Push, Punch, and Plank Your Way to a Stronger Body In Just 4 Minutes
This super effective circuit workout will get you toned in no time—and help you channel your inner badass
Tough day? Need to get some aggression out? Don't want to go all the way to the gym? We feel ya-which is why we had trainer Kaisa Keranen put together this do-anywhere, total-body routine.
You'll punch, push, and plank your way through this circuit workout in just four minutes (yes, just four!), and target your upper body, lower body, core, and cardio endurance. If this quickie sweat set doesn't help you feel better, we're not really sure what will. Except maybe another one of Keranen's #FITin4 workouts.
