From mundane workout to absolutely insane
Sweat Fests  
Ready       Set        Go !   
Cross Fit, Insanity, Interval Training re-invented 
has hit the fitness world 
" WAM BAM"!  

(Buff Betty Bootcamp Workout at the end)    

From sweaty, breathless, fat blasting, strength building WOD(workouts of the day).  There is a new/re-invented exercise phenomenon engulfing the world of fitness and most definitely the new workout kid on the block.  

Now you either are nodding your head in agreement or thinking what the heck is Paula C talking about.  WOD is a "tidy sweat fest business" and I encourage you to have a go - if you dare!

From jump chins, burpees, froggers, pushup's and more the body will enter into a Sweaty Betty euphoria of absolute fat blasting,  extreme and insane workout brilliance. Yes, you may want to vomit at the end BUT this is good! "I think"

I AM IN LOVE!! with my new sweat fest journey..
P.S keep reading cause there is a sweat journey at the end!

Having exercised in fitness facilities for the past 24 years,  I have taught myself everything I know today by Certifying as a Personal Exercise/Lifestyle Coach & Group Fitness Instructor, read the books on the many varieties of workouts and exercises available plus read cover to cover the Muscle & Fitness and Oxygen Fitness magazines.

BUT with all of this knowledge under my lycra gym pant belt I realized, hey I have hit a major exercise BOREDOM bump in my regular workout routines!! (sound familiar) and so began my journey of physical fitness enlightenment.

Google;  Insanity, Tabatha, Interval and Cross Fit workouts and you will find a plethora of fresh, new, fun, exhilarating, breathlessly tiresome, muscle burning, power building, fat blasting exercises; "BOOM"

With a little help from my friend "You Tube" & a dash of my own knowledge and expertise,  I have designed my own 20, 30 minute and longer sweat fest workouts.  

Do I sense an interest! If your keen to burn 250 - 600+ calories then give this Buff Betty sweat fest workout a go! You can complete either a 20, 30 or 50 minute routine.

** This is an intense workout for 
Intermediate to Advanced Exerciser's ONLY!
GENTS I invite you to give this a go! 

Sweat Fest Gear Requirement;
Skipping Rope(you may want it),Timer (I use Everlast),dumbbells (3lbs - 15lbs)

1.  Set your timer to 50 Second GO with 10 Second REST 
2.  Complete each Group of exercises once,  1 minute break is    
    included at set 3 so that you will give 150% max push    
    during each set. If you do not wish to take a break, continue 
    with the OR exercise stated in set OR cardio (I love to skip)
3.  Each set is 5 minutes
4.  Start with a 5 minute steady paced cardio warm up (skip, 
    bicycle,treadmill, elliptical trainer etc)always include a 
    warm up prior to workout as well as ensuring your upper body, 
    hips and knees are warm. 

This is a 25-30 minute workout. You may shorten by removing one or two sets of exercises or lengthen by repeating each set twice before moving onto the next set to make for a "tidy" 50 minute routine. In the 50 minute workout complete a 10 minute cardio warm up first.  

* I have added a dumbbell weight that I would use, 
choose a weight that will 
challenge you!
*Google; any exercises you do not know how to perform.
