Hello

I know there is alot of stuff out there regarding fat loss etc etc.
But i was wondering if you dont want to gain muscles or get bigger, should you do high reps with low weights to just train the muscles to burn calories?
Will this help you to achieve your goal faster? or what is the best way to achieve it in regard to weight training.
I know ofc you have to dial in your calories of food etc but here im just talking about the training part.

If you want to lose weight the best way to work out would be the way of bodybuilding.
You can simply use compound movements and do like 2-4 sets of 8-12 reps of each.
Workout whenever you feel all recovered.

The rest is all nutrition.

Don´t try the high rep crap, it won´t work. You could add a little cardio but that really isn´t necessary.
Take a look at some natural bodybuilders (know some of them german ones, fortunately). Their training doesn´t alter at all when losing weight. Also they don´t gain muscle during fat loss. But they lose fat fast as hell! So the best thing to do is to copy their training principles.

Have fun reaching your aims! :)
