Published: April 6, 2020

To be honest, it is much harder to find time to exercise than the actual workout. It seems like we constantly have a number of tasks to complete and their number does not seem to lessen. However, this does not mean that you should remain inactive. Even if you are in no position to exercise for approximately one hour, feel free to workout 20 or 30 minutes by practicing a fat loss workout routine. The results will come by themselves and you will notice this soon enough. So, here are some examples of bodyweight workouts for fat loss. Make sure you do all of them and you will be more than satisfied with the results.

You can do bodyweight workouts for fat loss at your home

The most important thing you should always bear in mind is that you should use the right exercises, at the right tempo, and sequenced properly in a good workout structure. This is the best way in which you can do several exercises and reach your goal. Once you start doing them, you will realize that a fat loss workout is fun after all. However, before you start, you should focus on several things.

Before you start working out, make sure you get the right tempo

First of all, you should set up your bodyweight workouts as circuits, supersets or tri-sets. In addition to this, you should also limit the amount of rest between exercises and sets. Yet another thing to think about is using proper ‘tempo variation’ as well as using big movements that recruit more muscle.

What are circuits, supersets, and tri-sets?

If you have been exercising, you are probably already familiar with these terms. However, if this is not the case and you are starting to workout, here are some guidelines. First of all, a circuit workout is when you take any number of exercises, sequence them one after another and add limited rest in between each. Then, a superset is pairing two exercises that involve non-competing muscle groups or movements. For example, these can be push-ups and pull-ups. A tri-set is the most demanding way of exercising. Basically, it consists of three exercises and moving from one to another with limited rest. Once all three of them are complete, you can repeat the sequence for the required number of sets.

Do not forget to limit the rest

Since your goal is to burn more fat, you should limit the rest between exercises. There is no need for you to spend hours doing cardio if bodyweight workouts for fat loss have the proper structure. This means, if you are a beginner, you can get a little bit more rest between exercises. But if you are not, you should definitely limit your rest. You should not worry if you are huffing and puffing while working out.

Limiting rest between exercises is of paramount importance when bodyweight workouts for fat loss are in question

This is normal and it is a sign that your body needs more oxygen to do the work. The more oxygen you consume, the more calories you are going to burn- it is that simple! This is precisely the reason why you should limit your rest. Of course, you should not avoid resting either- it is also not a good idea. Just make a balance and everything will be fine.

Workout exercises, part number one

These exercises are known as the beginner circuit. Start with it and only after you have finished it you can go to the example number two. What you should do is to perform 30 seconds of one exercise followed by 1 minute of rest. When the rest is over, go to the next exercise and have a rest when you finish it. Once you complete all of the 8 exercises, rest for 2 minutes and then repeat for a second set. The exercises are the following: step-ups, plank, Bulgarian lunges, dead bug, burpees, single-leg drop squats, push-ups, and mountain climbers.

Workout exercises, part number two

After you have finished your rest of the 2 minutes, it is time to start with the intermediate circuit. Now, things are a little bit different. You should perform 30 seconds of one exercise and rest for 30 seconds. Then, move to the next exercise and so on.

Plank is going to be part of your exercise routine

When you finish with all of the 8 no-equipment exercises, rest 1 minute and repeat for a second set. The exercises you will be required to do are the same as in the previous part. The only difference is that you will have to restless. Just remember that this is a good thing, that you will get to burn more fat this way and it will be much easier.

Workout exercises, part number three

The last part is also known as the advanced circuit. This means that this part is the most demanding one, but you need just some more mental strength to finish it. During this part, you will repeat all the exercises you have done before. However, now you are going to do one exercise for one minute and you will rest for 30 seconds. Once you finish all 8 of them, rest one minute and repeat everything. These fat burning workouts for men and women are more than efficient. You will get to feel better the very next day.

We have shared with you some bodyweight workouts for fat loss. Now, everything is up to you. There is nothing to be afraid of- these exercises are not that hard to perform and you are not going to need any kind of equipment. Just find a room where you will not get distracted and start working out. Remember that you should pay attention to your rest and to hydrate yourself enough.
