10 Top Compound Exercises to Blast Fat and Build Lean Muscle

Years ago I found myself weighing 250 pounds, constantly squeezing rolls of fat on my stomach, and just all around unhappy with myself in the mirror. Personally, I know what it feels like to suck your stomach in and wonder what it would be like to be shredded. Now, my job as a fat loss and fitness expert allows me to use my empathy and knowledge to train numerous clients and help them achieve unbelievable success in reaching their target body in my boot camps. It takes a lot of work and a lot of training. It has been proven again and again, the best training program for fat loss and lean muscle gain activates as many muscle groups of the total body in the shortest amount of time. While interval training is hands down the best protocol to use during an exercise session to build muscle and lose fat, compound movements efficiently provide total body workouts and give you an amazing boom for your buck in a single exercise.

Compound movements or combination lifts combine two or more movements performed uninterrupted and in succession into one exercise. For example, take two familiar exercises. The squat, which is notorious for its fat blasting and lean muscle packing effects. Now throw in an overhead press and the squat/press compound includes even more of your total body and becomes downright merciless. Simply put, compound movements explosively burn fat and build lean muscle because they activate more muscle in a shorter amount of time. Prioritize your personal workouts with compound movements like these instead of single joint exercises to supposedly "isolate a muscle" and your good to go. Remember this Power Body Reaction:

↑Muscles Involved�"(↑Calories Burnt + ↑Muscle-Building Stimulus )�"↑Fat Lost + ↑Muscle Gain

Confession time. I have a love-hate relationship with exercises like this. Love because of the ridiculous results they provide for fat loss, muscle building, and conditioning. Hate because they turn on that voice in my head saying, "Do you really need to do this?" and wondering whether I'm laying in a pool of sweat or tears every time.

By now your saying "Get on with it. I'm sold. What are these crazy exercises I need to be doing right now!?" Let's lift veil of suspense. Here is my official top 10 list of favorite exercises in the world for fat loss and lean muscle gain (in no particular order):

Importance of Hydration Especially During Workouts

An essential component of a fitness lifestyle is hydration.We require require water to transport vitamins and minerals throughout our body. Hydration also ensures the bodt doesn't over heat. Needless to say drinking water is a key to a successful workout.

Adequate water intake plays a major role in how women feel during and after the exercises. It is also important for the training performance and the overall safety during exercise. No mater whether the workout is aerobic or anaerobic one, such as in Women's Fitness Bootcamp's strength workouts' It's essential to consume water while on breaks to avoid dehydration.

Dehydration might happen when water intake is insufficient during intensive workouts. Due to the intensity of the exercises, trainees tend to quickly loose body weight through sweating, which drops the blood volume and might cause the heart to work harder pumping blood. In a sever cases, dehydration might include other symptoms, such as dizziness, muscle cramps, and fatigue. To avoid that, women must remember to drink a lot during and after the workout session, and not to do it only when they are thirsty. Often the workout is too intensive to get that feeling of thirst, so at Women's Fitness Bootcamp women have hydration timeouts to ensure proper hydration.

So how will one know she's adequately hydrated during the workout or afterwards? Doctors say there's several ways. For instance weighting yourself before and after the workout. There should be no drastic change in weight right after the workout' so less weight will indicate insufficient hydration. Such measurements of body weight before and after workout is also very useful for measuring the sweat rates and for customized fluid replacement programs. Apart from drinking water, consumption of drinks containing electrolytes and carbohydrates can also help maintain fluid electrolyte balance and boost the exercise performance. Another way is too monitor the urine color, usually after training. Women can check on their color. If it's light colored, it means the dilution is fine and hydration is also in control; if it's dark colored, women might not be properly hydrated and will need to compensate it by drinking! A good practice to follow is to drink about 15-20 fl oz, 2-3 hours before exercise, and drink 8-10 fl oz every 10-15 minuets during exercise. After the workout, a good practice would be to weight oneself and replenish weight losses if necessary. Drinking 20-24 fl oz water for every 1 lb lost, is the most effective water intake

Treadmill Workouts – Creative Treadmill Walking and Running Routines

The treadmill is one of the oldest at home workout machines around. Despite how long it has been in existence, it remains one of the best selling pieces of fitness equipment on today's market. Elliptical trainers, exercise bikes, and rowing machines have all found their own following in the at home fitness industry but none have been able to dethrone the treadmill. Why?

One big reason is because treadmill workouts are wonderfully simple. Treadmill walking or running is just like normal walking or running and takes no added skill or coordination. Another reason is that few workouts provide the user with more benefits than treadmill workouts. Because of recent technological advances, users can now get very creative with how they run a workout. Below are some examples.

1) Decline. Many newer treadmill models now come with a decline setting. You can simulate running down hill at a 3-5% decline. This is great for working a completely different muscle group in your legs. It's also great for extending the time of your workout because you can sort of catch your breath while still running.

2) Interval training. There is a lot of evidence that interval training burns more calories than regular workouts. What is interval training? It's switching between regular paced running or walking, and sprinting. This causes your heart rate to raise higher than it would from evenly paced exercise, thus causing your body to burn more calories. A treadmill allows you to increase and decrease your speed, and incline level to accomplish this.

3) Customized workouts. Many newer models come with pre-programmed workouts designed to give you the greatest benefits, and keep you entertained with a purpose, race, or goal to work for. They can be very motivating and can sometimes be the difference between working out or not, on days that you need a little motivation.
