Exercises For Melting Fat From Jillian Michaels
Jillian Michaels is a fitness guru whose signature stands countless fitness programs that provide impressive results. 41-year-old star is credited for the positive changes in the appearance of thousands of people.
For the new edition of “Shape”, Michaels share exercises that shape your body. Effective movements that do not require special equipment follow the principles of the program Bodyshred, developed by the Michaels.
Jillian Michaels is the living, breathing badass billboard for her body of work. And here, the poster girl is giving up her secrets: “This is the routine I do myself.” Her quick but oh-so-effective workout follows the tenets of Michaels’ evolved Bodyshred program: 30-minute bodyweight and dumbbell workouts designed to shed fat, sculpt muscle, and boost your confidence. “The results I’ve seen with Bodyshred have been far superior to any program that I’ve ever created,” she says.
Here’s where you get started—with her circuit of seven toners. “I like to train the body from as many different angles as possible and to use every modality available to do it,” she explains. “That’s why for some moves in this workout, you need explosive power; for others, control and balance are the focus.” On top of that, each exercise targets multiple big-muscle groups, so you get maximum calorie-burning benefits.
For this routine, you want to work at 85 percent of your max heart rate to ensure that you burn the maximum number of calories, Michaels says. To ballpark that 85 percent range, subtract your age from 220. That’s your max heart rate (the maximum beats per minute your heart should pump during exercise). Then multiply that number by 0.85. Once you know your target bpm, wear a heart-rate monitor and try to stay on mark during each move.
How it works: Do as many reps of each exercise as you can for 30 seconds. Repeat the circuit until you’ve done four sets total. Do this routine four days a week on alternate days.
You will need: No equipment
