Who doesn’t want a quick workout they can do in a minimal amount of time to burn fat, build muscle and that’ll make them look hotter?
Time is deathly precious these days, and most people’s idea of a fast workout means hopping on the elliptical for 10 or 15 minutes. Now, that workout is unquestionably better than nothing but mind you there are surely more effective ways to burn fat in a short amount of time. In this quick workout video you’ll see how you can burn a ton of fat fast using only three exercises.

Quick Fat Burning Workout Routine:
1. Burpee Pullups x10
2. Kettlebell Goblet Squats x10
3. Incline Sprints x30 sec.
Rest 60-120 seconds.
5 rounds total
The trade-off with these shorter workouts is a dramatic increase in difficulty that will leave a lot of people crying for their mamas. The first exercise is a Burpee Pullup, and you’ll need a pull up bar for this one. If you don’t have a pull up bar than simply jump up with your hands over your head. This is one of my favorite exercises to do to burn fat, but if you ask anybody who knows what a Burpee Pullup is they’ll most likely give you a dirty look and then walk the other way. To properly perform a Burpee Pullup the right way stand underneath a pull-up bar then drop down to the floor bringing your chest down then shoot your legs back up towards your hands. Then stand up and jump to complete a pull up.
Next, is the Kettlebell Goblet Squat and for this exercise I used a 44 pound kettlebell. To do this exercise hold accountable by the handles at chest level. Then with your feet hip width apart you’ll squat down bringing your butt load to the floor. Keeping your back straight as you stand up and press the kettlebell overhead. For women I would recommend using around a 20 pound kettlebell, but men should be using at least 30+ pounds.
The last exercise in this quick workout is going to be incline sprints. I chose to do these on the treadmill because it’s right there in the gym but you could easily replace these with a neighborhood hill that will take you about 30 seconds to sprint up. I set the treadmill at level 9 incline with level 9 for the speed. This is a more advance setting and I would recommend you start much lower to gauge your fitness level. Sprint for 30 seconds before hopping off. Wait 60-120 seconds before repeating for 5 rounds total.
If you’re really a beginner don’t hesitate to pace yourself for this workout. The first round may seem rather easy but after 2-3 rounds you’ll be dying. Of course, I have the die hard attitude so I would go hard for the 5 full rounds before letting up. But, I prefer you didn’t throw up all over the place and/or pass out into a puddle of your own sweat. Hope you like my quick workout video!
