Women's Health Australia - - CONTENT - By Jen Ator

Launch your body into spring with ex­plo­sive moves that burn fat, boost me­tab­o­lism and build lean mus­cle!

Whether you’ve been crank­ing out sweat ses­sions all win­ter or you haven’t set foot in­side the gym in a month, right now is the per­fect time to shake things up. And we’ve got the per­fect twist.

Dy­namic, ex­plo­sive work­outs – what ex­perts re­fer to as “power” or “re­ac­tive” train­ing – use leaps, bounds, jumps and throws to build func­tional strength and boost your ath­leti­cism. They also en­gage more mus­cles with every rep and teach your ner­vous sys­tem to re­cruit those mus­cles faster, which helps burn more kilo­joules dur­ing your work­out and for hours af­ter. Con­sider them your ticket to a hum­ming me­tab­o­lism and a lean, strong bod.

In­tim­i­dated? No sweat. “A lot of peo­ple feel daunted by the speed of some of the moves, which is to­tally un­der­stand­able,” says Joe Dowdell, owner of the Dowdell Fit­ness Sys­tems on­line coach­ing pro­gram. Our four-week chal­lenge isn’t about end­less burpees and box jumps. In­stead, we’ll set you up with moves that build mo­men­tum as you work through the plan, so you feel stronger, fit­ter and more con­fi­dent. Let’s go.

“The switch-up of strength moves is key to this plan’s suc­cess … this helps you squeeze more mus­cle power out of every ses­sion”
