The vast majority of the people who step into a gym are trying to drop body fat. And seeing how I practically live in various gyms, that means most of these people tend to ask me a basic question:
Should I be doing strength circuits?
I really like doing curls. Do I need to give them up on a fat loss program?
Should I start doing more cardio?
They’re all different, but they all boil down to this basic question:
Should I be training differently for fat loss?
And the truth is, at the most basic level, things don’t really change much when it comes to getting jacked, getting strong like bull, or melting body fat to show off your abs. You still need to be lifting heavy weights with plenty of compound moves, a few isolation moves, and you need to switch things up every 4-6 weeks or so to keep adapting.
