Fat Blasting Workout with Dumbbells

Hi everyone!

Lately I've been utilizing the group exercise room at my gym whenever there isn't a class going on. I am fortunate to have a flexible schedule that allows me to go during these times, but you can easily do these workouts in the comfort of your own home. I've been sticking to a lot of HIIT (high intensity interval training) as it keeps me very lean. It helps to burn off the fat around your muscles and organs that helps achieve a lean, jiggle-free body.

I like to incorporate weights into my workouts as well. Below you will see that I implement dumbbells, but if you don't have dumbbells, you can just use body weight. It will still be challenging and effective.

First I did this 10 minute abs workout.

Then I did this lower body workout with weights by Melissa Bender.

Last, I did a HIIT jump roping workout also by Melissa Bender. I was super sweaty at the end. :-)

Remember, doing all steady state cardio (running, spinning, cardio classes) means you will reach a plateau quickly because won't be using any resistance. Your body gets used to certain moves the more you do them, especially steady state, long distance cardio. I can't stress enough the importance of incorporating weights into your workout regimen. I try to do a different workout every single time I work out. I just mix up which ones I do. And as you can see, I just find free workouts online. The possibilities are endless.

If you aren't happy with your results from working out, examine what you're doing. Are you snacking too much or eating a lot of carbs? Are you only doing cardio? Remember: if it doesn't challenge you, it doesn't change you.
