Workouts shouldn’t be long and boring, after all it’s not how long you spend at the gym that matters – it’s how hard you train. In fact, shorter but intense workouts are a lot more effective than long, light ones.

Adding weight training is one of the best weight loss strategies, but today, we want to show you a little trick that a lot of fitness competitors use to burn some extra calories in about 10 minutes AFTER their workouts. A 2-3 HUNDRED extra calories to be a more exact.

The Metabolic Finisher is just a fancy name for a high intensity interval training (HIIT) routine that is added at the end of your weight training session.

The benefit – it adds an additional metabolic boost, but takes a lot less time than the traditional (slow paced cardio). In other words, you do less to burn more and that’s how any workout should be – short and to the point.

In this video Ivan demonstrates one of his Metabolic Finishers that will leave you panting and sweating.
