Yesterday, we talked about “1000 Calorie Accelerators” – workouts designed to help you burn up to 1000 calories in a single session!
Today, I have a 10 minute circuit from the program that you can try.
Now to be clear, this 10 minute workout obviously does not burn 1000 calories in itself … it’s a PART of a full 1000 calorie workout, and it gives you an idea of what the workouts and full program are like.
Let’s get right into it –
1000 Calorie Accelerator Workout, Circuit 4: Fat Loss Accelerator
– Do as many reps as possible in 45 seconds with perfect form
– Rest 15 seconds between exercises
– Repeat for 2 rounds (10 minutes total)
from Kate Vidulich, creator, 1000 Calorie Accelerators
— walkout to push up
— ski jump
— alternating reverse prisoner lunge
— squat thrust
— kettlebell swing
Here’s the video where Kate walks you through how to do the workout:
So – WHY is this training style so effective?
A few basic reasons:
— This workout style allows you to boost your metabolism without killing any one muscle group, allowing you to burn more calories faster with total body movements.
— You only need one weighted resistance (such as a pair of dumbbells), and a small workout space.
— Metabolic workouts, like this one, increase the afterburn effect to significantly higher levels than traditional cardio workouts, meaning you burn more calories after the workout, while at rest.
And that’s just to start.
I’m going to “steal” this circuit, and use it in one of our boot camp workouts today at FVT – thanks Kate! 😉
