Hang around enough people who are trying to lose weight, and you'll inevitably hear the same excuses: Not enough equipment, they'll say. Or even: Running just isn't my style.

But here's the thing: Burning fat shouldn't require any equipment. And it defintely doesn't allow for excuses.

All you need to eliminate your belly is a few square feet—whether it's at the gym or in your living room—to complete this flab-blasting bodyweight circuit.

Combine back-to-back rounds of high knees, pushups, jumping jacks, pushups (yes, again), and mountain climbers—all at reps of 20 seconds each, with little to no rest in between—for a high-intensity, fat-busting workout routine.


You'll do this workout as a circuit, meaning you'll complete each exercise consecutively without rest. Once you've finished all exercises, rest for 30 to 60 seconds. Repeat the entire circuit for 4 to 6 rounds.

Depending upon your ability, you may shorten or lengthen the rest period. You may also complete more or fewer rounds.
