I know, I know. A 200-rep workout sounds like a particular kind of hell, but you must remember what doesn't kill you helps you kick ass. The best thing about this workout is that you can take it at your own pace. While I catch my breath between sets, I straighten up my living room — a wonderful perk of the at-home workout. The worst thing about this workout: burpees. But this wonderful full-body cardio move is only 25 percent of the workout; there are three other exercises to break up the burpee fun.
Directions: After a short and active warmup, complete 10 reps of each exercise in this four-exercise circuit. Repeat for a total of five rounds, totaling 200 reps.
- Alternating backward lunge (one rep = lunging on both sides)
- Side skater (one rep = both sides)
- T-cross sit-up
