Fun Workout #5: Rowing Machine

The rowing machine is one of the few cardio machines that I actually like. Compared to the elliptical or treadmill, the rowing machine is also much more effective for burning fat, as it utilizes most of the major muscle groups with better resistance. Try it out if you haven't already done so. When using the rowing machine it's important to remember to keep your back STRAIGHT!

Fun Workout #6: Outdoor Wind Sprinting

When the weather is nice try doing some wind sprints on a football field. I recommend doing 50-100 yard wind sprints a few times a week to burn off some serious fat and shock the body. Wind sprints are used by professionally trained sprinters in Olympics, as well as football and basketball players.

Fun Workout #7: Dumbbell Circuits

Dumbbell circuits is when you do say 4 or 5 multi-joint compound exercises without any rest. Dumbbell circuits are awesome for raising your metabolism. An example of a dumbbell circuit is performing dumbbell step-ups, dumbbell bent-over rows, dumbbell squats and dumbbell lunges, non-stop.
