Total Body Diagonal Training

Workout Description
The total body diagonal training method is a real fat burner. The workouts help light your inner fat burning fire by targeting opposite diagonal muscle groups and finishing off with ‘shocker’ exercises and treadmill intervals. The workout is based on a principle of supersetting upper body push exercises with lower body pull exercises, then upper body pull with lower body push exercises. The shocker exercise has been thrown in at the end of your workout as a part of the body which hasn’t been directly targeted by the previous four exercises. This will flow the blood all around your body and help to shock your body into responding.  This may sound a tad complicated but the workout is simple, you are working your entire body each workout while burning sat and stimulating your muscle groups in a way which perhaps they haven’t been stimulated before.

Workout Notes
Superset training, there are two workouts. Swap between workouts A and B each time you workout, with at least a days rest between workouts. For example, in week 1 perform workout A on Monday and Friday, workout B on Wednesday. The following week perform workout B Monday and Friday, workout A on Wednesday. You don’t have to perform 6 sets of each exercise, you can time yourself if you prefer, simply performing as many supersets as you can within a certain time allocation, 10, 12 or 15 minutes should do it per pair of exercises.
