Fat Burning Home Workouts and Diet
Cardio workouts can be great for fat burning, as a matter of fact they are essential for fat burning but the way you're doing them is all screwed up. For starters, everyone seems to be missing the boat on what cardio really is. It's not a method to burn more fat or get tighter abs, rather it's a method to increase your metabolism and allow your body to better use the calories that you are eating. As a matter of fact, for fat burning cardio workouts to truly be effective you must actually eat more.
It never ceases to amaze me when I hear people talking about how they are training harder, doing more cardio, eating less but still not getting any fat burning effects. Lets think about this for a second. Most everyone agrees that you should eat a meal after you workout right? Most people don't even think this way they actually have no choice but to go home and eat after a hard workout. What if we did two workouts in one day or better yet two workouts back to back? Shouldn't we go and eat more?
Well that's what happens when we work out then go do our cardio workouts. Cardio is just a means to eat more calories and that should come as a very interesting piece of news to anyone who has been dieting with no gains and wants more out of their fat burning cardio workouts. Here's why
-After dieting for a few weeks our body responds by holding onto our fat. It's a means of survival. Our metabolism slows down and that isn't good for losing fat.
-Now our calories have been decreased even further since we are trying to burn fat but can't figure out why. We respond by increasing our cardio or the length of our weight training sessions.
-We continue to struggle dropping fat and add more cardio time.
Does this sound like something you've experienced? Well you are not alone since this is the most common thing that you will see with people who have trouble with their fat burning cardio workouts. So now what do you do from here? Please don't get frustrated or you'll end up saying that you tried but couldn't get that flat stomach.
In The Physique Formula I talk about exactly why you have those stubborn areas of bodyfat but it's important to understand that the best thing you can do is consume more calories.
If you want to enhance your fat burning cardio workouts you should
-Eat more healthy fat since our body will hold onto fat any chance it gets.
-Add some more carbs into your diet in the forms of fruits and vegetables. They'll give you more energy to increase the intensity of your fat burning cardio workouts.
-Alternate between high intensity and longer paced cardio. They both have different fat burning effects and work through two different ways. Why only do one? If you have the time add a day of longer paced cardio. Maybe go for a walk after work. This type of training will really increase your fat burning cardio workouts.

Fat Burning Home Workouts and Diet
Belly fat burning cardio workouts come in many shapes and forms. You don't have to go to the gym, use the elliptical machine or climb on a treadmill to burn stomach fat. In fact, there are a number of cardio workouts you can do in the comfort of your home which can help you shed a lot of belly flab. In this article you will learn about 3.
1. Jumping rope - An old classic and one of my favorite home workouts. What is simpler than jumping rope, right? Well, this children's game can also be a massive cardio workout. Jumping for even 5 minutes can lead to a tremendous fat burn. Also, jumping rope works the arms, legs, shoulders and even the abs as a stabilizing muscle, so you also get an abs toning effect while doing it.
2. Interchanging Step-ups on a stair - You just need one stair to do this or buy an aerobic step for close to nothing. Then, you just rotate your feet by jumping. One leg is on the ground while the other is on the step. Do it fast and you will quickly develop a nice sweat. If you perform this exercise quickly you will develop a good sweat within minutes. It's an even better belly fat burning workout if you hold a dumbbell in each hand. It makes it more intensive.
3. Punching bag - You may be surprised that using a punching bag can be a cardio workout but throwing punches at a bag while shuffling your feet like a boxer is an excellent full body workout. It's also one of the least boring workouts there is because you can pretend you're actually fighting. By the way, women also benefit a lot from this exercise. All you need is to plant a hook in your ceiling so you can hang the bag on it whenever you need to do a workout.
