Burn calories fast

by Alyssa Lee

These exercises by Tracy Anderson are designed to work body parts in the most muscle-targeted, time-efficient way. (All together now: Woo-hoo!)

If 3-pound weights are too heavy, start with 1- or 2-pounders. "Or use no weights at all if you just need to get used to the movement," Anderson says.

Aim to do the workout 4 to 6 times per week, along with 30 minutes of aerobic activity. "Cardio is really important for weight management," says Anderson.

In one hour, you’ll burn up to 800 calories. (Repeat: Woo-hoo!)
