An excellent choice that will give you multiple benefits is plyometric routines. Plyometric routines are fast paced workouts that quickly burns calories. Besides being a great calorie burner, plyometric routines will help to speed your muscle response times, improve your posture and also improve your flexibility.
If plyometric training is to high impact another great calorie burning workout is Tae Bo. There are several Tae Bo workout video’s available that you can literally do from the comfort of your home. If you prefer more instruction then most gyms have one version or another of Tae Bo classes available.
One of my personal favorites is Boot Camp training Workouts. These are also available in at home videos or at your local gym. The one thing that I really like about this kind of training is that it has dual benefits. It gives you a great cardio workout while also providing muscle conditioning.
Regardless of which route you go, you’ll see results. These are all high impact, ensuring that you aren’t wasting your time. Most of all they’re fun, as you know if it isn’t fun you’re probably not going to stick with it.
