This Total-Body HIIT Workout Will Get You Sweating In Under 5 Minutes

You can do anything for five minutes, right? Well, this super-intense Tabata-style workout from social media-famous trainer Kaisa Keranen (@KaisaFit) will seriously test your strength.

The workout challenges you to do some tough moves—including push-up and plank variations you've never seen before—for 20 seconds, fitting in as many repetitions as possible (AMRAP). You get to rest for 10 seconds, then move on to the next move. (ICYMI, this is the basic formula for a Tabata workout.) Repeat the circuit two to four times for the quickest, hardest workout you'll find this side of the barbell.

Get ready for the most intense five minutes of your life. Finished with leftover energy? Do it again.
