Today I want to show you a couple of videos that I filmed on my vacation in May.
The first video is an example of a dumbbell complex that you can use for weight loss and fat burning. All you need is a set of dumbbells.
You can do this dumbbell complex at the end of your workout for a fat burning boost, or do them on your off days. With the dumbbell complex you want to use the heaviest weight possible but still perform each rep perfectly; no sloppy reps allowed.
Feel free to do more total sets of the dumbbell complex if you’re up to it. This complex looks deceptively easy. Give it a try, and I guarantee you will be humbled if you stick to the prescribed rest periods. Dumbbell complexes are one of my favorite methods for fat loss. They are very fast, and very effective. If you haven’t tried them before, give it go this week.
Next I have a bodyweight workout for you. In the video I call this a beginner bodyweight workout circuit. If you find the prescribed sets and reps too easy, feel free to kick it up a notch to match your level of conditioning.
For example, feel free to increase the reps for each bodyweight exercise. You can also decrease the rest periods and do more total sets. The great thing about bodyweight workouts is that they are completely scalable to different levels.
Once again you can do this bodyweight workout at the end of your training session or you can do it on your off days. Bodyweight workouts (and the dumbbell circuit) are a great replacement for traditional cardio and/or interval training.
Here’s a video I made just for fun. If you find yourself at the beach, give this a try. You may want to wear sunglasses. You’ll see what I mean . . .
