Today’s Video: Metabolism Boosting Workout For Fat Loss #2 of 4

Warm up on each exercise until you have your 8RM (the maximum amount of weight you can use on the particular exercise that allows you to do 8 reps on each and no more). This is your starting weight. This will be heavy.

ExerciseRepsRep MAXTempoRest
Snatch Grip Deadlift378RM401040 sec
Barbell Push Press378RM301040 sec
Leg Press378RM401040 sec
Bentover 2-Arm DB Row378RM301140 sec

Do as many of A1-A4 (resting 40 seconds between each) as you can for the first round; this should be 8 of each.

Then You rest for 40 seconds and start the next round. Again, do as many as you can using the rest periods in-between. The next round you may only be able to do 5-6. You continue going through the rounds until you reach a total of 37 reps for each exercise.

Once you have reached 36 for a particular exercise, you drop that out of the rotation.

So your reps for Deadlifts might be 8, 7, 6, 6, 5, 5 in this case, it took you 6 rounds to achieve your 37 reps.

This is a great way to boost your metabolism and you will be exhausted if you choose your loads correctly.

    Thank You Flavia for these workouts, they are great!

  • Libby says:

    Can you give an example of how a person would warm up on each exercise until they are at their 8RM? I’m not sure I understand that. Are we supposed to keep trying heavier weights until we find one that makes it difficult to achieve the 8 reps and that’s our warm up? What about subsequent weeks? Do we use the weight that we found the first week or start the process over each week? Thanks for your help!

    • Flavia says:

      Yes, that is exactly right. Choose a weight and add until you cannot do more than 8 reps. That is your 8PM.

      Subsequent weeks you should be getting stronger so your warmup set would be last weeks weight and if you can do more than 8 reps, than you add weight.

      Cheers! Great questions.
