Burn More Fat with Bodyweight Power Workout

Bodyweight power workouts will torch body fat and your joints don't take a pounding from lifting heavy weights!

To get your muscles to improve power (how fast your muscles can produce force), do exercises full speed.

You will see your body taking shape faster with power exercises. Your bulky, fast twitch muscle fibers activate more with speed exercises. That is one reason that speed athletes' bodies are so cut.

Bodyweight power exercise circuits are a tried and true method to burn more fat, increase strength/endurance and improve heart health. And, the workouts are short (10-30 minutes).

Do each exercise one after the other with 30 seconds rest between exercises. Rest 2-3 minutes between circuits. Do the circuit 2-3 times. Here is a good bodyweight power workout:

--Medicine ball diagonal chop (pictured above), fast, 5 each side
--Pushups, 10, fast
--Medicine ball rotational throw, fast, 5 each side
--Squat jumps, 10, fast
--Medicine ball slams, 10, fast
--Mountain climbers, fast, 30 seconds
--2-handed medicine ball soccer throw, 10, fast
--Side to side hops, fast, 30 seconds

Use correct form and start torching the fat!
