10 Minute Calorie Wipe Out Plan
Post at 12:52 - 11/04/2018

Short but sweet, this workout will leave your muscles and metabolism truly scorched

 

This quickfire sessions is engineered to ramp up your energy-burning potential. "By holding a rep at its crucial point or adding half reps, more blood is forced into the muscle," says PT Ray Klerck. "So each time you switch body parts, your body is maxed out trying to keep up." Repeat this 5-move circuit twice, minimising rest. Don't dawdle. Remember: you're only working for 10 mins today - you can relax for the other 1,430. 

Barbell squat

Stand with your feet more than shoulder-width apart and hold a barbell across your upper back with an overhand grip – avoid resting it on your neck. Hug the bar into your traps to engage your upper back muscles. Slowly sit back into a squat with head up, back straight and backside out. Lower until your hips are aligned with your knees, with your legs at 90 degrees – a deeper squat will be more beneficial but get the strength and flexibility first. Drive your heels into the floor to push yourself explosively back up. Keep form until you’re stood up straight: that’s one.

 

 

 

Lying dumbbell triceps extension

Grab a pair of dumbbells and sit on the end of a flat bench. Lie back and raise the dumbbells above your head using a neutral grip, palms facing each other. Bending at the elbows and keeping your upper arms set, lower the dumbbells until they are about level with your ears. Squeeze your triceps and raise the dumbbells back to the starting position.

 

 

Front squat

Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart holding a barbell across your upper chest. You can either support the weight on your fingers, with wrists extended, or cross your arms to support the weight. Taking care to keep to not arch your back, push your hips back and bend your knees to lower your body until your thighs are parallel to the floor. Drive your heels into the floor to push yourself explosively back up to the start position.

 

 

 

Diamond press-ups

Get in a press-up position and place your hands together so your index fingers and thumbs form a diamond. Keep your back straight as you lower until your chest almost touches the floor then push back up to the start position. 

 

 

 

Barbell deadlift

Squat down and grasp a barbell with your hands roughly shoulder-width apart. Keep your chest up, pull your shoulders back and look straight ahead as you lift the bar. Focus on taking the weight back onto your heels and keep the bar as close as possible to your body at all times. Lift to thigh level, pause, then return under control to the start position.
