Metabolic Blasters: Part 2

May 19, 2015

This week we will perform another Metabolic Blaster. Here we will combine two or three movements back to back, resting as needed. You’ll want to do opposing muscle groups or switch from upper body lower body movements. That way you’ll be giving the first muscle you worked a break while you go right into the second and then third movement. Performing the set this way will keep your heart rate up and give you a real metabolic effect. These sets should get progressively harder as you go. With this you’ll do 8-10 repetitions on each movement and set the clock for anywhere from 3-10 minutes. I like this method because you’re competing against the clock so you’ll only break when needed, and most of the time you’ll be able to get more work in because you’re not limiting yourself with a predetermined number of sets.

Again, watch the video, and pay attention to the intensity and the rest I take when needed.

Perform the following set for 10 reps AMRAP in Three minutes

  • Incline Bench press
  • Alternating reverse lunge
  • Alternating bent row

There it is another great circuit to really challenge your body and crank your metabolism up.
