The 5-4-3-2-1 Workout That Everyone is Talking About

I don't know what you have heard about exercise regimes, but I have heard about the 5-4-3-2-1 workout that I greatly recommend for those that cannot do too much exercise and want to lose weight fast.

I am on a diet called the Chemical Diet Plan at present and this exercise regime is a bonus workout that can be incorporated whilst doing any kind of diet. Take a look below and start this regime a couple of days before you start your diet. It will boost your energy and help you feel more positive about your weight loss diet.

I have been doing the 5-4-3-2-1 workout daily. It's definitely the best exercise regime for weight loss I have adopted in a long time. Please give it a try.

Here is the workout exercise regime that I want to share with you all.

-if you're at home
   - 1 minute high knees

   - 1-minute run in place

4 minutes

Drink water and take breaks when you need them. If you are just starting out, take more breaks, especially between each section.

Good luck and have fun!


  1. What I liked best is that the program was personalised to me specifically so I could start the program first thing the next morning after I arrived. I’m told often guests arrive at the airport in afternoon/evening,  Rachel Worthman
