Quickly Burn Fat & Look Great with Cardio & Weights

First of all, the primary ways to lose fat are provided in the accompanying infographic. And, as you can see, cardio and strength training are two of the ways to burn fat. However, if you truly want to lose fat, you have to go all in and work at it.

Most of all, cardio plays a supersized role in burning fat because it is responsible for the majority of fat that gets burned. And this is because cardio increases your metabolic rate. Furthermore, this increased metabolic rate results in burning more calories throughout the day.  Because of this it is best to do some cardio in the morning.

In addition, do at least 30 minutes of cardio three times a week. And, to get the most out of your cardio, do it as intensely and as fast as you are able to. Also, only if you are breaking a sweat are you getting the most out of the cardio.

Furthermore, instead of a 30 minute cardio session, a better alternative is to break the cardio into two 15-minute sessions. Preferably one session in the morning and one later in the day. And in that shortened 15-minute session go all out as best as your body lets you.

In addition, complement your cardio with weights. For example, do 30 minutes of weights three times a week. However, weight training will not burn body fat while you are exercising. But it will burn fat during rest of the day and night.

Most of all, weights not only strengthen what muscles you already have, but also adds more lean muscle mass. And the more lean muscle mass you have, the more calories will be burned when at rest. Most noteworthy, during any of the weight workouts, only work on two muscle groups a session. Therefore, in a week you will have worked on six (3 days x 2 muscle groups per session) muscles groups.

Also, to get the most out of weights use the most weights that stretch your capability. Doing this will cause your muscles to grow with time. And as they grow, more fat is burned, even when you are not strength training.
