A great benefit for those who add an exercise program including resistance training two or more times a week is that the set—point reductions in metabolic rate are somewhat reversed by the effects of exercise and excess post-exercise oxygen consumption (EPOC), reducing the metabolic rate loss to about 200 kcal per day.

This type of resistance training tends to burn more calories, deplete glycogen (carbohydrate stored in the muscle; this is beneficial as it increases fat burning), generates a nice hormonal response in terms of fat mobilization and may create a larger caloric burn after the exercise is done.

  • I’ve been preaching this for years. no one listened. You will recover so much faster. Your cardio will improve. And the best part your mood will be boosted. It completely kills my anxiety and depression. Highly recommend for those with mood swings.

  • woah, do you also have beginner workouts to beginners who think they are fit because they used to go run three times a week but stopped a couple of weeks and suddenly can’t even get past the half already soaked in sweat?

  • Just a precision. Catabolism isn’t just the breakdown of muscle amino acids as people are often led to believe. Catabolism is the metabolic process where large molecules are broken down into small ones for energy production ( ATP ). Fat burning is catabolism. Glucose burning is catabolism. Digestion is catabolism. Nothing against you it’s just a general statement

  • Hi mam IAM in medical problem.. doctor ask to reduce 20kg..I brought Herbalife so please coach me… give me diet plan 21days for weight loss please

  • I just turn off my aircondition and wrap up in a blanket qhen i go to ned so i sweat all night then every morning i take a long joy shower to get clean…

  • Me: been doing 20-30mins HIIT 3 times a week. Have done almost 20 work out videos by Popsugar. It’s prob the hardest 30 mins work out ever

    Pros: fast pace, full body work out, push the max, really feeling you’re working out

    Cons: short break(almost none or 30 sec x 2-3 times entire time), you might die (half joke, half serious ��)

    It’s just my personal thought and for some people, it’s not super hard.

    P.s I can’t believe the instructor doesn’t have any heavy breath…that’s crazy!!

  • Thank you for talking about metabolic flexibility. I’ve been slowly gaining weight and fat, can’t sleep for the life of me, always cold, etc etc. so I have been watching many videos and wondering if I indeed have been eating too few calories for way too long or just thinking it could be the reason for no weight loss. I more recently started working out more and cut the calories even lower(like many people I though that is what I have to do), but instead I gained weight. And I’m eating quite healthy. I weigh 170 now and I think I was aiming for like 1000-1500 calories max a day for a long long time.

  • Okay this Wass amazing tiring yes but omg amazing and thank god Anna was there like I joined in with the others majority of the time but my god thankyou Anna! Thaankyouu popsugar!

  • This is a true HIIT workout. No real breaks. Go all out for the whole thing. Loved it! Adding this to my fave workouts list. A guaranteed sweat!

  • I’ve been doing popsugar videos for several years now. How did I NOT see this one?!!! Absolute awesome video! I am drenched in sweat, exactly the wake me up workout I needed to gain some energy for the day! Thank you so much Breann! Love from France ��

  • Just did this, would have liked a softer start, jolted my knee straight away, struggled with the speed all the way through as a result.

  • Loved it! Really good cardio:)
    I just thought it was a bit too fast, at least for me. I felt I couldnt do very well the lounges because they do it in such rush and I didnt want to be left behind:P just wish it was a lil tiny slower to do the lounges properly, instead of doing them so fast and not efficient

  • I lose steam by going all out at offense, especially fast breaks (since somehow i became the best scorer in spite of my height) and I can’t get to defense fast enough (despite being a decent defender especially in passing lanes)

    BTW: I played both American and Korean basketball (I’m currently playing in Korea) and 90% of our offense is fastbreaks…

  • I clicked this workout thinking 30 minutes it will be quick……..boy was i wrong…my body is questioning if i really love it or not. will do it a couple more times its really fun and the burn is amazing

  • This instructor is way too quick. Echoing some of the comments regarding the risk of injury and ability of performing moves in proper form.

  • I really enjoyed the workout, but it’s titled as a prenatal. I’m not sure what stage of prenatal it’s intended for, but so much jumping and some of the abs were challenging at 27 wks.

  • I am completely drenched!!! This was a killer workout and so much fun. For those that think it’s too fast slow down the video so it goes slower. Let’s keep burning this fat!!

