Ab exercise method that actually burn fat
Don't let the burn you feel in your abs after doing 100 sit ups or crunches fool you to thinking that it's burning belly fat because IT IS NOT. That is the oldest and most outdated misconception you can hold on to.

Bottom line: Where you feel the burn is NOT exactly "the spot" you're burning fat. Read more.

Short workout with big benefits
When I have very little time for a workout, I like to maximize my time with an overall body exercise that truly targets every major muscle of the body in a way that challenges my strength and endurance. Over the years, I've created a lot of different exercises to challenge myself, and therefore, my clients. Here's an oldie, but goodie!

I call it Squat Clean, Squat Press. After couple rounds of light warm-up, try 2-3 sets of 8-12 rep max. Always focus on form, before speed. Enjoy the burn! ;)  Try it now.

How to do a box jump workout (with squats)
Here's a major calorie burner (fat-buster) that will challenge your core power, lower body strength and speed. Try this "box jump-into-a-squat".

Be sure you know how to do a proper squat and jump squat first (which is a great workout in itself). Then, when you're confident in those moves, you can try this box jump workout with one or two steps. In time, as you gain more power, you can add more steps to increase the height.

No matter what height your fitness level allows you to jump, 5 minutes of this (with very short breaks between sets) can surpass what most cardio machines can do for you at a steady state for 20 minutes. You do the math! Check it out!

Total Body Fat-Burn Workout
When returning to the gym after a few weeks off, I like to do an overall body workout at a nice, steady pace to warm up my body and prep it for my next workout. So this means no lifting superheavy or going super intense, instead, just working at around 65% of my usual intensity. This way, I can cooperate with my body and slowly ease it back into routine without shocking it into injuries. Check it out here.

Metabolic workout for fat-burn and strength training
Short workouts can be highly effective and produce huge results if they're done with intensity -- done with a no-nonsense approach. This also means there should always be a few warm up rounds before going full speeds ahead, to properly prepare the mind and body, and prevent injuries!

Here's one of my many "Furious Fives" metabolic workouts that hits every major muscle of the body to the maximum, in no more than 20 minutes (or less time for the more advance). Check it out here.

3-minute core exercise to strengthen, tighten and tone
Here's a 3-minute core exercise combo you can do every other day to strengthen, tighten and tone your core area. (Even your arms will get a great workout!)

 Check it out here.

Push-up combo to build strength and sexy arms
Here's an exciting push-up combo to challenge your body to a higher level of strength, endurance and flexibility; not to mention, will aesthetically produce noticeable results for your upper body composition. ;) Check it out here.

5-minute advance calisthenics fat-burn workout
Rest days are super important for your body to recover and rebuild. Changing up your workouts and the length of time you workout can keep the body guessing and always adapting to stay strong. Some days I workout for half hour, some days maybe 45 minutes. Today, I'm just going to do my short 5-minute intense workout. Watch it here.

I've been trying to make this point: Vacation time does not have to equal "weight gain". So stop fearing this notion. I'll share some tips including one of my many 3-minute workout routines here. Check it out.

This workout is designed to improve your performance in most sports (especially sports such as hockey, golf, swimming). Try it if you want to improve your game. (Or if you simply just want to burn up body fat!) ;) Watch it here.

7-minute total body workout with a pair of DB
Start with 20 wide jump squats to burn up the legs before moving into this workout.

Narrow hand push up, row and rotate into high plank (right side, then repeat the same for the left side). Then, jump into a wide squat clean and press. Repeat this entire sequence for 7 minutes, taking a few shorts breaks (30-60 seconds) when needed or while increasing or decreasing dumbbell load. Watch it here.

How to challenge your upper body strength while tightening and toning all over
Some of my favorite workouts involve the chest, back, shoulders and core area (abs and back, lower and upper). This is one reason why I always make up new programs to challenge these muscle groups, keep things exciting, and keep my posture standing tall and feeling strong!

Here's a workout that involves those muscle groups all in one shot! It's super challenging as it recruits many muscles all at once for proper execution. So needless to say, it's a major calorie burner, as well as, total body strength and conditioning workout. :-) Check it out here.

Here is a short, intense workout involving compound and dynamic movements. Also having multiple joints and muscle groups working at once, with many different exercises involved at the same time.

These kinds of exercises demand so much more from your body's energy systems that it burns major calories in a short period of time while also continuing with its "after-burn" effect long after the workout is over. This is also described as maximizing your calorie expenditure, or boosting your metabolism. ;-) This means you can enjoy more foods and not worry so much! Check it out here.

This one is for all you kickboxing and MMA fans. Total leg and core burn! Try super-setting kickboxing with plyometrics. Total body strength and conditioning. Your heart will race — your entire body will throb. Talk about calorie burn!! Try this workout and add your own spin to it:

Bang out 10 solid reps of rear leg roundhouse kick (right leg). Execute with speed and power. Then, follow it up with 10 reps of one-legged burpees using the same leg. Finish it off with another 10 reps of roundhouse (yes, still using the right leg). (And if you want to challenge your core even more, you can throw out 20 high and low hooks with your right arm to finish it off.) Take a short break. Then do the same for the left side of your body. With each round you repeat, you can decrease your burpee reps. ;) Check it out here!

You don't need to have a gym or any special equipment to do this. You don't even have to get a baby-sitter to watch the kids. Get a MAJOR calorie burn in a short time while challenging your muscle strength and endurance to the maximum — at the playground.

The playground can be a fun, outdoor gym for us adults. There's so much to pull, climb, swing and jump on if you really want to stay active to keep your metabolism revved up. Take the kids there! Or just go on your own when it's not too busy. Check it out here.

10-Minute Body Burn to Blast Fat Fast (Week 1)
All you need to do is workout with me 10 minutes a day from wherever you are. I know you may have been unmotivated in the past, or perhaps you just don't have enough time. Some of you travel and have no access to a gym. 

Some of you think you're "too old" or "too new" for this. If you're fragile and weak it's not because you're old, it's because you have not been using your body the way it was designed to be used. Somewhere along the way, you stopped challenging your body. Without challenge, your body cannot grow strong. Your muscles and bones deteriorate or become fragile when they don't get challenged the right way. And what you don't use, you will lose. 

So no more excuses. Just get it done, right here, right now! I promise to educate and entertain you through the entire workout. Click here. :)

10-Minute Home Workout Series 12: One Wicked Workout to Go!
Conventional training says workouts have to be 45 minutes to an hour to be effective. However, it’s been proven time and time again, in order for a workout to be effective, it's not necessarily about the length of the workout, but more, what you do in the time you have.

Until now, the main option for these problem areas has been the painful, often risky procedure of liposuction.
