This workout is based on the principles of High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT). This method of exercise focuses on rapidly and periodically increasing the heart rate. This helps in rapid burning of calories which when performed consistently leads to overall fat loss. For this workout the interval of increasing the heart rate i.e the duration of each exercise of 40 secs. This is followed by a rest period of 20 sec where the heart rate is allowed to drop and it also becomes a highly needed breather which completes one minute per exercise. There are a total of 6 exercises performed in this manner.
Rapid calorie-loss is facilitated by three major exercise groups: Full body cardio, dynamic core training and legs training. These exercise clusters are very effective in shooting up the heart rate and burning significant calories.
Each of these exercise group contains two exercises in this workout:
Cardio: Burpees and Squat Burpees
Core: Mountain Climbers and Dynamic Planks
Legs: Jump Squats and Sprinter Lunges
These exercises are easy to understand and perform but the real challenge is to perform these for the duration of 40 seconds with maximum intensity.
The key to maximizing fat loss from this workout is to push yourself to stick to the time.
It is not required to perform this workout regularly as it is quite exhausting and your muscles need time to recover. Try this out 1-2 times in a week if you are working out regularly, and 3-4 times per week if you are an active person.
