A 15-Minute Workout That Torches Fat

Intense, efficient workouts are better than long leisurely ones. Try this 15-minute fat torcher from STACK Expert Ben Budro.

You don't always need a one-hour workout to make gains or maintain your athleticism. In my experience, both as an athlete and a coach, the more efficient the workout, the better.

Crammed for time but still want to get in a fat-sizzling workout at home? Awesome! All you need are 15 minutes, something to elevate your feet (if you're tough enough) and some motivation.

This is the workout I prescribe to my clients for the night after their "cheat night." It's a full-body workout that will have you dripping sweat from start to finish.

Depletion At-Home Workout


  • Split-Squat Jumps
  • Push-Ups (elevate your feet to make it harder)
  • V-Ups


10, 20, 30, 20, 10

How to: 

  • 10 Split-Squat Jumps
  • 10 Push-Ups
  • 10 V-Ups
  • Do 20 of each, then 30 of each, then 20 again, then 10 again.

Each rep of this workout should be performed at an "all-out" intensity. This requires you to tap into the ATP-PCr energy system, which burns carbs and trains the Type-II fibers in your body. To recover from that level of intensity, your body has to really work to come back down. That hard work burns fat and calories. The end result: You get ripped fast. Sound good?

15 minutes and just your body. No excuses. Get it done.
