There are many different kinds of workout routines. Some people run, lift, workout at home, etc. and every one of those options can be great. However, as a personal trainer I have found that there are certain workout routines that are more effective at fat loss.

No matter if my client is looking to lose 10lbs or 100lbs there are some similarities in which workout routines works best for fat loss. So, what kind of workout routines should you be doing?

The ultimate workout routine for losing fat is to do a mix of body weight strength training, weight training, and cardio. I think that everyone should add in body weight training as it is so important for strength, endurance, and helps you with weight training gains. Then, weight training in the rep range of 8-15 reps with heavy-moderate weights is the best way to build muscle, burn more calories, and ramp up your fat loss. Finally, adding in cardio, preferably in the form of HIIT and done early AM or post weight training will be the last piece in your fat loss workout routines!

I set clients up on a 2 day weight training, 2 days HIIT cardio, and 1 day bodyweight training for their workout routines. The cardio can be done after the weight training, or early AM any day of the week. The bodyweight training should be done on a non-weight training day.
Then you can focus on 2 heavy-moderate full body lifting days for maximum calorie burn during your lifting. You can add in 2 cardio days in the morning, afternoon, or post weight training depending on your schedule. Then, fit the body weight training between weight training session, and you don’t have to hit the gym to get that workout done.

Here is an example of a week of training from one on my clients, who happens to be a busy full time working Momma:

Monday – Cardio in the am, 20 minutes of HIIT on the elliptical she has at home
Tuesday – Heavy weight training for 60mins in the gym with me
Wednesday- 25 minutes body weight training done at home via T25 workout DVD
Thursday – Heavy weight training for 60mins in the gym with me
Friday – Cardio in the am, 20 minutes of HIIT outside as a run with the kiddos in the stroller

Here is another example of a week of training from one on my other clients, a busy full time teacher who also works on the weekends as a waitress:

Monday – Cardio, 30 minutes of HIIT via Insanity Max workout DVD
Tuesday – Heavy weight training for 60mins in the gym with me
Wednesday- 30 minutes body weight training done at home
Thursday – Heavy weight training for 60mins in the gym with me
Friday – Cardio, 30 minutes of HIIT via Insanity Max workout DVD

And there you have it! Two full workout routines, both that fit busy schedules and are designed to blast fat!

Now, it is important that you also stick to a healthy fat blasting diet to get the best results from your hard work. Healthy diet, combined with any variation of these fat blasting workout routines will leave you summer ready and fit in just a matter of weeks!
