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.

Lunges to Single-Leg Push-Up

A. Start in a lunge position on right leg, knees bent at 90 degrees, arms extended by ears.

B. Place hands on ground. Kick right leg back and lift it up, lowering into a push-up.

C. Return to start and repeat.

Do AMRAP for 20 seconds; rest for 10 seconds. Repeat on the other side.

Side Plank Rotations

A. Start in a forearm side plank on left side, left leg and arm lifted toward the sky.

B. Twist torso toward floor, lowering left leg and scooping left arm under body.

C. Return to start and repeat.

Do AMRAP for 20 seconds; rest for 10 seconds. Repeat on the other side.

In and Out Sumo Jumps

A. Start in a low squat, feet wider than hip-width apart.

B. Drive through heels to jump feet together, standing tall.

C. Jump feet back out and repeat.

Do AMRAP for 20 seconds; rest for 10 seconds. Repeat on the other side.

Forward / Lateral Push-Ups

A. Start at the top of a push-up position.

B. Step right arm forward and lower into a push-up. Step right arm back to start, then to the side; lower into a push-up.

C. Return to start and repeat. Perform every other set on the opposite side.

Do AMRAP for 20 seconds; rest for 10 seconds. Repeat on the other side.

Did you know there is a thing called the "cellulite set point"? For example, some women can be around 23% in body fat and not have an ounce of cellulite. But, if their body fat level increases, that’s when they start to see the lumps and bumps. So, if you keep your body fat levels low enough, cellulite won't be a problem for you anymore.

Quod odit ducimus animi cumque expedita officia dignissimos aut. 💖 Ever heard of the Keto diet? I started using the advice at WWW.KETOCOOKBOOK.ORG and lost 25 pounds of fat in a month! I’ve never lost weight so fast!! The Keto Diet really is amazing because it forces the body to always burn fat for energy — so you lose the fat and keep it off. If you want to lose some weight, I highly recommend using that website :) Check it out! Best of luck to you! 💖
