A Basic Guide To Setting Up An Exercise Routine That Targets Fat Loss

It is most practical to center your exercise routine on cardiovascular training in trying to burn fat. Alongside a 1500 calorie diet, these tips will help you lose weight.  However, two tedious hours on the elliptical or treadmill aren’t always the best solution.  In maximizing you fat loss, you want to set up interval training.  For example, you could do five two laps of fast paced running followed by one lap of light jogging or even walking.  This jacks up your heart rate at different points in your workout, whereas you would be unable to main that high of heart rate within a consistent, more longer-paced workout.

Weight training can also be used to burn fat very quickly, using the same types of intervals or better “super-super-sets” with an arrangement of different hard-hitting exercises in a row.  Many people perceive that fat loss and building muscle are often incompatible and are essentially a one-or-the-other kind of thing.  They can be very compatible as the more muscle you have, the faster your metabolism will be.  Your metabolism will be constantly at work to feed your muscles, whereas if you are muscularly limited there will be less of a reason for your metabolism to get to work and feed anything other than your love handles. One thing to watch out for, if you have a social life is alcohol, if you must drink, consume the lowest calorie alcohol you can find.

Working out first thing in the morning is a good way to ignite your fat loss, as, at least for men, testosterone levels are the highest, and your metabolism is working at its fastest.  This exercise should not be done in a fasted state as you at least need a little food (perhaps just the calories in a banana) to as a match to get your metabolism lit for the day.
