This put me off my schedule big time.  The workout had to be short – because I still had four articles to write for all my businesses (fitness, Early To Rise, TT Trainers, personal coaching, etc.)

The Bodyweight Fat Blaster

1) Total Body Extensions (or Burpees) – 30 seconds
2) Pushups (or Mountain Climbers) – 30 seconds
– Rest 10-20 seconds and repeat as many times as possible in 10 minutes.

The Beach Body Muscle Builder <= did this one Friday morning

1A) DB Chest Press – 8-12 reps
1B) DB Row or Chest Supported Row – 8-12 reps
– No rest between exercises.
– Rest 1 minute between supersets.

The Female Fat Burning Carve-Your-Curves Solution

1A) Reverse Lunges – 30 seconds per side
1B) Total Body Extensions (or Burpees) – 20 seconds on, 10 seconds off x 2
– Rest 30 seconds and
