There’s no need to over complicate things when it comes to working out.
❌There’s no need to join a gym or buy expensive equipment to get fit – often times people mistakenly throw away hard earned money looking for a fitness solution.
❌Stop doing sit ups or plodding along on a treadmill if you want to lose your menopause belly.
✔️If you have 10 minutes and the space equivalent to a hotel bathroom, you have all you need for a full body workout that will tighten and tone every area of your body 😉
✔️The key to fat burning is to do metabolically expensive exercises that work a multitude of muscles.
❌Doing sit ups will engage some of the muscles of the abdomen, but sit ups will not create the metabolic storm required to burn fat.
❌Doing traditional steady state cardio will not address the muscle toning required to transform your body. You’ll burn minimal calories while you’re exercising, but the calorie burning stops when you stop moving. In addition, steady state cardio workouts are long (and boring) and you risk a cortisol elevation – this is the belly fat storing hormone that is triggered in stressful situations.
✳️This workout I have for you follows the ‘AMRAP’ format, meaning: ‘as many rounds as possible’. You will simply cycle through each exercise at your own pace for the determined time. In this case, I’ve listed 6 minutes but you can increase or decrease the workout time to suit you.
👊🏻Count your rounds and try to beat your score the next time you do the workout.
The benefit of this style of workout is that it will engage every muscle of your body.
6 min AMRAP:
Air Squat x 5
Pushup x 5
Spider crawl x 5 per side
Burpees x 5
Wall sit stick ups x 5
*do as many rounds of this as you can in the time alotted
Don’t kid yourself that you don’t have time to exercise.
You really only need 15 minutes three times a week to get body changing results.
