Here’s a fat blasting workout to guarantee the scale moves to the left rather than the right while enjoying your favorite bar-b-que.  Give it shot and good luck!  Happy Memorial Day to you!

Warm-up: 5 min jog

Equipment needed: timer (watch)

You will perform the following 3 exercises for the stated amount of reps.  Here’s the twist…You must complete the 3 exercises in one (1) minute!  At the top of the minute, you need to start again- Every minute on the minute!  Perform 8 – 10 minutes of this.  Depending on your fitness level, allot yourself more time and/or reduce rep count.

  • 5 Burpees
  • 10 Spiderman planks
  • 15 Squat jumps

Rest 1-2 minutes

Next up, we have some interval running where you raise the intensity for a period followed by lower intensity.  You will repeat this pattern for stated time and distance.

Mark approximately 30 yards whether block to block or marks in the sand at the beach.  You will run that distance, touch the ground, and return to your starting point (approx. 60 yards total).  You will alternate between high intensity run (there and back) and a recovery, low intensity run (there and back).  During the high intensity run, you want to be approximately 75-85% maximum effort and approximately 50-70% maximum effort during the recovery run.  You will perform this for 3-5 min

Rest 1-2 minutes

Again, you will perform the following 3 exercises for the stated amount of reps.  Here’s the twist…You must complete the 3 exercises in one (1) minute!  At the top of the minute, you need to start again- Every minute on the minute!  Perform 8 – 10 minutes of this.  Depending on your fitness level, allot yourself more time and/or reduce rep count.

  • 5 Push ups
  • 10 Lunge jumps
  • 15 Mountain climbers (left/right = 1 rep)
