For this week’s workout, you’re going to count by five all the way to 50. You’ll start by doing five pull-ups, then you’ll do 10 burpees, next you’ll do 15 reverse flys, and so on, increasing the number of reps by five until you get to the last exercise on the list—50 jumprope jumps. You’ll go through the circuit a total of four times, so get ready for some serious sweat, my friends. Good luck!

The number to remember for your workout this week is 25, guys. That’s 25 reps of each exercise for a whopping 25 rounds. Just kidding! Scared you, didn’t I? Here’s the real deal: You’re going to do 25 reps of each exercise for four rounds. Easy, right? Try to move through the rounds as quickly as possible, taking breaks only when you need them. You’ll end up doing 100 reps of each exercise—that’s 900 reps total! Pretty impressive, if I do say so myself.

Here are your exercises. Happy sweating, Be Wellers!

This week’s playlist was a real team effort, you guys. Earlier today, I asked Philly Mag staffers to send their favorite karaoke songs for a singalong edition of our weekly playlist series and, my goodness, did they deliver. The query actually ignited quite the conversation about which karaoke song is the BEST karaoke song, but I’ll let you peruse our selections below and decide.

As the headline implies, this playlist meant to get you to sing aloud. Like, actually out loud while you work out. Have you ever done it? People will look at you like you are insane, but it’s totally worth it because there is no better way to have a blast while you run, spin, burpee, whatever than by singing aloud as you do it. I promise.

So check out this week’s genre- and decade-spanning playlist, clear your throat, and Belt. It. Out. Your adoring public awaits.

For this week’s workout, we’re keeping it short and simple—short enough to do on your lunch break, even! Here’s the deal: You’re going to complete a circuit of five no-equipment exercises, then run a 400-meter sprint (one lap around a track) as fast as you can. You’ll repeat this circuit, followed by a sprint, as many times as you possibly can in 30 minutes. And no slacking off, guys!

This workout is best done on a track or using a treadmill, but you also use an elliptical or bike. Now, put 30 minutes on the clock and get ready to go. Good luck, Be Wellers!
