Anytime you use multi-joint movements (like squatting with an overhead shoulder press), you burn more calories and improve strength and power. Explosive multi-joint movements causes an endocrine dump, where your body releases multiple hormones that stimulate your metabolism, growth and repair. This is why you will see a lot of “boot campy” combination exercises in our workouts, like burpees, thrusters, squats, overhead walking lunges, etc.
In this workout, we take 4 different movements and combine them in one exercise that keeps growing as you add each move. All of these exercises are great alone – but when you put them all together, WOW! You get one amazing workout!!
