Quickest Fat Loss Workout EVER?By Rob Poulos...
This morning I was ‘forcefully inspired’ to create what I think is the most effective quick flab loss workout ever!
In fact, this workout had both Kalen and I huffing and puffing like a locomotive after just… 5 minutes…
Yes I realize that sounds crazy if you don’t know any more details… so let’s get into why this works so well and how you can perform this workout whenever you are in a time crunch. (happens every week to us!)
Back to why this happened in the first place (why I was ‘forcefully inspired’)…
We had overbooked a couple of appointments, causing us to have almost no time to workout before I had to pickup our son Ryan from school…
I hate missing the FBF workouts, because they’re so easy and so effective, but I figured we maybe had 15 minutes (including changing time), so that left about 5 minutes or so for each of our workouts.
Here’s the 5-minute fat blasting workout I came up with that has our bodies using stored fat for fuel at an accelerated rate for the next 2-3 days:
1. Bodyweight 60-Second Squat (take 60 seconds to complete 1 super slow repetition)
2. Dumbbell Deadlift
3. Bodyweight 60-Second Pushup (take 60 seconds to complete 1 super slow repetition)
4. Chin Ups (Negative Only… jump into the top position and lower yourself very slowly, repeat until you cannot control the lowering speed)
5. Dumbbell Overhead Press
Alright, seems pretty simple… but here is the magic behind and why this works so well:
1. We are working almost the entire body’s musculature in just 5 movements. Think the abs aren’t getting hit? Think again! They are used to stabilize your entire body during every one of these exercises.
2. We rested only long enough to move to the next exercise… which means pretty much no rest. This creates a compounding effect making each successive exercise extremely taxing and productive.
3. We took each exercise to or as close to muscular failure as possible, and when combined with the 2 other point above create high degrees of muscular fiber fatigue and emptying of our sugar (glycogen) stores calling upon stored fat for the next 48-72 hours.
On top of that, we continue to build strength, muscle, etc. all from about 5 minutes!
If you can find a tougher and more productive 5 minute workout let me know ;-).
Oh, also, if you have trouble doing the 60-second pushup or squat, just try a lower time frame like 30 seconds and build up from there.
So give this a try when u are in a time crunch and let me know how it goes in the comments below…
