Want to feel your heart thumping, your lungs huffing and puffing, and your muscles burning? Then roll out of bed and start this burpee circuit workout designed to burn calories and totally tone your arms, core, and legs — all before breakfast. It involves three dynamic variations of burpees that you repeat five times (or 10 or more if you want a more intense workout). It just might get you so energized, you can pass on your usual cup of coffee. Well, almost.
Before starting this workout, grab a set of five- to 10-pound dumbbells.
