Get-Fit Real-Quick Workout

Overview

We all hate those workouts. You know the one's we're talking about. They're slow. They're boring. And they don't seem to work. That's why this workout is everything those workouts are not. It's fast. It's intense. And it's fun. You'll get in and out of the gym-and in shape-in no time.

How to do this Workout

Perform this workout 3-4 times per week, as long as you never train more than two days in a row with the program below.

Do this circuit three days a week. Perform one set of each exercise in the order shown. Do each exercise as many times as you can in 30 seconds. Once the 30 seconds are up, rest for 15 seconds, and then move on to the next exercise. Once you have completed one set of each exercise, rest for two minutes. Then repeat the entire sequence two more times for a total of three circuits.

If you get tired and can't finish the 30 seconds, stop and rest for a few seconds and then resume the exercises until time is up. For each exercise, use a weight you can do for about 10-12 reps.

Circuit : Do 1 set of each exercise in a group consecutively, without rests in between. Once  these exercises have been completed, repeat the circuit again - doing 1 set of each with no rests in between. Continue until prescribed number of total sets are performed

Strength : Complete all sets of an exercise at the same time with rests in between. Then move to the next exercise.

Superset : Two moves done consecutively (like a circuit) with no rests in between.
