iVillage.com: 10 Easy Ways to Burn More Fat

Add Sports Drills

You don't have to be an athlete to train like one, says Comana. Sports drills add fun to your sessions and work the entire body as a whole, adding an additional fat-burning component. Perform these sports drills on alternate days from your regular workout or pick a few to do as a fun warm-up. "Start slowly and only progress when you have mastered your technique," says Comana. Start by placing markers (pencils, strips of paper, tape etc.) on the ground approximately 18 inches apart – to build a 10-yard “ladder.”

High-knee Stepping Start at the first marker – facing the rest of the ladder. Keeping eyes a yard in front of you, raise your right knee until your thigh is parallel to the ground and take a giant step so that your right foot lands on the next marker. Alternate legs until you’ve hit every marker. Keep elbows bent at 90 degrees and swing them alternately with each step. Turn around and head back down the ladder.

Side Shuffle: Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and knees slightly bent – your right side should be facing the ladder. Step your right foot to the next marker (keep your upper body still -- avoid rocking) and quickly follow it with your left foot. Quickly shuffle down the length of the ladder. Pause, and shuffle back to starting position using your left foot. Repeat.
