How You Should Change Your Workout Routine To Lose Weight

The way you work out effects the amount of weight that you lose and as a man or woman you will want maximum results for your hard work; often, you may be doing something wrong or just not doing something the best way possible. You may or may not hit the gym regularly, but you should know how to schedule your workout routine so that you get the most out of your trip. You will want to build muscle as you shed the weight as well, not only becoming leaner but also more fit. Soho Strength Lab co-founder and trainer Albert Matheny has been sharing some secrets to burning more calories with less amount of work. Just need to tweak your routine schedule.

How You Should Change Your Workout Routine To Lose Weight

Strength Training Comes First

Cardio is the most common exercise people start with but Matheny says it’s best to do some strength training instead. You want more lean muscle for your metabolism to work better. Once you have played around in the weights room, you can switch to cardio and stretch all those sore muscles out, building on your core. You thus use the carbs stored in you, and allow the body to burn more fat during cardio.

Heavier Weights Needed

If you want to speed up the calorie burn, add more weights to the ones you train with, of course without hurting yourself or compromising your form. The more stress that’s placed on the body, the harder it has to work to keep a palace and it does great in building muscle while really torching those calories.

Put Your Body Into It

It’s not just your arms and legs you should be working on but your body as a whole. Don’t work on toning one muscle group at a time, instead focusing on incorporating both the upper and lower parts of your body together. You can also add a boost of cardio by doing some dumbbell squats.

Interval Training Instead of 20 Minute Jog

Predictable workouts don’t burn as much fat. Switching things around every couple of minutes gets your heart pumping, your muscles moving and more calories burning. You can add little sprints to your 20-minute job or you can move around a cardio routine, but either way, remove the predictability.

Inclines are Better

When you’re on that treadmill, don’t be walking or running on a straight path but add a steeper incline so that you must work harder to keep up the pace. Strength-building is added to the cardio this way. If you’re jobbing though, don’t make the incline over 5% as it could hurt your Achilles tendons and lead to injury.

Loving the Stretches

You should actually love the stretches and make them count. You deserve a break after a workout but do not take it until you have completed all your stretches. You can add a bit more cardio to the stretching business as well, particularly if you include yoga moves that can crush a few more calories while you finish up for the day.

Just Keep it Up

You have a goal and you hit it but don’t go back to a regular routine. Keep challenging yourself to be better, look better, feel better. You want to be stronger and fitter; the only way to do so is to keep going at it and keeping to the hard work you’ve been putting into it to date.
