Can you boost your metabolism in 10 minutes?
TGIF, my lovelies! Another work week come and gone! I’m linking up with Jill Conyers today for Fitness Friday! I don’t know about you, but I think Friday is a great day to do something different (and maybe slightly more time friendly) when it comes to sweating. Plus, Friday night is for happy hours and takeaways, so why not give your body a fat burning boost first thing? You can increase your metabolic burn up to 250 calories in just 10 minutes. That’s not even the best part, no, the best part is, any continued aerobic activity you do for the rest of the day (flights of stairs, running to catch the bus, etc.) will speed up your metabolism and keep you in the aerobic zone burning fat calories!
Tabata is a great way to get your heart rate, and calorie burn up, and it’s a SUPER time saver. I give a more in-depth explanation of the scientific studies on Tabata training on my Tabata Jump Rope Workout post (another fun, fast, and effective workout)!
All you need for this circuit is 10 minutes and your wonderful, fabulous self. While you don’t need any equipment or much time for this workout, you do need to bring intention and intensity to get the most out of it! Body weight exercises can be just as effective as lifting weights when it comes to building and maintaining muscle mass, an essential component of maintaining a higher metabolism.
This workout circuit can be found on Fitwirr a fantastic website dedicated to keeping health and fitness simple!
This circuit is a total of 10 minutes and includes:
3 Minute Warm-up
4 Minutes Work
3 Minute Cool Down
Grab your timer and get moving!
Tabata workouts are fast paced and intense. Always remember to maintain perfect form while performing these steps, work within a threshold for your particular fitness level, and modify any moves if they are above your level (such as a squat jump).
It is also important that your physician clears you before performing this or any other kind of workout on Beets Per Minute.
