Try This 15-Minute Workout from Shawn Booth of "The Bachelorette"

There's no shortage of Bachelor drinking games on the internet—meant to be played while watching the show. You could, in theory, convert any of them into a workout game, but doing a push-up every time Chris Harrison calls this season "the most dramatic yet" would leave anyone sore for days. (Related: Your Favorite Bachelor Contestants Spill the Secrets That Help Them Look Fit On TV)

Instead, knock out this heart-rate-boosting, high-intensity circuit workout from trainer and season 11 Bachelorette alum Shawn Booth before an episode. It's a full-body, no-equipment routine you can do anywhere—"all you need is a body," says Booth. "We're hitting all major muscle groups!"

It takes roughly 15 minutes, so you'll easily be able to squeeze it in with time left over to crack open the rosé. (Bonus points: Do this 7-minute HIIT workout during commercial breaks.

How it works: Do three rounds of this five-move circuit with 1 minute rest in between rounds. For the first round do as many reps as possible (AMRAP) for 30 seconds of each exercise, for the second round, do AMRAP for 45 seconds per exercise, for the third, AMRAP for 60 seconds per exercise.

Total Time: up to 15 minutes
