It’s true that this workout only takes five minutes, but it’ll likely be the longest five minutes of your day. And you’ll be glad when you’re finished because it’ll probably leave you pumped and gasping for air. Check it out in the video below…

I really like this style of training for people interested in body transformation. It’s basically a non-stop, bodyweight circuit workout with a variety of exercises that also contains enough similarities among the exercises to challenge a few key muscle groups and movement patterns. For example, there are pushups, burpees, and wide pushups, which all involve a horizontal pressing movement, and will really challenge the triceps, shoulders, and chest. But these exercises are spaced apart just enough to allow for some recovery from exercise to exercise. Similarly, the squats, jumping knee tucks, and burpees all involve a quad-dominant squatting pattern.
So, suffice to say, you’re going to get a fairly broad calisthenics session in a very short period of time. This is possible because the intensity level is high, but still manageable, because you’re constantly changing exercises. When you’re tired from the pushups, you take a “break” with mountain climbers, and then squats, etc. So, the take-home lesson is that this is a very time-efficient way of training that comes with a lot of unique perks, and I’m a big fan of creating circuits like this.
