    I've started going to the gym recently, and I'm wondering what are the best ways to burn fat? I currently go to the gym three times a week. I take a Zumba class for an hour, then afterwards I'd use the treadmill, elliptical trainer or stationary bike for thirty minutes.

    I have lost some weight since I began going to the gym a month ago, but I'm wondering if there are other ways or things I should do to continue to burn my fat?

    I burn fat by converting H55 C104 O6 into H2O and CO2.

    Ride dicks in the locker room. It's good for the quads and will burn calories. Just use a condom or you'll end up absorbing calories.

    A lot of weight loss is in the kitchen. Other than that, run on the tread mill. HIIT burns a lot of calories. Also, high-reps less weight is better for weight loss. That is what worked for me.

    I have my doubts about high reps low weight. I dont think 10 reps of 135 will be more effective than six reps of 225. If youre going to go witb high reps make sure you are just barely getting to that last rep with as best form as possible. Maximum muscle destruction.

    High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) will help burn calories in the gym and for up 90 minutes afterwards. I recommend a 3/6/21 routine. You run for 3 minutes at a good pace then for 15 seconds run as fast as you can. Do 6 intervals for a total of 21 minutes. I use an elliptical machine though any machine should work. You could even do this routine outside.

    Insanity, p90x and spinning are other HIIT routines.

    This video is a perfect example how facts can be used to lie. His show looks like a magic act and it actually is. His fossil fuel statement is the dead give away . Petroleum 5 miles under the earth crust did not get there because living matter died. That is a huge myth. Petroleum is a mineral just like any other in the earth crust and was formed when the planet condensed from cosmic dust. Chemical reactions don't just happen they either need energy or produce energy when the chemical bonds are formed or broken . Heat energy is exchanged just to change phase. . This rates with the solar cell highway as being total BS.

    Adding a short kettlebell circuit to your training plan would mix things up nicely and help to burn fat

    Sprints
    Spinning
    Basketball (full court fastbreak drill)
    Jump rope

    Everything high intensity in terms of cardio

    Compound exercises (weighted dips/pulls/chins, trap bar deadlift, reverse dumbbell lunges, barbell stepups)

    Since the gym has a multi-purpose room where I go. I have an option to do parkour and freerunning.

    also squash and swimming.

    The OP lives in Little Rock, Arkansas which is very conservative and religious. Riding dicks in the locker room will not go over well and could get you in serious trouble. You might get away with that in Montreal, Canada but in more conservative US locales like Little Rock AR, Memphis TN etc., you could end up getting your ass kicked.

    I came out of the closet in 1991 in Prescott Ar, ~100 miles SW or Little Rock. I visited Little Rock often because my aunt lives there, and she's the most progressive and open-minded of all my family. My experience of Little Rock was quite uplifting, cause it seems to be the 2nd most progressive place in Arkansas (Fayetteville being the first).

    Basically aerobic exercises. Find out your aerobic heart beat range online. It should be 70-80% of your max HR. Exercises such as hiking or walking for more than 25 minutes burn fat (of course you can go hiking at the gym). Don't do anaerobic exercises. This is a huge mistake everyone does. Anaerobic exercises are things like sprinting. In that case it burns sugar (ATP), not fat, then causes hunger immediately. If you're going to use a treadmill just make sure your heart rate is within range.

    My secret to staying slim is pretty hard to do, but ultimately the most effective. Done right, you don't have to diet or do cardio. All you need is -genetics-. That's the secret.

    Such bad advice. Horrible.

    Read up on HIIT, and fat loss methods for metabolic activation.

    Resistance training is essential to any weight loss / body composition program.

    Higher intensity provides better long term metabolic activation without invoking the famine response.

    Fast weight training along with start stop activities could well mean you need to do no steady state cardio, at all. This science is all well documented by countless university research programs. Think fast weight training, red line sports / cardio (think basketball, soccer, hockey played right, sprints) are exceptional for body re-composition and cardiac training / cardiac improvement.

    You can improve your EKG in as little as 7 4 minute sessions weekly. It's THAT good. The advice above (in the quote) could not be more incorrect.

    Note that sudden death syndrome is highest in folks that do long time steady state cardio. Cardiologists believe it's from long term low grade trauma to the heart.

    If you're above 25, you should have your testosterone checked. Normal to high levels of test reduce your risk of a serious cv event by 57%. AHA 2014, American Society of Urlogists, JAMA, American College of Cardiology 2014-2015. Their European counterpart found 56% in 2015.

    An hour spinning and an hour's run at full speed on the Tread-Mill. Then take 5litres of Iced Water and ask the Gym owner to lock you in the Sauna for the rest of the day. Trust me, you will come out a bit dehydrated but you will be pounds lighter.

    I lost 18 pounds since memorial day by a combination of weight training, cardio and changing my diet. I already ate pretty clean but had to cut out milk and most cheese because I was having trouble with my stomach, and that was apparently causing a lot of bloat. I don't want to lose much more poundage but want to put more muscle on and get leaner.

    A friend who does some personal training suggested a relatively brief period of interval training before and after weight training, so after a 5K next month I am going to try that in combo with ramping up my weight training a bit.
