With BURST training, who can use “no time” as an excuse for not getting healthy and in the best shape of your life? Let’s put it this way: what works better for your busy schedule—three minutes a day of exercise or twenty-four hours a day of being dead?

Calculate maximum heart rate

  • 220 – your age = maximum
  • During burst, pulse should be 75-85% of maximum

Here is an example of a BURST:

(we suggest staring at 20sec, but can go up to 60sec)

  1. Twenty seconds of full-on exercise (as hard as you can)
  2. Twenty seconds of rest
  3. Repeat this cycle three times—twenty seconds on, off, on, off, on, off.
  4. Follow this with two minutes off, as recovery time is important to achieve the full BURST effect.
  5. Now repeat this entire cycle three times with a different exercise, which means you are performing three minutes of total exercise. That’s approximately nine minutes total elapsed time.
  6. Repeat these BURST workouts 4-7 days per week

BURST exercise examples:

  • Stepping up and down on a step (+/- weights)
  • Riding a bicycle or stationary bike
  • Running in place (normal, high knees, kick butt), Running in place in a pool
  • Swimming laps
  • Rollerblading
  • Rower or elliptical machine
  • Squats (narrow legs, wide), jump squats, lunges
  • Push ups
  • Jump in place, jump rope, jumping jacks
  • Burpees
