Weight Loss Motivation on Black Friday

You might get motivation to burn fat and lose weight while shopping for clothes on Black Friday. How?

Why clothes shopping? According to an article in Fitness Magazine, 88% of women say a shopping trip to buy clothes "woke them up" about the size of their bodies.

And, 41% say they started working out after a clothes shopping trip (20% of those actually stayed with their workout programs).

And, the body parts these women wanted to improve most: waist, butt, legs and hips....not surprising.....

Here's how to do just that: start today shaping your body with these workouts:

Note:  Here's a huge secret you need to know....ready?   Walk at least 30 minutes, briskly paced, every day (whether you workout or not).  This one tip will make a big difference in your fitness and body shape over time.  It helps keep your metabolism active during the day.  One 15-minute walk in the morning and a 15-minute walk in the evening would be even better.  Start today.

Try these 2 shuttle runs for interval cardio in your workouts to burn more fat (run on grass or rubber surface):

Speed Shuttle Drill or 5-10-5 Cone Drill - Place three cones in a straight line, 5 yards apart. Start in a 2-point or 3-point stance at the middle cone.

Run as fast as you can to the left cone (5 yds) and touch ground with your hand, run as fast as you can to the right cone (10 yds) and touch ground with your hand and finish running through the middle cone. That's one repetition. Rest 1 minute between sets. Do 8-10 sets per workout session.

Speed Endurance Shuttle Run - Place cones at 5, 10, 15, 20 and 30 yards. Sprint to the 5 yard cone and sprint back to the start. Then, sprint to the 10 yard cone and sprint back to the start. The same would be done at the 15, 20 and 30 yard cones. That is one set. Rest for 2 minutes between sets. Do 3-5 sets.

Here is a good 30-minute dumbbell strength circuit workout for you to do:

Do each exercise one after the other with 30 seconds rest between exercises. Rest 2 minutes between circuits. Do the circuit 3-4 times.

1. Dumbbell clock lunges, 5 reps each leg, moderate pace

2. Dumbbell chest press on swiss ball, 10 reps, moderate pace

3. Dumbbell bentover rows, 10 reps, moderate pace

4. Dumbbell step ups (knee high platform), 10 reps each leg, moderate pace

5. Dumbbell standing shoulder press, 10 reps, moderate pace

6. Bodyweight or dumbbell squat jumps, 10 reps, fast

You can do this workout anywhere, anytime and you're finished in 30 minutes!
