If you are looking for a workout program that will help you not only to burn fat but also to get stronger and build muscle, we suggest you try the 5x5 workout from Stronglifts. After thousands of people have tried it they all agree that this program is an easy and very effective way to change your body and the quality of your life.
The 5x5 workout is easy and you only have to do it three time a week, for 45 minutes. The five free weight compound exercises are:
• the Squat
• Bench Press
• Overhead Press
• Barbell Row
This is how it works: you do three of these exercises, for about 45 minutes, for three times every week. Also you must Squat every workout. The name of the workout means five sets of five reps. The only exercise that you will not be doing only one set of five reps is the Deadlift because doing more would exhaust your body. Squatting three times a week will also help you with your Deadlifts, because both exercises train the same muscles.
