15-Minute Morning Workout to Boost Metabolism

Pushup

Last Thursday morning, as I sat in the Denver airport before my flight home to Toronto, an email from Men’s Health magazine showed up in my inbox.

There was a cool link to a Morning Metabolic workout. I clicked on it… and read an article from myself! Ha. I totally forgot about giving them this workout back in 2014.

So I’ve updated it for YOU (below) so you can burn a ton of calories this morning.

But first, I want to show you what I was doing in Denver… Every December we participate in an event called Toys for Tots. It’s a charity drive run by the United States Marine Corps. This year our group bought over 7,500 toys for kids in the Denver area that would otherwise wake up without one on Christmas (each year the Marines need 96,000 toys just for Denver alone!).

Now back to your metabolism boosting morning workout…

The right morning routine done in the morning can elevate your fat burning all day long. But you must do intense exercises back-to-back exercises with minimal rest.

Here’s how it works:

  • Perform the following exercises in a row with as little rest as possible.
  • But rest whenever and wherever you need to!
  • Repeat the circuit 3 times for a total of 300 reps.
  • Try to complete all 300 reps in 15 minutes or less.
  • If you don’t finish all 300-in-15, try to beat your rep count next time.
  • If you do finish all 300, try to beat your time during the next workout.
  • The goal is to do the workout as quickly as possible, but make sure you maintain proper form and rest when you need to.

PPPS – Remember this approach to life…

…even over the busy holiday season:

A good approach to life: Act polite and courteous. Do not swear or speak poorly of others. Be virtuous and avoid vices. Live well. Live long. Leave a legacy. Nourish your body and support your energy with healthy living – nutritious food, regular exercise, and 7-8 hours of sleep per night. Meditate, breathe deeply, and relax. Avoid the temptations of excess caffeine, processed foods, and alcohol. They only make things worse in the long run.
