Today's Workout 8: The floor circuit to blast your upper body

Build crazy muscle all while staying just a few inches off the ground.

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

Most of the time, guys who want to build a big chest head straight for the bench-press station at the gym and hang out there all day. But if you want to break a good sweat (not to mention build insane upper-body strength), you don't have leave the groud.

With this routine, you'll start off heavy with back-to-back dumbbell exercises (dumbbell floor flyes and dumbbell floor presses) and finish off with a pair of core-pounding exercises (pushups and supermans). This intense circuit will have you hitting the floor not only after you've completed the last set, but during the workout, as well.

Directions

You'll do this workout as a circuit, meaning you'll do each exercise consecutively without rest. Once you've completed all exercises, rest for 30 seconds. Repeat the whole circuit for 5-10 rounds.

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