There are so many tips about foods that increase the metabolism. But with the help of a well-planned workout we can also boost the level of the metabolism.
These routines are high-intensity ones that include mainly bodyweight exercises. The best is that the beneficial effects continue after finishing the routine for many hours.
If you combine these types of workouts with proper nutrition, you can lose weight quickly.
The following quick workout is a good example. It is a combination of HIIT and bodyweight core exercises. There are 5 groups of exercises.
The intervals are 25 seconds intensive and 10 seconds rest. With the help of it, you can burn approx. 100-200 calories. It is particularly beneficial to burn belly fat.
Do not forget to warm up before for at least 5 - 10 minutes, especially your lower back.

While this routine is efficient, that does not mean you should do it each day. Your muscles need recovery as well, so I think doing it for 2-3 times a week is enough. If your aim is losing weight focus on your nutrition instead.
If you are at a higher fitness level and you do strength training, you can add it to your workout routine to burn fat, strengthen your core and to develop your stamina. Again 2-3 times a week is enough. That is what I do, and it works.
