This workout will keep your heart rate up, your metabolism cranked, and fatigue your muscles in 20 minutes. Remember the key here is intensity! Use a weight that challenges you around the 8th rep. but not too heavy to go right into the next exercise. So, 6 exercises in a row. 5 minute warm up, 5 minute cool down and stretch.
Remember, a workout like this can stoke your fat burn in your body for up to 36 hours, all by kicking ass for 20 minutes. Now grab some weights, and some water, crank up the ipod, and get sweaty!!!
