Fit Check: The Fat-Blasting Holiday Gym Workout
Work every muscle to the bone with this seriously tough calorie-burner.
Last week we shared the 2013 No-Gym Holiday Workout. This time, we’re putting that treadmill to good use with a second fat-blasting workout provided by personal trainer Errick McAdams. Fair warning: It’s a tough one, so get ready to sweat.
1-mile run on the treadmill.
15 lat pull downs (Always pull bar down in front of head and choose a weight that makes the last three reps challenging, but not impossible.)
15 pushups (from the knees if necessary)
15 bodyweight squats
45 jumping jacks
Perform three sets
Run half mile on the treadmill at a faster pace than your mile
Do two sets of round one at 12 reps per exercise and 36 jumping jacks
Run a quarter mile on the treadmill at a faster pace than the half mile
Do at one set of round one at 10 reps per exercise and 30 jumping jacks
