Today we’ve got a unique workout challenge for all you guys and girls looking for something….shall we say, a little spicy?  The Beast is all about thrashing your cardiovascular system while targeting your stabilization muscles with a range of body weight specific movements.  While we avoid any big, heavy, and compound lifts in today’s challenge, we more than make up for it with high repetition, body weight only movements.

The high rep sequence of the strength component of this fat burning workout challenge will no doubt have some cardiovascular elements of its own.  This of course, will contribute towards elevating your heart rate and maximizing your fat burn potential.

Whether you’re looking for something to completely shock your body over a plateau or just want to find out how much progress you’ve really been making – The Beast is a great choice.  This workout is going to help you burn fat, improve muscular endurance, and contribute towards that lean, healthy, and athletic physique.  If you’re concerned about how this challenge workout will play a part of your total routine – don’t be.  This is a “low-impact” workout, meaning you should be easily able to get back to your standard routine the following day – provided you aren’t focusing heavily on abs or doing any heavy lower body lifts, i.e. squats/deadlifts.

So without further adieu…I give you, The Beast..

If it wasn’t already clear, the above workout is for time.  These “for time” workouts have a distinct advantage over standard workouts, in that you have a clear-cut goal to attack, as well as motivation for completing the goal.  Think about it for a second.   How easy is it to lose the intensity/drive when you’re simply looking at a long list of exercises to complete?  Sometimes you need to amp things up and a little healthy competition against yourself is the answer.  Be sure to write down your times each time you attempt this challenge workout, so you’ve got something to shoot for next time out.
