More FAT LOSS and MUSCLE BUILDING workouts – http://athleanx.com/x/bestworkouts
There are many options when it comes to workouts to help you burn fat or achieve a certain fat loss goal, but without one component they can very seldom be effective at this. I’m talking about whether or not the workout has built in challenges to ensure that you’re giving your best effort so that getting to your fat loss goals not only happens more quickly, but happens at all.
In this video, I show you an example of a home fat loss workout challenge that you can do, as you would guess, at home without having to be a member of a gym. The exercises included in this fat shredding workout are as follows:
Mountain Climber Burpees
Plyo Inverted Rows
Sprinter Lunge Leaps
The instructions for getting the most out of this killer workout challenge are to start by completing 5 reps of each of these fat burning exercises without rest. Once you do this you should repeat this fat melting circuit workout again, except this time for 10 reps apiece. You should continue to repeat the circuit workout, each time increasing the number of reps for each of the fat burning exercises by 5.
See how high you can score on the workout. The higher you get the better chance you have at burning fat and experiencing faster fat loss since the effort will be your highest in order to do so.
This is just one example of the type of workout challenges that are in the ATHLEAN-X training system. You can get a complete 90 days of workouts and challenges just like this to help you build lean muscle and burn stubborn body fat at the same time.

3 Fat loss exercise tips for women over 40
Although Boomer Fitness is located in Vancouver, Washington, I like to learn about what others in the field are doing. On several fitness workshops that I have gone to I have run into Shawna Kaminski, who owns a gym in Calgary and is one of that city’s top fitness trainers. One of the things I respect most about her is that she lives what she preaches.
Recently, I got a chance to interview Shawna and get her take on how females can best go about staying fit over the age of 40. She was happy to share her top three recommendations for this, which include:
1. Giving up cardio as your number one weight loss tool. Most people don’t realize it, but cardio will raise your stress levels, as well as your cortisol. This is going to keep you from reaching your weight loss goals. If you can do more interval-based cardio, including springs, jump rope, mountain climbers, and yes, even burpies, you will have a more successful time trying to lose weight.
2. Start lifting weights. Now you may be thinking that you don’t want to do that because you will become big and bulky, but I want you to understand that is not going to happen. Becoming big and bulky is really hard work, it’s not what you will be doing. Look at Shawna in the video. She does weights 4-6 days a week for years. Does she look huge and bulky? Not a chance! Women just don’t have the hormones to be huge. You can add muscle and it will jump start your metabolism. Plus, you will love the new toned up look it gives you.
3. Watch your diet. Avoid the “see food” diet, where you eat whatever you happen to see. Instead, opt for keeping a food log, watching your portion sizes, and eating more nutrient-dense foods. Also, make sure you are getting enough calories so you are not walking around hungry.
There you have it, the three key principles that Shawna follows herself in order to stay lean, healthy, and fit. These are things that you can easily do over 40 that will keep you healthy, fit, and loving life. It’s important to see that what you have been doing all along hasn’t been working. Making some changes, like the ones listed above, is what will help take you where you want to be. If you don’t believe me, try one of our fitness challenges and see for yourself. My guess is you will love the way you look and feel after eight weeks of this approach and want to stick with it for good!
