Today is Halloween, so I have a special workout for you – “The Countdown Monster”!

You see, if you dislike cardio, but you KNOW you need to do it, because you want to lose fat and be in shape …

… BUT, you don’t do it as much as you know you should, because you don’t really like it, and it takes too much time …

“Finisher” workouts like the one I’m going to share with you today are a great solution.

These special workouts can be used:

— At the end of your favorite workout, to rev up your metabolism and burn extra fat
— As “off day” conditioning workouts to shed more fat or improve your overall conditioning
— For travel workouts as well when you don’t have much time.
— For short burst workouts during the day as well, as long as it doesn’t interfere with your recovery


Ladder Finisher #3 – The Countdown Monster

Do the following circuit, resting only when needed. In the first circuit, you’ll perform 5 reps of each exercise. In the next circuit, you’ll perform 4 reps of each exercise. Continue in this fashion until you complete 1 rep of each exercise:

Prisoner Lunge Jumps (5/side … 1/side)
KB or DB Renegade Row (5/side … 1/side)
TD Bulgarian Squat (5/side … 1/side)
Regular OR Feet Elevated Pushups (5/side … 1/side)

(You’ll learn how to do all the moves in this workout with the program videos, which you can get HERE)


Again, workouts like the one I’m sharing with you today are the perfect solution for people who dislike cardio, but want to burn a ton of fat, rev up their metabolism and burn calories for the rest of the day.
