10 Minute Workout to Build Muscle Fast

Featured

              Looking for a way to finish off your workout and ensure you see maximum results? Finishers are an excellent way to do so. A finisher is a short series of exercises designed to bring your body to a state of full fatigue, in other words, finish you off. Consistently adding these to your workout program will train your body to resist fatigue, maintain better overall endurance, and see faster results. What are the benefits to finishers? Here are just a few to consider. Greater Metabolic Burn Want to burn fat to get leaner? Finishers will definitely help. As they are so intense, they’ll help drive your metabolic rate upwards for up to 48 hours after your workout session, ensuring that you maximize your fat burning potential. Improved Muscular Strength This finisher involves an element of resistance and while you may not be lifting maximum weight, you are still lifting enough weight to really challenge yourself. This, at the end of the day, can lead to superior strength gains. Then when you do go to lift your heavy weight again, you should find that you are stronger as you’re fresh. Pushing through that fatigued state to get the weight up will provide excellent transfer over benefits. Enhanced Cardio Output Let’s face it, hours on the cardio machines suck. With finishers, you can avoid that. This 10 minute workout will get your heart rate elevated and keep it there the entire time. Since it is so intense, you’ll actually see more fitness benefits than if you had done a full 60 minutes at a moderate pace on one of those exercise machines. Great As A Stand-Alone Session Even better is that this finisher protocol can also be used as a substitute for an entire workout on those days when you’re really short on time. While obviously you don’t want to get in the habit of skipping your standard workouts, if you are very busy and are tempted to skip the session altogether, a finisher can be a great way to avoid that. Since it takes just 10 minutes and still allows you to get some exercise in, it’s an optimal way to stick with your fitness plan and continue to see results. Ready for the protocol? Here’s what you need to do. Your 10 Minute Finisher Workout                 For this finisher workout, you can choose any dumbbell based exercises, provided they are compound in nature. This means no triceps kickbacks allowed. Instead, choose exercises shoulder press, dumbbell push-ups, squat and press, squats, deadlifts, rows, lunges, dumbbell burpees, split squats, alternating dumbbell snatches, or step-ups. What you’ll do is choose four exercises that you’ll use for this circuit and then complete 10 reps of each exercise, moving from one exercise to the next. Take as little rest between the exercises as possible. Continue on in this manner until the 10 minutes is up. Note that there are no scheduled rest breaks in this 10 minute cycle. This said, if you do feel like your form is going, pause briefly and then start up again. Never sacrifice good form. Try this next time you’re finishing up a workout or short on time. You won’t be disappointed. Need Metabolic Workouts that will help you burn fat and build muscle at the same time. Click HERE and go to the Next Page

Advanced Kettlebell Bodyweight Finisher – “The Scenario” (Video)

Featured

This finisher has the best KB exercise of all time… the KB Swing. Now most people get the KB Swing all wrong and you might be, too. You don’t do a squat followed by a front raise (that’s what most people do). The trick is to really “fire” from the hips and glutes and your arms are just along for the ride. When you do KB Swings correctly, you’ll not only get your core stronger, but you’ll also improve your conditioning and hit a lot of muscle at one time. That’s why it’s a staple in this finisher from KB Expert Chris Lopez, CTT… Kettlebell Bodyweight Advanced Finisher – The Scenario Perform each exercise one after the other for one round with no rest in between. 1. 2 Arm Kettlebell Swings – 20 reps 2. Burpees – 10 reps 3. 2 Arm Kettlebell Swings – 20 reps 4. Close Grip Push Ups – 15 reps 5. 2 Arm Kettlebell Swings – 20 reps 6.
