Build Muscle and Burn Fat

Build Muscle and Burn Fat - Intense Weight Lifting

Most people workout because they want to look better. One of the biggest misconceptions about getting ripped and cut muscles is that you should do low weight and high reps. While this does work, there is a much better way build muscle and burn fat.

Many people believe that the best way to get those defined muscles is to do a lot of reps with a small amount of weight. This way will work, but it will also cause you to lose some muscle. The reason for this is that your body will realize that it does not need all of this muscle, so it will start to use some of the protein in your muscles for other purposes in your body. This will actually cause your muscles to shrink.

The best way to build muscle and burn fat at the same time is to do low reps with high weight and throw in some cardio. You should take every set to failure. What is failure, you may ask? Failure is exactly what it sounds like. Your muscles fail to be able to lift the weight anymore. For example, if you are doing 3 sets of 10, you should do as much weight as you can in order to get 10 reps and no more in the first set.

If you can get 11, move up in weight. This will force your body to keep all the muscle that it has and to even build more. This may sound like the total opposite of everything you've read, but it works and will actually help you build muscle and burn fat at the same time. Doing cardio will cause you to burn off fat, which is the reason that those muscles are hidden in the first place. Combining intense weight lifting with high intensity cardio will cause you to build muscle and burn fat at the same time, and to get those ripped muscles you've been trying so hard for.

This is definitely the best way to build muscle and burn fat at the same time. There are many other factors that can help you to get an amazing body even quicker. There are too many of them to talk about in this article. If your goal is to build muscle and burn fat at the same time, you should check out my page

15 Minute Workouts to Build Muscle and Burn Fat for Busy Men

15 Minutes is All You Need to Build Muscle and Burn Fat!

Don't give me that lame excuse, "I don't have the time to exercise!"

That excuse only works for the weak minded and lazy man. But men have an obligation, or at least they used to have an obligation. Once upon a time, men were obligated to be strong, tough and rugged! Men were not supposed to be fat, flabby, weak and fragile.

Build Muscle Burn Fat

In my opinion, a REAL man should be strong and tough. If he isn't strong, then he needs to do something about it!

If you are reading this article feeling you need to do something about the way you look, think and feel, or maybe you want to improve yourself physically and mentally, then read on my friend. You're about to discover how short workouts can help you build muscle and burn fat faster than ever before!

Why is the emphasis on short workouts? It's all about training economics. Time is such as commodity nowadays, everyone is always in a rush, everyone complains about no time, yet we all have the same amount of time, each and every day.

I have no problems relating to the busy guy. I own my own business, work a full time job, I'm married and have a daughter. Although time truly is "free", I don't have a whole lot of spare time so I decided to eliminate time wasters in my day. Driving to and from the gym, waiting for equipment at the gym, getting stuck talking to "that guy" again at the gym are all time wasters and if you eliminate these time wasters you can easily add a good hour of extra time to your day to do with as you wish!

In addition, creating your own gym, training in your back yard or at a near by playground allows you the pleasure of getting away from the negative atmosphere found at most gyms and health clubs. You can listen to your own style of music, or no music at all, you never have to wait for equipment and you can dress however you want!

Personally, I make the time to look great and stay in shape, even though I'm married, this doesn't mean I am going to let myself go (like many other married men) and look like a sack of potatoes. What girl wants to go to the beach with their husband or boyfriend who looks flabby and weak? No need to answer this question, we all KNOW the answer already!

The current program you're about to see is very powerful but it requires serious effort. The challenges you face with these workouts will not only sculpt your body into a rock hard specimen, but the workouts will also develop your mental toughness and you will carry this "edge" with you everywhere you go. I have seen men improve their relationships, business success and more after only 1 week of these 15 minute muscle building, fat burning workouts! The success you are about to experience goes far beyond the physical realm!

Start with a short warm up to prepare your mind and body consisting of calisthenics for the upper body, lower body and the core. This takes approximately 3 minutes at most and looks like this:

1A) squats x 12 reps

1B) push ups x 12 reps

1C) pull ups x 12 reps

1D) v ups x 15 reps

1E) jumping jacks x 15 reps

1F) mountain climbers x 15 reps

Perform the warm up straight through as a circuit which will also elevates your heart rate. Once the warm up is complete you will be feeling physically and mentally ready to rock n' roll and train hard! Yes, I did say 'train hard!"

Intensity is critical if you want results, I will not beat around the bush and tell you that these workouts are easy. They are not easy, in fact, they are tough workouts and will require mental and physical toughness, sweat and perseverance! Building muscle and slicing away unwanted body fat requires effort but the results, as you're about to experience, are very well worth the sweat and effort!

Most people simply don't train hard enough to get the results they want. There are no secret exercises and the basics always get the job done. You won't find special exercises that have never been seen before in the REAL Man workout plan, instead, everything you need to do will be the basic compound exercises which allow you to use heavy weights and work many muscles at once. This is what we call "training economics."

