IntroductionIf you asked the average person what is the best way to lose fat is to go on a diet but this is hardly the best way to burn fat. The first thing that a person should do is to have a good assessment of your health, the seek to raise your metabolism. In fact, its much more simple than people think. Their is no need to lift heavy weights, or any weights at all. You do not have to endure hours of cardio a week but you do have to be willing to spend 40 minutes, 3 times per week, or 20 minutes, 6 days per week.

Exercise AlternativesThere are many alternatives when it comes to exercise. Taking a brisk walk or going for a swim are easy ways to burn fat and increase muscle tone. However, steady state cardio is definitely the long way to fat loss. There is also the problem of overuse injuries resulting from repetitive motion, typical of steady state cardio. Circuit training (with or without weights) is a much more efficient workout routine to lose weight and increase muscle mass rapidly. One reason that it is so much more efficient than steady state cardio is that circuit training even allows you to lose weight when you are asleep!

How To Design Your WorkoutAnother reason that circuit training is so easy to execute is that the exercises are so simple. You did most of them in gym class when you were a kid. Other exercises are simply variations of exercises that you already know. Squats, jumps, pull ups, push ups, dips, step ups and lunges are all excellent exercises to use in circuit training. If you want to use weights, rows, curls, chest presses, and squats are excellent exercises as well. Make sure that the duration of each exercise is no greater than 30 seconds and that you don’t do two upper body or two lower body exercises in a row. Your session should include 5 -10 exercises and the total number of sets should be between 21-30. In about a week you will see that this is a very effective method to lose fat.

Nutrition To Accelerate Your MetabolismOnce you have been at it for a few weeks, your metabolism will be burning calories much more rapidly than before. You will find that you will be burning fat as well as calories. To assist in speeding up your metabolism, you need to adopt a nutrition plan rich in fruits, vegetables and whole grains, with a portion of protein. 3 small meals a day with 3 snacks at about 3 hour intervals will assist in speeding up your metabolism.

ConclusionYour new nutrition regimen along with circuit training should result in a rather rapid weight and fat loss results to keep you motivated. Make sure you continue to change your circuits by altering exercises, their order, and their duration so your body can not adapt. In this way you will continue to drop fat until you reach your goal.
