Today's Workout 102: The arms-pumping circuit to incinerate body fat

You'll do a jump squat between all the biceps and triceps exercises in this fat-scorching routine—so get ready to feel the burn.

Man Does Jump Squat Exercise
Duration 30-45
Exercises 7
Equipment Yes

Even if you're a fan of our Today's Workout series, this particular circuit goes above and beyond what your body has probably come to expect when you hit the gym.

With seven back-to-back exercises, three of which are jump squats (so expect your quads, hamstrings, and glutes to be thoroughly exhausted afterwards), this routine not only works your lower body, but also targets your triceps and biceps as well.

So, yeah: This total-body workout will work your muscles harder than usual—but we guarantee you'll want to keep doing it.

Directions

Do this workout as a circuit, meaning you'll complete each exercise consecutively without rest. Once you've finished all exercises, rest for 30 to 60 seconds. Repeat the entire circuit for 4 to 6 rounds.

Depending upon your ability, you may shorten or lengthen the rest periods between circuits. You may also complete more or fewer rounds.
