Fat Loss Circuit Training Workout

May 25, 2008
Today I'd like to give you an exciting full body workout that will burn tons of calories and leave you feeling great in just 40 minutes. So if you want to burn fat, tone up, and get fit then this workout is for you.
Another great advantage of this workout is that all you need to complete it is a set of dumbbells, a stability ball, and a step. A cardio machine is advised for your interval training component.

The fat burning workout I'm about to provide you with is an example of the type of circuit training workouts that are a key component of my Fitter U fat loss fitness program.

So here's how it's going to work. We're going to take 6 exercises and set them up in a circuit training routine. For each exercise you will be completing as many repetitions as possible in a 30 second time period. After each exercise you will then rest for 30 seconds before moving on to the next one. Once you've completed the entire first set you can then grab a sip of water and rest for 1-2 minutes.

After your 1-2 minute rest period, you will then choose a cardio machine and perform 5 minutes of intervals. The interval training component is a great way to spike your metabolism and burn further calories in just a few minutes. For these intervals you will be working hard for 10 seconds and recovering for 50 seconds. This will be repeated 5 times for a total of 5 minutes.

For instance, if you are on the bike you would pedal as fast as possible (at a good resistance) for 10 seconds and then follow that with a nice and easy 50 second recovery. Got it? Awesome!

Both the circuit training and interval training sequences are repeated twice.

So here's how the workout structure will look:

Warm-up

5 minutes light cardio

CIRCUIT 1 (30 sec. work, 30 sec. rest)

Standing lunges Plank Step-ups with biceps curls and shoulder press Push-ups Stability ball crunches Ball squats (against wall) with biceps curls

Rest 1-2 minutes

INTERVAL TRAINING 1 (10 sec. hard, 50 sec. recovery)

Rest 1-2 minutes

CIRCUIT 2 (30 sec. work, 30 sec. rest)

Standing lunges Plank Step-ups with biceps curls and shoulder press Push-ups Stability ball crunches Ball squats (against wall) with biceps curls

Rest 1-2 minutes

INTERVAL TRAINING 2 (10 sec. hard, 50 sec. recovery)

This entire workout should take you no more than 40 minutes.

Give it a shot and experience the Fitter U difference.
