Gain Muscle, Lose Fat With These Tips

By Genevieve Cunningham

It's time to get fit. You may tell yourself this very phrase from time to time. We all want to be fit and healthy. We want to feel strong and confident in our own bodies. But actually accomplishing this, actually feeling good about the way that we look, is a really tough thing to do. The truth is that feeling good in your body boils down to two things: losing fat and building muscles. Sounds simple, right? If only it were that easy! If you're ready to get fit and feel good about your health and overall fitness, take a look at these tips for losing fat, gaining muscle, and feeling your best starting now.

Time Your Workouts

A well timed workout can really impact your health. If you work out too late in the day, it can give you a boost of energy and impact your sleep. And when we don't get enough sleep, it's hard to lose weight. If possible, work out first thing in the morning -- even before breakfast. This allows you to take advantage of the natural fast that happens overnight, potentially losing more weight and improving overall health. 

Add Heavier Weights

Heavy weights make a bigger impact than almost any other type of exercise. Yes, cardio works. Yes, light weights can help. But heavy weights really challenge the body and force your body to burn more calories in order to keep up. You can add weights into your normal routine, or you can add an entirely new routine that focuses solely on lifting weights. Just make sure that you do this step with proper form and safety in mind. Weights can be dangerous if not done properly, and so full attention to detail is necessary. 

Do Complex Workouts

High intensity interval workouts can be a great way to get fit. These kinds of workouts involve various intervals of intense exercise followed by a short rest period. You'll burn massive calories, especially since the rest periods are so small in comparison to the workout period. The workout will likely challenge your muscles, leave you sore, expand your stamina, and ultimately leave you in better shape than ever before. 

If you want to feel your very best in your body, you'll definitely want to be fit and healthy. And that means you have to build and strengthen your muscles while burning that excess fat. It sounds difficult, but it doesn't have to be! Use these tips to help you on your fitness journey so that you can start feeling better in your own skin as soon as today.
