A Total Body Workout For Fat Loss

This total body workout is for those of you who want to AMP it up a little.

missfitnesslife_workfotit2

I designed this workout is to elevate your heart rate whilst developing strength and lean muscle Tone.

This will in return burn a lot of calories, burn a lot of fat and increase your fitness fast.

Its really important to mix up your training to prevent your body from adaptation.

Mixing it up also keeps your workouts fresh and motivating.

Somedays I love just lifting heavy and working my muscles to fatigue.

Other days I just want to get my energy out and push myself thru a more dynamic workout that involves cardio intervals and high reps of strength and dynamic combo exercises.

 I find this works best for my body and my mind…

Enjoy Vix

 

How the “Total Body for fatloss workout” works

  •  There are 5 SETS for you to complete the whole workout
  • Each set has  a number of skips to complete followed by 5 Exercises
  • Complete your  skipping (just 1 x per set)
  • After your skipping complete the number of listed reps of each of the 5  exercises in the exact order below

 * Complete all 5 SETS

– This will total 300 skips and 750 full body REPS reps in TOTAL to shred Fat FAST

BREATHING TIP: always breathe IN on the easy part of the exercise and EXHALE on the hard part of the exercise

 

For this workout I like to use a skipping rope to really elevate my heart rate in a short time.

Skipping TIPS:  Any skipping style is OK but boxer skips are lower impact on your joints – you know one foot in front of the other and hop left to right – ROCKY style)

You can pick up a good skipping rope from most boxing gyms and sports stores for about $14.00

To late to get a skipping rope?  – Then just do the skipping action or jog on the spot.

You will also need a set of hand weights 3kg/6 pounds per hand is IDEAL for Beginners

OK, Here it goes

 

SET 1

100 skips

skipping1

50 jump lunges (50 in total)  – alternating left to right holding the hand weights by your sides
(Beginners TIP: do them is sets of 10 make it easier – or just step to lunge rather then jumping)
(stepping backwards and not going as low is ideal for those with stiff and tight muscles/joints)

Lunge_weighted_women

50 air box punches (50 in total) holding the hand weights

50 MT climbers (50 in total) – keep holding your weights whilst they rest on the floor
(Beginners TIP: do them is sets of 10 make it easier – place your hands on a low step or bench)

mtnclimber_handsonbench1

50 shoulder press

50 side step up cross overs – hop over left to right – (50 overs in total)

(Beginners TIP: do them is sets of 10 make it easier
– no bench – hop over a rolled towel or do alternating lunge slides)

    Hi !

    I am currently trying to loose weight (around 20kg to go) but very soon I will be having an ankle surgery and I will be off my feet (on crutches) , for a couple weeks , what are your ideas in terms of exercise, or regime in continuing my weight-loss (lost 13kg so far).

  • Vix - Miss Fitness Life

    thats a great result so far – good work – re continued loss – nutrition is key
    Number one: focus on nutrition –

    you can train with me personally 6 days per week but if your nutrition is not right – you will not get results in the mirror

    you will have weightloss with nutrition alone

    BUT you will have faster weightloss and tone and shape your body with weight training

    If you can do upper body weights that would be great as I am assuming you wont even be able to swim – aim for 3 upper body weights training and 100% nuteition and you will still get a result each week – vix

    Hi Vix,

    I just found this website and it’s awesome! It’s really motivated me to exercise hard and eat well. I was just wondering if this or any of your other workouts would be good to do daily and if I did do this daily, when should I shake it up?

    Thanks!

  • Vix - Miss Fitness Life

    Reply Reply August 27, 2012

    hi charly – thanx and glad your feeling motivated – depending where you are at and your goals – but if just getting back into it heres my rule for clients when they embark on say a 12 week kick start

    3 workouts per week and eat clean 6 days per week

    On week 4 got to 4 workouts per week

    On week 8 go to 5 workouts

    Nutrition is KEY

    All my workouts are dynamic so that means they target your lean muscles for toning combined with a cardio effect – so more calories burnt – as you are working every large muscle in your body at once your whole body gets evenly toned

    you can do the same workout reps and set and mix up the exercises – so if it says pushups which is chest you can do say flyes which is also chest but hits the muscle in a new way so no adaptation..

    So just go for it and follow thru and you can have the body of your dreams by summer

    thanx vix

    Thanx sooo much for providing a free inspiring healthy lifestyle change that is fun and easy to follow.
    I have a broken arm in plaster cast for 4 weeks another 3 to go, I’m doing yr challenges to the best of my ability excluding or where I can substituting exercises due to my arm.
    Will it take longer to see the same results because I’m 38 yrs old?

