Bodyweight MEP-Scorcher

January 24, 2017

If you’re like us, you’ve got big goals for your health and fitness in 2017, but we know that all too often challenges will get in the way of our workouts. That’s why all you need for this workout is your MYZONE belt! No gym, no equipment – you can do this one anytime, anywhere. Let’s blast come calories and earn serious MEPs with this MEP-scorching, heart rate bodyweight workout!

The workout we’re about to describe is TOUGH, but you can change it up to fit your needs. Adjust the rest and work periods for longer or shorter, depending on what you’re up for that day. Remember to emphasize form over speed; if you need to slow down to maintain proper form, please do so!

Instructions:

Following a dynamic warm-up, perform all four exercises in Circuit #1 for 60 seconds each. Once you’ve gone through Circuit #1 once, take a 60-second rest and repeat the circuit for a total of 2-3 sets. Move onto Circuit #2 and follow the same protocol for Circuit #2 and Circuit #3. You can expect this workout to take 40-60 minutes depending on if you do two or three sets of each circuit. We’ll demo each heart rate bodyweight workout in an upcoming Fitness Friday broadcast, so stay tuned!
