The 18-Minute Workout That Hits Every Muscle In Your Body

It’s called the Total-Body Muscle Tremor, and it lives up to its name

By B.J. Gaddour |

Looking for a total-body workout? Metabolic resistance training is one of the best ways to get lean, especially if you follow a 50-10 circuit.

The Total-Body Muscle Tremor, shown in the video, does just that. You have 6 movements that work your whole body. Then you cycle through the movements, one after the other, performing 50 seconds of work followed by 10 seconds of rest.

Alternating between non-competitive exercises allows you to keep the rest short to maximise intra-workout kilojoule burn.

And by using resistance training exercises instead of classic cardio options, there’s a large muscular and oxygen demand which will also elevate your post-workout metabolism.

Here’s a list of all the muscles this short workout hits:

1. Goblet drop squat: lower body, core, and upper back
2. Changing-grip pushup: chest, triceps, shoulders, and core
3 and 4. Reverse lunge dumbbell transfer: legs and hips
5. Row morning: back, glutes, and hamstrings
6. Rolling guard: core and active recovery

Do 3 to 5 rounds of this circuit for an 18 to 30-minute routine that shreds fat and leaves every muscle shaking (in a good way, of course).
