It's that time of year where we all need to burn those extracalories we consumed during the holidays. I also call this workout"The morning after workout." It will help to get you back on trackwith exercise and burn off those extra calories that inevitablysneak in from time to time.
These exercises are intense and high impact, so try to do thiswork out once a week or save this workout for those specialoccasions when you really need it. Anyone can do this routine,anywhere, anytime, no excuses! Some of the exercises may bechallenging at first, so take your time to build up to the durationand levels. Also remember to eat as clean as possible to make upfor the extra calories that you consumed.
Why not give your metabolism a 25% boost by drinking a proteinshake. Remember skipping meals doesn't work - this will actuallyslow your metabolism down. Budget your foods like you budget yourmoney. If you spent too much yesterday, you need to save moretoday. Almost all of us eat too many carbohydrates and fat so skimpon these two food groups over the next few days. Remember: A properdiet and exercise is the best way to stay in shape and keep yourbody healthy!
