What are the best fat burning workouts for men?

Find Your Personal Trainer

We live in a world where most of us work sitting on a computer for eight hours or more. Even if we were active in high school and college, we tend to become a little lazy as we get older. That is why it’s important to stay active. Firstly, we want to stay healthy as long as possible. Secondly, we don’t want our back to hurt from not doing anything. And last, but not least, we want to maintain our figure or look even better than before. And the better and healthier we feel and look, the more chances we have in succeeding in everything else we try. Unfortunately, the weight problem is very common. Not only due to inactivity, but also due to a lot of stress we face every day. Finding out what are the best fat burning workouts for men will give you a great start.

Try these fat burning workouts for men and watch how you melt

As we know, nowadays the problem with weight isn’t something that is reserved only for the elder population. Many young people suffer from overweight. So, it’s important to not let yourself go, even if you already have a wife and kids. Especially if you have a partner and family. But most of all, you should take care of yourself for your own sake. Don’t let laziness get in the way of fat burning workouts for men that will help you feel and look better than ever. If you have a problem to find the motivation, you should hire a personal trainer in Dubai who will help you reach your goal. He or she will make sure to keep you focused and safe, so you can relax and just follow instructions.

How do you burn fat?

In order to burn fat and lose weight, you need to control two main hormones. You should decrease cortisol, which is a stress hormone. And you should increase anabolic hormones. The good news is that when you optimize your anabolic hormones, cortisol will naturally decrease. Because they act in opposition to each other. To make your body produce these hormones in the right way and amount, the trick is to repeat compound movements.

Of course, your trainer knows this, so he or she will push you in the right direction. Many people fear the cost of personal trainers, especially in the Middle East. But you don’t have to worry, just look for affordable trainers in Dubai who can get you where you want to be. Find someone who will motivate you, support you and make you move your boundaries.

Suggestions for the best fat burning workouts for men

We can divide exercises into three types:

  • running and other cardio workouts,
  • walking with weights,
  • exercises for throwing out aggression.

It is awesome that there are so many variations of these workouts, so it never has to be boring. And a good trainer will make you love your workouts even if you hate them sometimes. Make sure to incorporate your nutrition for weight loss in your daily routine. You should also consult your trainer about that and the results will motivate you quickly.

Running and other cardio workouts

Cardio workouts are the best fat burning workouts for men and everyone else. Running is always a good idea, but sometimes the weather conditions don’t allow it. Especially if you are in the middle of the desert. Of course, you could always use the treadmill, but if you are already in the gym, why not try something new? Any exercise that requires intensive work will increase your heart rate and burn fat. Jumping rope is an excellent way to warm up, but also to burn calories. If you decide to go on with boxing or some other self-defense class as a workout, that will benefit you very much. But even if you stick to just any of the variations of jumping rope, you will sweat and burn fat.

Running is always a good idea, but you should also try some substitutes

Besides running and jumping rope, you can do lateral toe taps, lateral shuffle taps, fast-feet drops, and suicide sprints. They are all variations of running and/or jumping in a small space. Try to push yourself to always do more than you think you can, and results will start showing very soon. That’s why is good to have a personal trainer, who will not let you stop when you get tired.

Burpees are in the league of their own. This is a full-body exercise, with multiple movements. It includes hip-hinge, plank, pushup, squat and jump, so what more can you ask? It may be monotonous sometimes to go up-and-down, but make no mistake – there are no much better fat burning workouts out there.

Walking with weights

Here we are talking about dumbbell Farmer’s walk. It may look like you are doing only your hands, but don’t worry, you are doing a lot more. It’s good for strengthening your spinal and hip stabilizers. You already know how to walk, so you can’t really mess up this exercise. It also increases your stability, and it’s always good to train for carrying all those groceries, right?

After you finish the Farmer’s walk, you can continue with walking lunge, which is similar, only harder. That doesn’t come as a surprise when you hear that it involves lunges. Which means more pressure at your legs than walking. And if you are wondering whether to choose a male or a female personal trainer, don’t think that if you hire a female, she will go easy on you. No, sir. She will push you to your limits and even more. Of course, any good trainer will push you just enough to make you progress, but not enough to make you hurt yourself. So be careful, open your eyes and ears to avoid injuries. And if you are tired of weights, try some bear crawl, also a great exercise for a whole body. Which will be the only weight you carry in this case.

Exercises for throwing out aggression

Of course, a good run will help you let go of the stress and aggression. Any kind of sport will do that, actually. You can even go to the best Pilates classes in Dubai to relax and forget about the stress. But, if we are talking about fat burning workouts for men, we have to mention mad ball slams and battle rope wave. Names are speaking for themselves. These two exercises are great if you are really mad at someone. So much that you feel you could punch them. Well, instead, why not throwing all that anger out in a gym? On a ball or a rope which are made for that. Just make sure you are supervised by your trainer, we want to avoid all possible uncontrolled movements and injuries.
