Fat Burning Workout Plan

Here's how to structure the ideal fat burning workout plan. It is one of the best 30 minute workout programs you could possibly do, especially if you want to burn fat and lose weight quickly. This beach body workout combines a range of quick weight loss principles in order to help you burn the maximum amount of body fat in an relatively short period of time.

The first step in the fat burning workout plan is to take a thermogenic like, XLR8 Thermogenic, about 20-30 minutes before you commence the exercise session. What this does is speed up your metabolism, give you an energy boost and also force your fat cells to release stored body fat into your blood stream, i.e. your blood level of free fatty acids increases. This means your body can use them as an energy source during the exercise session.

Fat Burning Workout Plan

The next step is to commence your workout. Now, the format of your workout is completely up to you but you will simply need to follow this basic structure.

Warm up
Start with a 5-minute warm up on a cardio machine and then move on to the resistance component of your fat burning workout plan.

Resistance exercise
The purpose of the resistance (weight) training in this beach body workout is to stimulate muscle growth. Now, keep in mind that stimulating muscle growth and actually having a muscle grow are two very different things. Of course, when it comes to losing weight or burning fat most people certainly don't want to put on muscle. Nevertheless, resistance training play a very important role in assisting the body in burning fat.

In order to burn body fat it is important that you maintain your muscle mass. Since trained/ recovering muscle is metabolically active, the more muscle you have the easier it is to burn fat. Therefore, the resistance training helps to maintain your muscle mass as you burn fat.

If you didn't perform any resistance training as a part of your fat burning workout plan, as you lose weight (over a period of time) your body will indiscriminately lose both fat and muscle tissue and of course, if you lose muscle your metabolism slows down, which makes further weight loss more difficult.

Another major benefit of the resistance training component of this beach body workout is that it depletes the body of its carbohydrate stores, both from within the muscles (muscle glycogen) and from the blood glucose (which is supplied by liver glycogen).

Since resistance exercise tends to be a high intensity form of exercise you tend to burn off a greater proportion of carbohydrates as a fuel source when this form of exercise is performed.

Aerobic exercise
Therefore, after the resistance component of the fat burning workout plan has been completed, you need to move on to the cardio (aerobic) component of your beach body workout.

After completing the resistance component you have now created an environment in your body whereby your blood sugar is low and your blood level of free fatty acids is high.

Since cardio exercise tends to be a low to moderate level of intensity, the body can use either fat or carbohydrate as a fuel source and because the body has been depleted of its carbohydrate stores from the resistance exercise, it will use more fat as a fuel during this part of the workout, especially since the thermogenic has mobilised more fat from the fat stores in the body.

The type of cardio exercise you choose to perform is completely up to you. Also, how long you do it for it also up to you. Obviously the longer you do it for, the more fat you will burn.

Interval training as a part of a fat burning workout plan

Don't worry about working within a certain heart rate or 'fat burning zone', you will burn fat anyway. Also, if you want to perform interval training that is fine too. If fact, interval training is the best form of cardio to perform to maximise fat burning in your body!

After the cardio session is completed make sure you don't eat or drink anything except for water for at least 20-30 minutes. As a result, of taking the thermogenic as well as performing the exercise, your metabolism will remain elevated post-exercise and you will still have an environment in your body whereby your blood sugar level is low and your blood fat level is high.

As a result, you will keep burning off body fat during this 20-30 minute post-exercise window.

Overall, this is one of the best 30 minute workout programs you can do for maximising the amount of fat you burn in a single session. If you perform this fat burning workout plan at least 4-5 times a week, in less than a month you will be amazed at the changes that occur in your body.
