This workout is a quick 8 minute workout designed to boost your metabolism and get your body burning fat and working optimally. It is great for when you don’t have a lot of time. But this workout, like all of the metabolism booster workouts can be made longer to get more of a workout in by repeating or lengthening the rounds. I put some options below and I did option 1. In this workout a cardio round is alternated with 6 minutes of intervals using the Ugi ball. Ugi is awesome! But if you don’t have one, the exercises can also be done with bodyweight or by substituting another ball or weighted object.¬†

Here are a few ways this workout can be lengthened:

1. Make the intervals in the 2nd part longer. Try 12 minutes, so set your timer for 16 rounds instead.

2. Double everything 200 reps skipping or high knees and 12 minutes of intervals, as mentioned above.

3. Add a part 4 (intervals, same as part 2) and a part 5 (cardio, same as parts 1 and 3).

Exercise Descriptions

High Knees

 

From standing, bring legs up with knees bent one at a time as high as you can. You can put hands out parallel to ground and try to hit hands with knees as you bring them up, alternating legs and doing this as quickly as you can. This exercise is like running on the spot, except that you are keeping back straight and driving knees up high with every rep.
