It sounds trite, but it's true: The only bad workout is the one you don't do. Getting fit doesn't have to be complicated, but burning off that flab and building your musculature starts with actually doing something it.
Go outside and take a walk. Do some pushups, do some lunges—just get moving. You don't need hours and hours. About 10-15 minutes of moving, stretching, and doing bodyweight exercises will add up very quickly in a week. Start slow and work out three times a week. As you progress, work out four or five times a week if you want.
That's the basics, of course. But whether you're just starting your routine or years into a determined fitness regimen, we're betting you're looking for some next-level strategies to improve your fat burn and building more muscle. Scroll through this list for seven top-notch tactics that will guide you in the right direction.
