This routine works best at a gym or health club because it incorporates a treadmill and a kettlebell, but if you don’t have access to these pieces of equipment, you could easily substitute time on the treadmill with jogging/walking in place and a kettlebell with a dumbbell.
The guess work is gone with this start-to-finish schedule. After the warm-up, the workout is broken up into five 5-minute intervals. For each one, perform as many rounds as possible of each exercise. For example, the first interval is 5 minutes of Jumping Jacks and Burpees. You’ll do 10 Jumping Jacks and 10 Burpees and immediately repeat the two exercises over and over again until 5 minutes is over. When the time is up, move onto the next interval (Kettlebell Swings and Jump Squats), and do as many rounds as you can in 5 minutes. Continue for the remaining exercises. For maximum calorie-burn, move from one exercise to the next without resting, but always work at your own pace. You’ll finish the workout with a short cool down (catch your breath and do some stretching) before you hit the showers!
