5 Best Exercises to Help You Burn Stubborn Fat
Do you know those people who exercise every day, but don’t seem to lose anything? Or maybe you’re one of them. Lots of work and no results is really deflating. Chances are, you’re either not eating right, or you’re not getting the right burn.
So how do you know if you’re getting the right burn? Let’s just say, you’ll feel it. If you are working out and you’re not feeling challenged, you’re probably not getting a good enough burn. You need to have an intense workout that combines cardio with weights. Combining these two will maximize your burn and help you burn calories and stubborn fat for up to 48 hours after your workout. Don’t rely solely on how much you burn during the workout, because if you’re doing it right, you’ll be burning more throughout the day.
At KUBEX Logan, Utah health clubs, we offer revolutionary, state of the art advanced technology and equipment to help you get that burn. Whether you’re a professional athlete, serving in the military, a college student, or a stay-at-home parent, you’ll ‘feel the burn’ and see real results using our equipment for just 30 minutes a day, three days a week.
These are just a few of our favorite total body workout exercises:
1. Flexline Dynamic Cable Machine
The Flexline Dynamic Cable machine is awesome and one of our favorites amongst our clients. It allows you to get into position without wasting any time adjusting weights–that’s because this machine uses compressed air. Simply increase or decrease your resistance with the push of a button on the side of the cable pulley using the ‘smart handles’, and the weight is added within seconds. It’s that easy! You’ll see on a digital screen how much the weight equates to.
This machine can provide you with a great upper and lower body workout. Work your arms, shoulders, lats, chest, and back through several different movements shown to you by the digital animation. Or work your legs, quads, and core through several other movements. It’s so versatile that whatever you decide to do, you’re sure to get a great total body workout with it.
2. Farmer Carry Treadmill
The Farmer Carry Treadmill is a self-powered inclined treadmill that focuses on strength, endurance, and cardio. The shock-absorbing deck makes it easy on your joints so you can walk, run, sled push, or do a farmer carry while building speed, agility, and power. Because of its versatility, it will give your whole body a great workout.
By simply adjusting your hand position when performing a sled push, you can get a great upper body workout–your triceps, biceps, back, and chest. Adjust the resistance to challenge yourself and help you get that burn.
You can also walk backward to engage your lats and shoulders, and if you want to work the obliques, do a one-arm carry. The magnetic resistance will help you build stability and strengthen your quads, hamstrings, glutes, and calves.
3. Live Axis High Pull
Another great full-body exercise is the Live Axis High Pull machine. Using continuous motions, you can build your upper body, strengthen your core, improve stability, and prevent unnecessary injuries.
Sliding pulleys follow your movement, giving you increasing resistance and building ideal muscles throughout the workout. Specific exercises (like Cable Chop, Standing Row, Tricep Extension, Lunge to Rows, Swing Ups, etc.) can strengthen your back, shoulders, and arms and will really target the muscles in those areas.
4. Matrix Treadmill
The Matrix Treadmill helps you gain power and build strength through a series of exercises on an inclined treadmill. A resistance belt on the machine both challenges you, and improves your form through a variety of movements.
You can build speed and agility through reverse, lateral, and forward movements, all while improving your endurance and power. The inclined platform allows you to drive your legs upward, giving you a great lower body workout. Or, detach the belt for a sled push and work the upper body as well.
The resistance belt is also great for supporting you as your walk/run backward for another form of exercise.
5. FreeMotion Lift-Step
The Lift-Step helps you train the muscles in your legs, arms, and back to improve your overall strength through a series of lifting and stepping on an adjustable platform.
Use the rotational cable pulleys to target upper body muscles through a free range of movement. Utilizing the pulleys with the stepping and lunging off the platform will work for multiple muscle groups, engage your core, and give you a total-body workout.
Several exercises can be utilized with the Lift-Step. Step-ups, side step-ups, deadlifts, bicep curls, etc. will maximize the burn and build your muscles.
These five exercises are going to give your whole body a total workout. They combine intense cardio with weights and will work multiple muscle groups, helping you burn that stubborn fat and keep it off. These, and many more exercises, can be found at KUBEX.
