You’ve probably heard the term “metabolic training” – it’s hot in the fitness industry right now, with good reason.  If you do it, you’ll burn more calories at rest.

“It’s one of the most efficient and effective ways to train,” says Personal Trainer Angie Gallagher.  “You use those big muscles in the lower body which generates a higher heart rate and stimulates the release of hormones that burn fat.”

So squats and lunges are a key part of metabolic training.  If you combine them with upper body moves you’ll get a full body workout in a short amount of time. The key is push yourself hard, with very little rest.

Some studies suggest you’ll increase calorie expenditure by 10-25 percent for up to 48-hours after your workout.
