Total-Body Moves to Tack Onto Your Workout
Top It Off
If weightlifting is the fast track to fat loss—and most experts agree that it is—then why do so many guys in the gym have a gut? "Too many of them focus on beefing up body parts instead of trying to work as many muscles as possible," says B.J. Gaddour, C.S.C.S., owner of StreamFit.com. One solution: metabolic finishers—one or two exercises performed at the end of a workout that turn it into a total-body sweat session. "Think of them as fast-paced finales that ignite muscle growth and accelerate weight loss," says Gaddour. "Oh yeah, and they're great for melting stubborn belly fat."

Build TWICE the muscle in HALF the time and burn as many calories as with workouts that last twice as long with the Men's Health 15-Minute Abs, Arms & Chest Workouts DVD.
Do This: Select the finisher that transforms your typical routine into a total-body workout. If your workout targets your upper body, for example, go with the lower-body finisher. Already doing a total-body workout? Then shift your metabolism into high gear by performing the final two finishers (A and B) as a superset (back to back with 10 seconds of rest between them). Repeat the superset 8 times.
