at a time. However, this is not the case. It is through full-body, or compound exercises, that we are able to see the best results. So, without further ado, here are the ten best fat burning workouts you should be trying for more effective results.
Barbell Man Maker
The Man Maker normally involves the normal up-and-down form of a burpee plus a barbell press at the top of the movement. Once you can easily toss up the bar with a lot of ease add the Man Maker to your workout. To create the ultimate fat burning workouts do this exercise for about four sets of about 8 to 10 reps with a minute break in between.
If you think jumping rope is only meant for kids, then you are wrong. In fact, jumping rope is considered to be one of the basics in gym equipment that will offer you a full body fat burning workout. For a full range of benefits, try to increase your skipping speed while at the same time trying to incorporate different moves in between. This will elevate your heart rate which in turn increases the body’s need for energy. Do a warmup of about 10 to 15 mins to really get those fat stores burning.
This is normally considered to be one of the best ways to squat. By simply front-loading weight, this allows you to keep your torso more upright. This will in turn help carrying stress away from your spine and also work your thighs.
The Goblet squat is also preferable for those looking to pack in a lot of repetitions. The fact that the weight is held in front of the body makes the exercise desirable for beginners. This exercise is also easier than a barbell squat where the weight is positioned behind the body.
Med Ball Slam
If you’re having a bad day, Med ball Slams are your best workout. With this, you are not just burning body fat, but you are also able to clear away the stress, boredom, anger or any other emotion which might be bothering you. With this exercise, try to have full control of your body in making sure that every part is fully involved.
Barbell Muscle Snatch or The Dumbbell Muscle Snatch
This body workout is a modified version of the Barbell Snatch. It is normally performed from a hang position with a bar at the knee level or shin instead of doing it on the floor. This is aimed at decreasing the range of body motion and to bypass any potential mobility problems. This is all you need for a full extension of the ankles, hips, and knees and you will defiantly come to a full stand at the top of your move.
Box Squat Jump
These plyometric workouts are meant to stimulate your larger fast-twitch muscle fibers and burn stubborn body fat. With Box Squat Jumps, sitting down only between reps will help to clean up your landing mechanism and seem to prove easier on your knees. Based on your mobility and fitness level, you can easily adjust the height of the box based.
Step-up Jump is almost the same as the Squat Jump. This workout provides you with a lower-impact way to train your lower body and also in crushing calories at lightning speed.
Step-up Jumps tend to be more hip-dominant than lunges, so they seem fairly easier to your knees. Of interest to note is that excessive sitting might lead to “saggy butt syndrome” and so the more you kick that gluteus into gear the better.
Battle Rope Wave
This is one of the finest workouts which does not need excessive energy or a warm-up to be carried out. Battle rope wave is super easy on your lower body joints and has a faster recovery rate. More, it will help to keep your body active and alert which will in turn help in burning the excess body fat.
Pushups are generally meant to challenge your upper body as well as the core muscles since they normally have to decelerate your body after your legs, as well as the hips, propels you forward. For a better experience, try to elevate your feet or just combine it with some of the lower body moves we have mentioned above.
Bear crawls have a significant impact on your body as it helps to improve on your hips and pelvic positioning as well as the breathing mechanism in general. More so, it helps in boosting the stability of your shoulders, strengthens your wrist, core and hand. In addition to that, they work on your thighs and upper body by ensuring there is optimal fat burn.
A combination of some of these exercises is a great way to start your fat burning workouts routine. Perform a trial and thank me later.
