Your fat stores are not going to like this intense combination of exercises – starting with ab- and pec-shredding crab walks.
What it is:
A 15-minute four-exercise total-body circuit. You start with 10 reps of crab walks (five in each direction), then go into walking lunges, handstands, and a stair run. If you don’t have access to a stairwell, you can hit an incline treadmill or jump rope.
Why it works:
Body-weight circuits usually alternate upper- and lower-body movements, then send you on a run, but the intensity of lunges and handstands (or handstand pushups, for the advanced) are amplified to a huge degree by the crab walk. Your core is taxed the whole time.
Set a timer for 15 minutes and do the following circuit nonstop. Record your rounds completed.
- Crab Walk Push Up – 10 reps
- Walking Lunge – 30 reps
- Handstand/Handstand Push Up – 10/5 reps
- Stair Run – 60 seconds
