You have probably heard this phrase a million times – muscle burns fat. It’s true, but it’s not the only way to burn fat. Adding 10-20 pounds of muscle mass to your body is not the only solution to becoming a lean machine. One pound of muscle only burns an extra 50 calories off your body a day so you would need to add an extra 10 pounds of muscle to burn an extra 500 calories a day or 1 extra pound per week.
Don’t get me wrong – adding muscle to your body is an excellent way to keep off the fat but it’s not the only solution as many fitness experts would have you believe.
A key mindset in conquering the battle of the bulge is to understand that fat is stored energy. That’s it. Don’t give it the respect it deserves by labeling it with terms that imply it’s indestructible, stubborn and won’t go away. The secret is to accept the fact that burning fat requires a lot of quality energy expenditure.
That means you have to work!
Today I want to share two free weight training workouts that will teach you how to burn fat off your body, instead of attempting to starve fat off your body. The weight training workouts below will force your body to dig deep into your energy stores to get the work done.
You can rotate these two workouts every 24-hours to give you a feel of what I’m talking about. If you’re a beginner, 1-2 sets will work you. If you’re more advanced, you’ll need 3-4 sets or you can add this combo to the front or end of your current workout.

Here is a summary of the key elements in these two mini weight training programs:
-> create A LOT of lactic acid
-> create an oxygen debt
-> train while FATIGUED
-> prioritize compound and functional exercises
-> keep the weights as HEAVY as possible
-> keep the rest periods SHORT
-> aim for the upper end of the rep range
-> keep the volume and length of workout longer
-> pair up non related body parts each workout
Last summer I put together a revolutionary new system of 6 structured and progressive sweat-inducing, muscle-pumping workouts, designed to transform your stomach from soft and flabby to firm and cut in 6-months.

I recommend you try out the 3-Day Metabolic Boost Program before attempting the 4-Day Metabolic Extreme Program or the 5-Day Metabolic Overdrive Program. Each one is 16-weeks along and builds upon the previous phase in intensity and volume.
I, personally, used the 5-Day Metabolic Overdrive program in preparation for the World Fitness Model Championships last summer which helped me melt 23 pounds of fat in 8 weeks and look forward to every opportunity to hit the beach!
