One thing I recommend doing to add to your repertoire of bodyweight exercises is to go out and buy one of those pull-up doohickeys you insert in your doorjamb. Or, if you’ve got a tree with a sturdy branch in your backyard, that’ll save you thirty bucks and a trip to Dick’s or Sports Authority.

But for the sake of this post, we’re going to focus on HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) workouts that will leave you sucking air and feeling badass. I also like to call this the “oh shit” workout, because that’s what I utter between sets when I feel like I’m about to collapse. All you need is your body, a little space, and twenty minutes or less to complete these circuits.

To make your circuit routine effective, I recommend focusing on compound exercises like squats, shoulder press, pull-ups, and clean and jerks. Compound exercises are those that require multi-joint movements as opposed to single-joint movements. If you need more ideas for compound exercises, think walking lunges, bent-over rows, bench press and deadlift. Below I’m giving you two different circuit routines that you can do at the gym. Move quickly between stations (30 second rest give or take), and at the completion of the first round of exercises you can take a longer rest (60-90 seconds).
