A high-intensity circuit that focuses on using your bodyweight to create resistance is what you need to give you a full body fat burning workout that sculpts and tones your body. We asked Lagos-based personal trainer The Fit Lawyer (@thefitlawyerr), who specialises in body sculpting using little or no equipment to design a full body workout. According to her, these exercises are great for anyone, who wants to get fit, tone and sculpt their body without having to commit to a gym membership. The circuit focuses on cardiovascular fitness, endurance and strength.
They turn your body into a fat burning machine; research has shown that exercises like burpees burn up to 50% more fat than moderate exercising.
So if you are serious about losing weight, make burpees your favourite exercise

If a strong upper body is your aim, then you need to be pushing away. They help you develop a very strong, defined and toned upper body.
Jump lunges like squat jumps are a plyometric exercise. They teach your body to be agile and explosive. This type of training combines high intensity cardiovascular exercise with strength training help, which leads to burning calories faster. If you are keen to grow your legs then jump lunges should be a part of your routine.
Should taps are great for midline stability, core and shoulder strength. Core strength is the foundation of successful exercise
