Today's Workout 117: The 10-round, high-intensity circuit to melt flab

Back-to-back rounds of these three cardio and core-building moves will leave you drenched in sweat—and a whole lot leaner.

Today's Workout with Mike Simone: 10-Round Cardio Circuit
Duration 30-45
Exercises 3
Equipment Yes

You don't want to do this circuit before work unless there's a shower nearby—it may only take 30 minutes, but it'll leave you drenched in sweat.

Attack 10 rounds of jumping jacks, mountain climbers, and alternating shoulder taps to unload calories, blast fat, and build all-around strength.


You'll 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 10 rounds.

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