The workout is performed as a circuit to enable you to keep the pace high and leverage your time. In addition, these workouts will keep your metabolism racing for hours on end after your workout, literally transforming you into a fat burning machine around the clock! All you need to do is choose a few basic movements that work your core, your lower body, and the upper body pushing and pulling muscles.

Don't worry, your arms will get plenty pumped up for the ladies and the beach if you work the upper body movements with heavy weights, basic exercises and intensity. Movements like parallel bar dips, pull ups / chin ups, push ups, dumbbell benching and dumbbell rows all work the "guns" heavily and will transform those skinny arms into muscular, shirt stretching "guns"! Isolation movements are not as effective for adding muscle or leveraging your time so keep these movements to a minimum.

Try the following workout after your warm up:

1A) mixed grip pull ups (vary grip EVERY set) 2 x max reps

1B) feet elevated push ups 2 x max reps

2A) dumbbell reverse lunges 2 x 8 each leg

2B) standing dumbbell military press 2 x 6 - 8 reps

If you are a beginner, rest 30 seconds after exercise A, then perform exercise B, rest another 30 seconds and keep repeating until the prescribed sets are completed.

If you are more advanced, perform exercises A and B back to back and rest 60 seconds after exercise B. Three days a week should be your target goal for working out, and when you have more time it is perfectly fine to get in a fourth workout of the week. Your fourth workout of the week can be a bodyweight only workout performed for high reps. These short workouts are especially great for Friday's when you're in a rush to get home and get ready for a night out on the town or to see your family.

Short workouts also make it more motivating to get in there and workout as opposed to dreading your 60 minute workout that you will be more likely to skip, especially on Fridays!

These powerful, 15 minute workouts solve the all too often excuse, "I don't have the time to exercise." Well, now you have the knowledge and you KNOW you have the time, so get busy with it.

Maybe you can help motivate other men into looking the way men are supposed to look!

Learn How to Burn Fat, Gain Muscle and Develop an Athletic Body

There is no getting around the fact that diet and workout strategies are extremely important if you're going to get a have a body like a Hollywood A lister that will be envied and admired by both men and women alike. This article will really emphasize the training portion of a solid fitness model body workout routine, with tips on how to properly structure your workouts so your body will be able to both burn fat and gain muscle within the same routine.

Burn Fat Gain Muscle

Workout Basics: Why the High Rep/Light Weight Strategy Won't Help You Reach Your Goals

Many of us have been convinced that higher reps with lighter weights is what helps us obtain more muscle, nothing could be further from the truth. Unfortunately, it can appear that your muscles are getting bigger when in fact they really aren't. What happens is that the muscles will appear to be more toned in the gym when they are fully pumped, but afterward when the pump is gone, the tightness in the muscles disappears as well. You have to lift heavy weights to effectively maintain the great tone and ripped definition of your huge muscles.

Workout Basics: The Real Secret to Gaining Long-Term Muscle Tone is Lifting Heavy Weights

By the overloading the muscles, we accelerate the density, and therefore the quality, of muscle definition and improve our nervous system at the same time. You won't gain a lot of muscle while you are working to lose fat, however, you can make your muscles look more toned and defined if you use a workout approach that is more strength-minded. You should aim to lift approximately 5 sets or more of 3-5 reps with the heavier weights. Another great tip is to mix in what are known as "super sets", reps of exercises that work your opposing muscle groups, like the back and the chest. If you learn to go heavier on opposing muscle groups without reaching fatigue, you will also find that the added intensity in your workout will cause you to burn more fat when you exercise than before. My workouts take a heck of a lot less time this way. Turbulence Training for Fat Loss program by Craig Ballantyne outlines this kind of system. This program is an excellent choice for anyone that wants to burn fat and gain muscle.

High Intensity Interval Training is highly recommended for people that want a the most effective cardio workout.

If you want to burn fat as well as retain and build muscle at the same time, it is important to incorporate some high intensity intervals into your workout strategy, because cardio is the real key to success. No more agonizingly slow and repetitious cardio routines; you will be able to burn more fat in less time with this strategy of high intensity interval training. If you have never done interval training before, the best way to describe it is that you would do a period of really intense exercise and follow it by a period of easier exercise, then repeat the cycle for anywhere between 20-30 minutes. There are a lot of options on how to accomplish this, but the best way to do it effectively is by using either a treadmill or a stationary bike. If you do interval training directly after the weight lifting portion of your workout, you will see better results.

For an example of the benefits of High Intensity Interval Training or HIIT you should look at the workout routine of a sprinter. Anyone can get an amazing ripped-looking body with a low percentage of body fat and strong, toned muscles just by following a HIIT workout program.

A program with powerful cardio and even an elementary strength training regimen will help you burn fat gain muscle, develop strength and increase your power. An athlete's body is yours when you workout like an athlete.
