Turning your body into an effective fat-burning machine requires a few key ingredients: a clean diet, strength training, and some type of cardio component that gets your heart pumping. Of course there are other factors in play—sleep, stress levels, etc.—but to maximize the results from your workout, the best strategy is to combine weight lifting and cardio into one intense training session. [Tweet this tip!] This doesn't mean simply adding a 30-minute jog to the end of your strength workout, but instead try performing strength moves as a circuit, moving quickly between exercises so that your heart rate stays elevated (the cardio component).
What exercises should you do? There's a multitude of options within the top five movement patterns experts recommend, but this routine is a great place to start. With the following five moves, you'll challenge every major muscle to maximize your burn.
How it works: Do 6 reps of each exercise in order, moving at a quick pace. Repeat the entire circuit twice more.
You'll need: A set of dumbbells.
