Fast loss, or fat burning is the most common goal for people working out. Most people think fat loss is achieved by doing hundreds of repetitive sit ups or by running miles. What’s more effective, however, is building muscle to replace your fat. That combined with a nutritious, caloric deficit diet will greatly improve your ability to lose fat.

This workout includes a number of high intensity compound movements that are sure to get your blood pumping and make you sweat. As you get stronger and more comfortable with the exercises, you can challenge yourself by adding weight to your squats and lunges, and by doing your mountain climbers on the floor instead of on a bench.

Repping until failure on your last sets of each exercise will help maximize your workout. You can also add cardio to your rest days to help increase your fast loss. Be consistent with your workout and nutrition and you’ll be sure to lose fat and excess jiggle.
