      This is the last installment of the Time Crunch workouts. The goal with this 5-workout series is to provide you with a training week you can do when your schedule starts to fill up. Remember, in the grand scheme of things, short intense workouts are always better than no workout at all. Lay out your Time Crunch training week like this:

      Monday: Time Crunch Chest Blast
      Tuesday: Time Crunch Back Blast
      Wednesday: Time Crunch Leg Blast [Workout Below]
      Thursday: Time Crunch Shoulder Blast
      Friday: Time Crunch Arm Blast
      Saturday: Rest
      Sunday: Rest

      The Time Crunch Leg Blast is another giant set with varying reps, loads and movement speeds. Go through each exercise consecutively and take a short 60-second rest after the hamstring curls. Do as many rounds as possible in 10-minutes. In a separate circuit, perform 15-second incline treadmill sprints with 15-seconds rest. Do this for 5-minutes. This will further train your legs and also hit your calves.

      Explosive movement: Dumbbell jump squat
      5-7 reps (zero rest)

      Free-weight movement: Romanian deadlift
      8-10 reps (zero rest)

      Machine-focused movement: Leg press
      12-15 reps (zero rest)

      Isolation movement: Hamstring curl
      20 reps (60-second rest)
