Work Out

What work out routine do you suggest for someone who wants to lose body fat and build muscle


Here are my 5 tips for smart training:

1. Incorporate interval training
Varied and explosive movements stimulate your body’s repair cycle effectively for higher calorie burns and improved fitness. Including sprints into your cardio workout means more fat-burning overall.

2. Practise compound movements
They are responsible for greater calorie burns during sessions as well as increasing lean muscle tissue at a greater rate, meaning a faster metabolism overall.

3. Keep it interesting
The same routine delivers the same results. You need to vary your programme often to challenge your body and prevent boredom, and also to stave off weight loss plateaus.

4. Consistency
Fitness is a priority no matter the circumstances. Never do nothing. "Do what you can with what you’ve got, from where you are”.

5. Push the weights
Strength training is critical for long-term toning and health benefits. More lean muscles means a faster metabolism. As woman, it is incredibly difficult to really grow muscle enough to look bulky. Don’t be afraid to lift heavy weights, where you would struggle to perform more than your 3 sets of 8-12 reps.

Remember that to build muscle, you need to be having a low fat, protein-rich meal/shake within two hours after training. This will ensure that you make the most of your workout, with the best results. Diet plays a crucial role in shaping your body, and can’t be overlooked.
