im电竞官网-Traditional ‘supersets’ or circuits ask you to perform a prescribed amount of reps for each movement, before moving onto the next. But to really burn body fat, you need to keep both body and mind guessing. The exercises in this session are compound hybrids – combining two exercises and going back and forth, rep for rep. This makes it impossible to get into an efficient rhythm, ramping up the calorie burn whilst also increasing your speed and coordination.

“This one is all about remaining calm and methodical," says Men's Healthim电竞官网- fitness editor . "You’re going to feel like you’re being knocked around all over the place. So pace yourself. Slow is smooth, smooth is fast.”

im电竞官网-This is a 20-minute alternating EMOM – every minute on the minute. That means you start at the beginning of each minute, do all your reps, then rest for the remainder of the 60-second period. Then go again when the clock ticks into the next minute. Work on the first combo at start of the first minute, then the second combo at the start of the next. Then alternate for the full 20 minutes.

“The moment you start blasting through the reps, you’re liable to lose your train of thought and miss a rep or two. Instead try to count the beats of each movement and breathe in a controlled pattern," says Tracey. "This one is as much about the connection between your brain and your body as it is torching calories.”

You should be working for around 30-45secs each minute. If you start to drift over that, cut back on the reps to get adequate rest and maintain the quality of each move.
