Today's Workout 99: The 4-move circuit to blast your arms, legs, and shoulders

Ramp up your boring old routine with six back-to-back rounds of this muscle-building circuit.

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

Whether you want to attack the day by getting in a quick pump in the gym or plan on squeezing in a muscle-building session after work, this is the circuit you're going to want to do.

The challenge: six relentless rounds of incline dumbbell rows, dumbbell clean and squats, single-leg stiff-leg deadlifts, and dumbbell incline presses. Together, these moves will work the muscles in your arms, legs, and shoulders to total exhaustion—and build noticeable muscle as a result.

Directions

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.
