5-Minute Stubborn Fat FIX

 Today you’re in for a treat. It’s a short, burst workout created by me and my ‘evil twin brother’ John “Roman” Romaniello. The workout is below, but first, a couple of funny photos. We do look like twins, don’t we? Just like DeVito and Arnold, haha.

Twins!                                                        And here we are at a trainer seminar last month.

If you don’t know Roman, he’s a New York Times bestselling author, a famous NYC trainer (who now lives in LA where he trains record producers, rock bands, and movie stars), and most important for you and I, he’s a stubborn fat loss expert.

For the last 7 years, ever since I’ve known him, Roman has specialized in helping you lose the last 5 to 25 pounds of fat. This is PERFECT TIMING for all of us, because we are just a week away from Memorial Day (here in America, as I’m in New York City today) and just a few weeks from the official start of summer. And besides, there’s never a good time to be holding on to stubborn fat.

Roman knows the fat burning workout and diet secrets to help you overcome the most stubborn love handles, cellulite on your thighs, or flabby fat on the back of your arms. So if you have a big day coming up this summer (like a son or daughter’s wedding, a graduation, or even your own Big Day), don’t worry. We have you covered … and we’ll start with today’s…

5-Minute Stubborn Fat Fix

1A) *Switch Lunges (weak side) – **AMRAP in 45 seconds – Rest 15 seconds
1B) Switch Lunges (strong side) – AMRAP in 45 seconds – Rest 15 seconds
1C) ***Perfect Pushups – 45 seconds – Rest 15 seconds
1D) Burpees or Total Body Extensions – 45 seconds – Rest 15 seconds
1E) Kettlebell Swings or Goblet Squats – 45 seconds – Rest 15 seconds

That’s a 5-Minute Stubborn Fat Fix to add to the end of your regular TT workout, OR you can do this circuit up to 4 times. Add an extra minute of rest at the end of the 2nd and 3rd circuits.

*Switch Lunges => Lunge forward with your “weak” leg. Return to start position. Then step backward with your strong leg. Return to the start position.

**AMRAP => As Many Reps As Possible

***Perfect Pushups => Lower in one second, pause for one second at bottom, push up in one second, and pause at top for one second.

This will turn your fat loss “up to an 11”.

If you like that, let me know, and I’ll see if I can get more stubborn fat loss tips from my good ol’ evil twin brother, Roman.

Have an amazing week,

PS – Here’s what to focus on this week…

Measure your PROGRESS, rather than seeking perfection. Understand you will never reach perfection…instead you must celebrate your journey as you improve from point A to point B. Make each day better than your last.

PPS – Because you must never forget…
“You are responsible for exactly who, what, and where you are in life. That will be just as true this time next year.” – Kekich Credo #58…..Everything ends at some point. Good times and bad. So persevere through the hard times knowing they will, and be present and enjoy the good times a little more than you might be doing right now. Look back at the week…
