This workout will not only burn lots of calories from doing the 20 seconds jogging on the spot but also with the squat and kick means you then tone your bottom, thighs, abs and arms. And the best bit is it is just 4 minutes so you know that those short bursts of 20 seconds jogging on the spot means you can push it to the maximum (which as I mention earlier in this blog it is all about intensity) So give this a go and I promise you after 4 minutes you will have felt that burn.

So let’s be honest here Dawn is not alone as we are all short of time! and the chance of finding a whole hour to workout is next to impossible, as our to do list in our diary is booked up to the max!
But the good news for Dawn and everyone else with hectic lifestyles is that a whole hour of your time is not needed and actually all you need is 4 minutes, and this can even be squeezed in at home with no equipment. So this way at home you can still get in a full body workout in just 4 minutes, which is going to look after your health, tone you up, burn fat and increase your, fitness in less time than it takes to boil the kettle.
Research over the last few years have discovered that the most important part of exercise and fitness is the intensity more than the duration, as if you get the intensity right then you can don’t need to be spending 40 minutes, as these swapping these for HIIT style workouts will actually get better results, plus they are more doable.
So yes in this case LESS really is more when it comes to fitness.
As a Personal trainer for over 25 years (ouch) I have always used shorter intense workout with all my clients and I was ahead of the game and had been doing HIIT way before it became the buzz word in the fitness industry, these dynamic workouts get amazing results and you get a much higher fat burn and the sculpting moves help to tone and tighten in all the right places.
So if you have 4 minutes spare and want a quick fat burning and total body toning workout then try this, and all you need is a stop watch and obviously 4 minutes.
Always spend about a minute or so marching on the spot to ensure you are fully warmed up you can do this by marching on the spot or just going up and down the stairs a few times.
