The Metabolic Monsters workout I shared with you a few days ago was a hit.

So got another one for you to try today!

Let’s get right into it –

Explosive Strength and Farmers Walk Workout
from Metabolic Monsters

Cycle through 5 exercises covering the major movement patterns of your body using explosive/power-oriented exercises for low reps all the way through.

As well, instead of taking rest, you’re going to be doing heavy dumbbell Farmers Walks in between exercises to maximize overall workload and the metabolic training effect on your body.

After you finish a circuit, then take 3 minutes rest and go again. Perform this circuit for 2 to 4 rounds. After 4 rounds, your explosiveness will really start to fade and the training won’t be as effective.

Exercise 1 – One-Arm Dumbbell Power Snatch – each arm x 3 reps

In-Between Exercise … Heavy Dumbbell Farmers Walks x 30 feet

Exercise 2 – Explosive Medicine Ball Push-Ups – 3 to 5 reps

In-Between Exercise … Heavy Dumbbell Farmers Walks x 30 feet

Exercise 3 – Bottom Start Front/Back Squats – 1-3 reps

In-Between Exercise … Heavy Dumbbell Farmers Walks x 30 feet

Exercise 4 – Band Chin-Ups x 4-6 reps

In-Between Exercise … Heavy Dumbbell Farmers Walks x 30 feet

Exercise 5 – Dumbbell Stiff-Legged Deadlifts – 2-4 reps

In-Between Exercise … Heavy Dumbbell Farmers Walks x 30 feet

And you’re done … you will have hit literally everything in your entire body with heavy weight while loading yourself during the Farmers Walks done instead of rest.

This Metabolic Monster will develop strength, explosive power (while in a fatigued state) and overall work capacity while cranking up your metabolism.

That’s a great one to do on your next total body conditioning day.
