Workout of the Week: Six-Pack Prep

Wanna Tabata?

Today’s workout is another six-pack ab burner with a twist…

It’s a Tabata workout!

Tabata workouts consist of 8 continuous rounds of 20-second sets (AMRAP). Each set is followed by 10 seconds of break. Not only do you get in a ton of reps, but your heart rate will be pounding through your chest, too!

If you want the abs of your dreams, you’ll need to chisel your midsection AND burn fat. This workout will do just that for you!

One last note: pace yourself! These workouts require stamina, so you don’t want to burn yourself out in the beginning, only to realize that you still have a long way to go.

Now are you down to Tabata?

Workout of the Week: The Burpee Sandwich

Ooooh… a burpee sandwich!

What in the world is that?!?

Uh, only the best way to order your burpees, of course!

Now before you jump into the gym and start knocking burpees out until you collapse, here me out for a sec…

Burpees are BEST done when combined with other exercises. Since they check a lot of boxes already, you’re free to mix them in with almost any workout routine you typically do.

Here’s one we’re calling the burpee sandwich, and inside is a patty made of planks. Hmm, maybe we should trademark all this…

Fit Body’s Four Pillars of a Great Workout

When it comes to working out, there are plenty of ways gym-goers can go wrong…

Really, fitness isn’t about “pumping iron” or pushing yourself until your body gives out on you.

Fitness is about exercising the RIGHT way. Let’s break down the difference.

You need proper form, balanced nutrition, and the right pace to see results. Pretty standard stuff, right?

Well, it’s not always that simple. “Gymtimidation”, or even the desire to get results immediately, can make people practice sloppy form, eat too few calories, or overwork themselves…

Here’s the good news: Fit Body has invented a four-point strategy to help you get the most out of your workouts! Consider these the four “pillars” to remember if you want to lose weight and burn as much fat as you can.
