There are many ways to workout and some are more effective than others. Sometime, small changes in your workout routine are enough to produce big results. In this article, I’ll talk about some of the variations you can do in your workouts which may give you totally different results that those you’re accustomed to. Get ready to make some changes.
Combine different movements
To burn more fat you should try to incorporate more muscle groups into each exercise. Simply increase the movements you do. For instance, you can do lunges and bicep curls together, or squats with dumbbell shoulder presses. Once you do that, you’re putting a greater strain on your body, increasing the effort you put in, and you burn more calories. It’s as simple as that.
Do your exercises more slowly
In each resistance exercise, there’s the lifting part (the one which you work against resistance) and the release part where you return to the starting position. For instance, when you do bicep curls, the curl itself is the lifting part and the return to straight arms is that release part.
You should try to do the lifting part very slowly. Really take your time with the movement. You will find that this makes the exercise that much harder. Naturally, this may increase the overall workout time, so you don’t have to do this on each and every exercise, but make sure to do some of the exercises in each workout very slowly. You will feel the difference.
Fill your rests with cardio
When you do strength workouts, you rest between sets. Normally this rest is about 40 – 60 seconds long. Is there a better way to use this time? I think there is: short cardio bursts.
What if you filled your rest times with a little cardio? For instance, doing jumping jacks for 60 seconds, or simply running in place. Your muscles will still get their rest from the heavy lifting they just did, but you will keep your heart beat up, burn more calories, and get on overall more intense workout.
Each of these changes is good enough to provide excellent results. But why not combine them all for even greater results? I recommend using all 3 of these variations on your next few workouts and see how you feel with them. You may find that your workouts have been turned up a notch or two and the results won’t take long to follow.
