Fat Burning Step Up, Mountain Climber and Core Workout

If you want an effective, intense strength/cardio workout, try step ups, mountain climbers and medicine ball diagonal chops for 20 minutes. You will never be bored and you will burn more calories and fat.

Bodyweight cardio is a great way to change up your routine. Also, you will tone your body faster because of the strength component in the workout.

Because machines stabilize your body for you, bodyweight exercises help you develop strength that allows your body to stabilize itself.

Some of you don't get significant results with fat loss because you do the same thing for cardio exercise most of the time! Get off the treadmill and elliptical machines and challenge yourself!

Do the workout this way (do circuit 4 times with little or no rest between exercises):

--Step ups, knee high platform, 10 repetitions each leg
--Mountain climbers, fast, 30 seconds
--Medicine ball diagonal chops, 10 each side
--Rest two minutes and repeat circuit

You're finished! You can pick any three bodyweight exercises that you like for this circuit.
