Great Workout With Core De Force

I’m now a big fan of Beachbody’s Core De Force workout! 

This is an awesome workout plan.  It’s easy to follow…. just pick the workout, hit play and follow along with the instructors.  The workouts are fast paced and challenging, but still easy enough to follow along with. It’s basically just plug-n-play and the workouts aren’t too long, that’s one thing I really like about them.

It’s amazing how sore my body was from kicking, punching and doing other MMA style moves.  That’s the best part of the workout, doing these types of exercises that work muscles we don’t use regularly.

Give this exercise plan a try, it’s an awesome cardio workout and I guarantee you’ll see results.  You can pick up the DVD set HERE, or even better, sign up for BeachBody on demand HERE and get unlimited workouts from every workout plan they have!   What a sweet deal that is!

5x5x5 Workout

We did this workout last Friday and I can honestly tell you that it kicked my butt! My heart rate was elevated through the entire workout and I had sweat dripping off my nose! My abs were still sore from both Monday and Wednesdays workout so Up and Downs and Overhead Toe Touch combo about killed me! At the end, I felt like 5 minutes would never end!

BUT, these are the kind of workouts that I love. The ones that push me to the limit and make me dig deep and force myself to push through to the end.

What kind of workouts do you like?? Post below and we will try some out to share with you!

Give this workout a try and come back and let us know how much you loved/hated it! 😉

Getting Rid of Dreaded Belly Fat!

how-to-lose-belly-fatThe dreaded belly fat! It seems so much easier to lose weight anywhere else when compared to losing the belly fat. However it does not have to be that way!

There are a lot of mistakes that are made when people are trying to get rid of belly fat. Although losing body fat quickly is possible, it generally takes people much longer than it actually should if you avoid simple mistakes.

Here are some simple tips for being successful. These will get rid of belly fat and will also give you a super great workout.

 

#1 – Exercise with a lot of intensity!

Your workouts must be intense if you want to get rid of the belly fat. If you train with intensity you will elevate your metabolism and you will be burning calories even after you are done with the workout. The trick to losing belly fat is to have more muscle mass and burn more calories. Here is a great example of interval, “metabolic strength training”.

20 lunges

10 overhead squat presses

10 pushups

Try doing this for as many rounds as you can in a fast pace in a 10 minute time frame and only rest when you need to. This will surely rev up that metabolism and get your heart pumping!

#2 – Do interval training after circuit training.

Interval training is by far the best method to get rid get of belly fat utilize your time. It is more effective, more engaging and a whole lot quicker to do. If you would like faster results and a better metabolic result then interval based cardio is the way for you.

Intervals are done by doing high intensity followed by low intensity and repeating. Push yourself out of your comfort zone, to get the most out of a workout like this.

#3 – Combine your interval training, Cardio and weight training into one for a  shorter period of time. 

You can do squats, jump rope, sprints, push ups or whatever you wish!

Example:

20 Jumping Jacks

10 Squat Thrusts

20 Squats

10 Mt Climbers

I recommend finding a min of 4 exercises and a max of 8 so as not to get bored and add weights. You can also do these timed, such as 3o seconds of work and 10 seconds of rest for up to 10 minutes. Great metabolic booster workout!

Now go burn some belly fat!
