You may think that you are working hard but if you really want to see results and lose weight fast it is time to turbo-charge your workout routine. It
is not enough to challenge yourself, you have to push yourself to the limit and then go a little farther. The best extreme workout routine to burn calories is
one that will combine aerobic activity and strength training exercises.
The most important thing to remember while doing an extreme workout routine is to move quickly from one activity to the next. Super sets are excellent
for this type of workout where you combine two lifts that work different parts of the body with resting in between. Go right from doing a set of ten
squats into a set of 10 bench presses without stopping in between, then after a short rest do both again. The amount of weight that you lift is not as
important as being able to move at a steady pace. This will add a fat burning element to your strength training.
You need to keep the same mentality throughout your aerobic activity. Instead of a long steady walk, think short bursts of activity. Interval training
will burn calories faster. Examples of interval training are wind sprints, jumping rope or cardio tennis. The key is to go full speed for short amounts
of time and then after a short rest do it again. If you are going to use a treadmill, alternate between short runs and walks.
If you can get outside the gym there are a number of ways to spice up your workouts and achieve dramatic results. Running steps inside a stadium is a
great way to turbo charge a workout. Is there a hill behind your house? Running up the hill several times and then walking back down is an excellent
way to challenge yourself and make sure that you are really pushing yourself to the extreme limit. If you are lucky enough to have an obstacle course
close or a parcourse fitness trail, challenge yourself by tackling it every once in a while. Cross training is very important so that your body doesn't
become accustomed to your usual workout routine.
