Fat loss workouts are the most popular types of workouts. Around 80% of people that go to the gym go there for fat loss purposes but skip a very important step in their fat loss efforts. You see doing cardio and going to the gym is fine but why not perform a fat loss bodyweight workout ? I mean why totally ignore your own bodyweight and go to the gym to sit on a machine and train? It doesn’t make sense.
There are numerous advantages to fat loss bodyweight workouts. For starters, they increase your metabolism more than any other exercise since they force your body to master its own weight before progressing. It’s great to go to the gym and lift weights but if your body can’t manage your own bodyweight then your movement with weights will be awkward and not fully work each muscle group. Here are some other advantages to fat loss bodyweight workout routines.
-Joint health. Healthy joints mean that you can train harder and train longer, which means you’ll increase your metabolism.
-They can be done anywhere even in the comfort of your own home. So after your workout or if you missed one, you can go to your basement and burn fat.
-They can be as hard as you want them to be. When you train with weights you are limited by how much weight you can use safely. There comes a point where heavy weight feels uncomfortable. You can increase the intensity of your fat loss bodyweight workouts endlessly.
Here’s what a good fat loss bodyweight workout would look like.
-You’d start with a warm up of squats, lunges and push-ups for 2 sets of 12 reps.
-Your first four exercises would be done in a row without rest. Here’s a good example
Close Grip Push-ups
Do all of these for 4 sets of 15 reps and rest for 30 seconds
-Your next four exercises would be
Spider man push-ups
Single Leg Deadlifts
Do all of these for 3 sets of 12 reps and rest for 30 seconds
Not easy right? Fat loss bodyweight workouts are the ultimate way to raise your metabolism.
