Home Fitness Workout to Lose Belly Fat2 min read
Are you trying lose belly fat without going to a high priced gym or purchasing expensive products? Then you may just want to try out exercising at home. Without even performing long, boring cardio, you can easily drop fat with 2-3 high intensity workouts at home using just your bodyweight and a pair of dumbbells.
Studies prove that high intensity training is better at burning fat than traditional weight training and cardiovascular training methods. I like high intensity training because it saves me money. I usually organize my workouts into a superset fashion.
Supersets are where you perform two exercises back to back with little to no rest in between. For example, try to perform a set of pushups followed by a set of pullups. Notice how elevated your heart rate is. What this kind of training does is boost your metabolic rate.
Boosting your metabolic rate is more important than focusing on how many calories you burn with a particular exercise. This is because you burn calories on a daily basis, regardless how much you exercise. People with fast metabolic rates are naturally lean because their fast metabolism helps them burn off a lot of calories and prevents fat gain.
So this is the real key in losing fat = boost your metabolic rate. So you don’t need to go to a gym and run on a treadmill for an hour a day, nor do you need to lift heavy weights for hours per week. All you need to do is perform high intensity workouts that raise your heart rate, thus boosting your metabolic rate in order to lose a lot of fat.
