Today I have a special guest post from my friend and colleague, John Alvino. Check it out…
I get asked all the time, “What is the best fat loss exercise?” In reality, there is no single “best fat loss exercise”. Instead, you must have a database full of several extremely effective fat loss exercises. When you have many great exercises to choose from, you will eliminate mental boredom and physical staleness, and you will always keep your body challenged. This helps ensure continued progress, prevents overuse injuries and keeps you excited to workout.
That being said, I do have some favorites. I will now share with you one fat loss exercise that consistently sits on the top of my list. This exercise is particularly effective and can be performed anywhere without any equipment whatsoever. Even better, it is one of the most time efficient exercises you can do. When done properly, just a few quick minutes of this exercise can burn as much fat as biking for an entire hour!
The exercise that I’m referring to is the Advanced Burpee. Since technique is of the utmost importance when performing this exercise, I will describe to you in detail how to properly execute the Advanced Burpee. Below, I will break down the movement into four simple steps:
1) Stand with a shoulder width stance. Squat down and put your hands on the ground in front of your feet.
2) Next, kick your feet back while lowering your chest to the ground. This step will essentially put you in the bottom position of a push up.
3) Then, push your chest away from the floor while simultaneously thrusting your legs back up into the squat position with the hands still on the floor.
4) Finish the movement by explosively jumping up in the air. Upon landing, quickly drop back down into the squat position and continue for the prescribed number of reps.
There are many ways to integrate this exercise into your routine. Explaining all of the options is beyond the scope of this article. I will, however, give you one simple yet effective option that you can begin utilizing immediately.
Set a timer for five minutes. Perform as many Advanced Burpees as possible during the five minute time period. Only good quality, explosive reps count. Pace yourself. Write down the number of reps performed. Then every time you repeat this workout, try to exceed the number of reps you performed during the previous workout.
Continue this pattern until no more progress can be made. Once this point is reached, it’s time to change your workout.
You now have an extremely effective fat burning routine that utilizes one of the best fat burning exercises. Even better, it takes only five minutes to perform. Work hard and challenge yourself! You’ll be rewarded greatly for it.
