Sit Up

This program is one that was designed for home and/or an outdoor boot camp classes. It requires absolutely no equipment, just your own body weight. The key is to keep moving through each exercise with as little rest as possible to keep the heart rate screaming and the fat blasting. It not only incorporates cardio and resistance exercises, but also explosive movements that will work the whole body. These movements are know as plyometrics and will get those fast twitch muscles working overtime. It is always good to work both the slow twitch fibers (more endurance muscles) as well as the fast twitch (more explosive or “sprint” type muscles). The slow twitch fibers are mainly used in aerobic type activity. The fast twitch fibers are what we use during anaerobic activities….usually high intensity, maximal effort that lasts for 10-30 seconds. In this workout, you will get the best of both worlds!

This routine is considered to be advanced. If you are not up to the fitness level, try cutting taking out some of the more challenging moves or reducing the number of reps.
