Without a doubt, some of the best exercises that burn fat fast are body-weight exercises. Not only are they effective for fat burning, they are also very easy, and obviously very affordable.
If you want to know the 8 best bodyweight exercises known to man keep reading. I have come up with what I think are the best exercises for a total body make over.
After over 30 years of training and experiments, I have rounded out the 8 most intense result producing exercises for building strength, conditioning, agility, quickness, body awareness, and over all athletic ability.
They are: Push ups, Burpees, Prisoner Squat Thrusts, Step ups (At least 10″ to 18″ in height), Pull-ups, Bear crawls, Sprints/Hill Sprints, and Jumping Rope.
Today everyone has the answer and most of the time it comes in a complicated riddle. Most think the longer and more complicated and cooler a workout looks it has got to be the best way to train. And guess what? People still don’t seem to get it.
It all comes down to what you have been told what you have read and what you believe. It comes to down to hard work, and I will continue to push the hard working approach to building real physical fitness that will enhance every area of your life physically and mentally.
There are a ton of great bodyweight exercises out there to build strength and conditioning, but I want the most effective and result producing exercises to get results.
I picked the basic bodyweight exercises, because you need almost no equipment. All you need is the willingness to work hard and sweat. To do step ups you need a step and a jump rope is cheap, and can be carried it anywhere. Pull-ups can be done almost anywhere you can hang, a tree branch, a towel thrown over something, a rafter.
One exercise that I left out is “Dips” I love dips, but it’s a little tougher to find a place to do dips unless you have a dip rack. But include whenever you can.
I will leave you with this workout you can do and one that will make you think twice about complicated workouts.
Start: Do 25 pushups – jump up grab your jump rope and jump rope 50 times as fast as you can – drop the rope – and do 10 burpees. Repeat this as fast as possible for 10 rounds. Total work 250 pushups jumped rope 500 times and 100 burpees.
A lot of work in a short time, and don’t let the simplicity fool you. So I leave it up to you, to see for yourself the results with a simple effective plan. Life is complicated enough, why make your training the same. It’s the little stuff that gives the biggest rewards.
