Create An Instant Workout With the Name Game

Back when I was struggling to lose weight, I used to spend hours in the gym doing traditional cardio.  Classes, treadmill, swimming, the elliptical, I tried them all.  I couldn’t understand why I was so hungry all the time.  The worst part was the fact that I looked old and tired.  Why?  I was burning muscle.

I stopped doing conventional steady state cardio, and I started doing intervals instead.  I admit that the most powerful aspect of training that I use with my clients is weight lifting, but you may want to train on the days when you don’t lift.  That’s what the “Name Game” is for.  I found one of these lists on Facebook.  I took out the crunches, added some of my favorite interval moves, and here they are.  Just use the letters of your name to spell out a training session.  The optimal duration is just 11 minutes, and you will be triggering fat loss, not burning muscle.

Use the letters of your name to create your own interval training session.
