Aim for back to back reps of around 15 to 20 and you will see some significant results with your body shape quite quickly. It’s better to push your body and rest for short periods of time which will keep your heart rate up and your body burning more calories.

How many calories can you expect to burn with each exercise?

As people are obviously different in shape, size, body structure, fitness levels, etc it’s very hard to give an exact calorific figure. However as a ballpoint number, you can expect to lose anywhere between 400 and 500 calories per hour, which is a conservative figure.

But again this does depend on the time you take to exercise, the level of intensity and your diet/body. Ok then, so with the questions over… let’s move onto the fat burning exercises, they are short and too the point.
