Today's Workout 2: The total-body burner
Duration 30-45
Exercises 4
Equipment X

Start your day strong with this rapid-fire lower-body circuit that you can easily squeeze into your pre-work morning routine.

Attack up to 10 rounds of back-to-back Bulgarian split squats, dumbbell overhead presses (for a shoulder-building bonus), dumbbell front squats, and jump squats to work your quads, calves, and hamstrings to exhaustion.

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.
