Sometimes life just "gets in the way" and we can't always make it to the gym. But that doesn't mean you still can't get in a good workout!
If you're going to focus on just ONE type of workout to get you through the day, go for the lower-body. Your legs and glutes are the biggest muscles in your body. And there are plenty of lower-body focused exercises that work the rest of your body as well. See below.
Increasing muscle mass in your lower body will not only make your legs more toned, it will help you burn more calories throughout the day! Some experts indicate that 1 pound of muscle burns an extra 50 calories a day while at rest — so if you gain 10 pounds of muscle, your resting metabolic rate (RMR) soars by an extra 500 calories each day!
Use my formula below for easily creating your own fat burning workout.
Tip: for all of the exercises below keep your back flat, belly in, and a tall chest.

Finally, always consult with a physician before beginning any new workout routines. I'm not one or pretending to be one on the internet ;)
