Have you ever realized how much of a challenge a body weight only workout can be? If you’re like me, you may have shunned doing body weight only training. You may have thought “real progress” couldn’t be made without weights. Over time, I grew to see body weight training not only had its merits – it was downright effective when paired with an awesomely effective cardio/strength workout plan.
As my mindset changed, so did my training. What you see below is a product of this new way of thinking and training. I put together six body weight only exercises, each with a different focus and intensity. The way these exercises were paired up allows for a complete, total body workout, while utilizing the high-intensity nature of circuit training. This format allows for limited rest breaks, which ensures your heart stays pumping in that perfect calorie and fat burning zone.
Feel free to throw this fat blasting workout challenge into your total fitness plan once or even twice a week. Substitute it for cardio days, but be prepared for one hell of a challenge.
The Body Burn Workout Challenge

- 10 Tuck Jumps
- 10 Super Climbers
- 10 Lateral Hops
