July 4th Fat Burning Ab Workout
Hello my American friends!
Thinking of skipping your workout this July 4th?
Well, just yesterday I got an emergency assignment from Men's Health...
...they wanted a program for their "15-Minute Workout" section, using exercises that readers can do at home with minimal equipment. (Sound familiar? I specialize in those things!)
So it was easy, I just grabbed a couple of exercises from my latest program, sent them this little ditty.
And you can use it on the fourth, before your big day begins and family activities start heating up.
It will burn fat, build muscle, work your abs (hard!), and trains what I call, "The 4 Metabolism Boosting Hot Zones" of the body (more on those in the August TT workout of the month)...
Here's the program. You'll love it for a quick workout in the summer. (see below)
MH 15-Minute Total Body Ab Workout
-> Do a regular TT bodyweight warm-up before this circuit for 5 min. (You can use the one from the Belly-Off program as well).
-> No rest between exercises.
-> Rest 1 minute at the end of the circuit before repeating as many times as you can in the remainder of your 15-minute time frame.
1A) Dumbell Split Squat - 8 reps per side
1B) X-Body Mountain Climber - 12 reps per side
1C) Chin-up with Knee-up - 10 reps
Alternative exercises...if you don't have dumbells or a chin-up bar, or if these are too hard (safety first!):
1A) 1-Leg Squat/Pistol or 1-Leg Deadlift or 1-Leg Reaching Lunge
1B) Mountain Climber or Side Plank
1C) DB Pullover or Hanging Knee Raise or Stability Ball Rollout
Get abs WITHOUT crunches or cardio,
