How to Burn 400 Calories in 4 Minutes

Hard to believe right? I myself is in disbelief when I heard this in a local TV show sometime last year in December but according to a Fitness First Trainer the steps below are medically proven to burn the 400 calories in just 4 minutes!

I know a lot of people will be eager to learn and know what are the exercises behind these "magic" so let's start the ball rolling:

1. In a mat, make yourself in a plank position. Stay in that position for 10 seconds.

2. Next is the squat wherein you raise your hands in a surrender-like position then start bending your knees at the same time while they are apart. Count from 1 to 10 (no need to use a wall for this exercise).

3. Next is the lunge wherein you put your one foot forward then bend the other knee. Do this alternately with your other leg and foot. Count from 1 to 10.
4. Push-up for 10 counts on the mat.
5. Crunches/situps for 10 counts on the mat.

Do these five steps repeatedly until you consume the 4 minutes ;)
Say hello to a fit and healthy you through these exercises!


As for me, I will be starting doing this program later today as soon as I get home. I've been absent in the exercise department since November but now I'm so dedicated to get a toned body like last year ;)
