This workout is very intense because it’s non-stop for 15mins and the exercises are all really explosive and cardiovascular. I like to try and keep my workouts to 30mins or less because I hate spending ages in the gym. It may not seem like much but if you keep your workouts short, intensive and put in maximum effort you will get the same results, if not better, than spending 45-60mins on the treadmill or cross trainer.
Another benefit of incorporating these types of workouts into your routine is that they are very dynamic and therefore call for a lot more technique and stability from other muscle groups that maybe aren’t being directly exercised. So you’re workouts become more efficient. By performing high intensity, full body workouts you stand to burn more calories, not just during the workout, but for hours after. Your body becomes a “Fat Burning Furnace” 🙂
Complete as many rounds of the following 5 exercises in 15mins. I completed 5 full rounds and 1/4 of of the 6th round:
- Burpees x 10reps
- Medicine Ball Slams x 10reps
- Lunge Jumps x 20reps
- Explosive Push-ups x 5reps
- Hanging Leg/Knee Raises x 5reps
Let me know what you think and tune in tomorrow for another workout.
