Total Body Workout in Less Than, 8 Minutes? Oh Yes

The workout :

Squat 1 set to failure
Bench Press 1 set to failure
Underhand Lat Pulldown 1 set to failure
Military Press 1 set to failure
Seated Row 1 set to failure

5 exercise circuit with NO rest in between sets. Choose a weight for each exercise that is between 70-80% of your max and perform the exercises AS SLOW AS POSSIBLE to positive failure. Instead of counting how many reps you do, time how long you last with each exercise.

Theory of exercise

Inroad theory of exercise : "Inroad is the momentary weakening of a muscle. Inroading is successfully achieved from exercise, not only is muscle growth promoted, but some secondary events take place as well : cardio-respiratory system stimulated, metabolism stimulated, bone increases stimulated." - Doug McGuff, M.D., and John Little
