When it comes to losing weight fast, increasing your daily calorie burn should be the number one priority. If you have a great nutrition plan for weight loss set in place, then boosting your metabolism by performing additional calorie-burning workouts is the best way to double—even triple—your weight loss! And boy, do we have just the fat-torching routine for you. Keep reading if you want to triple your weight loss and see noticeable results.
The following workout is focused first and foremost on increasing the calories you burn, so it focuses on high-intensity, full-body exercises in addition to aerobic activity. Each exercise should be performed for the prescribed amount of time—30 seconds on, 30 seconds off—switching exercises each time and working up to a total of five rounds. These movements will be followed up by 15 minutes of aerobic exercise.
Be sure to drink plenty of water before and during your workout if you tend to sweat a lot. Completing these exercises is definitely a great way to shrink excess body fat for good. Perform this routine three times a week for an effective fat-blasting, calorie-torching workout to triple your weight loss!
Burpees are a metabolic conditioning favorite due to the explosive, full-body nature of the exercise. Work to keep a steady pace of burpees for the full 30 seconds of working time on each round.
To perform this exercise, begin standing with feet hip-width distance apart. Explosively drive your legs and feet backward as you drop into a pushup position. Upon reaching the floor, explode upward using the momentum of the movement. Work to find a rhythm where each burpee flows into the next. Perform this exercise for 30 seconds.
Split jumps are an explosive lunge variation where you jump up at the top of the lunge, switch feet mid-air, and land in a lunge position with the opposite leg forward. This will hit your glutes, quads, and hamstrings for a massive calorie burn.
To perform split jumps, begin standing with your feet hip-width distance apart. Step back into a lunge, lower about a quarter of the way down, then explosively jump using the front leg for power. In the air, switch the front leg to the back and vice versa. Absorb the landing in a lunge position with the other leg forward. Drop into a quarter lunge as you absorb the impact, then repeat. Work to find a rhythm where each jump flows into the next. Perform this exercise for 30 seconds.
Mountain climbers are a core exercise that can be performed fairly explosively, hitting the abs and hip flexors while maintaining a good calorie burn rate.
To perform this movement, begin in a pushup position. Bring one knee forward, keeping your foot just off the ground by flexing at the hip. When your knee is roughly under your mid-torso, return to the starting position. Repeat on the other side. Work to find a rhythm where each mountain climber flows into the next. Perform this exercise for 30 seconds.
Adding 15 minutes of cardio after your circuit is a way to get extra calorie burn while reducing the buildup of stress on your joints. Keep the intensity moderate and aim for a difficulty of a six or a seven on a 10-point scale. Acceptable forms of cardio include: jogging on a path or treadmill, cycling, swimming, rowing, using the elliptical, or doing the stair climber. Regardless of the method you choose, maintain the discussed intensity and work for 15 minutes minimum of extra cardio after each workout.
