If you want to concentrate on burning the fat in your chest, back, and core, here's a circuit exercise that's perfect for you. Argie Samson of The Peninsula Manila shares a few tried-and-tested moves to get your metabolism pumping! From our favorite Superman pose to the always reliable Bicycle Abs, your muscles will definitely get a workout. Combine this circuit with circuit training set for legs and shoulders for maximum effect.

1. MODIFIED PUSH-UPS


Step 1: For a slightly easier push-up pose, support your upper body with your knees (for a normal push-up pose, see Argie's straight form to the left). Keep both arms slightly bent in front, and cross your feet behind.


Step 2: Lower your upper body down as far as it can go without actually touching the mat. Repeat several times.

Difficulty level: 3/5

2. RENEGADE ROW OR PLANK ROW


Step 1: Assume push-up or modified push-up position. This time, instead of lowering your upper body to the mat, try to raise the weights one at a time.

Difficulty level: 5/5

3. SUPERMAN


Step 1: Lie down on your stomach with your legs and hands an inch above the ground.


Step 2: Simultaneously raise your arms and your legs. Bring them back down an inch above the ground. Repeat.

Difficulty level: 2/5

4. FLYES AND LEG RAISES


Step 1: Lie down on your back with both arms slightly extended and dumbbells held up.


Step 2: Bring the dumbbells together as if to clap your hands and simultaneously raise your legs up with knees slightly bent.

Difficulty level: 3/5

5. BICYCLE ABS


Step 1: Lie down on the mat with both hands behind your head. Raise your hips up, but keep your knees bent.


Step 2: Twist your upper body to the side. Steer your left elbow downward to meet your raised right knee. Do the same for the other side.

Difficulty level: 2/5
