A lot of readers ask me which workout is the best for weight loss – Spinning? Pilates? Weights? Running?
Truth is, the best workout for long-term results is the one you love the most and will be most consistent with. That said, if you want results fast, a combination of weight lifting and HIIT is going to give you the best bang for your workout buck. This gal is living proof and those results are based on 5 weeks of working out only 4 days per week! ???
HIIT & Weight Training For the Ultimate Metabolic Burn
Weightlifting is something you’ve heard me go on and on about. It’s critical for helping you shape and tone your body. If you’ve got a lot of jiggle you want to get rid of, this is going to help. The best part about this combo of weight lifting and HIIT training together is that it helps combat trouble areas like belly and back fat, not because of spot reduction (because we all know that’s not a thing, right?), but because it improves your metabolic efficiency and insulin sensitivity which will help with abdominal and midsection fat accumulation.
In other words, if you want to lose the belly and fat back you’ve been accumulating, this is the best way to do it in the least amount of time possible.
Here are the details on the LIFT 4 Program
- The Lift 4 workout is 8 weeks long and it’s only 4 workouts a week. A game-changer for those of you who don’t like 6-day per week schedules or that like to add in other workouts to your week.
- The workouts are only 30 minutes, so it won’t take much time and of course, you can do it at home.
- The program combines Weight-Training with HIIT, so you will need a few sets of weights (I recommend a set of 10 and 20lb weights), a set of resistance bands and a foam roller. I recommend buying them from Amazon as it’s cheaper than purchasing them through Beachbody.
- The nutrition is a non-diet approach that will allow you to say yes way more than no??. I love that!!
Listed below are the options in an easy to digest format. Note that the program isn’t available until July, but if you buy it now, you’ll get early access bonus workouts that you can start on right away! If you don’t buy now, unfortunately, you will have to wait until October until it’s officially released.
You can get all the product options here, but I really don’t think you need all the bells and whistles to get the most out of the program. Just the basics that I’ve listed below. Save yourself a few bucks and get your weights and roller on Amazon.
Which Lift 4 Option is Right For You?
