As the holidays roll around we are rushing around eating to much and not exercising enough, we are getting stressed out.
There is no reason you need to miss a workout when you learn how to use your bodyweight effectively.
You can get a great workout in as little as 4 minutes, yes 4 minutes and if you think this is impossible you will be in for a treat.
If you believe the fitness gurus, doctors, and fitness magazines you will think there is no way you can get an effective workout in 4 minutes.
If these so called fitness experts tell you that there is no way to get a great fat burning exercise in as little as 4 minutes they have not tried it, or did their research.
These are the same workouts I used to lose over 82 lbs in 7 months, so I know these short intense workouts are very effective.
Let me try to prove a small point, people that go to the gym and exercise, lifting weights, walking on the treadmill, riding the exercise bikes or jogging are getting in their exercise and according to the research this is the way to get in shape to live a longer life.
But, when it snows and these people do a simple activity like shoveling snow they fall over with a heart attack, how can this be.
Because we have gotten away from real physical fitness and nutrition, we believe what ever we hear or read, without actually doing our own research.
Most people are not physically fit enough to do simple activities and that's where the 4 minute workout comes in.
I will give you a quick 4 minute workout that will work the whole body in only 4 minutes and the exercise is called The 8-count bodybuilder and it's very demanding and should not be done by anyone not healthy or physically fit.
Start in a standing position.
1. Squat down and put your hands on the ground in front of you.
2. Kick your legs back into a pushup position.
3 & 4. At the same time you kick your legs back you do a pushup.
5 & 6. Then kick your legs out to the side and then back( when you kick out you should be in the shape of a Y)
7. Bring you legs back under you.
8. Stand up.
This is 1 repetition and you are to continue this for 4 minutes and this will soon have you believing that in 4 minutes you can get in a great fat burning workout.
