The Fat-Burning Yoga Workout

Overview

You might not think of yoga as a workout, but all of that will change after you try this plan. This series of poses is designed to fire up all the muscles in your body, which allows you to kick your metabolism into high gear. Give it a try and you'll be hooked-and surprised by what it can do for your body.

How to do this Workout

Perform the following workout 1-2 times per week. Make sure that you never perform these exercises on back-to-back days.

Complete the exercises as straight sets by performing all sets of a given exercise before moving on to the next. Make sure you rest as needed in between before moving on to the next.

Circuit : Do 1 set of each exercise in a group consecutively, without rests in between. Once  these exercises have been completed, repeat the circuit again - doing 1 set of each with no rests in between. Continue until prescribed number of total sets are performed

Strength : Complete all sets of an exercise at the same time with rests in between. Then move to the next exercise.

Superset : Two moves done consecutively (like a circuit) with no rests in between.
