3 Quick And Effective Full Body Workouts To Torch Calories

It's the new year! Which means fresh resolutions, and officially returning to the grind after back-to-back long weekends and heaps of partying. If you let loose during the festive season, or are looking to get fit in the coming year but aren't quite sure how to get on your feet again, try doing full-body circuit workouts. They're fast, intense, highly effective, and torch a ton of calories even after you're done sweating. All it takes is a little determination and consistency.

Circuit workouts are a regimen that requires constant movement, perhaps for about 10 minutes each time before a quick rest and repeat. The idea isn't just to always move, but to switch up the intensity and keep your muscles constantly guessing what comes next.

For an all-over fat blaster for weight loss, give this workout a shot. It can be done at the gym, or at home as you do not need any equipment. Do these workouts each day, or mix them up within the same time frame for three weeks, and you're bound to see a difference.
