Top Fat Burning Exercises for Men

Burning fat and building muscle are top priorities for many men who work out. Finding the right exercise routine can make the difference in your overall fitness. Circuit-training and strength-training exercises are among the best ways to melt fat. There are several different ways you can design your workout program to ensure it meets your needs.

Circuit-Training Exercises

Circuit training is a form of high-intensity aerobics. It includes a series of exercises such as squats, lunges and push-ups, performed in succession during a set amount of time. The authors of an article in the May/June 2013 issue of "ASCM's Health & Fitness Journal" -- a publication of the American College of Sports Medicine -- asserted that high-intensity circuit-training workouts can result in maximum results for decreasing body fat.

Strength-Training Workouts

Strength-training workouts can also improve your body's fat-burning ability. By using your body weight for exercises or by lifting weights, you can increase your muscle mass. Having more muscle allows you to burn more calories while at rest. Key strength-training workouts include push-ups, tricep dips, kettlebell swings and pull-ups.
