Metabolic resistance training is one of the best ways to get lean, especially if you follow a 50-10 circuit.
The Total-Body Muscle Tremor, shown in the video above, does just that. You have six movements that work your whole body. Then you cycle through the movements, one after the other, performing 50 seconds of work followed by 10 seconds of rest.
Alternating between non-competitive exercises allows you to keep the rest short to maximise intra-workout kilojoule burn.
And by using resistance training exercises instead of classic cardio options, there’s a large muscular and oxygen demand which will also elevate your post-workout metabolism.
Here’s a list of all the muscles this short workout hits:
1. Goblet drop squat: lower body, core and upper back
2. Changing-grip push-up: chest, triceps, shoulders and core
3 and 4. Reverse lunge dumbbell transfer: legs and hips
5. Row morning: back, glutes and hamstrings
6. Rolling guard: core and active recovery
Do 3 to 5 rounds of this circuit for an 18 to 30-minute routine that shreds fat and leaves every muscle shaking (in a good way, of course).
