Get Ripped Workout
Contrary to the belief that high reps and low weights will tone the body, high weights will actually help you burn fat. Heavy lifting burns more calories and triggers muscle growth. More lean muscle means that you’ll have a faster metabolism and burn fat at a higher rate, even while you are resting. One trick you can try here is to reduce the rest periods between sets while still trying to lift relatively heavy weights.
