Many people want to burn their excess body fat to achieve a more aesthetic physique. Others want to get rid of extra fat to preserve a better state of health, which keeps them away from lifestyle-related conditions, such as obesity, diabetes, hypertension, stroke, and even cancer. Exercise is a common choice for people when it comes to burning fat. The following are examples of quick workouts to burn one’s unwanted fats.
Body Building has presented some fast fat-blasting workouts.
For women, Women’s Health Mag has the answers for faster slimming with the “calorie-blasting metabolic moves.” One exercise is the lunge run, which targets the legs and the core. To start, the person stands with her feet hip-width apart and the arms at the sides. Then, she steps backwards and lowers into a reverse lunge while pumping the arms as if she is running for three t five seconds. It is important to keep the core in tight mode while performing the routine. Then, the person presses through the front heel as she returns to the standing position. The procedure is then repeated on the other side, in an alternating manner.
Men can also burn excess fat to up to five percent of their body fat with the circuits in Men’s Health UK. The publication introduced a set called Giant Set 1. This involves warm-up with running for two to three minutes, then the routine follows with execution of 45 seconds and rest of 15 seconds, before moving to the next exercise. One minute rest is designated after finishing the circuit, then it is done two more times.
Squats are done to workout the calves, quads, glutes, and abs. It is done by standing with the feet shoulder-width apart. Then, the person bends his hips and knees, with a stop when the thighs are parallel to the ground. It is noted that more muscles will be activated the deeper the squat goes, thus, burning more calories. Then, the person goes back to the starting position. Mountain climbers target the abs, quads, hamstrings, and glutes. This is done by keeling on all fours, with the hands in line and slightly wider than the shoulders. The left leg is straightened as the person lifts his right knee towards his chest, resembling a sprinter in a starting block. Then, the legs switch position as many times the person can. Flutter kick is another routine that burns fats. It is started by lying on one’s back, with the hands under his glutes. Then, the legs are raised 15 centimeters away from the ground, and are held after. The left leg is then raised to 45 degrees while the right leg remains steady. The legs’ positions are switched afterwards. Targeting the core and the abdominals, bicycle crunches complete Giant Set 1. The person starts with lying with the feet in the air and with knees bent to 90 degrees. The fingers are laced behind the head while the knees are brought into the chest. The cycle starts by straightening the right leg and turning the upper body to the left while bringing the right elbow towards the left knee. Then, the person switches his leg’s sides and pumps them back and forth.
Good news for men, as the routine can be done in just 20 minutes per day, which means more time for family and friends.
Along with the aformentioned exercises, fat burning is achievable with proper diet, adequate rest, and right attitude.
