Burn fat with at home workouts

At Home Workouts To Burn Fat

10 At-Home Fat Burning Workouts

If you want to get back in shape fast, then you need short, burst workouts that you can do at home - so you don't miss a workout on your busy schedule.

Fortunately, you can get great workouts even if you only have 15 minutes to exercise at home a few days per week.

That's the great news about short, burst workouts...a little bit of effort now has been proven by scientists to be just as effective - and even better - for fat loss and fitness results.

Here are just a few at-home workout ideas to get you started:

1. Use the first superset of your favorite Turbulence Training workout and do as many rounds as possible in 10 minutes. Why? Because the first superset always contains the most effective

2. "30 seconds on, 30 seconds off" doing kettlebell swings

3. Burpees

4. Kettlebell Exercises Paired With TRX Exercises (although this involves owning a LOT of equipment and having a lot of space)

5. TT Bodyweight Cardio Workouts (that don't require any equipment at all)

6. Intervals supersetted with ab exercises like planks or side planks (which are made harder by the high breathing rate)

7. Bodyweight Challenges - Like the Bodyweight Cardio 1000 (Challenge type workouts get you hooked on exercise and prevent you from skipping workouts)

8. DB-BW Fusion Workouts - Pair a dumbbell exercise and bodyweight exercise together in a superset and go back and forth as many times as possible in 10 minutes.

9. Hybrid Triset Workouts - 3 exercises performed in a tri-set, using one dumbbell exercise, one bodyweight exercise, and one kettlebell or stability ball exercise. Requires just a little equipment, but work great!

10. Adrenaline Circuits - Combining bodyweight exercises and short, burst adrenaline style interval training methods. (Adrenaline intervals are covered in the 31 Interval Workouts manual.)

To learn more about interval training, bodyweight circuits, and how to lose fat over the holidays with this combination, grab the Complete At-Home Fat Burning System here.

Ladies Discover How to Lose Arm Fat

Fitness author Jon Benson shared this letter with me and gave me permission to share it with my readers

Got arm flab?

Know someone who does?

Some women I know with a healthy sense of humor refer to it as "their wings" because their arm flab flaps when they walk or jog.

It's time to get rid of your wings ladies...

Before I go any further, I have to tell you about Marty Web.

Marty looked like ... well, your typical 59-year-old housewife. Actually she looked a bit worse.

She was a good 80 pounds over her ideal bodyweight. And she had her wings...

... big time wings. Loads of arm flab.

That was at age 59.

At age 61... wow. Different story.

Marty transformed her body to such a degree that even I could have never guessed she was an OUNCE overweight!

Her story and 52 others just like her, male and female, are in my first book -- and my best-seller Fit Over 40.

I'd like you to read more about it here -- <<--- cure for arm flab

Marty replaced her "wings" with toned, beautiful arms. And you can too.

Lose Arm Fat - Discover The Truth Behind Arm Toning Exercises

She has two pages in Fit Over 40... too much to cover in an email... but here's the basics to get you started:

1. You have to get your nutrition down pat. Most people think that the flab on their arms (or anywhere for that matter) can be solved by "turning it into muscle."

This is not true folks. Fat does not turn into "anything". It is used for energy. Period.

Muscle is muscle. Fat is fat.

You must use low-insulin nutrition like I recommend in all my books, including Fit Over 40, to lower your bodyfat. For ladies, the back-of-the-arm bodyfat is often the last bit to go.

But I promise -- it will go. I can go for anyone. Marty Web and dozens of other ladies in Fit Over 40 prove that in living color... and they share how they did it.

Low-insulin nutrition means eating more protein-rich foods, foods that are not processed, and plenty of tasty veggies. But it does not mean you cannot have your pizza and burgers here and there. I do every week and my bodyfat is low.

2. You must train your triceps. The back of the arm is made of three muscles called the "triceps". You have a long head, a medial head and a lateral head that form the triceps muscle group.

If you cannot access a gym, you can do plain-old pushups to work all three heads of the triceps. Here's a few tips. First, if you cannot do a pushup with your legs straight, start by doing them on your knees. Work up to straight-legged pushups.

Second, do one third of your reps with your hands facing away from your body, one third with your hands facing toward your body (fingers pointing toward you) and the final third with your hands in the "normal" pushup position, facing the same direction as your body. This will work the various heads nicely.

If you have access to a gym, see the exercises for the triceps found in my book Fit Over 40: << --- say good-bye to arm flab

3. Finally, you have to have a role model. Find someone like Marty who has lost their wings and use their success to inspire you.

Put these three things together and you too will be "grounded" -- wingless, but with a lovely pair of arms that never jiggle and look fantastic.

Hormones and bodyfat

For those who have stubborn bodyfat, you know the kind I am talking about...
it just does not budge no matter what you do...
then you will find this free video helpful.

It's only 16 minutes long and covers the connection between your "hormones" and bodyfat.

Not only bodyfat... Your sexual-drive, your energy, your mood, and of course issues like menopause, andropause (male menopause) and more.

Give it a look...

Just by taking some of Dr. Lucille's advice (natural, without harmful drugs) you can kick-start your hormonal system back into overdrive.

That's the best way to end stubborn bodyfat and reboot your drive at the same time.
