Here are three simple and safe methods that will burn fat and work your entire body! These movements will burn a lot of calories, while pushing your heart rate sky high!

Burpees:

Burpee conditioning provides 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. Next, 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.

Dumbbell Complexes:

A Dumbbell complex is a form of circuit training. Three or more exercises are performed in succession, with no rest and also, not letting the dumbbell’s touch the floor! Here is an example of an intense dumbbell complex. Start with a pair of dumbbell’s and perform 6 reps of bent over rows, 6 reps of dumbbell squats, 6 reps of shoulder presses and finally 6 push ups! Whew…that’ll get your blood pumping!

Sprinting:

For body composition and health benefits, sprinting is one of the best habits to undertake. If you're just starting out, try performing 8 seconds of sprinting, followed by 12 seconds of active rest. You’ll repeat this for a total of 20 minutes or a total of 60 reps! Studies have shown this type of high intense routine leads to significant fat loss.
