Got this from MensHealth. If done properly it is brutal.


You can see the whole thing here:

This is much harder than you think. When i first read it i thought i would be able to do it. Well i had to adjust it with more rest in btw because it's hardcore.

Seriously this will get you in shape if you do it as written.

I love circuit trainings, and this one seems to be challenging, I will be trying it for this week. Currently I am doing Bulgarian Bag Circuit:

The one i posted is hardcore. I thought it would be much easier, but i found myself only doing 6 or 7 of the ten, having much much longer breaks in btw etc etc.

Man... it is an awesome workout...

I have just tried it, I did two circuits using 6.5Kgs dumbell... The first one I was able to complete the 10 stations, 1 min each... the second circuit, I did the 10 station.. but some of them did around 30-40 seconds... one of the toughest circuits I did.

Thanks...

Woah man, I tried this workout and it's pretty outta control.. I'm in good shape, work out regularly.. Dusted off my 55lb dumbells and was able to do almost every exercise with them except for station 4.. but man I took so many breaks, it made me feel like a fatass. Gonna definitely try that some more, great find man.. Green K!

Thanks. I actually did it yesterday. I was sweating profusely. Did 9 of the 10 (i skip the scissor kick as my knee doesn't like it) properly. Then i did 9 again for rd two, but some exercises only for 30 seconds and longer breaks. Didn't do it a third time......hahah

First time i tried this i couldn't even do one round of the first 6 or so exercises properly without taking huge breaks in btw.
