What It Is

An intense, full-body circuit written by L.A.-based celebrity trainer Andy McDermott. You’ll start with pullups to failure, then move into burpees to tax your whole body. Toes to bar is next followed by a full minute of uninterrupted running. This circuit is done continuously for 10 to 15 minutes.

Why It Works

This circuit will cover all your bases, as it starts with an upper-body pulling exercise, then taxes your energy system and core in addition to jacking up your heart rate. It’s the perfect combination to build strength, burn fat, and improve conditioning, but be warned: “It’s a real test of total-body fitness,” says McDermott.
