Fat burner HIIT bodyweight workout

Where you store fat on your body doesn’t change the way you burn it. There’s no such thing as fat targeting. It doesn’t work. You could spend multiple workouts on your abs, or your obliques to try to melt the muffin top or the lose the love handles. But, if there’s fat stored in those areas, you’re not going to see the results and definition of your hard work. If you want to lean out, you’ll need to burn fat. The only way to successfully do that is to increase your overall calorie burn.

This high intensity bodyweight workout will boost your heart rate and get you sweating for ultimate fat burning. High intensity interval training (HIIT) is great for leaning out because it helps your body increase calorie burning even after your workout’s over.
