Well if I can’t get the suit of kick ass armor might as well get the next best thing, the body. Robert Downey Jr.  looks shredded in the sequel to Iron Man. How did he do it? Men’s Fitness brought in his secret weapon Brad Bose, Ph.d.  Brad developed a fat burning, full body and core ripping routine. I had to substitute some of the exercises due to the type of equipment I have, but the workout still does the job.

Bose says to stretch before and after training. He also says if you limit your calories between 1,600 and 2000 you will see results fast. Gotta love the science of exercise.

Here are some tips from the article.
Beginners should exercise to failure, taking the remainder of the minutes to rest.
In other words since the workout is based on time. If you can only go for 25 seconds out of a minute, use the other 35 seconds to rest.

    This looks like a great workout that would be perfect for Crossfit. It looks like it’s all about cardio and calorie burning.
