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: Power Play!

The power is in your hands! It’s also in your shoulders, your biceps, your triceps, your forearms…

We designed a great workout to power you (and your body) up! All it requires are dumbbells and effort.

You might not think power is sexy, but it does come in handy. Just imagine a normal run to the local grocery store. You’ll push a cart full of groceries (and possibly a child if you have one), lift items off the shelves to put into your cart, hoist those same items onto the conveyor belt when you’re about to pay, and take them in and out of your car.

Even a little power and strength will spare your arms from feeling the pain (without gains).

You’ll be doing 3 rounds of 4 minute-long stations. That means you’ll spend a minute at each station, no transition break (you’ll get a minute of rest during each round). Simple enough?

It’s power hour!

Don’t you want shoulders that SCREAM sexy?

Today’s workout will get you on track for just that!

We’ve got curls, planks, “I” raises, “L” raises, and burpees, all designed to tone your shoulders to perfection. There’s also one piece of equipment we’ll be using today that really brings the burn to your shoulders…battle ropes!

Battle ropes are these long ropes that you can slam, shake, and even whip. The ropes aren’t light, so you’ll need your shoulders to get them off the ground and moving.
