Today's Workout 122: The to-failure circuit for a total-body blast

How many reps can you do before your muscles start begging you to stop?

Today's Workout with Mike Simone: The 3-Move Circuit For a Total-Body Blast
Duration 30-45
Exercises 3
Equipment Yes

This three-move circuit is a total-body blitz that's going to test your strength, endurance, and mental toughness.

Back-to-back rounds of pullups and hanging knee raises (to failure), along with a finishing round of dumbbell clean and squats, will incinerate fat while forcing your muscles to grow.

Directions

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 five to 10 rounds.

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