      Hey melanie

      Good work for doing your best – just try and sub all the exercises you cannot do with ones you can –

      RE AGE some of my fittest clients with the best bodies are over 35 – I have clients in their 40’s with better and younger looking and more toned bodies then women in their 20’s

      so AGE is not a factor but how committed you are and focussed on your nutrition is – when you are over 25 weights are essential for reshapiong the body and have your body respond FAST – so do what you can until your arm is good and give 100% to your nutrition for max results – thanx vix

    Hey guys!
    Like Charly, I just happened upon this website while on fb and I too, find it really motivating. I think it’s because it takes a human aproach to weightloss and toning which are actually realistic and do-able!
    And I can feel you watching over my shoulder!!

    I wish I could get my partner to do it though- maybe once he sees my results.
    Speaking of which; he took my photo last night and when I looked at it I found it really confronting.
    Do I really look that bad?? Ohh dear!

    As far as cleaning out the [pantry- that just won’t fly with the other half, so I’ve taken to closing the door instead!!
    So far it’s working!!

    Hi,
    Just wanted to say as much as I enjoy your workouts I am very limited in what I can actually do. I have a badly damaged left leg and cannot do things like the pushups etc. Is there another alternative to still give my body the exercise it needs?
    Thanks

    • Vix

      Reply Reply January 15, 2013

      Hey Helen focus on getting the most movement that you can out of your leg so keep working with sports physio/ specialist to get the most out of you leg. 80% of your result will come from nutrition so focus on this as well. The for working out do more of the exercise that you currently can do easily.

    Hi Vix,

    I’m really pumped to get into these workouts. However I get sharp pains in my knees when squatting and lunging what other exercises can I do instead?

    thanks!

    • Vix

      Reply Reply February 4, 2013

      Hi Cassandra in general try this for squats – stand in front of a bench or chair – sit on the bench – sit for a second then stand up pushing thru your heels to make your butt and core do the work not your knees – for lunges instead of steping forward – step backwards and only lower half way – this will far reduce impact and build up strength – if you have injuries always make sure you are getting treatment from a good sports physio and complete the physio recommended exercises/stretches daily to allow for progress – if you are just tight you may need to use a foam roller to release your ITB – ( ITB is your outside thigh muscle) – as tight muscles will pull on your joints causing pain with movement and range of motion – hope this helps vix

    Hi Vix, Im wondering with the diet on day 1-2, am i right by saying the only thing to eat on day 1 is the green veg and drink water? if im right what do i eat day 2 (besides the no sugar rule) do i just be creative with fruits and veg?

    • Vix

      Hey Kristen check out the section in the guide “How To Eat During Your 14 Day Slim Down Challenge” and also this blog post http://www.missfitnesslife.com/how-to-eat-clean/.

      These guidlines are for every day, then the challenges focus on a particular element of your food for that day, so no sugar, 400grams of green veges, so these are part of your day of food, not your whole day of food.

      You dont ever need to be on starvation calories or a restricted list of foods (apart from cutting out processes foods) to get awesome results.

      Reply Reply February 18, 2013

      For toning your tummy its all about body composition – so reducing the percentage of fat in your body overall. Number 1 is nutrition, at least 77% of your result comes from what you are eating. The with your exercise follow the format of the workouts in the challenge, strength, dynamic strength and short cardio intervals reshape the body, whereas hour cardio sessions will leave your body doughy and soft.

      For diet follow my Flat Tummy Diet – theres 6 meal plans, and the guide as well as a big foods list heres all the details http://www.flattummysolution.com

      With alcohol your body doesn’t burn fat while alcohol is in your body and it is packed full of calories- you will get the best results from eliminating your alchohol intake or limiting it to 2 drinks per week

    Hi Vix,

    I haven’t worked out for a very long time and I’m finding these work outs way too hard at the moment my body physically can’t do some of the things like jump lunges and my climbers (lower back issues), but I’m really committed to making this life style change, how so you suggest I modify the work out in the short term until my body gets stronger and fitter?

    • Vix

      Reply Reply March 21, 2013

      Hey Rebekah aim for 20 mins 3 x per week, then increase as your body gets stronger. Do little changes like swap jump lunges to lunges, step in and out of mountain climbers instead of jumping or replace witn cardio like a spin bike or cross trainer/ eliptical. Just step it up gradually and you will shocked at how fast your get fitter and stronger. If you have any persistant injuries to work around use this article as a guide.

