We all fall into a workout rut from time to time, but these three workout finishers are a great way to pump up your usual routine by finishing with a short, intense mega calorie burn.
Each set of four exercises challenges you to burn as many calories as possible in 4 minutes (at least 30 seconds each exercise, 2 rotations of each). Whether finishing up a cardio or traditional lifting workout, incorporating one of these three interval workouts is an easy way to get in an extra sweat session.
In the video below, Coach Dan demonstrates each workout and exercise, modeling optimal form and giving tips on how to modify (though keep in mind that this is a high-intensity workout no matter how you change it up).

Try integrating up to 10 lbs of free weights on appropriate exercises for more of a challenge. The ultimate goal is to do these exercises as quickly as possible (keeping good form) in 30 seconds, with as little pause in between each exercise. Remember – none of these workouts should be easy if you’re doing them right!
Mega Calorie Burn Workout One (four exercises, 30 seconds each, at least two rotations of each exercise):
Mega Calorie Burn Workout Two (four exercises, 30 seconds each, at least two rotations of each exercise):
Mega Calorie Burn Workout Three (four exercises, 30 seconds each, at least two rotations of each exercise):
Rotate through these three workouts on a weekly basis to work as many muscle groups as you can, burning a ton of extra calories in just 4 (challenging) minutes!
