3 Fast Fat Blasters

3 Fast Fat Blasters

Get ready to retire that “no time” for the gym excuse. This workout is for the short on time, but big on body benefits.

Tabata Squats:

Perform as many squats as you can in 20 seconds, then rest for 10 seconds. Repeat for a total of eight sets. You’ll challenge your lower body and your ticker in only four minutes.

Try to do the same number of squats in all rounds. You can do this workout with push-ups, sit-ups or any other move that can be cycled through quickly.

7 Minutes of Burpees:

Lower down and place hands on the floor. Jump legs back, coming into a plank, and touch body to the floor. Reverse the motion. As you stand, jump up and clap hands overhead. Repeat.

This exercise really taxes the legs, shoulders and lungs. You can do three minutes if you don’t have the stamina for seven.

Half A “Cindy”:

One round is five pull-ups, 10 push-ups and 15 squats. The goal is to do as many rounds as you can in 20 minutes – that’s a “Cindy.” However, 10 minutes is plenty for beginners.

Go as fast as possible without sacrificing form. Even if that means scaling down reps or making modifications, like doing knee push-ups instead of full ones or using ring rows for pull-ups.
