Attack your glutes, hamstrings, and quads with this punishing lower-body circuit.

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

It doesn't matter what time of year it is—this intense, four-move circuit always brings the heat.

With a combination of three fundamental legs moves—the squat, the deadlift, and the lunge—plus a tricky yoga pose, this circuit will give you the burn you've been craving in your quads, glutes, and hamstrings to stimulate visible growth. After six rounds of this circuit, trust us: Your lower body will be on fire—and you'll see the difference.


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 60 to 90 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.
