The infamous “last 10 pounds.” How do you get rid of that bit of extra weight that seems to hang around your waistline due to age, stress, a recent birth, or simply falling into a workout rut? To help give your metabolism a boost and keep you from throwing in the towel, I created the “Last 10 Workout,” a unique group of exercises that will end your mundane routines and get your body fired up to shed that stubborn weight.

To be successful, don’t forget to incorporate these core lifestyle changes as well:
1. Remember that what you eat is 80 percent of all fitness and wellness success.
2. Divide your body weight in pounds in half. Drink that number of ounces of water a day.
3. Aim for 6 to 8 hours of sleep daily.
4. Don’t starve yourself.
5. Make time for yourself. (The workout below is just 10 minutes. Don’t tell me you don’t have time for that!)

How It Works
For each exercise, perform as many repetitions as possible in 60 seconds. Don’t rest between moves. (Repeat: There is no rest between sets.)

1. Burpee Twist: Stand tall with feet hip-width apart, arms at sides. Quickly lower hips into a squat and place hands directly in front of feet. As soon as hands touch the ground, kick both feet back into a pushup position. Pause. Jump feet under hips. Jump up, reaching hands toward the ceiling while rotating torso 180 degrees. Land facing start position.
Coach’s tip: To ensure maximum strength gain, fully extend your body when you are jumping.

2. Burpee Back Up: Stand tall with feet hip-width apart, arms at sides. Quickly lower hips into a squat and place hands directly in front of feet. As soon as hands touch the ground, kick both feet back into a pushup position. Pause. Jump feet under hips. Jump up, propeling yourself backward by driving hips back as far as possible while fully extending body.

Land and repeat, this time jumping forward. Continue alternating jumping backward and forward.
Coach’s Tip: Aim to create equal backward and forward jumps with each burpee. This will help increase caloric expenditure and maximize musculature development.

3. Single-Leg Burpee: Stand tall with feet hip-width apart, arms at sides. Quickly lower hips into a squat and place hands directly in front of feet. As soon as hands touch the ground, kick back right leg into a pushup position while left leg is suspended in the air. Pause. Reverse direction (with left leg still off of the floor) and drive hands and hips toward the ceiling. Upon landing, squat. Jump left foot back into a pushup position with right leg suspended in air. Continue alternating legs.
Coach’s Tip: To ensure proper form, move through this exercise in a controlled and steady manner.

4. Single-Arm Burpee: Stand tall with feet hip-width apart, arms at sides. Quickly lower hips into a squat and place right hand on the ground in front of feet. Kick both feet back into a pushup position. Pause. Jump feet under hips. Jump up, reaching hands toward the ceiling. Land and repeat, this time placing left hand on the ground. Continue alternating between hands.
Coach’s Tip: Place hand in front of and between your feet. This will ensure greater support while keeping your body balanced throughout the move.
