Maybe you have always wanted to exercise but with your busy schedule, it’s just hard to make time for it. We all know that exercising should be done regularly, but you just can’t afford to lose 30 minutes of your day just to go to the gym or jog in the park. but you should know that exercising doesn’t have to take long periods of time. Five minutes of high-intensity workout is enough to pump up your circulation and start to burn some calories.
This workout is designed to help you achieve a functional and balanced total body strength with no need for any gym equipment. You can start doing this in the comfort of your own home in the morning when you wake up for a good morning energy boost.
These exercises to lose weight fast that’s very convenient. Chose one of the 2 interval patterns here and complete the following exercises in order.
Both of them burn calories and build muscle, but the different work-to-rest ratios generate a slightly different metabolic response. Also, alternating between them can help speed up results. If you have more time, do the circuit 3-5 times for a longer sweat session.
30 to 30: You must complete as many reps as you can in 30 secs. then rest for 30 secs. before moving on to the next exercise. Rest 60 secs. at the end if you are doing more than one round.
50 to 10: You must complete as many reps as you can in 50 secs. then rest for 30 secs. before moving on to the next exercise. Rest 10 seconds at the end if you are doing more than one round.
