One of the biggest challenges most people face when trying to boost your metabolism and burning fat is seeing results quickly enough to stick with the program.
Most of us know we’ll need to make nutrition changes and exercise to see results. We know some work is involved. But it gets frustrating when you put in the work and don’t see the results you expect.
The best way to keep your motivation levels high so that you stick with your exercise program over the long haul is to see fat burning results fast!
Here are 3 awesome exercise tips that will boost your metabolism and melt away body fat faster than ever!
1. Move Your Body (the right way)!
Most people start their fat burning journey with the typical “fat burning exercises.” In other words, they start with some type of aerobics, such as the stationary bike or the treadmill. While it’s great that they are doing SOMETHING, these are not the best choices for fat burning exercises, especially they way most people use them.
Instead of riding the stationary bike like a hamster on a wheel, try incorporating exercises that move your entire body (or multiple exercises that get the job done).
Fat Burning Exercises like:
- Bodyweight Squats
- Spiderman Push Ups
- Mountain Climbers
2. Try Multi Workouts
What are multi workouts? Instead of completing a longer 45 minute to hour long workout (or more), try doing multiple workouts throughout the day that are only 10 or 15 minutes in length.
It may be easier to fit short workouts into your schedule and you’ll also boost your metabolism and burn more calories by working out multiple times per day, even if your total workout time is the same (ie, three 20 minute workouts versus one 60 minute workout).
3. Improve the Quality of Your Workouts
Try being progressive with your workouts instead of always doing the same thing. If you don’t improve, your results won’t either.
I’ll give you two quick examples, one with typical cardio and one with weights.
If you ride the stationary bike for an hour and go 12.1 miles every time, eventually you’ll reach a fat loss plateau and have to do something else.
If you can bench press 100 pounds for 8 reps and never improve on that, you won’t get more results, either.
While you can’t improve every workout indefinitely, you need to strive to be progressive with your fat burning workouts and improve over time. You won’t see the fat burning results you want if you always work well within your current capabilities.
