Burn fat with a plyometric weight loss routine

How do you amp up your current cardio/strength training routine to make sure you burn extra calories and shed extra fat? By jumping. Though jumping sounds easy, after you try this routine and repeat it a few times we'd be surprised if you weren't completely winded and sweaty. Do these exercises after your usual routine to really kick things up:

Jump Squats

Box (Square Jumps)

Flying Romans

Recommendation: Do this after your regular exercise session.

Entry Level - Try 3 sets of 1 exercise. Shoot for 6 repetitions per set. Recover for 1 minute between sets.

Intermediate - Try 2 sets of 2 exercises. Shoot for 10 repetitions per set. Recover for 1 minute between sets.

Advanced - Try 3 sets of 2 exercises. Shoot for 15 repetitions per set. Rest 1 minute between sets.
