Combine the martial arts-style moves on these cards to create an intense, boredom-free circuit. Start with the first move, perform as many reps as you can in 60 seconds (keep track of how many you do). Rest for 30 seconds, then move to the next exercise. Continue until you’ve completed all eight moves. Rest for a minute, then repeat the entire circuit. Your goal: beat – or at least match – your rep counts from round one.
Squat thrust with knee thrust
Stand with your feet hip-width apart, arms at your sides (A). Bend your knees, lower your hands to the floor and jump both feet back so you’re in a push-up position (B). Keep your back straight and core braced. Jump your feet back up to your hands, quickly stand up, then bend your right knee and pull it up towards your chest (C). Return to start, then repeat with the left leg.
