Do you feel like your workout is getting too complicated? Do you not have enough time to get a sweat on thanks to the mess of stacked freeweights and cables your life has become? The set is designed for a fifteen-minute nightmare session, but can be easily modified to become a six-minute burner.
Every odd minute, complete a set of the military press and rest for the remainder of the minute. Every even minute, complete a set of burpees. The short resting time combined with the full-body moves will kick your fat-burning metabolism into life for hours. Rest up, go home and enjoy your next-day DOMS!
Barbell Military Press
Sets: 8 / Reps: 10 / Rest: Remainder of the minute
Position your feet close together and lift the barbell up to your shoulders, palms facing forward. Press the barbell above your head explosively until your arms are fully extended, then lower the weight under control.
Sets: 7 / Reps: 10 / Rest: Remainder of the minute
Start with your feet shoulder-width apart and squat down until your thighs are parallel to the floor. From the bottom of the squat, place your hands on the floor and kick your legs out behind you into a press-up position. Push up until your arms straight and then tuck in your legs at the bottom of the squat position. Drive upwards through your heels until you are 6 inches off the floor and then repeat.
Are you brave enough to give this a go?
