Torch Body Fat in 30 Minutes
Looking for an easy way to save time and get more out of your visit to the gym? Rather than spending an hour between cardio and weights, I’m combining both into a powerful, time-saving, fat-burning workout that you can knock out in just 30 minutes.
I’ve written a lot about interval training in the past (see my article on High Intensity Interval Training here), but its benefits really can’t be overstated. Engaging in high intensity, total-body exercises will give you more in terms of results than any other approach, because you’ll burn crazy amounts of fat while strengthening and building muscle.
This is where the true time-saving advantage comes into play. On top of that, you’ll also move your body in new ways, jumpstarting your metabolism and overcoming whatever plateau you’ve found yourself stuck in. For the most part, total-body exercises like those found in interval training are more organic, which means they’ll also improve your everyday fitness.
Before I get to it, I’m going to recommend that you try one of these top Pre Workout Energy Foods to get you energized for this intense 30 minute workout.
If you’re looking for something a little more serious, then I also recommend checking out my Best Pre Workout Supplements here. Whether it’s energy or muscular endurance you’re looking for, you’ll find it here.
Okay, ready to torch your body fat in only 30 minutes?
My 30 Minute Workout to Torch Body Fat
Start this workout with a 5 minute warm-up. You can go for a brisk walk on the treadmill, use the elliptical, or just jump rope at a moderate pace for 5 minutes.
What to Do: Once you’ve got your muscle warmed up, it’s on to the exercises. For this workout, you’re going to run through 1 set of each exercise without any rest in between. This is going to help keep your heart rate up and your metabolism going strong. After 1 circuit, rest for 1 minute, then repeat the circuit twice more. (For those who are really ambitious, go for a 4th circuit!)
What You Need: All you need for this fat-torching workout is 2 pairs of dumbbell weights, one heavy set and one light set, a jump rope, and either a stationary bike or a rowing machine.
Here’s the routine…
- 12 reps of Walking Lunge and Press (view exercise)
- 12 reps of Bench Step-Ups (view exercise)
- 10 reps of Dumbbell Rows on Floor (view exercise)
- 1 minute of Jump Rope
- 10 reps of Front Dumbbell Squat (view exercise)
- 1 minute of Jumping Jacks of Squat Jumps
- 12 reps of Woodchopper (view exercise)
- 2 minutes of Rowing Machine or Stationary Bike (fast pace)
- Rest for 1 minute and repeat
Feeling the burn? Trust me, this is an intense little workout, but you’ve got to hit it with some determination and energy to get the most out of its fat-torching potential. Make sure you run through the circuit at least 3 times, and feel free to add to it with some of your other favorite exercises.
Do this workout at least twice a week, in addition to your other workouts, for optimal fat-torching results.
