“Hey! What’s going on? It’s Ian Hart here at EarthFIT blog and I am going to explain to you about the science behind what gets amazing results, that allows for massive fat burn. Let’s look at how the body and movements work.
– SINGLE JOINT EXERCISES. Single Joint Exercise would be Curls, Tricep Extensions, Shoulder Raises, Leg Extensions, Leg Curls, Etc.
Activates one muscle at a time. There might be synergizer muscles that are included in that group but, you are essentially burning minimal calories. It’s not affecting the blood in your body or cardiovascular system and it is just focusing on that one area. Now, that can get you results, but it takes a lot more time and repetitions.
– MULTI JOINT EXERCISES, e.g. Push ups, Squats, Deadlifts, Walking Lunges, Rows, Push-ups, that’s just a name of few and there is a few more.
Multi-Joint Exercises are going to activate a lot more muscle groups.
Think about it: your bicep, it’s a small muscle that you are activating. When you do a squat-to-a-row (multi-joint exercise), you are activating your muscle, your bicep, but you are also activating your whole back. Next to your legs, your back is the largest muscle group . So when you do a squat to a row, you are activating your legs, your back, and your biceps, along with other small muscle groups and the core in between, everything all those muscles in between. So you’re literally activating your whole body and burning more calories. Whereas with a Single Joint Exercise you’re activating one.
Then we have FULL BODY JOINT EXERCISES, Squat to press, Snatches, Cleans, Lunges, Lunge-to-Row. These are total body workouts and are obviously multi-joint.
So just think about how that translates into a training program. If you stand around doing a curl, how many calories are you burning? Or, if you do the squat to a row, how many calories do you burning? Then there are a lot of other variables that go into how much weight you use. It is a whole process that’s allowing for your hormones and your circulation to allow for fat loss and fat burning.
So this just gives you idea of how Single Joint Exercises versus Multi Joint Exercises work. Full body, Multi-Joint Exercises will give ten times to a hundred times more results than ever just doing Single Joint Exercises. So if you are looking for fat burning and fat loss and getting the most and out of a training program then obviously Full body Exercises are going to be the best bang for your buck always and forever.
