Fast Workouts To Help You Lose Fat Right Now!

I’ve got a newfound love for fast workouts.


Well besides the fact that you can get  A LOT done in a short period of time, which is paramount for a busy dad, busy business owner…and a guy who just doesn’t want to spend every waking moment doing fat loss workouts.

Who’d a thought? A personal trainer who doesn’t want to spend all his time doing workouts!

But it’s true.  I’ve got better things to do than spend hours doing fat loss workouts and I’m willing to bet you do too.

You’ve got work requirements.  You’ve got kids that need to get ready for school, lunches packed, homework that needs to be done, after school sports and activities like band or dance…man kids take up a lot of free time!

But on top of that you probably just don’t like to spend a lot of time working out.  The people who enjoy doing long fat loss workouts are few and far between, so it’s probably music to your ears when I tell you that you can get fast workouts in that are just as, if not more, effective than longer workouts.

It’s just a matter of cutting out all the “isolation” movements like triceps kickbacks, crunches, torso twists, etc. and stick to movements that move a lot of muscle which means they burn a lot of fat.

That is the true key to fast workouts.  Sticking with big movements and combination exercises, and cutting out the frivolous movements that do little to nothing in terms of fat loss.

But what do fast workouts look like?  Do fast workouts have to look like some sort of new-age aerobics class?

Gosh no!  Don’t even mention aerobics in the same breath as fast workouts.  All I can think of when someone says aerobics class is leg warmers, spandex and Jane Fonda…and those 3 things don’t bring up happy thoughts!

I’m going to make it very easy for your to perform your fast workout.

I’m going to let you choose from the following exercises and create your own fast workouts.

Here’s the exercises, or groups of exercises, you have to choose from:

1)  Squat w/Shoulder Press
2)  Push-up and Squat
3)  Dumbbell or Kettlebell Swings
4)  Burpees with a Push-up at the bottom

You’ll notice that all of those exercises have one big thing in common.  They all work virtually every single muscle in your body and get your heart pumping fast which will help you to burn a lot of fat.

Here’s how I’m going to have you perform your fast workouts.

Pick one or two of the above exercises.

Do the following for 4 minutes:

Perform the exercise as fast as you can, with perfect form, for 20 seconds.

Then rest for 10 seconds.

Repeat until 4 minutes is up.

Yes, that’s it.

If you do the exercises and fast workouts properly you will be panting like a shaggy dog on a hot summer day and will be begging for mercy.

Here’s the key for these fast workouts and using the exercises I have outlined above…pick a weight that makes the exercise difficult, but not so difficult that your form suffers and make sure you use perfect form when doing each and every repetition.

Poor form will make the workout useless and could even make you hurt yourself.

Because this fast workout only takes 4 minutes you can do it pretty much any time you have a few minutes, and sweat, to spare.  But my recommendation is to do it first thing in the morning, before you let anything else get in your way.  That way you’ve got the workout in and done for the day so that if anything else comes up and you miss your workout for later on in the day at least you got this killer fast workout in.

Have a great day!
