    Whether you love the last 60-second race in an indoor cycling class or you feel most complete after the long savasana at the end of a power vinyasa practice, you can’t always make it to your  favorite class.

    There are days when meetings run late, after-work drinks pop up on calendars, last minute trips get booked; and there are days when adding the extra travel time to your calendar to get to the gym just don’t feel worth it.

    We get it. That’s why we believe in having a backup plan to get your workout in when your calendar has its way with your workout plans.

    That’s reason number one our sister company created the SweatWorking app: to help you work out anywhere, anytime.

    Among the many talented coaches you’ll find on the app is Liu Gross. Trust Liu to handpick a few anything-but-basic movements to create a total body circuit you wouldn’t dream up yourself. We’ve taken on his “Circuit Crusher” workout and pulled out five movements that can serve as your back-up plan this week.

    Like this circuit, for instance:

    Ready to take on this workout? Here’s what you’ll do with the five moves:

    These are the five exercises listed out. Perform 10 reps of each:
    • Lateral lunge to two single arm bent over rows x 10 reps (each side)
    • Single knee medball rips x 10 reps
    • Single leg dumbbell overhead tricep extension x 10 reps (each side)
    • Alternating bent-over row with arm starting in up position x 10 reps
    • 180-degree squat jumps x 10 reps

    After 10 reps of each movement, rest for one minute. Repeat the circuit three times total.