  • This was the hardest Popsugar workout I’ve done yet! Now that I know the moves and the routine, I’m going to try to crush it better next time!

  • Great workout! Is there any way to get the video without voice or even just the music track? After the first time the talking is a little annoying when I want to focus on my moves and the music. I would even pay for it.

  • Basketball is life.

    There are never ending things to switch up your workouts and make them more creative and interesting.

    Wish I landed on this video before.

    Definitely gonna do this tomorrow!

  • Hello Coach! I intend to do this drill at the end of my practice. How mnuch do you recommend me doing please for optimal results?

  • I like her energy, it’s the kind of energy and attitude when you do a workout like this! Drop your excuses and let’s do some work!!!

  • How many sets DO you guys complete? I’m gonna add this to the can’t be guarded workouts I’ve been doing. Kinda Eager to see what is the ideal # of sets (opinion) is for guys that do this drill on regular basis in addition to their drill, etc.!

  • If this is the case then why not hit up the sauna Before the gym / your workout Rather than after?
    That’s what I’ll be doing from now on, guessing it will Greatly increase vascularity as well.
    I have been considering this for the past couple weeks, searching the subject is how I found this video, for some reason I cannot find anyting on use of the sauna before workouts and the effects.
    : )Tyler

  • Great content. Been following you since your Men’s Health days. Do you think you can put a workout together for a grappler? I wrestled in College and currently train BJJ. Looking for a great way to train. Looking for most bang for my buck workouts.

  • Another insane and intense workout from Popsugar… but I love to go insane wid my workouts… and this is only possible coz of Popsugar!! I am a sweaty mess!

  • Probably the illest cardio i ever seen for getting back in shape of any sorts especially if u have seeds of hooping as a foundation. I’m trying to get back to game playing shape dope alternative to just a inclined treadmill or long walk ��(2x)

  • The first time I did this work out, I had to keep taking so many breaks. After losing 30 lbs…I can do this work out without any breaks the whole way through!

  • WE should do this in basketball. WE have to do drills, like make 100 jumpshots in 5 minutes while running up and down the court. And if we dont make it we have to run up and down the court 3 times down and back in 30 seconds and if you can’t make it you run a suicide in 28 seconds. It’s ahrd for me because I’m overweight. I never been in a gym before this year so it sucks.

  • yes! diet breaks are so important. Our bodies are sustainability machine and if reduce calories overtime our body will start burning less calories. I did that intuitively for year and just now I am learning all the science behind it!

  • I’m going to try this. I just bought a basketball after not playing for years!! I moved to France so these french people aren’t gonna be ready for me out in the park. This is me on Instagram @tinaewhittaker thank you for this video. Subscribed!! ( a year ago but just getting started)

  • Another good video. I’m eating Carnivore at the moment and all my energy needs above what I eat comes easily from my Fat. Haven’t touched sugar, soda or carbs in 4 weeks. Loving this lifestyle.

  • This is awesome workout! Very challenging! Hopefully, next time I have energy to complete the sets. Will definitely do this again. Thank you!!!!

  • So I sauna at the gym after a workout. I also shower after the sauna. By showering do I negate the positive effects of the sauna?

  • Did this workout twice till now, its very intense and not for beginners. For the first half of video its really hard to follow the trainer, she keeps switching so soon and not enough buffer for you to understand and switch.

  • I’m not sure who said this but I want you guys to think about this, some guy once said “there’s 2 things that are going to happen if you and me get on a treadmill, 1 you’re going to get off or 2. I’m going to DIE on that treadmill”.

  • Warm up was a little fast… also she talks so much about how you’re doing the exercises to the beat of the music, but I couldn’t hear the music really…

  • This may be all but it lacks defensive drills. Maybe we could add one right after attacking the basket then proceed to jogging then free throw

  • is it bad if i do a sauna, then immediately take a cold shower? Does the instant transition from hot to cold have any risks on my body?

  • Anybody know what is Fenoboci Diet Plan about? I hear many people lost a ton of weight with Fenoboci Diet Plan (search on google).

  • loved this workout, it is fast but i think that was the point of it. i feel great after this defo will do this one again as well as the many others that i have found on pop sugar.this one is the best so far. you have kept me going while on lock down with the variety of workout. thank you:)

  • If I am working out in the morning in a fasted state should I eat something and drink a protein shake before I go in? How should I time the food after training with the sauna to get maximum efficiency? Do I need to eat protein before the sauna to get that HSP muscle cell repair stabilization effect? Is it a bad idea to just go inside the sauna while in a fasted state?

