Fat Burning Exercises

Fat burning exercises only exists if you know how to entice them. What I mean by this is, they don't actually exist. You can perform exercises that are best for losing weight, diet properly, and do cardio to help shred the pounds.

If you came to this page hoping to find tips on how to lose just belly fat, or arm fat, or wherever it may be, let me tell you something. You cannot lose fat in one spot. When you lose body fat, it is throughout the whole body. You cannot target one area alone. Don't you want to be proportional anyhow?

Understand one thing first. If you want to lose weight, your diet is the main factor that determines if you succeed or not. You can't just eat whatever you want, and expect to counter-act it at the gym, you won't get anywhere. You must eat healthy.

The best way to burn calories is on a piece of cardio equipment, specifically a treadmill. If you normally walk on a treadmill, try jogging for a short period of time then return to walking. This is called interval training, and it burns a lot of calories. For example, a beginner can walk for 5 minutes and then jog for 1 minute. Repeat this for a half hour. 

If you are a little more advanced and you usually jog anyways, then try sprinting. Jog for 5 minutes and then sprint for 1 minute. You can always adjust the times depending on your level of training. This method is very useful.


The best fat burning exercises are going to be compound ones, meaning they include several muscle groups. The more muscles working in your body at once, the better. Here are a few examples.


This exercise will target your back, quadriceps, gluteals, calves, and abs. It can be performed with dumbbells or a barbell. Beginners should seek guidance from a trainer or friend to avoid injury. This is one of the best exercises to burn calories because it is high intensity. Using your whole body takes a lot out of you because it is wide range of motion and your major muscle groups are being worked.

Fat burning exercises are great in the form of squats. You can use dumbbells, barbells, e-z bars, medicine balls, and more. It is a great leg workout and also very intense. Your legs are the largest muscle groups, therefore you will burn the most calories when you train them. Remember, when you burn calories, you burn them everywhere.

Clean and Press

This exercise is the true definition of a total body exercise. You will train your shoulders, quadriceps, hamstrings, gluteals, triceps, and calves. It is highly recommended to have somebody show you how to do this exercise. It has to be performed with a barbell, and takes strict form and practice to learn the movement. Once you master this exercise you will love it. After you are done with this exercise you feel like you have done your cardio for the day. It is very intense. The calories will fall off of you.

This is a simple picture diagram of a clean and press. Look at it from right to left, and picture the barbell in front of the man not behind him, it's behind him just to give you a better view. You start with the barbell on the ground, as you can see. Then it gets lifted to your upper chest (clean) and then above your shoulders (press). Be sure to have someone help show you how to do this exercise.
