You can do this bodyweight workout routine just about anywhere—whether it's in your living room, your office, or the beach.

Today's Workout With Mike Simone: The No-Equipment Circuit to Build Muscle
Duration 30-45
Exercises 4
Equipment X

Always feel like you're too busy to make it to the gym? This is the no-equipment workout you should be doing in your very own living room (or even in your office) to pound your core and chest to exhaustion. 

Crank out 10 rounds of alternating shoulder taps, elbow planks, body saw planks, and a finishing cardio blast of jumping jacks in just 30 minutes, and you'll be on your way to rock-solid abs and a pumped up chest.

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 5 to 10 rounds.

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