Science has recently proven that intense short burst workouts are much more beneficial than lengthy jogs on the treadmill or rides on the stationary bike. Why? Because vigorous exercise burns more calories, challenges your muscles and metabolism while enabling you to lose weight faster.
Here are 3 of the best intense short burst workouts that I do often.
Kickbox Fastfix is one of the best investments you can make to yourself for under $10! This workout DVD offers three 20-minute intense kickboxing workouts that get your heartbeat up through all kinds of moves that get your heart pumping. Once focuses on lower body, another on upper body and the last on the abdominals. You’re in and you’re out with unbelievable results. Check it out here.
UFIT Ultra Burn is a must have! UFIT stands for ultra focused internal training and it’s just that. The 20-minute cardio segment on this DVD is intense and no-stop, but fun and different from anything else you’ve ever done. The workout consists of about 18 different moves, 1-minute each, set to new song each time.

Ripped in 30 will get your body ripped through circuit training that focuses on 3-minutes of strength, 2-minutes of cardio and then 1-minute of abs.
