The votes are in! Here are the best fat loss moves voted by me! Okay maybe it’s not very democratic, but seriously these are the best of the best. Check it out!

Best Butt Exercise – Single Leg, Single Arm Deadlift
They are a great way to target the hamstrings and the butt, with the added bonus of your obliques, lower back and calves. Plus it also works your balance!

At the gym these have the nickname “salsa deadlifts” because of the way we abbreviate it on our workout board (SL SA Deadlifts). Next time your at the gym, grab a dumbbell and try it out.

Tip: Don’t forget to use the hand that is opposite of the foot that is on the ground.

Best Fat Loss Diet – Carb Cycling
If there is one diet that has produced some amazing results for my clients it’s carb cycling. Your probably wondering what the heck is carb cycling? If you have ever done any kind of low carb diet you probably have already done carb cycling.

I’ve written a few posts on carb cycling. For more info check out these posts:

Best Fat Loss Workout – High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT)
This workout technique hides under a bunch of different names from metabolic conditioning to circuit training. Our joefitness bootcamps are entirely designed around HIIT. The best part about HIIT is the amount of time it takes to complete a workout. It’s very short. As little of 20 minutes of a HIIT workout can be effective.

The reason why HIIT is so good is because of the effect it has on the body after the workout. Your body goes into a high state of EPOC (Excess Post-exercise Oxygen Consumption) which is a fancy way of saying your body has to crank up your metabolism to recover from the workout. This results into some awesome fat loss results!

Best Workout Resource – 4 Hour Body
I’ll admit it appears to be a hefty read, but the information in it is fantastic. Tim Ferris put together a gem of a healthy living book. From the self-experiments to his slow carb diet, there is plenty of information that anyone can take from this book.

Tim has another book coming out on November 20th called the 4 Hour Chef. Don’t let the title fool you, while the book is focused on becoming a fantastic Chef, he is also covering his way of learning to become awesome at anything in a short amount of time. I have it pre-ordered and I plan on doing a full review post when I get it!

Best Fat Loss Lunch – Salads
If you read my blog, this one might be no surprise to you. Salads are a great way to get some solid nutrition without the impact of calories. A few weeks ago I wrote a post on how you can spice up your salads with ingredients you probably didn’t think of.

There you have it, the best of the fat loss moves. Maybe I didn’t cover anything, but I really thing these are some of the best things in the weight loss world. I hope you have a great Election Day!
