Here's a nice little workout of the week! I am naming this Metabolic Magic because it hits two of the things we need to lose fat...a little bit of conditioning as well as building muscle through strength training. Depending on your experience in the weight room, you can use a barbell or dumbbells. I know my back squat numbers so I based the percentages off my one rep max. If you would rather use dumbbells, go for it!
You will start with 1000m row and go down by 100m each round. Then you will do 10 back squats at a light weight and go down by one rep each round as you build in weight. So each round starts with a row and finishes with a round of back squats both descending every round.
You can go different ways with this workout depending on what you are trying to accomplish.
For speed: Go harder on the rows and try to negative split (go faster) each time, and use lighter weights in the squats.
For strength: Go heavier with the squats and use the row as an active recovery, going about 60%.
Let me know how it goes! Tag @leenyhoff on Instagram and show me your numbers!
