When you’re traveling or have limited equipment to train with, it’s tempting to default to bodyweight exercies, cardio or to skip your workout all together! That’s not the compromise you want to make if you want to truly reach your strength potential. To help you reach your personal goals, let me simplify strength training so that all you need is one simple piece of equipment: a barbell. Doing these five compound movements with the barbell will functionally challenge your muscles, joints, and balance all at once.
Start by using an empty bar to ensure you are comfortable with the range of motion of each exercise. How to: With your feet shoulder-width apart, rest the barbell on your traps and grasp the bar with both hands facing forward and the elbows pointing down.
Keeping your spine straight and core braced, first push your hips back, then bend your knees. How to: With your feet shoulder-width apart and the barbell in front of your body at your clavicle, grip it with your elbows pointed down and forearms perpendicular to the ground. Taking care to pull your chin back a little (to avoid smacking it with the bar), drive the bar upward in a straight line, locking out the elbows. What To Do For This Workout: Complete each exercise for the recommended number of repetitions. Sign up and we'll send you the latest recipes, menu plans, fitness tips, and workouts each week.
And before you say that's garbage, let me immediately give you the science behind my statement.
On the contrary, if you want to gain muscle mass you MUST eat slightly more calories than you burn. Since there is NO WAY you can be both at the same time, there is NO WAY that you can gain muscle and burn fat simultaneously. As I said this type of muscle gain while (most likely) deficient on calories may happen only in the beginning and only until the body adapts to the new stress.
If you are still reading this article I assume you are pass that point, so like I said this occasion shouldn't concern you. The second occasion is if you (well, not you of course) use banned medication of some type (steroids, hGH, IGF-1), which may cause muscle mass gain in a state of negative calorie balance. What happens in reality is instead of gaining muscle mass, or in other words increasing the circumference (or the number) of contractile tissue, you increase the water content in the muscle fiber. No matter what season it is, everyone is looking for that magical way to burn fat and build muscle. Our body is designed to be efficient but it is not so simple and so there is no single answer to weight loss and muscle gain.
We can, however, aid the process of fat burning and muscle gain through controlling our diet and supplements, understanding our different body types and by investing in high intensity, heavy hitting sessions. One is an HIIT session, which has been proven to aid fat burn and be more efficient than longer sessions at moderate speeds. The other two sessions are weights based and are split into an upper body session and a lower body. These again are designed to give you ideas and for you to experience a different type of training. Just like with any other training session or exercise related activity, please exercise safely and modify any exercises if injured or new to high intensity training. If you still have some strength left, apply the battle ropes challenge from the HIIT routine for a great finish.
You can perform all leg exercises together and then all core exercises together OR alternate between legs and core, depending on your time for working out and what fitness level you are at.


These sessions are high intensity but will ultimately help shed any unwanted fat whilst building strength and muscle tone.
Whether you train on your own, with friends or are helped by a wonderful trainer, these sessions will help you get those fitness goals happening!

It's harder to build muscle and burn fat first of all, because our body doesn't respond like when we were 18.
When you are older it takes longer, it takes much more dedication to achieve your goal, and a lot more motivation. They can slow you down, but won't stop you from getting what you want: build muscle and burn fat. You can just think of going to the gym, do a bunch of exercises and then go for a beer with your friends. Diet is always the most important thing, that where your calorie intake comes from, and the quality of those calories. If you don't eat right you can imagine how hard, if not impossible, is to build muscle and burn fat. Eating right will definitely help you burn fat indirectly, this is a fact, so promise yourself that you will start a healthy diet! You have to exercise properly, go to muscle failure each set, do compound exercises and do short training sessions and check your testosterone levels. So many times I heard people saying "I don't want to build muscle, I want to lose weight, not get bigger!". One person can weight as much as a much bigger person if he has a muscular body and the other one is fat. So you understand that you shouldn't really look at the numbers on the scale as long as your body shape looks good. One very important aspect of fat loss is that building muscle helps burning fat even without spending boring hours on a treadmill.
Strength training works better than aerobics for getting fit and burning fat because building muscle helps raising your metabolism rate. If you follow a correct workout program to build muscle you will see fast body changes because muscle is what shapes your body.

I want to explain a few secrets of endurance training by answering some fair and common questions about it. As the temperatures start to get pleasant, it gets harder and harder to drag yourself to the gym to get the exercise you need.
Before we analyze the HIIT training benefits, I'd like to spend a minute explaining what HIIT is.

Here are Melissa’s thoughts on the efficiency of the barbell, which allows for strength training with just one piece of equipment. Pause when your butt is just below parallel with the floor, push through your heels, and rise to starting position.
Once the bar clears your head, bring your chin back to its original position so the barbell is right above your head or even a little further backward.
We support all athletes and active living people whatever your dietary preferences, although we will always do our part to raise awareness about the benefits of vegetarian or vegan options.
For this reason, and because I am sick and tired of answering this question over and over, you are going to encounter the simple truth right now.


In other words what goes in your body in terms of food and calories MUST be less than what you burn throughout your day.
To some degree, I repeat, to some degree you may see muscle mass gained and fat being burned at the same time in only two occasions. Both of these ultimately produce a short term hypertrophy (muscle mass gain) in the beginner.
Any way, like I said that was just for your information, so that you don't get to ask this question again next time you see someone bulking up (or at least that's what's appearing on the surface) while getting leaner at the same time. Up until this moment science (still) has not given us a straight and useful answer of the question how to build muscle and burn fat at the same time. In the past I have it set out in a circuit format although the structure can be altered as long as the partnered exercises are performed together.
With personal training being her passion, she has expanded her skills in to group fitness, small group training, nutrition, health seminars and coaching. She has also graduated from Swinburne University with a Bachelors Degree in Business specializing in Sports Management. The body we used to have when we didn't even care of what we were eating or doing to stay in shape. Eating right doesn't make you burn fat directly, but at least it doesn't make you store more fat, and it helps you build muscle, which helps you burn more fat like we're going to see in a while.
You can't build muscle if you spend 2 hours at the gym every day, or if you go and just "lift some weights". It is the way to burn fat after workout, even while you sleep because after HIIT (High Intesity Interval Training) your body keeps burning fat for up to 24 hours due to an increased metabolism rate. I became a fitness passionate during the last 10 years, where I learned a lot by studying and also through personal experience. Cookies are files stored in your browser and are used by most websites to help personalize your web experience.
Keeping your wrists straight, shoulder blades contracted, engage your glutes, and drive your heels into the floor throughout the movement.
Brace your core and pull your elbows toward the ceiling, bringing the bar to your lower chest. Bend your knees a little and your hips a lot as you grasp the bar just outside of your legs. By combining moves that increase the heart rate with strength training exercises, the result is a workout that burns calories and builds muscle. And guess what happens later on when you (actually not you, may be someone else) get off of the "stuff"?
Once you know for sure, go for it and don't let any distractions and uninformed thoughts get on the way. Base your reps and sets on 3 sets of 12 reps and begin with a weight you know you can push or pull 12 times.
Lift the bar and bring it down across your sternum so that your arms are at about a 45-degree angle from the chest, then exhale pressing the bar back up to starting position. Brace your core and lift the bar by squeezing your glutes, thrusting your hips forward, and pulling your torso back and up. Your body type, metabolism and hormone balance play an important role on which you don't have so much control.
I, too, thought and hoped that I can shorten my way to a better body by shedding fat while building muscle at the same time. It’s not a squat, it’s a hinge movement, so the hips should be above the knees and the torso should be at about a 45-degree angle to the ground.
