How to burn more fat every workout
Do you ever question whether your workouts are enough to burn the fat and achieve the body you are looking for?
Do you feel like you wing it and keep adding more and more “stuff” to your workouts hoping that it will work?
Do you feel like your workouts are cookie cutter and not targeting your stubborn body parts and trouble areas?
I call them workout finishers. What is a finisher? Simply stated you will be extending your work out by 5, 10 or even 15 minutes each time.
To get the most out of these finishers you will combine a cardio movement like jumping jacks, mountain runners, sprint’s or the stepper with an exercise targeting your stubborn areas like squats, lunges, hip bridges.
To keep your heart rate up you should alternate between 30 seconds up to 2 minutes of your cardio exercise, then 20 repetitions for one or two stubborn body parts, then repeat for a total of 5 minutes for beginners, 10 minutes for advanced and 15 minutes if you are trying to make a huge transformation!
This little change is going to make a huge difference and not only your overall physique and fat loss, but also to shred those pesky love handles, saddlebags or sagging under arms.

The reason this works so well is because your heart rate is already elevated, your body is already in a depleted state from your workout and your body is primed for fat burning.
