Simple Way To Boost The Intensity Of Your Fat Loss Workout

Video Shows You How To Boost The Intensity Of Your Fat Loss Workout

fat loss workout and increasing intensity to lose weight

This ain't about aerobics

So how was your weekend?  Mine was fine and dandy.  A little hectic, but fine and dandy nonetheless.  Thanks to the fact that my internal alarm clock goes off at around 5:00am every morning, if not earlier, I was able to get some new equipment put up Saturday morning before my first client and I’m pretty pumped about using it.

I have a pretty big list of some things I’m going to make for the studio and can’t wait to get them finished and start torturing clients and cranking their workouts, and results!

Oh and Nolan is still teething like crazy and has started biting.  Feels good for him, but for the rest of us it’s not pretty.  Baby teeth are wicked sharp!  The Ginsu people have nothing on baby teeth!

Anywho, are you ready to have some fun?

I’m going to share a sweet little video with you today demonstrating a wicked workout tip I’ve been using in my own workouts, as well as a few of my fat loss clients.

I’m always looking for ways to turn up the intensity, without actually killing the person.  I hate writing workouts that are hard just to be hard.  That’s silly and doesn’t do anyone any good.  A quality fat loss workout should burn calories, make you sweat and feel worked, but not so much that you can’t go about your day.

Without further ado, check out the Fat Loss Workout video below and I’ll catch ya on the other side…

Did that make sense?

I think that taking 2 awesome full body metabolic exercises and pairing them up into a superset and then doing them before AND after your main fat loss workout is an awesome way to increase the intensity, without beating your nervous system, joints or muscles to dust.

It’s simple and crazy effective.

You could choose a myriad of different metabolic exercises to pair together in your fat loss workout.

Here’s a quick rundown of some of my favorite butt-kicking metabolic/cardio exercises you could choose from for your Book End Superset…

Burpees

Squat Thrusts

Jump Squats

Spiderman Push-ups

Plyo Push-ups

Jump Split Squat

Jump Rope – but you have to be able to do it continuously for at least 30 seconds otherwise it makes zero sense using this one

Mountain Climbers

Swings – 1-Arm or Regular

Jumping Jacks

Burpee w/Push-up

Renegade Row

Cross Body Mountain Climbers

You get the picture – there are loads of different fat loss exercises to choose from to get the most benefit from Book Ending your workouts.

One thing to be aware of is that when choosing a jumping exercise like Jump Squats or Jump Split Squats, you need to spend a little extra time warming up those leg muscles.

You also need to make sure you do them properly.  I know that should go without saying, but it needs to be said.  If you do a jumping exercise incorrectly for long enough, your knees will pay the price…or you could fall flat on your face, which isn’t very cool either.

Sound good?

Let me know what you think or if you have any questions.

Talk soon…

P.S. – I have a quick favor to ask that is really a cool thing for you.  I’m testing out a new diet/workout program and need some guinea pigs…and wondered if you want to be a member of my pilot group.  If chosen, you would get the entire program for free – including the full diet, a few sample recipes, full workout program, workout logs, follow-along, downloadable videos (with the option of adding DVDs for a small charge to cover shipping and my cost of burning).  All I ask in return is your feedback and results.

If you do this, I fully expect you to do it and share the results with me in terms of a testimonial – written, video, picture – for my future use…that’s all I ask in return for you getting an awesome program that I am very proud of.  It’s brand spanking new and only lasts 28 days.  It’s pretty intense and is designed for the person who is looking for a nice “jump start” or the person who is stuck in a rut or plateau and needs a swift kick in the butt.

 

If you’d like in, shoot me an email at ed @ fatlosstogo.com and I’ll give you the details on how to access it and a bit more information on the program.

    Ed,

    Adding those split squats in a routine like this will really make you really work for each breath. They’re a monster exercise.

    Book ending these mini-metabolic sessions around your central routine seems like a great way to jump start your way to a stellar session. But beginners should realize this is more of an advanced technique that they should work their way towards.
