So you want to lose some body fat but want to know which exercises will give you the most bang for your buck.
You don’t want to waste time doing exercises that simply don’t burn many calories. Today we will run through our top 10 favorite exercises to fat loss that we like to include in our HIIT workouts as we know they will help you get faster results.
We love HIIT workouts, and the core part of any HIIT workout are the exercises that burn the most amount of calories in the shortest time possible. Either with or without weights.
Not all exercises are created equally, some are great for focusing in on certain muscles but they won’t necessarily help you to burn many calories by doing so.
When trying to lose weight or burn body fat your best option is to choose exercises that work the larger muscles of the body all at once or as much as possible.
It’s just no good doing triceps dips for example, if you want to achieve fast weight loss or burn a lot of calories during a workout. Yes you will feel your muscle working but the energy needed to lift your body up and down is so much less than the energy required to jump or squat.
This is because more muscles are used to make that exercise happen thus burning more calories at the time and whilst your body recovers in what we call the Afterburn effect.
