Full Body Fat Burning Workout (That You Can Do Anytime… Anywhere!)


It’s January (as of writing this!), the nights are cold, winter is in full flow and body fat is probably at it’s highest (after the Christmas feast!). It can be tough to get motivated and know where to start when it comes to losing weight and getting fit.

That’s exactly my motivation behind this post, I want to help you.

I’m providing you with a FREE guide, a fat busting workout that you can do anytime, anywhere and with very little equipment (you only need a pair of dumbbells!).

Below you’ll find your exercise portfolio + your full body fat burning workout. I hope you enjoy and please get in touch if you have any questions and seek further help.

1. Static Glute Bridge

Lying down on the floor, cross your arms and bend you knees to 90 degrees keeping your feet firmly planted on the floor. Push yourself up into the bridge position (shown in the picture) and contract your gluteus maximus and hamstrings by pushing down hard into the floor. Stay in this static position for the duration of your set making sure to clench you butt throughout.

2. One Legged Glute Raise

Lying down on your back lift one leg straight in the air and bend the other leg (90 degrees). Plant the bent leg firmly into the floor and then start to push down into the floor so your hamstrings and gluteus maximus start contracting. Now lift up and squeeze to the top (see second image). Finally, lower yourself back to the ground (maintaining tension) before repeating.

Pick up a pair of DB’s. Stand up straight and freeze your upper body (lock it in place), bend your knees slightly, then lock your legs in place. Hinge back using the hips. Maintain a neutral spine and focus on pushing the hips backwards to gain a hamstring stretch. At the bottom position push hard into the floor and squeeze your hamstrings and gluteus maximus as your return to the starting position .

4. Squat

Stood up, holding a pair of dumbbells, keep your spine neutral and push your feet firmly into the floor tensing your thigh muscles. Keep this tension and squat down to 90 degrees. Squeeze your glute muscles and push back up to the starting position.

5. Dumbbell Skull Crushers

Lying on the floor, grab a pair of dumbbells, get your arms straight and then bend at the elbow, lowering the DB’s slowly to 90 degrees. At the bottom (just above your head)  pause for 1 second before squeezing the weights back up to the top position using the triceps.

6. Wide Grip Push Up

How to perform a wide grip push up

Place hands on the floor (just outside shoulder width). Press down into the floor as hard as you can to create tension in the chest and triceps. Then lower yourself down to the floor, squeeze your chest and push yourself back up to the top. If you struggle to complete a full push up then start building up by keeping your knees on the floor.
