Today's Workout 95: Sculpt your entire body with this 30-minute circuit

Carve your legs, back, and abs using just one barbell and these three classic moves.

Today's Workout By Mike Simone: Barbell-Only Circuit
Duration 30-45
Exercises 3
Equipment Yes

Whether you're looking to fire up your morning workout or post-work gym session, you need this circuit. It's fast—it should take you about 30 minutes—and efficient.

You'll take on back-to-back rounds of barbell bentover rows, barbell back deadlifts, and reverse crunches. Your muscles will feel the burn and your body will get an instant energy boost.


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.
