This exercise will only take you eight minutes, but we guarantee you’ll feel more after these eight minutes than you do after your series of mindless crunches.

Complete each move for one minute, doing as many reps as you can within that one-minute period. Move straight to the next move with no rest. After the final exercise, rest for a minute and then repeat the whole sequence one more time for an effective eight-minute total body workout.
