Maximize your strength training routine by cutting out these time wasters.Read article
The answer? A workout that burns fat and trains the core. This routine covers both bases.
It’s true that front squats are a leg exercise and overhead presses primarily work the shoulders, but both are also major abs builders. Your core has to work hard to keep you from collapsing forward on the front squat and from bending backward on the overhead press. The suitcase deadlift, on the other hand, makes your core tense to prevent you from bending sideways.
These moves also double as great metabolism boosters. Because they’re so challenging and recruit so many different muscles, they’ll keep your body recovering for days, and that means you’ll burn more fat while resting.
Perform the exercise pairs (marked “A” and “B”) as alternating sets. So you’ll do a set of A, rest, then a set of B, rest again, and continue for all the prescribed sets.
