Sometimes, when you're feeling lethargic, unmotivated, and less than happy about another body part workout, you need a powerful boot in the balls.

The only solution is to throw a wrench into the machinery of your training plan. The biggest and most effective wrenches come in the form of brutal workouts.



If you need to shake it up, try one of these intense fat-burning workouts. They're not easy; they're a great way to challenge your cardiovascular fitness and mental toughness. Use one of these sessions on your cardio or conditioning day and I guarantee you'll leave the gym feeling accomplished.

If you need some help, grab a buddy or pop in some of your favorite workout music for more motivation.

Let's get it done!
