I'm a Trainer, and These Are My 8 Favorite Exercises For Losing Fat and Building Muscle
As you've more than likely already heard, there's no quick scheme to losing weight. It takes a lot of dedication, consistency, and hard work to achieve your weight-loss goals. Everyone's weight-loss journey will look different, and if you're wanting to incorporate strength training into your routine to lose weight — which I encourage you do — there are a few exercises you should absolutely do. And one type of exercise in particular — compound exercises.
Compound exercises work more groups of large muscles, like squats and push-ups, eliciting a greater energy expenditure to help your body burn more calories and body fat. You don't have to do these moves every day, but incorporating them into your strength-training program will allow you to lose fat and build muscle simultaneously.
