Maximize Your Fat Blast
For most of us, a little fat burning is never enough. We step, spin and punch our way through workout after workout to sweat off our bumps and bulges. So we decided to get technical and research the absolute best way to take a body from its resting state, when it burns about 1.25 calories per minute, to its fat-burning prime — smoking up to 12 calories per minute. The result: This four-step fat-burning formula, which combines 25 minutes of back-to-back weight moves without rest — a.k.a. supersets — with 30 minutes of aerobic intervals. All you need are 5- to 12-pound dumbbells and a bench. Warm up with light cardio for 10 minutes. Do three sets of 15 repetitions of each exercise within each superset. Vary the order of the strength exercises and the activity choice, as well as the intensity of the aerobic intervals. Do this workout three times a week to turn yourself into a fat-fighting machine! We're featuring Superset #1 here. See the March issue for the rest of the routine.
