If you’re on a get lean plan, make sure you’re completing exercises in a series, where you move from one exercise to the next without a break. In this way, your heart rate will stay elevated throughout your workout while you build muscle at the same time.
What Workout Strategy Should I Use for Lean Fitness?
The best workout for lean fitness is to exercise different muscles in the body, moving from one muscle group to the next without rest. That way, you’re still working out and keeping your heart rate elevated while one muscle group rests — and you’re working out the other.
3 Move Exercise Routine to Get Lean
Here’s a quick 3-move workout for your get lean plan that will torch fat and get you shredded quickly. You don’t need to spend hours in the gym. What you need to do is up the intensity and cut down the rest time. Follow along with a lean body app to help you get focused. Follow these 3 lean body moves:
1) Ball Touches: Get onto the ground and lift up your back to a 45-degree angle, with your butt touching the floor and your knees bent slightly and elevated off the ground. Grab a 5 or 10 pound medicine ball and hold it with both hands. Touch the ball to the ground on your left and then right side, repeating 20 times. You’ll feel this burn the abs and obliques
2) Pull-Ups: There’s simply no replacement for the traditional pull-up if you want to build lean upper body mass and get in a great cardio workout at the same time. Knock out 8 and then move to the triangle push-up.
3) Triangle Push-ups: This is a twist on the traditional push-up. Put your index fingers together and thumbs together, forming a triangle. Complete 6 push-ups with this hand position, and you’ll notice a greater burn in the front shoulder, traps and inner pectorals.
Complete a series of these 3 moves, moving from one move to the next without rest. Complete 3 series total, or more if you can, and begin to experience your full body transformation.
