Quick Metabolic Workout

May 25, 2010

Below is a quick metabolic workout that you can do just about anywhere with any exercise.  I recommend you do some type of high intensity cardiovascular exercise three days a week on days that you don’t do resistance training.

Research shows that high intensity cardiovascular exercise can continue to burn calories up to 48 to 72 hours after you have finished your workout.  That is significantly different than walking for 3o minutes at an easy slow pace.  You only burn a few calories during your walk and that is all.

You can follow along or add your own favorite exercises if you like.  After finishing your first four minutes rest for a minute and then repeat again. Try to work up to 20 minutes total.

Committed to Your Success,
