Where does your mind go when you think of the best exercises for fat loss?
CARDIO, right? Endless rounds of elliptical training at the gym, rowing, Zumba, maybe?
But guess what, cardio exercises are not the most efficient way to train your body to expel fat. I know that seems counterintuitive, but hang with me for a minute.
One of the best ways our bodies use fat stores for energy is when the body is under stress.
Imagine you’re being chased by a saber-toothed tiger. What would you do first?
I know what I would do—SPRINT! Specifically, I’d run as fast as I could to the nearest tree to climb, and then pull myself up into its branches to safety.
Think about what exercises you would be doing in that scenario. You’d be sprinting and pulling yourself up, using nothing but your bodyweight to propel you forward.
These types of exercises for fat loss are called closed-chain exercises, which is a fancy way of saying “an exercise that moves your body through space, ” a.k.a high-impact bodyweight activities.
These are the best types of exercises to do if you’re training for fat loss. Your body understands how to respond to closed-chain exercises (it doesn’t know you’re NOT running away from a TIGER) by using your fat stores for energy.
That’s why in this week’s video, I’m going to reveal which specific bodyweight activities are the best exercises for fat loss that will give you the most bang for your buck!
