Weight training works for weight loss. That's right, it's not just cardio that causes fat loss, but also the metabolism boosting effects of weight training can help you shed pounds. If you want to get lean and build your best body ever, you need to use weight training for weight loss and muscle building and metabolism boosting.
In my weight training programs for weight loss, I use Supersets for Fat Loss, but a lot of readers ask why. A lot of people guess that it is because I want to keep the heart rate high during the workout, because they think that burns more fat.
But that's not the point. The answer really isn't that complex (and besides, heart rate has nothing to do with fat loss success).
The real reasons I use Supersets for Fat Loss?
Simply to get more work done in less time. By supersetting "non-competing" exercises, you can do almost twice as much exercise in half the time. This allows you to get in and out of the gym faster, while also allowing you to train more muscle (and therefore put more "Turbulence" stress on your body).
More turbulence results in more calories burned during and after exercise, and therefore, more fat loss, especially from those stubborn hard-to-lose love handles and thighs.
So here's a sample weight training superset workout for weight loss. And you can do this workout at home with only a bench, dumbbells, and an exercise ball.
Do 2 warmup sets for superset #1, by using 50% of the weight you normally use for each exercise.
DB Squat (10 reps)
DB Chest Press (8 reps)
DB Row (8 reps per arm)
Exercise Ball Hamstring Curl (12 reps)
Finish with interval training. This workout can be done in less than 45 minutes.
Now that's how you use weight training for weight loss. This workout will boost your metabolism for hours after training. That will burn more calories and fat. Plus, you'll sculpt your body with the weight training exercises, so you look lean, not bone-rack skinny.
