4 Fitness Tricks to Maximize Fat Loss
When fat loss is your mission, you want to do anything you can to speed up the process of removing that stubborn body fat. You already know that diet and exercise are essential to achieve your ideal weight but aren’t there other things you can do to ensure you burn more fat in less time? Let’s take a look at the top 4 tricks you can use to maximize your fat loss and achieve your dream body faster.
- Make Small Fitness Challenges
You don’t have to join American Ninja to set up small calorie burning challenges for yourself. It’s as easy as parking further away from the store. The idea is to get you to be more active throughout your day and not just in the gym. Here are a few great examples:
- Park at the end of the parking lot to give you more time to walk
- Take the stairs, not the elevator
- Do squats at your desk
- Stand while eating or watching television
- Try Fasting
More commonly called Intermittent Fasting, this method of 16 hours without food and 8 hours with food is quickly becoming one of the most popular trends in the country.
Studies show that Intermittent Fasting can provide a number of incredible benefits with the most notable being fat loss. If you want to give it a try, make sure you don’t eat after 8 p.m. the previous night. You can resume eating at 12 p.m. the next day. That gives you 8 hours to eat up. While fasting, be sure to drink plenty of water. Tea is also okay as long as you don’t put anything else in it. Try doing this Monday through Friday and leave the weekends up to your mood.
- Use Thermogenics
Thermogenic supplements are another popular way to ignite more fat burning. Thermogenics are special ingredients that are usually herbal and they pack a punch when it comes to fat burning. Several thermogenic ingredients help to ignite your metabolism and block fat from being absorbed. The most effective and scientifically proven thermogenics are as follows:
- Bitter Orange Extract
- Green Tea Extract
- Raspberry Ketones
- Train with Intensity
If you’re still walking or jogging on a treadmill for an hour or more, you need to get with the times. Low intensity, long duration exercise is out and high intensity is in. Studies show that when you increase your intensity, you get better results in less time. A typical high intensity workout will only last around 15 minutes, leaving you to spend the rest of the time doing meal prep.
The trick to high intensity workouts is to use bodyweight exercises and avoid taking a break until you’ve completed the list one time. Read more about it on our website here.
