3rd round – 3 reps….. etc.
Keep going up until you cannot complete a full set of the exercises. Your fitness level will determine how long this workout lasts, but everyone can do it and work their body to their maximum.

Remember, each exercise back to back. The first few rounds will be fairly easy, but the intensity will increase as you progress! A great workout to measure progress, each time you do this try to push yourself further than the previous attempt
