How To Lose Fat For Beginners
Are you a true beginner
looking for simple ways to lose fat? Beginners need to approach fat loss a little different than someone who
has repeatedly tried to lose weight in the past. Why? Because you're different. You want to
achieve success early and quickly and keep progressing.

I train a lot of newbie’s in my training studio. By that I mean I train a lot of people who
have never exercised or worked out before, never paid attention to their diet, and have never really given
much thought to ‘how to lose fat’ in the
Or another type of fat loss beginner is the person who has tried a couple diets in the past
on the recommendation of a friend or colleague, or may have joined a gym a time or
two, but never stuck to anything because they didn’t really understand what to do.
These are my favorite types of clients to work with because they’re a blank slate, plus
they’ve been exposed to so many types of myths and misconceptions that it’s fun to see their reaction when I start
telling them the truth and why they’ve been lied to.
So, what do I tell my beginners?
When it comes right down to it, how to lose fat for
beginners really focuses on the basics.
That may not be sexy or glamorous, but it's what works and what gives you the best chance of quick results, and
the opportunity to build on those results and keep moving forward.
It’s all about cleaning up the diet and focusing on the basic fat loss exercises and
progressing on from there.
All too often I see and hear of clients that want to know how to
lose fat starting off too intensely or trying to do too many things at once and they quickly burn out and

The next thing a beginner needs to focus on when it comes to how to lose fat, is sticking
with the basic fat loss exercises first before trying anything more advanced.
Stay away from the isolation movements like lots of crunches, sit-ups, biceps curls and
triceps exercises and instead stick to full body fat loss exercises like push-ups, squats, and planks.
They will deliver a lot more fat loss bang for your buck and strengthen up all the weak
points that fat loss beginners have.
Here’s an example of a 10-minute workout for
Warm-up for 2 minutes by doing a circuit of jumping jacks and medicine ball chops.
Then perform the following circuit 2-3 times.
1A) Push-up (or kneeling push-up) – 8 reps
1B) Bodyweight Squat – 10 reps
1C) Hip Extension – 10 reps
1D) Plank – 15-20 seconds
1E) DB Rear Flies – 10 reps
Perform that fat loss workout for beginners 2-3
times a week for 2 weeks, along with some extra mobility movement to help loosen up and strengthen your hips and
shoulders, while also cleaning up your kitchen, and then move on to something different.
