One exercise to keep fat burning

One exercise to keep fat burning

Just imagine if you could burn calories while you weren’t exercising. After you’ve finished your workout, you just keep burning fat.

This so-called “afterburn” effect can be achieved, as long as the exercise you do is intense enough to keep the calories dropping off hours after you’ve finished.

One exercise is all you need to keep this afterburn going long and strong.

Kettlebell sumo deadlift jump

The Kettlebell sumo deadlift jump (yes, it’s a bit of a mouthful) is perfect for working your whole body to have a massive effect on fat-burning.

All you need is a kettlebell and to be a bit light on your feet.

Begin with the kettlebell on the ground just between your legs which should be around hip width apart. Go to sit down and grab the handle of the kettlebell with both hands. Spread the hips and pull your shoulders down and back.

Then you need to explosively drive through the floor, and jump up and land softly.

Repeat 10 reps in each minute, for 10 minutes.

The explosive power of this exercise means that the hard work you put in will keep paying off as it will boost your metabolism and ensure the fat-burning effects of your exercise keep going long after you’ve finished your workout.

I have always thought kettlebells are very overrated and expensive. Just use dumbbells for the same thing.

This sounds too good to be true, but I like the simple sound of it. Shame I don't own any kettlebells.
