Weigh Less By Next Week

Are you trying to blast through those extra pounds? It can be super frustrating when it takes so much time, sweat and effort to lose just one or two pounds. The key to burning fat (and losing weight) is through cardio and also by increasing the number of days per week that you work out. Sticking to full-body workouts is best because it isn’t really possible to burn fat on specific zones of your body; you have to burn it all equally. That’s why we’ve put together this fat-burning workout to make you smile next time you step on that scale!

1. Jumping Jacks: Jumping jacks are a classic exercise to get your heart rate up and blood flowing. Do as many as you can for 60 seconds. Here’s how to do them.

2. Reverse Plank: You’ll especially feel this move in your abs, but it will test your arms, legs and balance as well. Try to hold this for a full minute! Click here for instructions on how to do a reverse plank or try it with a raised leg for an added challenge, shown in the video below!

3. Mountain Climber: Gotta keep that heart rate up! Plunge your knees directly beneath your abdominal for best results. If your shirt isn’t fitted, sometimes you gotta tuck it into your shorts for this move! Here’s how to do mountain climbers.
