…that (dis)-honor goes to “cardio & abs”, which is what so many people fall back on late in the week after they’ve done chest, arms, and maybe a back workout. Forget about that old style of 1990′s training. Doesn’t work. Not only is long cardio followed by endless crunches BORING, but it’s also ineffective for fat loss.
Here’s the solution: ANTI-boring workouts that are short, fast, fun, and effective – AND that can be done with practically NO-equipment, anytime, anywhere.
Choose your workout today from one of the Top 10 workouts from the new “Lean in 17″ program from Certified Turbulence Trainer, Bri “The High-Energy Guy” Kalakay. (Brian co-stars in the Home Workout Revolution videos and is one of our most successful and popular Certified Turbulence Trainers.)
The Top 10 Workouts You MUST Do from www.GetLeanIn17.com
10. “Totally Ripped”
Mountain Spiders, Reaches, and Bears, oh my! Okay I am totally kidding about the bears but not the other two. This workout will literally leave your entire body feeling 127% ripped and energized. Can you say, “get a brand new beach body” workout? Because you’ll have one thanks to this workout!
9. Dear Fat, YOU’RE FIRED!
The huge variety of movements in this one will tell your fat that it is fired. This perfect mix of exercises will jack up your heart rate and burn fat, giving you more cardio and abs than an old-school “cardio & abs” boring workout ever could.
8. The Upper Body Metabolic Attack
This Metabolic Attack starts off with the crazy new “single/single/double pushups” and wages war from there. The only way to burn fat is to attack it like a full-scale battle. Plus, EVERYONE loves upper body exercises.
7. Smells Like Success
If you’re wondering what that smell is after this workout…It’s success! Every lunge variation under the sun is in this one, which means a tighter butt and nicer legs. But what about abs? Well, we have you covered in…
6. The Core Crusher
This is what “cardio & abs” looks like in 2013. Gone are the boring machines and dangerous abs exercises like sit-ups. Instead, you’ll do a metabolic workout with a core crushing twist. This “no crunch” abs workout will develop every muscle in your core and give you a flat, sexy stomach.
5. I Love Burpees
Do you love Burpees? Of course you do! Well here are 4 new burpee variations that will break any plateau and keep your body burning belly fat at double the rate of slow, boring cardio. Plus, this intense workout – and every workout on this list – will give your body a post-workout metabolic afterburn boost, burning hundreds of calories while you rest between workouts.
4. Cinder Block Syndrome
Have you ever got about half way through a workout and your legs are starting to feel a little heavy? Maybe they feel as heavy as cement Cinder Blocks? Well, this workout will have that same effect. But that is GOOD news…because the end result will boost your metabolism and burn fat faster than any long, slow cardio workout ever would.
3. Ripped Abs Assault
I dare you to compare this to traditional “cardio & abs”. The Ripped Abs Assault will blow away any of those old-school workouts and will make your abs feel like they just ran ten 200-meter sprints! Plus, the Ripped Abs Assault will break the boredom of “classic ab exercises” and replace it with cutting edge moves that will develop your core 3 times faster than ever before.
2. Metabolic Lean Legs
If you want leaner, sexier legs, then you’ll get them with this workout. This is the perfect routine for your lower body because it pairs unique compound leg exercises with total body moves. The end result will be accelerated results, faster muscle definition, and beautiful legs. You’ve never seen some of these moves before!
1. Who Needs Treadmills?
This short but effective workout will totally redefine that way you think about traditional cardio. By the end of this you will be asking yourself, “who needs treadmills” for cardio…not you!
Yikes, tough choice on which one to choose for today.
I say go for the Upper Body Metabolic Attack. Let me know how it goes.

“You should do cardio on an empty stomach to burn more fat.”
I bet you know where this is going…after all, I just called it a myth.
Well, first we have to go all the way over to Italy, to hear from researchers who had a study published in the International Journal of Sports Nutrition Exercise and Metabolism (21:48-54, 2011).
The Italian researchers wanted to see what would happen when eight healthy young men did the following workouts:
Workout A: 36 minutes of slow cardio at 65% maximum heart rate in the morning without eating
Workout B: 36 minutes of slow cardio at 65% maximum heart rate in the morning AFTER a small meal
24-hours after exercise, the results found that eating before cardio increased both calorie burning AND fat burning.
That’s right, eating before the workout increased fat burning in the 24-hours after exercise.
The scientists concluded that “fasting before exercise does not enhance lipid utilization; rather, physical activity after a light meal is advisable.”
The truth about fasted cardio is that it is NOT a magical way to boost fat burning.
But the REAL TRUTH about cardio in general is this:
You’re not going to get the best results from slow cardio, fasted or fed. We’ve covered that dozens of times in our TT newsletters here, and you already know to skip it and use interval training or bodyweight exercises instead.
For example, you could try this, the infamous 5 rounds of 5 minutes from the TT Bodyweight Cardio 3 program.
