You know what I hate? Wasting time.
I don't mean sitting around doing nothing when you should be working, or watching your favorite show on Netflix at 3am when you should have been asleep hours ago. That's not wasting time--that's procrastination, and is a time-honored art. Very different things.
When I say wasting time, I mean not getting enough out of something for the amount of time you spend on it. Basically, I'm talking about Return on Investment. If something doesn't have a great ROI, doing it is sort of a waste of time.
This is especially true if you could have done something else in that same amount of time that would have yielded better returns. If the investment is the same, every time you choose the wrong options, you're wasting time, energy, and results.
This is true for everything in the gym, as well. The truth is, some things just have a better ROI when it comes to certain goals.
For example, not all exercises are created equally. Especially when it comes to fat loss.
Sure, some exercises are "good" in the general sense, but that doesn't mean they're "good for fat loss."
No one would argue, for instance, that the bench press is a good exercise. It's great for getting strong, building an impressive upper body, and bragging about how much you bench. But is it really a good exercise for fat loss? Well...no.
Which is to say, the bench isn't super metabolic...but there are pressing exercises which ARE metabolic, and can give you the same (or better) benefits.
OR...what if I told you that hallowed squat was not great for fat loss? Or, rather...that there were exercises that are way better?
So I'm not saying these exercises are "bad" -- I'm just saying that when it comes to fat loss, some are just better than others.
The key here is to pick the exercises that are going to help you get as metabolic as possible while still checking off all the boxes that you need for a complete program.
Today, I've got a great resource that will show you EXACTLY which exercises those are. It's another video from my friend John Romaniello--New York Times bestselling author, world-famous fitness expert, and creator of the soon-to-be-released OMEGA Body Blueprint.
For the past few days, he's been sharing some incredible knowledge via the Omega Body Fat Loss video course he's put together. It's 100% free, and it's just flat-out fantastic.
Today's addition to the course is no exception. In this video, Roman breaks down the TOP four types of exercises that all fat loss programs should focus on:
Open chain pulling movements
Explosive upper body pressing movements
Knee dominant single leg exercises
Heavy bilateral pulling movements
The video explains WHY, and gives specific examples of the exact exercises you should be using TODAY to burn fat and start building your Omega Body.
