Then move onto chest exercises such as dumbbell bench presses, chest flies and pushups. Follow up with back exercises such as bent-over rows, lat pulldowns and inverted rows. Finish with 10-20 minutes of moderate to high-intensity cardio.

For the last day of your routine, perform a total body burn workout. Start with a warmup of 2-3 minutes of light cardio.

Perform each exercise for 30 seconds followed by 10 seconds of rest in between sets. Finish off with 10-15 minutes of moderate to high-intensity cardio.
