The Alternating Set Fat-Melter

How to do it

Alternate between the two workouts three days a week. So, in the first week, do workout A on Monday, B on Wednesday and A on Friday. The next week, do B on Monday, A on Wednesday and B on Friday.

Warm up for 5 minutes on a treadmill, elliptical trainer, bike or jump rope, and lightly stretch for 2 minutes.

Perform each pair of exercises as alternating sets, resting for a minute or so between each set until you’ve done three sets of eight to 12 reps of each. For example, on workout A, do a set of leg press, then go straight to seated row, rest a minute or so, then do them both again. Do this three times, then move to bench press and lat pulldowns.

Workout A

a. Leg press
a. Seated row
b. Bench press (dumbbell or bar)
b. Lat pulldown
c. Push press
c. Incline sit-ups with medicine ball

Cardio: 15 minutes on treadmill, recumbent bike or elliptical machine (rotate each day)

Workout B

a. Curls (dumbbell or bar)
a. Shoulder press
b. Incline bench press (dumbbell or bar)
b. Dumbbell squats or lunges
c. Dips on bench
c. Stability ball crunches

Cardio: 15 minutes on treadmill, recumbent bike or elliptical machine (rotate each day)

On off days, do as much cardio as you would like, but only work out with weights three days per week.

New Year’s Resolution Fat Burning Circuit (December 2004)

To give your muscles some recovery time, don’t do the weight lifting part of this workout more than three days a week. Do as much cardio as you would like.

*Warmup 3 to 5 minutes on a bike then lightly stretch
*Perform these exercises as a circuit. This means to do 1 set of each exercise with no rest between exercises, then go through the exercises again. Go thru the exercises 3 times if you can. Switch up the way you perform each workout. For example, if you do the machine bench press on Monday, do it with dumbells on Wednesday.
Bench Press (with bar, dumbells, or machine) 10-12 reps

Dumbell Curls (seated, inclined, or with bar) 10-12 reps

Leg Press (squats or lunges) 10-12 reps

Tricep Pushdown 10-12 reps

Lat Pulldown (or seated rows) 10-12 reps

Dumbell Shoulder Press 10-12 reps

Crunches 20-30 reps
*Cardio 15-30 minutes. Switch it up as much as you can by changing speeds and exercising on different equipment rather than doing the same thing everyday.
*Stretch again for a couple of minutes when finished.

The Pre-Spring Split (Feb 2005)

Try to do both Day 1 and Day 2 twice a week. Do 2 to 3 sets of 12-15 reps of each exercise. Do as much cardio as you would like. Try to change speed incline frequently. Run fast for a minute or two, and slow down for a minute or two. You can do this on any of the cardio machines. Try to at least do 20 minutes, three times a week.
