How to Lose Fat Over the Weekend

Another weekend, another two or three pounds of fat? No way! Doesn’t have to work like that.

Here are two “real life” fitness techniques that can help you just say “NO” to gaining weight.

Weekend Fitness Strategy #1: Work out first thing in the morning.

There’s nothing magical about training first thing in the morning. I don’t believe it will help you lose fat faster than exercising at any other time of the day.


Exercising first thing in the morning gets it out of the way. And if you have a busy weekend coming up, complete with family visits and household chores, the truth is that the morning may be the only time you’ll get a chance to burn belly fat.

Weekend Fitness Strategy #2: Do short-burst workouts with multi-muscle exercises.

You can train your entire body with just two exercises. For example, you could perform a quick, powerful workout just by doing dumbbell squats and push-ups.

The dumbbell squat trains your upper back and your lower body. The push-ups obviously train your chest and arms, but your torso (abs) as well. That’s a complete workout right there.

Do 8-12 reps for squats and 15-30 reps for push-ups. Don’t rest between exercises and keep going for 10 or 20 minutes, whatever you have time for. That’ll hit all of your body’s hot zones.
