Challenge Yourself With A New 40 Min Total Body Strength Workout

Building strength while elevating the heart rate means you’re burning calories and fat while you increase lean muscle mass.  It’s a win, win.

You can be one of the first to try BeFit’s 40 Minute Total Body Strength Mobile Workout – Circuit 1.  This workout has some challenging moves for lower body, upper body and core minus the intricate footwork some workout programs require you to learn.

Ten minute workouts are excellent and effective when you’re short on time, but sometimes you need a little more.  Now – as we head into the season of bare legs, shoulders and abs – is one of those times.

I did this workout this afternoon and loved it.  Especially the core segment at the end.  If you have a five or six pound medicine ball for the core work you’ll see your results sooner.  You’ll also need a set of dumbbells at the weight of your choice for the strength moves.

Why A 40 Minute Total Body Workout?

Here are three reasons, although there are plenty more.

1.  Ideal for Fat Loss – For people looking for fat loss, a full body workout is ideal for losing weight.  By elevating your heart rate while building strength and lean muscle tone, your body will burn a ton of calories. You’ll keep your workouts fresh and motivating by mixing up your routine.

2.  Increased Recovery Rate – By doing a full body workout, you give your muscles maximum recovery time by taking at least one day off between each full body workout. A reason some people do not progress in their workout program is because they aren’t recovering from session to session.

3. Lower Time Commitment  – If you’re too busy to hit the gym four times a week, a full body workout program will be great for your schedule. Since full body workouts can be performed over just two or three days a week, it gives you more time to fulfill your other obligations. Even if it takes slightly longer in the gym to complete, it will save you time on a weekly basis.

It’s a mistake to underestimate the challenge of her workouts, including the one posted here.
