There are loads of fitness workouts that help you lose weight. Some of the top fitness workouts are the ones that have originated from aerobics and cardiovascular type of workouts. We are looking for exercises that would increase the metabolic rate of the body and in the process burn more fat. The 10 best fitness workouts that burn fat in a speedy mode are the following.

1. Tabata interval cardio 

This cardio workout originated in Japan. Out of all the interval workouts that are available, this one is considered as one of the best to burn off fat. Every workout is supposed to be performed for approx. 20 to 30 seconds and then followed up by rest period of 10 seconds (also known as recovery phase). The exercises are supposed to be repeated at least 8 to 12 times in a session, also know as “a set”. We at MFW have put together a great 6 wks workout program using this exact cardio system.

2. Hill Sprints

Hill sprints are one of the best outdoor fitness workouts. It’s an intense workout to burn off fat in a speedy manner. 10-20 minutes a day and this workout can help you in shedding off the extra kilos in no time. The best part about this workout is that it can actually make you feel more energized rather than fatigued. Make sure that the posture stays in an optimal condition during the workout, as its common that to make the hill sprint easy you will find yourself leaning forward too much.

3. Rope jumping also called skipping

This workout is in no way less enjoyable than any other cardio workout when it is performed in combination with another exercise. For example 5 minutes of skipping and then alternating to side planks and then back to another 5 minutes of skipping. Doing this is a complete set of 10 to 12 times this workout can burn of anything up to 750 calories.

4. Weight Training

This workout works best for the people who want to achieve the goal of burning extra kilos fat and gaining muscle strength and vigor in return. Make sure that the weights you go for are not too heavy to begin with. In fact, if it’s just the fat that you need to burn off then lighter weights would work better.

5. Step aerobics

This is a variation of aerobic exercises that we oftentimes see in a gym performed in a group of people. All you need to perform this workout is a low-leveled platform. Or you can use the stairs of your home. Step aerobics is a mild form of aerobic exercise that can be practiced by people of any age. Start off by practicing on a platform that has a height of 4 inches. The height of the bench can be increased once you have built up a stamina/strength and you are planning to increase the duration of this exercise.

6. Side planks

This cardio workout focuses on the reduction of fat in the region of obliques and love handles. The overall body calories that are burnt off by this workout are incredible. Perform at least 10 to 15 reps every day.

7. Racquetball or Badminton

This is probably one of the most enjoyable high intensity cardio workouts with the added benefit of burning up to 800 calories an hour and you can use this along side your weekly muscle workout. The side to side running and jumping involved in this workout can help people with heavy thighs problem. But if you enjoy the game then this is most definitely is the cardio workout for you.
