5 Low-Impact Fat Blasters

No more excuses not to blast fat!

This quick fat-blasting workout incorporates a series of six low-impact exercises. Low-impact moves are easy on the joints. They’re ideal for people recovering from injuries and anyone who wants to build joint and muscle strength before engaging in high-intensity jumping plyometric moves.

Although these moves are low-impact, they’re extremely effective at raising your heart rate and burning calories. To make the most of this fat-blasting workout, challenge yourself to give everything you have during each move. You’ll get a short ten-second break in between moves.

The best thing about this low-impact fat-blasting workout is that it keeps your metabolism elevated long after you’re done. You’ll reap the fat-burning benefits for up to 24 hours!
