11 reasons to lose weight

The pros of weight loss extend far beyond being able to flaunt your new look in skin-tight jeans. Think:

  1. Glowing skin
  2. Relief from arthritis
  3. Improved moods
  4. Better memory
  5. Improved sleeping patterns
  6. Decreased risk of type 2 diabetes
  7. Lower risk of dementia
  8. Depression prevention
  9. Improved breathing
  10. Lower cholesterol levels
  11. Increased libido

The cons? You might have to go shopping for some fabulous new clothes to suit your smaller frame.

Swapping slow jogs for intervals and trading crunches for dead lifts are old news. If you want to lose weight and look gorgeous, look no further than the latest science

Do fewer reps - 15 ways to burn more fat - Women's Health & Fitness

1. Do fewer reps with heavier weights

Fewer reps with heavier weights equals a metabolic boost that outlives the increase from high rep, light weight workouts, according to the Norwegian University of Sport and Physical Education. To maximise the calories burned long after you and your gym bag have left the change room, shoot for three to seven reps.

2. Splice heavy and light

That’s not to say you should ditch the light weights altogether. While low and heavy hoists your afterburn, less pounds equals more calories burned during your actual workout, say researchers from the College of New Jersey. To get the best of both worlds, splice heavy and light routines – think heavy and three to seven reps one day, light and 10 to 20 the next. To make your workout multitask, cram both credos into one four-set session, allocating light and heavy to two consecutive sets each.

3. Push through the pain barrier

Next time you’re tempted to take a load off for minutes, not seconds, get back on the wagon (or bench press) knowing you’ll torch 50 per cent more calories than your loafing counterparts. Cutting rests between sets from three minutes to 30 seconds  increase calorie burn by 50 per cent, reports a College of New Jersey study.

4. Lift fast

The sense of greater efficacy during slow, controlled reps is purely psychological. Instead, make your reps rapid and explosive and reap the calorie burn rewards. The fast twitch muscle fibres engaged during fast lifts are less energy efficient than their slower cousins, meaning they chew through more fuel, according to Ball State University researchers. You’ll need a weight about 30 per cent of your 1 rep max (1RM), which means being able to lift it for 15 to 35 reps per exercise. Aim for four to five sets comprising two fast sets of three to eight reps, and two to three at normal pace
