The Perfect New Year’s Workout

2011 is finally here! If you are like most Americans, your resolution for the New Year is to lose weight. Well, what are you waiting for?

Below is a workout that targets the entire body while keeping the heart rate up. By keeping the heart rate elevated, your body will burn more calories and you will see results faster.

The goal of the exercise routine is to continually move from one exercise to the other without stopping. This style of exercise is a form of circuit training, but you will be doing multiple sets grouped together, which are called super sets. For example: the first exercises are a seated row and squat jumps grouped together. Preform 10-20 reps of rows, then 10-20 squat jumps and repeat, then move to the next group of two exercises: the prone leg curl and push-up combination. The goal is to perform two or three sets of ten to twenty repetitions without stopping, except for water, of course.

I recommend performing cardiovascular training three to five days a week to supplement this three day routine. Try and hit cardio for at least thirty to sixty minutes each day and make sure you are sweating. If you are not sweating, you are not training hard enough. Good luck, train hard, and Happy New Year!
