The Best Full Body Fat Burning Workout

Posted on Thursday, March 29th, 2012 at 6:33 am


I can’t believe it’s already the end of the week. It’s scary how fast time passes… all the more reason to stop delaying your goals and begin taking steps to get there. 


It’s hard to take a leap, but one step in the right direction is totally doable. 


So if you haven’t yet tried one of my workouts, give today’s full body workout a try. 


It’s a timed workout, meaning you have to complete the workout as fast as you can. 


There are 3 different bodyweight exercises that target the lower body, upper body, core, and cardio. 


The beauty of this workout is that if you don’t have alot of time, just do as many sets as you can.


You can always continue later on.  Remember that every little bit helps. 


Don’t forget to warm-up and stretch afterwards. 


As always, I show beginner variations and the full workout details are below:



Workout Details:


Keep track of your time on a clock, Gymboss Interval Timer or phone timer if you have one.


Perform the following 3 exercises one after the other until you complete 8 sets.


Depending on your fitness level, the total workout should take you anywhere between 14 to 20 minutes to complete.


Perform the set number of repetitions for each exercise before moving on to the next one. Doing all three exercises counts as 1 set.


Make sure that you record the time it took you to complete the workout so that you can try to beat your time the next time you try this workout.


Beginners can choose to perform fewer repetitions. Just listen to your body and adjust the intensity as needed.


Here are the exercise details:


1. Fwd Lunges to Wide & Close Jump Squats x 10 reps: 

This exercise works the legs, glutes, and cardio.  It’s great for rounding out your bum and giving your booty a lift. Doing both lunges and both squats counts as 1 repetition. 


2. Push-Up to Knee Tucks x 10 reps: 

The push-up targets the chest, shoulders, and tricpes.  The knee tucks target the core as well as adds a cardio element.  Every push-up to knee tuck counts as 1 repetition.


3. Jumping Jacks x 20 reps: 

This is a great cardio exercise and really elevates your heart rate.  It also targets the muscles of the calves.  Bringing your feet out and back to the center again counts as 1 repetition.


All 3 exercises count as 1 set. Keep repeating until you complete 8 sets and record your time.
