5 Effective Fat Burning Workout Routines

5 Effective Fat Burning Workout Routines

Not again, there it is staring at you from across the gymnasium, the treadmill or the cross trainer, we all know cardio workouts can be a complete drag particularly on those low energy days where fatigue and low motivation strikes. Try these five dynamic cardio workouts instead.

These workout routines will work you hard, that I promise but they are far more fun and significantly more effective than your usual 20 minute blast on the treadmill.

There’s no huge secret to staying lean and toned. If you want to keep your body fat on the lower end of where it should be and showcase your hard earned body muscle and impressive physique then you need to perform cardiovascular exercise or conditioning. If you dislike this form of cardio exercise and many guys do, then while its a necessary body conditioning evil, you want to maximize each painful minute spent pounding away.

Understanding this is probably not a life changing piece of information for anyone but the knowing you that you need to condition and actually doing it don’t always go together do they. In other words, unless you have a love affair with your elevated heart rate, most normal forms of cardio conditioning are not a great deal of fun at all.

I might not love cardio myself, but I know it’s essential to the condition and to the fine tuning of my body. I design my cardiovascular work much like I design my weightlifting workouts: Essentially I try and keep things interesting, fast paced, and above all lots of fun.

If you try some of my awesome cardio workouts, you won’t spend all day on the treadmill or sweating bullets on the cross trainer. Instead, you’ll jump, sprint, and do high repetition exercises so your heart rate goes up and the pesky fat literally burns right off.

Make Cardio Workouts Exciting Again

Here are five fat busting workout routines for you to try. These are pretty intense workouts, so I suggest that you ease yourself into these workouts depending on your overall fitness and conditioning level.

I suggest that you commence with one workout per week. As you become more accustomed and conditioned to the workout routines, you can instead do 2-3 of these fat burning cardio exercises each week and see how you get on with them.

  • 800 meters medium sprint running or treadmill flat out.

Really the secret trick to these fat burning workouts is to rest as little as possible as you workout. Break the exercise routine just long enough to manage your heart rate and tap on a few fluids if needed, then go on to the next set of exercises and keep pushing it. Try them in any order and analyze the results after a few sustained weeks.
