King Crab

King Crab

 

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.

 

 

The Workout

  • Crab Walk Push Up – 10 reps
  • Walking Lunge – 30 reps
