Pre Turkey Dinner Workout - Cardio and Strength Training (Week 5)

Hope you enjoyed Week 4 of the 10-Minute Body Burn with Me. Get the full details on Week 5 workout here.



Before you even devour that huge meal, let's rev up your metabolism to burn fat. You can start burning a ton of calories before you even put the calories in your body.

This workout is designed to produce an "after-burn effect." This means you will continue to burn more calories even after the workout is over because your body will be expending more energy through the day in order to recover from the workout. So you can have that festive meal without guilt! 

Let's have fun together! Put in your best effort—no matter what fitness level you are, you can create the after-burn effect with me. Let's get on it right now! :)

Here are the details on this workout:

Perform this Giant Set sequence of moves (Move as fast as you can in proper form)
- 60 seconds - 3 lateral jump squat (reaching down outside the foot); climb forward into 4 spider climbers; climb back up and do 1 knee tuck; climb back forward into 2 push ups with shoulder taps.
- 30 seconds - alternating leg up crunch (or v-sit-up)
- 20 seconds - plank jump jacks, and/or plank with alternating contra-lateral raise
- 10 seconds - bicycle
Repeat this giant set 3 rounds back-to-back with little to no rest.

It would be ideal to execute this *WOW twice in the same day or back-to-back, if you want to see even better results! :)
