Simply doing more work with light weight for high reps isn’t enough to get you lean. To keep your metabolism high, you still need that stimulus for building and keeping muscle size. That will help boost excess post-exercise oxygen consumption (EPOC), which roughly translates to the number of calories you burn after your workout is over.
That’s why the first exercise here is done straight-sets style, but the rest of the workout consists of supersets with multijoint exercises, along with reduced rest periods and a high volume of work.
