Lean Muscle Stretch & Fat Burn: 20 Minute Home Workout

Standard
Please follow and like us:

Hi Everyone!

Today’s workout is a different type of challenge! It utilizes movements that require strength and stretch your muscles at the same time. This is a great way to build lean muscle while maintaining your flexibility. I also incorporated cardio bursts throughout the workout to keep your heart rate up and burn fat. 

I found this routine challenging, and I hope you do too! Push yourself throughout to do the most reps you can with good form. With workouts you get out what you put in, so you really want to challenge yourself. The goal is to challenge your body, work up a sweat, and increase your heart rate. 

Flexibility is also important for all of your workouts because it allows you to utilize your full range of motion during every exercise you do. This means you are using your muscles more fully during each exercise. This workout utilizes each plane of motion to help you achieve muscular balance and strength throughout your body, while maintaining bio-mechanical alignment. 

I followed one round of this workout with a 30-Minute run outside. 

Have fun with this one!

    How many calories did you burnt on this workout? I am just very curious. I have been following you workout for years now, and I did not feel like I am improving, but I am not giving up.

      Typically this type of workout burns between 200-250 calories per round.

      In what way do you not feel like you are improving? Fitness, weight, strength?
