Optimal FAT loss Training
What does a workout to burn the chunky bits, look like..?
Your (our) workout should be designed along a few variables:
The variables of getting strong, increasing the size of your muscles AND burning chunky bits.
YOUR (our) goal is for you to reach your maximum potential (Losing fat or getting stronger), in the most efficient manner with regards your lifestyle and training age.
There have been many studies that have taken place with regards the work you need to do in the gym in order for you to get strong or lose the chunky bits..
(Who doesn’t hate chunky bits!)
A recent study took some healthy males and allocated them either slow or normal bar speeds on a compound exercise (Back Squat, press, deadlift etc)
They kept the weight under tension for 6 secs 3 down and 3 up, with no pause at the bottom.
They found that after an 8 week training program the lower speeds displayed an increase in muscle size by an average of 70% and an increase in strength by 10%.
WHAT DOES THIS TELL US…?
This tells us that if you are looking to gain strength/muscles size to burn FAT it may be a good idea to slow the reps down and not bounce out of every rep.
Or (THE BIGGEST TOP TIP!) If you are looking to burn the chunky bits (FAT), get more time under tension….In other words get uncomfortable.
