today i'm gonna do something i've been wanting to try for a while now and that is devoting a weight training session for fat burning.
basicly the idear is you choose one compound movement for upper body and one compound movement for lower body and you do them for high reps (probly 12-20) and one right after the other as a superset. you could also do low reps for one movement and high reps for the other.
hang clean and press/front squat for 5 or 6 supersets
to me it makes a lot of sense and it should work quite well because i think the weightlifting approach will put my body in a more anabolic state, as opposed to just running which i think puts you in a more catabolic state. this should make it easier to hold onto muscle and also by lifting weights and using my muscles i am giving signals to my body saying "hey, this muscle is important! don't break this down for energy" and encouraging fat oxidation hopefully. also combining upper and lower body movements should really send a shock to the CNS.
so just wondering what are your guy's thoughts on this...
yay or nay?
