Ultimate Fat-Burning Workout Plan to Shed Pounds & Inches- 3 Min Read

Do you want to know how to lose weight and sculpt your body at the same time? Follow this Ultimate Fat-Burning Workout Plan to Shed Pounds & Inches. This workout plan consists of 5 days on and 2 days off. It requires access to a gym. Anyone can follow this program, and you can go at your own pace.

My clients with a main goal of fat loss follow a similar plan to this one. It is designed into two upper body days, two lower body days and one day that focuses on just cardio. One of the upper body days and one of the lower body days also require a bit of cardio (so 3 days of cardio, total).

What makes this a fat burning workout? First of all, you will find compound lifts (squats, dead-lifts and bench press) integrated into each day. Compound movements burn more calories. Secondly, we’ve incorporated active rests. This means that you are ALWAYS doing something. You’re never just sitting there. In between sets, you will perform one of the selected active rests for 30 seconds before moving to the next set. This keeps your heart rate up and the fat melting! You will want to choose a moderately heavy weight to complete the number of reps assigned.

You can repeat this plan for 6 to 12 weeks. When it starts to feel easy, up the weight and/or increase reps.

We must keep in mind as always, that consistency is key. Weight loss requires effort, but it doesn’t have to be complicated. We will include instructional videos for each exercise on the next page. Ready to get started?!

Day 1: Lower Body

Active Rest: Kettle Bell Swing or Mountain Climbers