  • Thomas by body does’t sweat! I get super overheated and my skin is hot, dry, and red. I feel ill instead of great!! Please help. I would love to use a sauna or work out in heat. I love going into a steam room because I feel like I am actually sweating. Is that as good for me?? Why the heck don’t I sweat?

  • Hi guys! Do you think you can make sauna exciting? Have a look at a day’s of work of a sauna master in Poland ����


  • Too much cheering to my taste! Besides, I cant stand trainers that stop exercising and dont follow the group. Everybody gotta do it together. Disliked the video.

  • Thomas, what about finishing with a plunge in a 52 degree pool, this is my ritual, lot’s of insulation haha I watched both of your earlier vids. Started the 3o day IF yesterday, works with my schedule perfectly.

  • Cold before workout and heat hot water and sauna after a workout!

    Heat shot proteins protect folding proteins
    Journal of athletic training figures out that cell structure changed and increasing lipolysis happens when temperature and heart rate is increased
    -58% increase in nopreinaphrine!
    -53.9% HSP increased cells therefore recover easier and you put cell in great place to grow and the cells can better attract amino acids.
    -prevent muscle atrophy this is why you can relax and live longer
    -Elisite more of a recovery response due to increased blood flow
    -more red blood cells means you can work out harder so use cold and hot to stimulate red blood cells

  • I played ball 03-07. No resources like this. The talent today is insane…BUT my little cousin is an all-leaguer and still cant be ya boy cuz of that lockdown D and physical offense era I came from.

  • I’ve only just started going to a sauna, so this information is fantastic. I am training or a full marathon on at the end of next year so any extra insurance is a bonus!

  • Will I get some results if I sit in a steam room or does it need to be dry heat? I have both at my gym and I prefer the steam but if it doesn’t help me like a sauna would, I’ll try the sauna and gradually work up a tolerance for the dry heat.

  • I’m on a keto diet and ran into trouble twice because of eating too little calories. My appetite is basically non existent on a zero carb diet, and when you just don’t get hungry you’re in the danger zone. I know more people lost their appetite on a zero carb diet and for them it is important to track that you get enough calories.

  • Great to know. In the fall and winter months I always enjoy the sauna. I had no idea of the benefits I just do it because it feels great.

  • I’ve been watching you and dr Berg for the past 2 years. I’ve done baby steps in getting rid of my bad habits. But for the past 6 weeks I’ve truly been incorporating your advice and I have never felt better. 5 inches off the belly 15 pounds lost. You have changed my life thankyou. I’m going to keep it up! I’ll get back to you in 6 months!

  • I do cardio three days a week and this by far was the hardest popsugar cardio I’ve done. Fast and advanced but overall a good workout.

  • these pushups are literally “how not to do a pushup”. bums are up, elbows are out, chests are nowhere near to the ground, and the leader especially is doing a bird-neck to the ground.

  • I intermittent fast and keto, do pretty heavy workouts and am in a calorie deficit, is it still good go in the sauna, cause I feel like a ZOMBIE���� more bcaas?!

  • I love Saunas, and my routine goes like this. 15 20 mins in Sauna, then ice cold shower and dip in the pool. Then repeat the process several times over 2 hours or so.

  • you stay in long enough your forehead will start to tingle. And you will start to get a natural buzz. Its like running where its hard, and then you get that runners high and can run forever. Takes about 30 mins for me(not all in one sit) i do it in 5 min intervals. Then a cold shower after. You will feel awesome

  • Love this! Been a huge advocate for sauna work, but didn’t know some of these facts. I’ve always been curious of some of the benefits apply to steam rooms, as well.

  • I used to have pretty frequent occular auras in my vision, but when I started doing regular time in the sauna these episodes have greatly shrunk if not been eliminated. Maybe it’s a coincidence, but I’ll keep doing it.

  • 0:34 My gym membership would be terminated and I would probably be investigated by social services if I took a 3yo into the sauna here in the UK. No under 16yo are allowed!

