The Do Anywhere Workout
Posted on 12 March 2014

But with this super simple "Do-Anywhere" workout they picked up from Equinox, missed workouts are a thing of the past. This "stack" style workout takes only 16 minutes giving you a full body workout, that will get your heart racing and energize you for the rest of the day.

Why it's effective?
It uses the principles of Density Training which increases the amount of work your doing, without increasing the recovery. This means shorter workouts that use more muscles, working both local and global muscle groups to increase fat burn and muscle tone. Yet, as they are short, dynamic workouts the prolonged stress on your muscles is reduced, so recovery time is shorter.
Interval style workouts also rev your metabolism quickly, to increase fat burn over a longer period of time than steady state cardio.
