Working Out To Build Lean Muscle And Get Rid Of Fat All At Once

Combined strength and cardio training is a popular way to build strength and endurance, and maximize your cardiovascular conditioning, particularly when you can only get to the health club once or twice per week. It is possible to do a fast 15 minute session, or a lengthier 45 minute workout session by simply repeating a shorter circuit two to four times. The value of any circuit varies according to the competence of the trainee. If your bodybuilding and strength training program is not giving you the results you really want, and you are struggling to develop muscle size and definition, maybe you need to boost your progress once more through circuits. You might find it really tough in the beginning, but very soon you will have raised your strength and fitness levels above your expectations.

  • Circuit strength training, making use of light weight maneuvers that are carried out over multiple reps and sets, makes a good alternative for everyone competing endurance activities like UltraRunning, in particular when exercise movements connected to the particular sports activity are chosen.
  • Because you are only focusing on each separate exercise for a small amount of time, (15-20 seconds at most) you have to do them intensely. This helps ensure the highest level of fat burning.
  • A popular selection of exercises for an upper and lower body weight lifting circuit might be a group of exercise movements that concentrate on Torso, Quads, Hamstrings, Calves and Abdominals, but not necessarily in that order.

A creative strategy to hypertrophy muscles and simultaneously burn off fat is to integrate the Kettlebell swing with other activities. Here’s a good metabolic weight training routine:

  1. Kettlebell swing
  2. Front Squat To Bench
  3. Kettlebell swing
  4. Twisting Hanging Knee Raise
  5. Kettlebell swing
  6. Alternate Dumbbell Bench Press (low start)
  7. Kettlebell swing
  8. Underhand Close Grip Lat Pull Down
  9. Kettlebell swing
  10. Smith Machine Seated Toe Raise
  11. One-Arm Kettlebell Bent Raise
  12. Seated Barbell Wrist Curl
  13. Kettlebell swing
  14. Barbell Upright Row
  15. Kettlebell swing

The actual number of circuits you get through is determined by your fitness levels but try out a minimum of 3. To get ready to proceed through the routine and allow for just adequate muscle tissue recovery, take approximately 30 seconds between movements. Steadily add to the load as you work through the circuit. Once you have concluded every circuit, relax and take a rest for approximately 20-60 seconds after which start off a further circuit. To burn up fat, minimize recovery periods, but still train using substantial resistance.
