Gaining lean muscle mass and burning fat simultaneously is on the bucket list of nearly every individual on the planet who cares about their health and appearance. But to almost every one of those individual’s dismay, it is not as easy as it seems. Fat burning and gaining lean muscle mass takes patience and effort. It is as if you are raising a child, the only irregularity being, the child is you. The entire process takes into account various factors and several aspects into consideration. The process is far, far away from anything ‘easy’ or ‘convenient’ and demands a commitment to one.

For those who actively want to take steps towards a better future in terms of health and happiness, and achieve the physical fitness of their dreams, it is a matter of time before they make it happen. But the active variable remains the same, that is, hard work. Nothing works until you do. Even the best fitness trainer cannot be able to help you if you do not take charge of your life. For those who really want the change, here is a guide to the most effective fat burning exercises that will burn those love handles off of you. Have a read!


If there is a list of fat burning exercises, and it does not have burpees, it is not really worth anything. Burpees just had to be on the list and that too for a very good reason. Do a couple of burpees and you will know why! Burpees incorporate the entire system of fast twitch muscle fibers IIa as well as fast twitch muscle fibers IIb. Fast twitch muscle fibers are used for powerful and high-intensity activities that require a massive burst of energy. Fast twitch muscle fibers can also perform in the absence of oxygen, that is, anaerobic activities. 

Mountain Climbers

Mountain climbers incorporate your core to an extreme level. A good set of mountain climbers will never end up in relief, instead, it will end up you begging for some pain killers because your core will be burning. A number of calories burnt in a good 3 to 4 sets mountain climbers are hefty. Make sure you emphasize the movements on the abs and keep your back stiff.


I get this question a lot and my answer is always the same. People ask whether there is any alternative to sprinting or running. The answer is no. I know it is tough and strenuous but that is exactly the reason why it is good for you. Remember what doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger. In order to keep the heart rate running and also get regular rests, keep sprinting till you lose your breath and then follow it up by a slow jog. Resume the sprinting again when you regain your stamina. This will keep the heart rate up in the blaze and burn calories in loads.

Shadow Boxing:

Now, this one is a tad bit tricky. Shadow boxing is not something you see everybody doing on a regular basis. You need precision and accuracy and of course, the proper technique. Through constant practice, you will definitely nail it and once you do, you would be glad that you did. Shadow boxing burns a tremendous amount of calories in a very short amount of time. Start with the regular jab and the straight right and progress with the various combinations as you move up the ladder. Try and do 3-minute rounds and take a rest of 1 minute between rounds.


This one made it to the list as well. Although I personally am not a big fan of cycling, it does help burn calories and lose weight if done correctly. I am not referring to cycling along the meadows with your buddies and having a nice time. I am referring to high-intensity interval training that involves you to do 10 seconds of rapid fast cycling with all the energy you have got and the following it up by 60 seconds of rest.
