6 Smart Ways Trainers Switch Up Their Exercise Routine When They Want to Lose Weight
"When I lower my caloric intake to lose fat, I like to perform heavy weight, low-rep strength training to remind my body to keep as much muscle as possible," says Tony Gentilcore, C.S.C.S, cofounder of Cressey Performance in Hudson, Massachusetts.
Gentilcore says he also tries to keep his heart rate up during the workout to burn extra calories and increase the afterburn effect. "For example, at the end of my strength workout, I’ll push a weighted sled for 20 yards as fast as I can, then perform 10 kettlebell swings, and rest for 30 seconds," he says. "I’ll do that whole circuit five times."
"I can get my heart rate up a lot higher on the stairmill than just about any other piece of aerobic equipment at my gym, meaning I can burn more calories in less time," says strength coach and dietitian Marie Spano, R.D. C.S.C.S., C.S.S.D., sports nutritionist for the Atlanta Hawks. "Research shows that these high-intensity intervals increase post-exercise calorie burn and, during the ‘rest’ periods, break down fat," says Spano.
