Ultimate Calorie Burner Workout

With the festive season beginning, it may seem all too tempting to sacrifice 30 minutes of exercise for that extra drink at the bar or any of those celebratory indulgences! While we could easily come up with an extensive list of excuses to ditch our fitness regime during the holidays, we could also just modify our workouts to make them quick and efficient instead!

We’ve come up with the perfect HIIT style functional workout to help counter some of those extra holiday calories. It’s fun, challenging and aimed at increasing your heart rate rapidly by engaging multiple muscles throughout each exercise! The more muscles you work, the more you’ll burn! Not only that, but the workout is programmed to rev up your metabolism, meaning you’ll continue burning for calories for hours after your workout is finished!

Note: 2 min rest is only to be completed after each circuit.  When choosing the weight of the medicine balls and dumbbells, make sure that it will be a challenge to complete the circuit.

What you need:

Warm up: Continuous rotation for 3 minutes

CIRCUIT 1: 5 minutes continuous – as many rounds as possible (AMRAP)

Exercise instructions:

CIRCUIT 2: 4 rounds of each

Exercise instructions:

CIRCUIT 3: 4 rounds of each
