Got 20 minutes? If you do, then this lunchtime workout is perfect for you. We've created this simple circuit that you should do during your hour lunch right before eating.
We recommend that you do this right before lunchtime (or any meal really) because you will be in a fasted state and your body will be forced to burn fat instead of muscle or energy that would have been sourced from food. Studies show that women who exercise in a fasted state use more stored fat than muscle.
Be sure to plan your meal beforehand, so you don't go into Monster Mayhem and devour an entire jar of peanut butter. After this workout, it would be smart to eat a balanced carb-protein-fat meal. Aim for 25-30 grams of protein and solid complex carbohydrate. A peanut butter sandwich and celery sticks wouldn't be bad. Or a protein smoothie (may we suggest a peanut butter banana smoothie).
If you are doing this before breakfast, maybe you will eat a spinach omelet, or a blueberry banana spinach smoothie. No matter what, make it a smart choice.
Okay, enough talking! Here's your workout:
