High Intensity Fat Loss Workout

Today I want to share with you one of my favorite go-to weekend workouts.
I like this workout because it’s fast, productive and most importantly… it burns fat.
Before we jump into it, I want you to know that this workout can be fairly intense. You can however modify it to better fit your current fitness level (see my notes below the workout).

Here’s how it works

Combine 3 high intensity drills with 3 different ab exercises. Do each pair of exercises 3 times before moving on to the next.
Here’s a sample workout:
3 x ) 40 second sprint and 1 minute chin to shin situps…
Short break…
3 x ) 15 burpeess and 20 heavy weighed situps…
Short break
3 x ) 50 double unders (jump rope) and 1 minute high plank…
Note: If you’re looking for an affordable fitness jump rope | speed rope, click here to check out the E6 Speed Rope from Amazon
You could be done here unless you want some more…
Okay, so you want to finish strong
Then, go through all 6 exercises back to back… TWICE. You asked for it…

Notes & Modifications

High intensity drills such as sprints are not always appropriate for everyone. You can still take advantage of the above workout structure by modifying the workout intensity and time.
For example, instead of a high intensity sprint, you can go for a short 1 – 2 minute run.
Instead of burpees, you can perform jumping jacks.
As the intensity goes down, the duration should slightly increase.
Like always, let me know if you have any questions or comments below…
