Help Yourself Get In The Best Shape – At Any Age:

Hey guys what’s up? It’s mark today to bring you a quick and easy workout that I personally designed as a key component to my new workout program ABS after 40. I like to call this workout functional cardio day.

Now this is important for you guys over 40 to watch because if you have experience with other workout systems such as P90x or Insanity you’ve probably encountered or heard feedback from others stating that catastrophic injuries are often experienced with these systems. The high impact nature of those programs can lead to serious joint, ligament and muscle tear damage that will not help you lose weight at all. In fact these types of injuries were more than likely keeping you fat and out of shape.

Now I’m not saying high impact movements are a complete waste of time. But when it comes to men over 40 there is simply a better way to achieve the fat burning effect you need without the risk of blowing out a knee, twisting an ankle, or busting a hip. Now let me clarify one thing. Low impact does not necessarily mean that I’m suggesting some powder puff geriatric water aerobics class. Forget the water wings guys .I’m going to take you through my personal method for full body toning. It’s functional cardio days fellows.

Functional cardio days are great for guys who are looking to burn body fat fast without the need to perform any side impact movements that more often than not lead to ligament or joint damage. And what’s even better is that you can do this workout right at home. There’s no equipment required on functional cardio days. No grueling hours on seated stationary bikes or treadmills where your heart rate stays at a constant non fat oxidizing state.

With these quick low-impact exercise intervals your entire body will get work leading to faster more efficient weight loss than wasting hours chained to a piece of cardio equipment. You’ll get it in and be done in 15 minutes or less. This workout is an absolute staple of my abs after 40 program. There’s no better time than now to start your fitness transformation guys.

So let’s get into what a functional cardio day actually looks like. We’re going to be knocking out five different exercises for 10 reps each. You may take rest as needed. But keep in mind that the goal here is to keep your heart rate elevated in the fat burning, training zone. So for best results try to keep your rest minimal. Take about 30 to 60 seconds of full rest between each cycle. The program calls for three total cycles. So pay close attention to my form and intensity as I demonstrate exactly what I’m expecting from you guys in the performance Department.

The exercises we will be performing will be number one lateral lunges, two decline push-ups, three reverse plank kicks, four bench dips, and finally, fifth, shoulder touch planks.

Let’s go. Follow along and watch my form as I show you how to do these five exercises. Okay.

First of all we’re going to start with lateral lunges. They may seem really easy but you need to do slow controlled movements, and go as deep as your body will let you. If your knees or your back starts to hurt go half way down. So it’s as simple as this. Lateral lunges, hands in the middle. You take a step to one side and a step back. That’s one, two, three, four, gosh, six, seven, Hey 9. Yeah.

And right after that, no rest, we’re going to go into decline push-ups. Three, five, six, seven, eight, nine, and ten.

All right, no more rest. h\How about some reverse plank kicks now? All right. So it was this all fours. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, nine, yeah.

All right. .Into those, no rest, straight over here Let’s do some bench dips. Lean out on – yes. Hey, nine, ten. Okay.

No more rest. All right. Last thing we can do is shoulder touch planks. Okay. Spread out like this and we’re going to go: one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten.

Alright guys. That’s one complete cycle: five exercise, no rest in between. I’m going to take about 30 seconds you can take up to a minute or longer. Just catch your breath. As you can see they may look easy but when you do them back to back to back, you really get your heart rate up, it keeps your blood pumping.

We start burning more calories at the same time. That we’re actually working our muscles. I got about another 15 seconds so I’m gonna do it all over again.

Now guys, if after three cycles of this you feel like you can keep going, please please hit it harder. There’s nothing that says you have to stop at three. Three is the bare minimum I want out of you though. Okay, four or five or six is fantastic. The more you put into it the more you’re going to get out of it. Simple as that.
