5 Minute Home Workout for MAXIMUM FAT LOSS
The best home workout for an Afterburn affect!
Don't have time to workout? Don't have access to a gym? Don't worry! That does not mean you can't get a good workout!
For this 5 minute exercise you can do from home, you don't need any equipment. All you need is 5 minutes of your time. It's great for building cardio, strength, and cutting fat. Best of all, it'll have you continually burning calories for at least 24 hours after you perform this workout! Sounds easy, right? Not at all. Those 5 minutes will be the most intense 5 minutes in within your day.
There are a few things you'll have to understand about fat loss before you perform this workout. "Cutting" or "Burning" fat is from being able to have your body burn more calories than you intake throughout the day. After your body burns more calories than you intake, it starts to break down the "stored" calories (meaning fat) on your body. This is when you'll begin the fat loss process. So burn more calories!
To burn more calories, you need to perform an intense workout. The more intense it is, the more calories you will burn. You'll also have a "afterburn" effect, where you continually burn calories for 24-48 hours after the workout. So perform the most intense workout you've had! Every time!
So here is the 5 Minute Home Workout for MAXIMUM FAT LOSS:
Body weight Squats (20 repetitions)
Remember to have your toes pointed forward, back straight, look up and butt out. Make sure to perfect your form to reduce injuries. Breathe in when going down, out when going up.
Burpee (25 repetitions)
When performing the burpee, make sure to complete the motion. It's critical that you kick your foot out, push up, and jump up every time you perform this exercise. It does not matter how long you take, just make sure you do it correctly!
Mountain Climbers (50 repetitions)
Go down to a push up position, make sure to kick your knee up as high as possible. Go up and down alternating your legs. Do this exercise as fast as possible.
The key is to perform these three exercises one after another and as fast as possible. Get your heart rate up. It may take more than 5 minutes the first few times you do it, but that's okay. Time yourself and keep track of your time to better your score each time. The faster you do it, the more intense it becomes - which burns more calories...cutting fat!
