10 Minute Fat Burning Workout
Tight on time? Finding it hard to fit in those extra fat-busting workouts?
Time is an issue for all of us, and it’s one of the biggest complaints from my clients trying to lose weight. And the truth is, real weight loss requires a decent amount of time and effort, so it’s no wonder people get frustrated.
Over the years, I’ve tried to offer up some effective workouts that can be fit into tight schedules or used on busy days. So here’s a 10 minute fat burning workout to get you shedding the pounds on days when you just can’t seem to find the time!
The 10 Minute Fat Burning Workout
This 10-minute workout incorporates 4 different fat-busting exercises. All you need is a set of dumbbells, so this workout can easily be done at home or at the gym. Cycle through these exercises, performing each one to exhaustion or failure.
1. Alternating Standing Oblique Crunches
Standing with your arms overhead, bring your left elbow and right knee together, then return to starting position. Repeat on your other side, switching to right elbow and left knee. Make sure you keep your back straight and your abs engaged throughout the movement. To get more intense, hold a light dumbbell in each hand. (view image)
2. Forward Lunge with Lateral Raise
Stand in a lunge position, holding a dumbbell in each hand. Bend one knee until your front thigh is parallel to the floor. As you bend, raise your arms to shoulder height. Then return to starting position. Repeat the same number of reps on each side. To get more intense, hold the lunge longer or try a heavier weight. (view image)
3. Single-Arm Dumbbell Swing
Stand in a squat position with your feet wider than hip-width, with your toes facing forward. Hold one dumbbell between your knees and get in a squat position, swing arms up and straight ahead as you push out of the squat. Hold the squat for longer to get more intense. (view image)
4. Single-Leg Hip Raise
Lie on your back flat on the floor. Bend one leg at the knee and hold the other leg straight up in the air. Raise your hips off the ground and hold for 5 seconds. Then return to the floor. Switch legs, repeating the same number of reps on each side. To rev this one up, use a resistance band or add ankle weights. (view image)
Remember, I don’t endorse 10 minute workouts on a regular basis, but I also understand that life is busy, and sometimes we have days when a full workout isn’t going to happen. This 10 minute fat burning workout is a great option for those days. It will help keep your metabolism up and your body burning calories.
If you’re looking for an extra kick in your diet, then I also recommend adding a natural metabolism booster like Irwin Naturals Green Tea Fat Metabolizer. And for those who are more intense with their workouts, try this Basic Fat Loss Stack – it will really get you burning fat and losing weight!
