I have been building these types of workouts for years and I’m just now learning they have been coined… metabolic workouts. There are many variations of that, but here’s what you need to know when it comes to tightening and toning and workouts like these…

They spike your cardiovascular system elevating your heart rate and relaxing it. At the same time, they are building your lean muscle mass with resistance and working on endurance work.

A workout like this is the very definition of tightening, toning, and fat blasting. The best part is you can push yourself really hard but still be within your capabilities… so all that matters is what you can do.

Here’s the Workout:

  • Right Plank Crunches
  • Left Plank Crunches
  • Jump Rope
  • Plank Up/Downs
  • Slow Jumping Jacks

To do this workout, set your timer for 30 seconds of work and 10 seconds of break. Do three rounds total or if you want to go more, go for it.

BONUS: If you want a bonus and you think you have what it takes, do the jump roping in reverse. It’s hard but a great way to stretch your body.

Notes On This Workout:

This is a tester workout. Typically, I will do longer ones that have more variety which you can find at Fit Women’s Weekly.

However, you are going to feel this workout. The key points to remember are:

  • Push yourself to YOUR limit.
  • When you feel like resting, pump out at least one more rep… you can always do one more.
  • Listen to your body but ignore it unless you have an actual injury.
  • Remember to breath… do not hold your breath.
  • Go into every workout with a fun attitude… never dread moving and grooving.
