If you're a beginner or have not worked out for a while and six days of lifting sounds like too much too soon, do not worry. In a previous interview with POPSUGAR, Stephen Cheuk, a certificate from the IV Australian Institute of Personal Trainers and founder of S10 Training in NYC said it began with two strength sessions a week, gradually working your way up to three sessions a week.
What Exercises Should I Do To Lose Fat?
To lose body fat, you've got to hit the weights, and you're going to want to train at least two times a week. If you're wondering which exact exercises to do, Dr. Harrison recommends compound exercises. Why? Because they're multijoint movements that work for large groups of muscles and generate higher energy costs. This means that you have to work harder to perform them, and as a result, your body will burn more calories and fat. Exercises like barbell back squats, deadlifts, walking lunges, bench presses, and pull-ups are all examples of compound exercises.
At the end of the day, you'll have to pay attention to how your body responds to both strengths. training and cardio. You may need to tweak Dr. Harrison's recommendations, and that's OK. If you're looking for more guidance at the gym, try our four-week muscle building workout plan.
