You've heard of metabolic training and you've heard of mobility training. But the squat press -- shown in the video above -- fits into a category Men's Health Fitness Director B.J. Gaddour calls "metabolic mobility training."

The exercise can be used in one of two ways: as a warmup or as a belly torcher. It all depends on speed.

When done at a slow tempo as warmup, the exercise heats up and activates your muscles, enhances your mind-muscle connection, and improves your flexibility.

But when done as fast as possible, the movement challenges big energy-consuming muscles like your quads, glutes, abs, shoulders, and pecs. Do this for short intervals -- between 30 and 60 seconds -- to ignite a calorie-burning inferno (a.k.a your metabolism).
