The workout this week is all about pushing yourself harder than you thought possible. The circuit starts with a quarter-mile sprint, which you can do on the treadmill, elliptical, bike, or outside; by the end of the workout, you’ll end up running a mile and a half, total. (Well, sprinting a mile and a half, actually.) In between sprints, you’re going to push yourself through the series of five exercises below, and then get right back to another sprint. Repeat the circuit six times. Record how long it takes you to complete the workout, and then repeat it again in a few weeks to see how you have improved.
