4. Yoga Fatloss
Most people naturally assume they should be doing cardio on their off days to encourage fat loss, which is actually not the most effective choice. In fact, the absolute best option is something you might not expect: YOGA.
Yes, yoga! I know, you’ve probably never considered yoga as a fat-burning tool. You might think that yoga is lame or isn’t really effective for building lean muscle or losing fat—but I want you to think again.
Yoga isn’t just stretching, and it isn’t always slow. It can be challenging and fast paced, and can even help burn a ton of calories. You’ll challenge your body in far different ways than you would at the gym, and it’s that kind of diversity of movement that will really help take your fat loss attempts to the next level.
Yoga is, without a doubt, the perfect way to add low-impact, high-yield exercise into your routine on days when you aren’t hitting the gym. It’ll help you to recover from intense, metabolic resistance workouts, and won’t steal from the energy necessary to crush it at the gym
