Today's Workout 64: The 4-move circuit to to cut weight and build muscle

This straightforward routine starts out hard—and ends even harder—to burn serious calories and reveal muscle definition.

Man Does Jump Squat Exercise
Duration 30-45
Exercises 4
Equipment Yes

There may be only one exercise in this fat-blasting routine that requires you to use weight—the dumbbell jump squats—but that doesn't mean the rest of the moves are going to feel light on your muscles.

In fact, by the end of this 30-minute circuit, we bet your arms, legs, core, and chest are going to feel heavy with 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 4 to 6 rounds.

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