6 Exercise Moves To Maxmize Calorie Burning

      The first thing we ask clients when they come to us is “what’s your goal?”  Most will say, “I want to tone up.”  OK people, lets get this clear; toning is just body fat loss!  Women tend to store body fat in between muscle as well as on the outside of the muscle.  However, me store fat behind muscle (hence the rock hard “beer belly”) and on top.  If  you are trying to “tone up” then you must lose body fat.  Body fat loss is just a matter of buring calories. 

      If you are going to the gym and you want to maximize your calorie burning, then you must target the biggest muscle groups (back, chest, legs, shoulders and abs since clients love to do abs).  The programs I design for my clients are based on their goals.  If I know they need to lose body fat then I make sure that they work these 5 areas to maximize their results.  Here is a basic sample routine….

 Lat Pull Downs

Obviously, this is a basic routine for beginners.  If you have time left at the end of your workout then you can add in biceps, triceps and calves.  For cool workout pictures like these go to www.fullfitness.net  .
