Scott, what is the best weight training program to burn fat? Gyms are open in my area and I have some equipment at home that I can use. Are there any specific types of weight training that are better for fat burning vs. muscle growth? I want to prioritize fat burning! – Rachelle
Beach Strip Set Training can help you peak rates of fat burning for up 48 hours following each session provided the right recovery protocols are in place. Short rest periods and extended set durations help to boost fat burning hormones and burn a ton of calories during forty minute sessions. Controlling the repetition speed makes muscle work much harder while reducing shearing forces on joints.
Depleting stored carbohydrate from the muscles with Beach Strip Set Training can allow the body to use more stored fat as a fuel source. The 21 Day Fat Cell Cleanse Nutrition plan works synergistically with the Beach Strip Set Training to maximize fat burning hormones while forcing the body to use more stored fat as fuel.

Strip Set Executions
A strip set has two phases with 10 second rest between phases. Performing 8 reps of a standing biceps curl with a controlled rep speed will last about 35 seconds. Immediately reduce the weight load by 15% and do 8 more reps with the controlled rep speed to complete the strip set. The weight load should be very challenging and require you to stop one rep short of failure on each phase of the strip set. A couple warm up sets can help you establish the right weight load to use with proper form. There should be a gradual increase in weight load over the course of a 6 week training program phase which further boosts fat burning hormones.
Feel The Burn
The burning sensation you will feel within your muscles as you perform the strip sets is perfectly normal and indicates an increase in lactic acid. Lactic Acid is a precursor to growth hormone which is a perfectly natural fat burning hormone. The higher the lactic Acid, the greater the release of growth hormone all things being equal. This is one of the many reasons that progressively improving performance from week to week results in faster rates of body fat loss for my clients.
Stretching on off days is great for improving body composition, reducing the risk of injuries, supporting proper mobility, and lowering stress levels. Done correctly stretching can also aid in rates of recovery between weight training and fat burning interval sessions.
3 Beach Strip Set Training sessions per week to work different body parts is ideal during a 7 day week. On two other days of the week I instruct clients to do fat burning interval sessions followed by Afterburners to further ignite fat burning. A total of 5 week executed exercise sessions per week puts clients in an elevated state of fat burning throughout the entire week. Stringing together 6 consecutive weeks of proper weight training, fat burning intervals and afterburners makes a huge difference for rates of fat burning combined with the 21 Day Fat Cell Cleanse Nutrition Plan.
Make the Body Burn More Stored Fat as Fuel
Depleting the stored carbohydrate within the muscle, while keeping carb intake low with the nutrition plan, forms a powerful fat burning dynamic. The body likes to use carbohydrate as a fuel source especially when carbs are consistently available. Wiping out the stored carbohydrate within the muscles over the course of a few weeks can help to transition the body to using more stored fat as fuel. Relying on grass fed beef and other organic protein/dietary fat sources for energy is a powerful fat burning move!
