Here Is A Great 15-Minute Bodyweight Workout For Fat Lo

If you’re looking for a super-quick, ultra-effective fat loss workout, then this mini-bodyweight circuit is the perfect solution.
In 15 minutes, you will perform three bodyweight exercises with zero rest between exercises. Once you have made you way through the circuit you can rest for 30-60 seconds and then repeat the circuit two more times for a total of three circuits.
To start out the circuit you’ll begin with underhanded inverted rows, using a narrower grip than what you would use when doing the overhanded bodyweight rows. So for proper form, pull your chest up to the bar, squeezing your shoulder blades together and perform as many repetitions as possible. You’ll also find that your biceps get a lot of work in this exercise.
Immediately after completing all the repetitions for the rows, you’ll move into a series of Bulgarian split squats. For this exercise you want to place your back foot up on a bench, drop your hips down and then come back up. Throughout the exercise, your lead leg will be doing all of the work while you’ll also find that you get a nice stretch through your hip flexor area while in the lowered position. So, do 15-20 repetitions for each side.
This bodyweight workout is more like a mini-arm workout as you’ll be using your biceps a lot in the bodyweight rows, and now in this final exercise, closed-grip pushups. To perform this exercise, get in the regular pushup position and then bring your hands closer together while tucking your elbows into your sides. Do as many repetitions as possible.
Once you’ve made your way through these three exercises, rest for one minute and then repeat the bodyweight circuit two more times for a total of three circuits.
