Nothing that quite compares to ending a workout knowing you gave it absolutely everything you had. And that’s what workout finishers are all about. Also called metabolic finishers, these exercises are meant to make sure you’ve used up every bit of fuel in the tank, so to speak.
Trainer and fitfluencer Anna Victoria loves them, and shared her favorite calorie-burning move—the pushup to bicep curlin the video above. “I like it because it’s a total-body exercise, it works all your major muscle groups, and it gets your heart rate up,” she says.
Here’s how to do it: Grab a pair of dumbbells heavy enough to make it challenging to complete 10 biceps curls. Holding the dumbbells, start in a pushup position. Do a triceps pushup, bending your elbows back and close to your sides. Then push up with your palms on the dumbbells.
Next, keeping your abs engaged, jump into a squat position, then curl the dumbbells. Put the weights back down, and jump back into a pushup position and repeat. “When you’re in the squat, keep your chest up,” says Victoria. Add 10 reps to the end of your cardio or strength sessions for optimal burn.
If you’re struggling with form, drop down to a lower weight. You can also modify by doing the triceps pushup on your knees. This compound exercise targets your core, chest, biceps, and quads.
By tacking the move to the end of your workout, you’ll maximize your calorie burn and leave everything on the floor.
