Most people train in a way which limits their fat burning. They may burn fat for a while, but they don't make their body burn fat for hours after the workout is complete. This kind of fat burning is sometime referred to as 24/7 Fat Loss. It is a term which signifies the fact that you can turn your body into a crazily efficient fat burning machine if you just train correctly.
By correctly, I don't mean that you can somehow take it easy. In fact, you will need to workout very hard to burn this kind of fat. You can't really achieve an optimal fat loss by cutting corners. You have to put in the work. There is no getting around it.
What I do mean by training correctly is that you need to do it smart. You need to make proper use of your time in the gym and you need to know how to train while you're there to maximize fat loss.
Let me give you some pointers on how you can create the kind of workouts that burn fat 24/7. I believe that these tips can make a big difference in the results you will get.
1. Work on your large muscle groups. You can burn a lot of fat by focusing on your biggest muscles. These are your legs, chest, and back. These will give you the best results for your time... as far as fat loss is concerned. So, exercises such as squats, lunges, leg extensions, pull ups, chest presses, chest flies, back rows, and deadlifts will deliver tremendous results. You wouldn't believe how quickly you can burn fat with such workouts.
2. Train hard with short rests - To keep your workouts intensive and hard you need to have proper momentum in them. You need to train hard and to do so quickly. Don't rest for too long between sets. Keep the workout flowing and your heart pumping hard.
3. Do free weight exercises and a lot of bodyweight training - You need to work in a free and flowing workout environment. Don't use a lot of training machines. They provide an unnatural workout environment and they limit the results you may achieve.
4. Push yourself hard toward the end - If you want to achieve a 24/7 fat loss you need to give yourself a metabolism boost. To do so without disrupting the flow of your workout, dedicate a few minutes at the end of your session to do a short circuit. Really push yourself and you will see results.
