Workout of the Week: The Body Weight Scorcher

Ever heard of the acronym K.I.S.S.?

No, I’m not talking about the famous band (that would be a random reference to make)…

Keep.

It.

Simple.

Stupid.

Trainers these days love to create the craziest, most bizarre workouts to burn weight off the belly. While some of these routines can be effective, a lot of them are more for show and less for results.

Sometimes, you just have to go back to the roots of fitness for an old school body burn, just like today’s workout. Simple exercises (with some added mechanics, of course) really are enough to get you the results you’ve been dying for! Your whole body will love this one.

Get ready to get going!

Workout of the Week: Get That Heart Pumpin’!

Healthy heart, healthy body!

Did you know that your heart actually becomes stronger from exercising? The stronger it gets, the more blood it can pump through your body with every beat!

Exercise keeps your heart working at its absolute best. Plus, your resting heart rate will decrease since your heart will be so strong, it doest take as much effort to pump blood.

This short workout is going to get your heart pumping and your muscles working! Get ready to sweat through some high knees, push presses, and more!

Do you have the beat? Let’s get started!

Workout of the Week: Get Abs, Lose Flabs!

Ready to ab-olish those abs?

Ok, ok, that one was a bit of a…stretch. (Alright, last fitness pun, promise!)

Seriously though, when is it NOT a great time to tone your abs? Throw you legs in the mix and you’ve got yourself a nice midsection/lower body workout!

Today’s workout is a partner workout, meaning you’ll need to find a friend to do this with. You’ll alternate between the primary movement and the secondary movement at each station in 30 second intervals.

This one is 5 rounds per station, so you’ll be working that endurance of your…a lot! Get ready for some plank jacks, jump lunges, and squat jumps!

Workout of the Week: Exercise Buddies Unite!

What’s better than getting in killer shape?

Getting in killer shape with a friend!

This partner workout is designed to give you and your buddy a high intensity, fat burning work out – at the same time!

Here’s how it works:

These workouts will have 30 second work intervals followed by 5 seconds of rest/transition intervals.

Partner #1 will do as many reps as they can in the Primary Movement, and Partner #2 will hold the Secondary Movement for as long as they can. So if Amy is Partner #1, she will do as many squat jacks as possible; while she’s doing that, Sarah will be holding a plank for 30 seconds. Then both partners will switch.
