Best Exercises For Fat Loss

A Trainer Says These Are the 8 Best Exercises For Fat Loss

A post shared by Rob Allen (@roballenfitness) on

Whether your goal is to lose fat or you want to strengthen your muscles, you might think you need to do different exercises to achieve each. Personal trainer Rob Allen posted this photo to his Instagram account to show that whatever your goal, "Whether you want to lose fat or gain muscle, strength training is extremely important."

As you can see from the above exercises, they are the same for either goal. And they're also the same for both women and men. Rob said, "Never be under the impression that a certain exercise is only for girls or guys or only for losing weight or adding muscle."

These are some of the most basic and most effective exercises you can (and should) be doing. "Keep in mind that these exercises can be interchanged for other variations," Rob said.

Rob added, "Of course you're more likely to see girls doing hip thrusts and guys doing bench press, but that doesn't mean they shouldn't be doing both." It's OK to focus on different body parts (yeah booty gains!), just remember "you shouldn't completely neglect other parts."
