A quick full-body workout with a tough set of abs to finish it off. Instead of changing the body part each exercise, this hits each muscle group in succession to tear whatever muscle fibers are left standing. Since we’re hitting these muscles hard right away, be sure to warm up amply; a few laps, some pull ups and a few push ups should do.

Exercise Rep Range
1. Incline Cable Crossover  4-6
2.1/2 press 1/2 fly*  6-8
3. Decline Press  8-10
4. Single Arm Bent Over Row  4-6

*Both arms start fully extended; one arm does a full press while the other arm does a fly, then you switch which arm is doing what. When both arms do a press, that counts as one rep.

**Similar to leg raises, but instead of completing the reps vertically, you raise and lower them in a circular motion. Complete 10 rotating clockwise, and 10 counterclockwise.