  • 30 minutes in the sauna can be dangerous for some people…i would start with 10 minutes and work your way up to 20 minutes. see how your body handles that before just jumping into 30 minutes, some suanas are 180 degrees F. ive heard of people passing out in the suana, this is why i throw these words of caution

  • Excellent video! I would love to see a video on the benefits of Cold (ice baths) vs. Heat (sauna) therapy related to fat loss and the pros and cons of combining the two therapies

  • Definitely not recommendable to do this workout after another workout….I was dying, I had to pause the video a few times but I completed it! I’ll do this workout more times and try to pause less each time until I can do it with no pausing at all! <3

  • I’m not insecure or anything but I really hate when old dudes get naked in the sauna, like I get it you wanna sweat but God damn dude why the fuck u gotta make eye contact with me its creepy

  • Or you can just do the same thing in your bathroom by turning the shower head on make making it as hot as it can go and place a towel at he base of the door to keep the steam in.

  • For those of you saying it was too fast, I thought the same thing. So what helped for this video and ones I watch other than this, is I watch it all the way through. Then do it. If you dont have time to do that, maybe watch a video of workout you want to do, the night before and then do it the next day. Takes the pressure off and the intimidation away, for me anyway. ALSO next, does anyone know how many calories you burned doing this workout? Let me know!

  • For me the less food I eat especially carbs the better I feel mentally and physically I sometimes have to force myself to eat bc Keto or being in Ketosis takes my appetite away and could go days without eating!!!! I will go a few months and not lose a pound but will lose another inch in my stomach ��. I only weigh to make sure I haven’t gained…….. I absolutely ❤️ this way of living!!!!

  • Why do I keep coming back?! These are horrible… but since I started the video I had to finish it. I seriously need to find better 30-minute workouts.

  • What about infrared sauna as mine only goes up to 120 but I still sweat a lot. In fairly sedentary right now with the house arrest situation.
    Does it matter whether infrared or stream or the temperature?
    I’m 70 years of age but I want to be healthy

  • Woa! This is a super hard one, but fun. I felt like I had done a super hard workout by 20 minutes, but I made it through. I am a veteran of Popsugar Fitness, but this one gave me a run for my money. I am sweating buckets right now.

  • I didn’t enjoy this workout at all. Simply because of lack of instructions. Made me sweat. It I didn’t know what I was doing a half the time. No my fav at all

  • Does this include steam rooms? What happened to your live streams? Would love for you to pick that up again, perhaps once a month. ��

  • I have to get in shape as little as two months. It might be impossible, but ima try to my ability to have better conditioning that I had ever

  • I’m here to get in shape for practice, not for the games. It’s rediculous, 5 practices a week no time for recovery, and we might as well be a cross country team

  • No it does not make you less fat you just loose water salt and you might get a heart broblem. ( when 100 centigrades and depending on dry or humid sauna). Whatever, be careful.

  • Amazing workout! But definitely nothing for beginners. You have to know the exercises in order to really quickly do them. modifications are barely explained as everything moves so quick.

  • here is my review: this was by far the hardest workout I have ever done on popsugar. I am advanced, and I had to constantly modify especially the pushup part. The cardio was okay for me, but the blend of strength and cardio without almost no breaks, the moves being complex and the music being upbeat, it was the most challenging workout of my life so far. this is definitely not for beginners or even intermediate in my opinion

  • 1. Stretch every day for flexibility
    2. After every workout run a 17 back and forth sprint on the sideline, rest for 30 seconds, run 15, decrease by two every time etc.
    3. Run a half mile in any direction and come back the same way.
    And most importantly, please keep your body right and eat right please

  • Im just tired of this useless fake stuff this channel posts most of it is filled with things that we know, and it wont get us better, we all know that the real stuff are in those expensive training tutorials. Its just kind annoying tbh

  • I’m wondering what the best duration and frequency one should use a sauna for? I’m a 31 year old male who has sensitive skin (on my face) and mild rosacea (also on my face), so I get concerned my skin won’t be able to handle a sauna or steam-room well.

  • Could you make a video about infrared saunas? What would be the difference? Can a jacuzzi help with metabolism and fat loss too?

  • appreciate what you do, would love to see more videos like this that work whole game/combo drills for older players to maintain their game when we don’t necessarily have the same amount of time as a young kid or teenager

  • I watch all his videos but he always talks like he’s coaching guys. I get it tho, he coaches guys more. But damn I love it when he roasts the guys

  • This is actually stupid. He said sprints don’t help? If you’re only sprinting 5 seconds at a time in a game, then sprinting for 30 seconds 30 times will put you in elite level shape.
