10 Minute Time Crunch Workouts for Fat Loss
I told you last week that I would share one of my favorite kettlebell complex with you. You're also going to get a 10 minute sandbag and dumbbell workout. These are perfect if you don't have a lot of time to workout but you still want results.
Also, if you want more information about training with kettlebells, make sure you check out the interview with kettlebell expert Chris Lopez: Kettlebell Interview Part 1 and also Kettlebell Interview Part 2.
There are a couple of ways you can use these following workouts:
1) To replace a workout if you're short on time
2) At the end of a workout to crank up your fat burning furnace
3) To replace traditional cardio (long, slow cardio, intervals, etc)
I'm sure there are other options as well, but you get the point.
A while back I saw someone perform this complex . . . I just can't remember who.
Just be warned about the following kettlebell complex: my snatches and cleans still need some work!
I performed that complex twice with a 16kg (about 35 lb) kettlebell and then went through it once more with a 12kg (about 26 lb) kettlebell. Take notice: you only need a single kettlebell. If you don't have one yet, check them out here: http://WorldsBestKettlebells.com.
That is an incredible workout in a short period of time, and it's tougher than it looks. Definitely give it a try. Not only will that help you burn off body fat better than most other workouts, but you will also improve your conditioning and strength.
10 Minute Sandbag Workout
-Zercher Squat x 10 (see the picture at the beginning of this post)
-Clean & Press x 10
-Bear Hug Carry x 20-50 yards
Perform that circuit as many times as possible in 10 minutes.
10 Minute Dumbbell Workout
If you don't have a kettlebell or sandbag, then definitely give this dumbbell complex a try. You will need two dumbbells to perform this complex.
-Alternating Reverse Lunge with Curl x 10 each side
-Bent Over Row into RDL x 10 (perform a bent over row and then do a RDL)
-Front Squat x 10
-Overhead Press x 10
-Double Dumbbell Swings x 10
Perform those exercises back to back without resting. Perform that complex as many times as possible in 10 minutes. Once again: this one too is harder than it looks!
Give those a try and let me know what you think.
