Congratulations: You've made it to phase three of the Eternal Beach-Body Workout Plan.

Get ready to sweat.

This workout will start polishing up your beach body by introducing a circuit protocol. Designed to cram as much work (and as little rest) into 35 minutes as possible, this circuit workout will hit pretty much every muscle in your body while revving your cardio engine to new heights.

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 35 minutes. Once the 35 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.
