The key to getting a six pack set of abs, to having a hard lean look, and to resemble the individual on the cover of that fitness magazine you always see in the grocery store boils down to speeding up your metabolism. A fast metabolic rate permits your body to burn calories at a very high rate causing you to lose the weight and speed up your overall process of fat-loss. Here are 2 drills that will help you to do just that!
1. The Burpee: If you are looking for me to talk about some low impact low intense exercise for you to accomplish a great fat-burning state then you might as well look somewhere else. To get your metabolic rate stimulated you must stimulate your nervous system. This is done through short intense burst of muscular contractions that can be done through training multi-joint exercise movements. An example of this is the burpee. This is a funny name for an exercise, but is highly effective in helping you to get in shape.
To begin this drill simply stand with your feet shoulder width apart. Squat down and place your hands on the ground in front of you. From here you are in a crouched position. From this crouched position kick your feet back extending your body into an upright push-up position. Next, execute a standard push-up and then immediately kick your feet back up underneath your body bringing you back to the the crouched position. From here simply stand back up. All of these movements constitute a single repetition. Perform 20 of these in a row and you’ll quickly see a workout form before your eyes!
2. Squat and Hold For Time: This is another tremendous and simple exercise that will yield a high level of exertion from you thereby helping you to lose the weight and jumpstart your fitness program. To begin this drill simply stand with your feet about shoulder width distance apart in length. Perform a perfect form squat sitting your hips back until your thighs are parallel to the ground. Once you descend to this position simply hold yourself here for a count to 20. Once you get to 20 stand up and immediately lower yourself back to this position. Keep repeating this until you can accomplish doing it for a full minute without standing up to break. Keep increasing time as you progress!
