1. Start your exercise routine with a cardiovascular workout such as running or biking. This will help you to get your body’s heart rate up before you start your weight lifting routine.
2. Choose two weight lifting routines to perform in succession and make sure that you are picking two exercises that work out different muscle groups so as to not cause fatigue in one muscle area. For example, if you want to do preacher curls (a bicep workout), then your other exercise you choose should be for your legs, triceps or any other muscle other than your biceps.
3. Finish one set of weight lifting for one muscle group and then immediately move to another part of your weight lifting routine that will exercise another muscle group.
4. Repeat the sets between both muscle groups without resting in between. This keeps your heart rate up and the calories burning.
5. Continue this pattern until you have completed your workout routine.
Conclusion: The moral of the story is, if you are overweight and just starting your training routine, rest very little in between sets if you are serious about using the weightlifting as a means to shed the excess pounds. Â This is just a brief cut and dry example of how to burn fat while weight lifting.
