There are many ways that someone can work out to blast away the body fat. You have all these diverse systems, names, attention-grabbers, and devices promising the world to you. But the majority of the time, none of them work because they are not backed by science. Total body training is backed by science, particularly when it comes to losing weight and building muscle at the same time.
Significance of Body training
Total body training is essentially what it says; you train the entire body at each session. Most total body work outs only take between 45 minutes to 1 hour to complete. This is great because we are all pressed for time and live in a fast paced society. You definitely don’t need to be inside a gym for 2 hours slaving away on a piece of cardio equipment. All you need is 45 minutes and total body training allows us that.
Body training and role of gym
Gym plays an important role in regard of boy fitness as well to lose weight.A basic template for total body training workouts would be for you to go to the gym 3 times per week. Each time you will be working each major muscle group with one exercise. Each exercise you perform is going to be a multi-joint, compound lift.
What a compound lift is that it involves 2 or more joints and numerous major muscles to complete each repetition. A good example would be a squat. The opposite of this is an isolation movement. A good example of this would be a bicep curl.
The reason you want to be performing multi joint movements is because you are able to use more total weight, which puts an increased load on the musculature. This also ensures we burn more total calories during the session and once we stop. Here is a good example of how a workout will go.
- Glute Ham Raises
- Bench Press
- Wide Grip Pull-ups
- Dumbbell Rows
Those are 6 multi joint movements that will work the entire body and burn a tremendous amount of calories. You would perform each exercise for 3 sets at 10 repetitions only resting 60 seconds in between your sets. This will keep your heart rate up throughout the session and make sure you are out of the gym in 45 minutes.
Two days later, you will perform the same style workout, except you will use different exercises and utilize a different set and rep scheme. Here is an example.
- Incline Dumbbell Press
- Barbell Row
- Push Press
- Walking Lunges
- Roman Chair Situps
Again, you can see that each exercise is multi joint, working the entire body. For this session, you would perform each exercise for 3 sets and 15 repetitions. The reason you want to mix things up is so that your body does not get over trained. By mixing things up, you are hitting different muscle fiber types and not over taxing your nervous system.
Hope these TIPS help you- keep in mind- total body training, 6 movements, 3 times per week.
