All the Rage

IMG_3741Tired of the same old results (or lack thereof)? Allow us to walk you through a workout that will make all the competition angry, using high-end fitness equipment from Rage Fitness.
So, you’re frustrated that you put in hours at the gym — you just spent 60 minutes doing cardio — but you still can’t rid of that last bit of belly fat. It’s time to turn things around (and up). I recommend a Celsius energy drink (celsius.com), which is pretty much healthy energy at its best. It’s a great-tasting and clinically proven drink that will help you burn an additional 100 calories during your workout, and give you energy you need to do this fat-burning routine.

Now get moving:

INTERVALS, INTERVALS, INTERVALS

I recommend working as fast you can for short periods of time. In other words, stop being a marathon runner (unless that’s a specific goal) and start being a ripped, lean-machine sprinter. Why? You can burn more direct belly and overall body fat in 4 minutes of high-intensity interval cardio than 40 minutes of prolonged cardio.

Now when I say “cardio,” you’re thinking: Oh boy, I’ve got to run. You think like 95% of all people. But cardio doesn’t always mean treadmills, bikes, elliptical machines, arc trainers, and so on. “Cardio” is short for “cardiovascular system,” meaning simply that you want to work your cardiovascular system.

Now I’m a huge fan of Rage Fitness (ragefitness.com), and have worked with them because they are all about efficiency, quality, and excellent results… Kinda like me. So here’s what you could call the “Danny Musico RAGE-On System,” designed to shred you up and bring out that can’t-lose spirit.

THE DANNY MUSICO RAGE-ON SYSTEM

STEP ONE: Jump with Rage Power Ropes for 30 seconds, on full blast. Rest for 30 seconds, then repeat.
STEP TWO: Do some Rage Plyo Box jumps or lateral step-ups at 30-second interval — pace yourself — then rest for 30 seconds and repeat.
STEP THREE: Do some Rage Medicine Ball twist intervals, powering out as many twists as you can — squeezing those obliques, keeping a high spine and great form — for 30 seconds. Rest for 30 seconds and repeat.
STEP FOUR: Go to the Rage Speed Jump Rope (a different experience from the Power Ropes, you’ll see) and 30 seconds of jumping, 30 seconds rest, then repeat.
STEP FIVE: Now one of my favorites… Take out your stress on a heavy bag for 30 seconds straight, punching like a piston, take 30 seconds off, then drop down to the body of the bag for 30 seconds of power shots to the mid-section, twisting that core as fast as you can to deliver a machine gun-like punching performance. Repeat (because you’ll want to.)
STEP SIX: Plank, plank, plank. Using the clock to challenge yourself, planks are one of the best core exercises you can do to build a flat,strong midsection and strengthen your back at the same time. Continue to challenge yourself for time!
STEP SEVEN: Get ready for some mountain-climbers with a twist. Drop down on all fours (without anyone buying you a drink first, just kidding) and start pumping those legs up the hill, driving each knee individually to the outside of the opposite elbow, creating a twisting motion while climbing. These are gut-blasters.
STEP EIGHT: Now, take yourself over the SPARC machine by Cybex and do 4 minutes of intervals… hard as you can for 30 seconds, 30 seconds rest.
If you put all of this —or even just some of this — into a 30-minute to 60-minute interval routine, you will not only get rid of that stubborn belly fat, you will bring your conditioning to a whole new level. Rage on! And don’t forget to start the workout like I have my celebrities do, with that Celsius energy drink. That’s how you get it done.
