So, you want to lose belly fat and chances are, you want to do it as quickly as possible. We got your back. We've designed a free workout to show you how to lose belly fat by activating fat burn across all the biggest major muscle groups in your body. This is achieved by combining heavy resistance high-intensity interval training with powerful plyometrics.
Resistance + Plyometrics: The Belly Fat Burning Power Couple
You probably already know by now that lifting weights helps you gain muscle, which in turn helps you burn more fat since muscle requires more energy to maintain than fat. So, instead of the calories you eat being converted to fat, they are used to fuel those strong, sexy muscles of yours.
You can't spot lose weight, so instead of training muscles in isolation (which definitely has its time and place), to burn more fat from your belly and all over your body, we use compound movements, which work multiple big muscle groups at once.
The next part of our belly fat busting equation is the plyometrics. Plyometrics involve using explosive, intense movements to increase your power, speed, and muscle tone.
Muscles that are stretched then contracted with intensity will performing each rep with max force, and the more force you use, the more muscle you build and energy you burn. Examples of plyometric exercises include box jumps, jump squats, skipping, switch lunges, and clap push-ups.

For now, let's get back into the meat of our FREE belly fat workout.
So, you have the compound lifting movements and the plyometrics. Next, we wrap these two components up in a high-intensity interval training (HIIT) pyramid workout. HIIT has been shown to burn more fat and build more muscle in less time than steady-state cardio or traditional weight lifting alone, making it the preferred method of millions to shed fat fast.
Read more about the benefits of HIIT here.
Pyramid workouts involve structuring the training so that your first interval or set of reps is the longest or highest, and then you gradually work your way to a small amount of time or reps. This helps you mentally stay motivated, since nothing will be as intense as that first set, and physically, it helps you avoid fitness plateaus by challenging your body with a different type of training.
