This 5-Move Workout Will Get You Absolutely Shredded

Dec 12 / Build Muscle

Trainer: Jen Widerstrom, fitness coach on The Biggest Loser 

Benefit: This five-move workout combines isometric (fixed-position) and plyometric (explosive) exercises to fatigue your fast-twitch muscle fibers that power quick, explosive movements. 

“It’s a full-body series that creates strength and power, but will also shred you up because of the intense calorie burn involved,” Widerstrom says.
