This is the Core Torcher Workout from the Bikini Season Workouts x2 – Burn Fat Faster! article. This workout is the second of two fat-burning interval workouts that you can do with little to no equipment. (Workout 1 is the Full Body Blast). These workouts are an advanced level; try 1 round of each and see how you feel. Doing even 1 round is a great start and take time for rest. It’s all about progress, not pain! Also, remember to have some supportive shoes for your spring training! It’s possible you may need a new pair after a winter indoors at the gym or on muddy paths!
Workouts 1 and 2 can be done on consecutive days with a rest day in between (or a light activity like Yoga, Pilates, or a walk). Remember, rest is important with intense interval training and is essential for the recovery of the body and your health.