    Just wanted to say how great I think your site is. I’m really enjoying the help you’re providing. I am not trying to lose weight as I am already quite small however I do want to tone up. Since my children, things aren’t as firm as they used to be.

    You say to eat up to 5 healthy meals per day. Do I make myself eat even if I’m not hungry? I think I’m so use to eating 3 meals per day that my body doesn’t want more.

    Thanks

      Hi Mia just start with the same amount of food spread out further. After you do this for little while you will build a new habit. The more frequent eating + the strength workouts will make a dramatic difference to your toning.

      Reply Reply July 4, 2013

      Hey T great work!! Because the workouts are full body workouts they cause the blood to “shunt” from your upper body to your lower body. Working out this way burns more fat, even after you stop working out, builds strength and toning and gets your cardio in at the same time. Your body will start to cope heaps better to this style of training after just a few workouts and you will get fitter very quickly. In the meantime concentrate on your breathing during the workouts, and make sure you are taking in a lot of oxygen and not ever holding your breath. Also have plenty of water during the day, plenty of food (here is an example day of food http://www.missfitnesslife.com/a-great-trick-to-eat-your-way-thin/), and focus on eating clean and no caffeine for a few hours before your workout.

      If you are just getting in to it just focus on the workouts I set for Mon, Wed and Fri, as you get stronger (and less sore after each workout!) add the other Workouts. If you have not done strength in your workouts recently, you are really really going to feel it after your first few workouts. When you do strength regularly you are always going to feel it but the good news is you will never be as sore as your first couple of workouts. If you have sore muscles try massaging them with a cricket ball, have a hot bath with Epsom Salts and rub in some tiger balm.
      Going for a walk or swim can also help too.

      You will be pushing out these workouts and feeling great afterwards in no time at all! -Vix

If you are just getting in to it just focus on the workouts I set for Mon, Wed and Fri, as you get stronger (and less sore after each workout!) add the other Workouts. A quick tip – If you have not done strength in your workouts recently, you are really really going to feel it after your first few workouts. When you do strength regularly you are always going to feel it but the good news is you will never be as sore as your first couple of workouts. If you have sore muscles try massaging them with a cricket ball, have a hot bath with Epsom Salts and rub in some tiger balm. Going for a walk or swim can also help too. All the best, Vix

    This workout was awesome! I am SO SORE!!! (in a good way). It looks worse on paper than it is to actually do & I killed 950 calories doing it. I hope I can get out of bed in the morning LOL. Thanks Vix!

    Hi I completed the second day work no worries, took a little longer than expected but I got through all of them ok. Looking forward to day 3 challenge. I must say that prep/eating fresh feels and tastes good – I made my own pasta sauce for the evening dinner, although I didn’t eat the pasta as I had something else accompanying it – i love my sweet potato hehe.. The portions have been good through out the day and i think i am managing well. Today I experienced slight hunger but water/my daily activities takes the crave away. I’m up early this morning, had my breakfast – feel great. Thank you so much – your tips I read are very helpful too.

    Vix love this one. I must admit by no. 48 of the shoulder press with 5kg I was startng to regret taking the bigger weight. I love weight work and have been doing traditional sets and reps. Will this maintain the shape I have already.

      Hey Geraldine- I am glad you are feeling it! Its all about mixing up your workouts for the best result so your body never adapts. So reps, sets and exercises are always changing. For getting toned you dont need the recovery that you will find in old school sets and reps, thats more for gaining bulk. Instead the cardio intervals become your recovery, they help burn more fat and working out that way saves heaps of time as well.

      Hey Jodi! Yep thats the way. So you hold the weights in your hand so your basically leaning on them. Then bring your left knee up to your chest & back down again into the pushup position. Then do the same for the right leg. :) They are an awesome part of the workout hey! All the best!

    Hi vix, I have not done the Friday ans Saturday challenge from first week, but if did all from Monday to Thursday. Can I jump directly on the Monday challenge (2nd week) starting tomorrow. Also I did not loose any weight so far but I am happy that I did exercise 4 times this week. Thanks for putting the challenge up.

      Hey Kapilia- start up with todays workout- that way you can just follow the daily updates.

      It’s also fine to do less that every workout each week when you are getting started.

      Even if you do 3 per week and gradually add more over time then you are going great.

      With you results there are some tricks to make sure that you get an accurate reading:
      First of all never measure at time of the month, your body retains 2-4kg of water and this definitely shows on the scales – see the rest of the tricks by clicking here: http://www.missfitnesslife.com/dos-donts-measuring-scales/
