Fit this quick-fire workout into your weekly regimen to sharpen up your arms, abs, and quads.

Today's Workout With Mike Simone: Two-Move Routine For Upper-Body Mass
Duration 30-45
Exercises 2
Equipment Yes

Two moves. One piece of equipment.

Whip your entire body into shape with this no-nonsense routine that has two absolutely brutal core exercises—the barbell landmine rotation and mountain climbers. Incorporate 10 rounds of this muscle-pounding circuit (if you can even complete that many) into your routine, and you'll build serious size in your biceps, abs, obliques, shoulders, and legs.


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 seconds. Repeat the entire circuit for 5 to 10 rounds.

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