Despite what the "experts" say, the old calories in VS. calories out battle STILL matters... A LOT.
And so if you're frustrated about your progress. There's no way around the math.
Here are 5 tips to burn more calories...
1) Use compound movements in superset or circuit fashion
Rows, Squats, Lunges, all varieties of Pushes, etc. in "non-competing" fashion help you burn more calories in a single workout because you're able to give each move your best effort.
2) Use density training
This is when you do as many reps as possible in a certain timeframe. The idea is to aim for more reps than your last workout. That means you work your muscles more, causing more muscle damage. That means more calorie-burning after your workout ends, while you're sitting on the couch.
3) Stay active
Making simple changes in your everyday routine is bonus calories being burned. So on your off days, take a brisk walk, practice Yoga, play with your kids. There are endless ways to stay active.
4) Shorten your rest periods
Going from 45 seconds of rest to 30 seconds of rest is a big deal believe it or not. By this one little tweak, you'll burn more calories (and in less time) with your workouts. But you should do this in a progressive manner.
These are just four ways to burn a couple of hundred more calories every day... but you can even do much better than that...
Time to burn more calories... and perhaps you CAN out-train your Easter diet ;)
To Your Success,
