Looking for a core busting, metabolism boosting, strength building, fat blasting workout? Try this one, if you dare
You can boost your metabolism and your fitness with short but intense workouts
Here’s a glimpse into what my gym workouts look like these days. I did this workout earlier today and then took a couple of clients through it. Funny, they didn’t seem to enjoy it quite as much as I did. The entire workout, including warm-up and stretching afterward, took me less than 40 minutes.
Warning: This is not beginner friendly. You need a decent level of strength and fitness to do it. But if you have a good base, try it out.
This set warms up the body, lubricates the joints and prepares the body to work.
Do this circuit twice.
The focus of this set is to strengthen and activate the muscles around the trunk.
As the name implies, the purpose of this set is to build strength. Use as heavy a weight as you can while keeping good form. Ladies, you can lift more than a 5 lbs. dumbbell and not bulk up to the size of Arnold.
Repeat this set three times.
You’ve hit the core, built some strength and now it’s time to rev up your metabolism. This set incorporates a lot of work in a short time. Your heart will race and you will sweat! It will “finish” you off nicely.
Rinse and repeat three times.
Stretch all the major muscles, holding each stretch for 30 seconds.
And there you have it. Short and sweet. This workout won’t make you bigger (I don’t want to be a bodybuilder) but it will make you stronger, develop your core, improve your mobility and flexibility and increase your fat burning capacity. All in about 40 minutes. Do it two or three times per week.
