5 High-Impact Workouts to Melt Fat Away: Achieve Your Leanest Body Yet!

Here are five effective workouts designed to help you burn fat and get lean quickly, tailored for an Indian audience. These routines have been provided by fitness experts Julian Smith and Taylor Chamberlain, and they cover various muscle groups and body parts.


**Workout 1: Glute-Ham Lower-Body Blast**


Looking to shed body fat? This workout focuses on targeting glutes and hamstrings to help both women and men achieve a leaner physique.


**Technique Tips**

- Barbell Good Morning/Back Extension: Keep your spine straight, and hinge from the hips during the barbell good morning. For back extensions, engage your glutes by tucking your chin and rounding your upper back.

- Standing Calf Raise: Achieve a full stretch at the bottom of each rep and avoid bouncing to lift yourself back up.

- Barbell Hip Thrust/Single-Leg Hip Thrust: Use two barbells to switch quickly to a lighter weight for the single-leg version. Keep one leg lifted off the ground during the exercise.

- Single-Leg Deadlift: Keep your non-working leg straight and lift it up and out behind you as you descend. Maintain balance and focus on your standing leg.

- Smith Machine Reverse Lunge: Utilize the Smith machine for stability, allowing you to concentrate on the leg action.

- Wide-Stance Barbell Squat: Lower yourself into the squat slowly for a count of four seconds, aiming for thighs parallel to the floor.

- Single-Leg Hamstring Curl: Adjust your body on the leg curl machine for single-leg curls to avoid undue stress on your knee.


**Workout 2: Back, Traps, and Core Routine**

This high-energy weight-training session focuses on the back, traps, and core, working synergistically for optimal fat burning.


**Technique Tips**

- Deadlift/Wide-Grip Pull-Up: Increase intensity by reducing rest time between supersets. Focus on maintaining correct form and proper cadence during exercises.

- Front Squat Push Press: Select a weight suitable for pressing, and complete the reps with proper form.

**Workout 5: Chest and Shoulder Smackdown**

Use this routine for your chest and delt workouts during lean-out mode, focusing on shorter rest periods to boost fat-burning.


**Technique Tips**

- Pressing Movements: Gradually increase weight, aiming for failure before 10 reps in the final set.

- Incline Dumbbell Press: Use a neutral grip to target the pectorals differently.

- Flat Bench Dumbbell Press: Ensure a deep stretch at the bottom position to engage the chest muscles fully.
