Plyometric exercises are basically explosive movements such as box jumps or "jumping jacks", that help to build strong muscles and burn up to 10 calories per minute.
The trick is to use fast but controlled movements. We are then forcing our body to engage more muscle groups during the exercise.
During these exercises do not forget to wear a high-impact sports bra. Read our guide on how to choose the right sports bra.
High intensity workouts burn calories during and up to 24h after. This type of training involves repeated bouts of high intensity effort followed by varied recovery times.
Studies proof that a 20 minute workout is enough to cause changes to our muscles DNA so let´s go!
Supersetting is to do two exercises for the same muscle group at once. These can be performed using weights or no weights at all.
Having no rest time between exercises will keep your heart rate high and will make you burn more fat in less time.
