Lose weight and get fit with this full body workout by Joel Freeman – T3

A great way to lose weight and get fit for 2021 is to workout at home. This boxing-inspired full body workout takes a little longer than 15 minutes and burns plenty of calories: perfect! As well as helping weight loss, frequent exercising can boost metabolism and improve mood too. This boxing-inspired total body home workout was put together by Joel Freeman, creator of the '10 Rounds' programme at Beachbody On Demand.

Basics of boxing with FightCamp co-founder Tommy Duquette

In a blog post about 10 Rounds, Joel explains the benefits of boxing workouts, "how every single punch actually begins at your feet, burns up through your hips, intensifies as you torque your core, and explodes all the way through your fists. With each punch, youre engaging your entire body, and gaining a deep muscle burn that will help scorch fat and calories and get your body in serious boxing shape. Its intense, but its also a lot of fun."

The total run time of this workout is only 16 minutes and 45 seconds perfect for a quick pick me up after work or and to boost metabolism at the beginning of the day. Why not round it up to 20 minutes and include a bit of warm up before the workout: a light jump rope session or some stationary jogging would the trick just fine.

After the workout, make sure you stretch those muscles with a foam roller or a massage gun. The latter can effectively batter workout pain away, ease muscle soreness and mitigate the effects of delayed onset muscle soreness, or DOMS for short, which will inevitably happen after doing such an intense exercise as this one.

Place a loop safely around your wrists. Lay flat on your back with your legs extended long and your arms extended overhead. With resistance in the loop, bring your legs and arms up, simultaneously, so your legs are directly over your hips, feet flexed, and arms extended over your chest. Bring your shoulder blades off the ground as you reach your hands toward your toes. Slowly bring your shoulders back to the ground and release your arms and legs back to the starting position.

Perform this exercise for 45 seconds for three sets. Rest for 30 seconds in-between sets.
