3-Simple Exercises That Shed Body Fat!
How-To-Do-BurpeesAll it takes is a few minutes of burpee conditioning to provide a butt kicking workout that blasts both your stamina and fat loss levels through the roof!
To execute the perfect burpee, begin by standing and then dropping into a squat position with your hands on the floor in front of you. Kick your feet back into a push up position and then lower your body to the ground (skip lowering your body if you cannot do a push up). To complete the movement, hop your feet back to a squat and then jump! Thats one rep…try 5 sets of 10 with 1-2 minutes of rest in between.
2. Dumbbell Complexes
