Now that you’re into the next week of training in Phase III of the Eternal Beach-Body Workout Plan, you’ll notice that these grueling circuit workouts are starting to get a little longer. But don’t be tempted to sandbag your way through the first few minutes and then turn up the heat—try to keep the same consistent pace throughout, and attack the last five mintues with even more intensity.

Will it be difficult? Sure. But you’ve been training hard to prepare for these workouts, and your dedication now will pave the way for the beach-body you want. Grab a set of dumbbells and get to work.

Directions

This workout is done in two parts. The first part (exercises 1-10) is a circuit. You’ll do as many rounds of that circuit as you can in 40 minutes. Once the 40 minutes are up, you’ll move on to the second part of the workout (exercises 11 and 12), which is done in conventional straight sets.
