Lift weights, doing multi-muscle moves such as chest presses. (For free routines, go to Fat Burning Dumbbell Workouts.)
Rest no more than 20 seconds between sets while strength-training.
Whenever you exercise
Snack before your workout (see Eating Healthy for suggestions).
Schedule exercise before a meal so you eat within a half hour of finishing your workout.
Track your heart rate during cardio.
Change one move in your workout routine every Monday. For example, swap push-ups for chest presses one week, lunges for squats the next, and so on.
Plan an active outing such as hiking.
