Last week we introduced you to Kransky’s Korner – a regular post to help encourage you to start getting into shape before the masses join the gym in January with their New Year’s resolutions.
With seven weeks until the end of the year it’s time to ask yourself what are your fitness goals? Is it fat loss? Is it building mass? Fitness regimens should be designed to help you attain your goals. Since most of you fall into one of these categories, this week we’ve focused on weight loss.
Fat Loss Regimen Work Out
3 – 4 sets with 15-20 reps.
Focus on 1-2 exercises per muscle group.
For each workout focus on a full body workout that includes chest, back, shoulders, core (abs), and legs.
Be sure to monitor your rest time allowing for 30 seconds to 1 minute between your sets.
For weight loss a higher number of reps is ideal because more time working, means more calorie burn. When you break down a muscle, your body burns calories to repair the muscle, that makes full body exercise (every muscle group worked in the same day) ideal. Working every muscle group in the same day will yield a higher caloric demand over the next 24-48 hours to repair the torn fibers. What does this mean? FAT LOSS! Keep your rest time short. Don’t worry, your body will be able to replenish quickly from higher rep ranges and it will keep your heart rate up. Over time, your endurance will improve – equating to greater weight loss.
