Fit Tip: Burn Fat Fast!

Monday Morning Fit Tip:

BODYWEIGHT WORKOUTS BURN FAT

 Why Bodyweight Workouts?
Bodyweight – we all have it.  Whether you’re at the club, at home, or on vacation, you can use your bodyweight for a very effective workout.
 
Using only your body weight as resistance builds strength and stamina quickly.  This increased strength means more muscle and muscle burns more calories than fat, even while resting.  According to the American Council on Exercise, you can burn an 35 extra calories a day for each pound of muscle.  These bodyweight exercises are also great for building your functional fitness (read more about that here).
 
Sample Workout
10 Pushups
10 Burpies
20 Mountain Climbers (see picture)
Take a quick (30-60 sec) break, then repeat 2-3 times. 
 
You can use any bodyweight exercises that you’d like, such as Plank/Side Plank/Forearm Plank, Pull-Ups, Tricep Dips, Squats or Jump Squats, Wall Sits and more!
