Battle ropes are brutal on the arms, core and legs, and can be seen as a full body workout. A Fat Burning Battle Ropes HIIT Workout can be used as a finisher, warmup (Don’t overdo it) or just a stand alone workout. Incorporating battle ropes into you workout is a fantastic way to really ramp up your metabolism and burn calories.
An example workout:
Perform as many waves as possible in 30-45 seconds. Once complete rest for 30-45 seconds, and then move onto the next exercise in the circuit and repeat. Once finished with the entire circuit. Rest for two to three minutes and repeat for a total of 6 rounds.
Dumbbell Farmer’s Walks are a fantastic low-impact fat burning exercise to incorporate into your routine. The exercise will help to develop core stability, leg strength, calf strength, grip strength and the strength of the entire posterior chain. Just like sled workouts they are similar in the sense that they can be used to develop endurance and also strength and have many other variations. Add a decent amount of weight to that walk, and that bump in intensity really maximizes fat loss and builds strength.
To further maximize your fat burning efforts we recommend incorporating Shred-X Elite Pre Performance Fat Burner into your routine. Available here.
An important factor that needs to be considered when looking to speed up your metabolism is of course meal portions.
Speed lifts (e.g., box squats, speed deads & speed bench) are essential to increasing strength, acceleration and power.
