What is the best training method for fat loss: high reps or low reps? Do higher reps create better fat loss?
What’s up live leaners…lets get to today’s Live Lean TV episode.
I see this all the time, especially from my Live Lean ladies. I’m talking about performing excessively high reps (sometimes in the 25-50 rep range) in hopes of burning more fat.
Sure, you may feel like doing 50 continuous reps of an exercise may burn and make you sweat like crazy’¦BUT, trust me’¦
This rep range DOES NOT work as well for FAT LOSS, as the 8-12 rep range, otherwise known as the hypertrophy range.
Always remember this’¦
YOU NEED TO BUILD MUSCLE to maximize your metabolism.
Regardless if you’re a guy or a girl, muscle is the metabolic driver. The more you have, the more calories you burn, thus the less fat you store.
Muscle is also the key to staying and looking young.
And I have to always say this’¦
LADIES’¦YOU WILL NOT BULK UP.
Your body doesn’t naturally produce the amount of testosterone required to get bulky!
…hypertrophy zone (8-12 reps). Depending on the tempo (the amount of time it takes you to lift, lower, and hold the exercise), each set should last between 40-70 seconds.
Focus the majority of your lifts on compound exercises (like squats and chin ups) that work your biggest muscle groups. This will create the greatest calorie burn and maximizes the golden ticket to leanness’¦ the AFTERBURN EFFECT…how sweet it is!
