Strip Away Fat With This 15-Minute Bodyweight Workout

The beauty of this workout is it only takes 15 minutes to complete.

This workout is very simple, but will seriously crush your entire body, especially your legs and abs. I love doing this workout on days when I have little time and can't make it to the gym.

The beauty of this workout is that it only takes 15 minutes to complete. You perform four high-intensity exercises for 40 seconds each with minimal rest between moves. The result is a workout that causes your heart rate to skyrocket and your muscles to ache with fatigue.

And of course, it will help you seriously burn fat.

Here's how you do it:

  • Go for 40 seconds with each move
  • Rest 20 seconds as you move from one move to the next
  • Rest 1 minute between rounds
  • Do 3 rounds total!

Here are the moves:

1. Falling Burpee Jump Tucks

This move is pretty advanced, so if you aren't comfortable with the fall just do a regular Burpee to Jump Tuck. The backpedal on the way back adds more fatigue to your quads so you can expect your legs to be ignited!

2. Side Plank 2-Way Toe Touch

The Side Plank targets your obliques but works your entire body. Touching both out in front and to the side makes your stabilizers work big-time, which will help tighten your belly fast.

3. Mat Speed Shuffle

A little bit of athleticism is required for this one. Stay low and keep your feet moving as fast as you can. Your quads and calves catch fire in about 10 seconds with this one!

4. Lateral Knee Drive Hops

Just in case your legs weren't dead already, this move just absolutely crushes them! Stay low and drive your knees up fast. Every time you drive your knee, you are using your abs and hip flexors. Add that to the fast movement and BAM! You are burning some serious fat!
