There are several workouts out there for those of you looking to
achieve fat loss. If you really want to maximize your efforts and achieve
maximum fat loss, performing a full body strength training routine is the way to
Of course, there is more than one way to go about doing a full body
strength routine. You must make sure your routine is well rounded. With a full
body strength training routine, this is key as your goal is to work your whole
body in the course of one workout. You can accomplish this by including
exercises that incorporate the largest percentage of muscles in your body.
Neglecting to do this will cause muscle imbalance, particularly in the way in
which muscles exert force on your bones.
A full body strength training routine should always include a
10-minute warm-up in which you do some form of light, continuous activity. This
warms up the muscles and helps you burn the carbs your body uses as fuel so you
can focus on fat burning.
As mentioned previously, there are many ways to go about develop a
full body strength training routine that suits your body and it’s particular
abilities, but most routines include 1-3 sets, 15-20 reps each of the following
exercises, lat pull downs, dumbbell flat bench presses, dumbbell curls, tricep
pushdowns, leg extensions, leg curls, and leg presses. Completing all 3 sets of
the exercises you choose (including the ones listed above) should take about
75-90 minutes to finish.
When completing a set of exercises, you shouldn’t rest for more
than a minute before starting the next set. This will tire the body, but by
forcing the body to continue, you will burn more fat. For those performing full
body strength training for the first time, only 1 set of exercises should be
performed for the first few months. Have no worries, even doing these exercises
one time through will burn fat as your entire body is called upon to work during
a routine like this. As you
progress, you’ll be able to add more sets. Even the most advanced user should do
no more than 3 sets in a session. Overtraining will work contrary to your
fitness routine and will only exhaust the body. To get the max fat loss benefits
from a routine like this, you must also allow your body to rest.
