Ways to Live a Fat Burning Life
When you work out and the pounds still don’t come off, it can be incredibly frustrating. But what you may not know is that certain habits and physical changes can undermine even the most scientifically proven weight loss strategies. So what are the best ways to burn fat? How can you live a healthy and fat burning life?
#1: Build Muscle
It’s not secret that building muscle is the most efficient way to lose fat. Muscle burns fat, plain and simple. In fact, research shows that regular strength-training can increase your resting metabolic rate by up to 8 percent.
In an eight-week study, women and men who did only cardio exercise lost 4 pounds but gained no muscle, while those who did half the amount of cardio and an equal amount of strength-training shed 10 pounds of fat and added 2 pounds of muscle. So if you really want to burn fat and feel good, muscle is the way to go.
The more comfortable you become with a routine, exercise class, or fitness DVD, the less effective it gets. To continue to lose weight, you need to challenge your body in new ways. So get out of that basic gym routine and try something a little different.
SKATEROBICS®️ is an exercise form that has become increasingly popular over the years. It is known for its upbeat and energizing atmosphere that makes working out fun! Rollerskating is a great way to burn calories and stay active, and its also different from any other exercise. You will actually enjoy working out with SKATEROBICS®️, plus you get to experience all the amazing benefits of skating. So switch things up a bit! Get out there and try something new, it will make your fat burning journey a lot less tiresome.
#3: Break Up Your Meals
Muscle takes a lot more calories to maintain than fat. So if you want to continue burning fat even after you workout, your main priority should be to maintain your muscle mass. So what is the best way to do this?
If you’re losing weight (and therefore muscle) by cutting calories, eating five small meals instead of three large ones helps keep metabolism high. Spreading calories throughout the day keeps blood sugar levels even, and controls the release of insulin that can cause your body to store more calories as fat. Every time you eat, your metabolism speeds up to digest the food. So its much better to split up your meals throughout the day, that way your metabolism keeps burning calories.
#4: Compound Exercises
Any exercise is great when it comes to burning fat. However, compound exercises are much more efficient at fat burning than isolated exercises are. You can burn a lot more calories throughout your workout by doing compound exercises. You can also maintain a higher heart rate throughout your workout, which provides great cardiovascular benefits. So what kind of compound exercises should you be doing?
- Bench Press
- Leg Press
Really any exercise that works out multiple muscle groups at once will give you major fat burning benefits. Skating is also a compound exercise, making it ideal for fat burning. So give SKATEROBICS®️ a try if you are looking to burn fat and have fun doing so.
In the end exercise, muscle building, and diversity are the best ways to lose fat and stay fit. Compound exercises like skating are great for fat burning, so go out and give it a try!
