Get ready to feel the burn. In this routine, you'll work your muscles as hard as possible for 40 seconds, while only resting 20 seconds. Keeping your muscles under tension for such a long period of time will leave them begging for the short rest breaks.
The payoff: It'll pump up your muscles and heart rate simultaneously for a workout that crushes calories, triggers new muscle growth, and boosts your endurance. This workout consists of three supersets. A superset is where you alternate back and forth between two exercises, until you've done all your sets of both exercises.
In Superset 1, you'll do as many reps of Exercise 1A as you can in 40 seconds, and then rest for 20 seconds. Then you'll do as many reps of Exercise 1B as you can in 40 seconds, and rest for another 20 seconds. That's one round. Do 4 total rounds, and then rest for 60 seconds. After your rest, move on to Superset 2 and repeat the procedure. Once you've done 4 rounds of Superset 2, move on to Superset 3.
