This entire circuit builds athleticism from top to bottom, says Andy Speer, creator of this workout and The Anarchy Abs Workout from Men’s Health.
The hip hinge variations progress throughout the round, from eccentric to standard tempo, and, finally, jumps. Not only will this lock in your mechanics, but it will build strength and explosiveness—all crucial for athletic movement.

The handstand kick ups body awareness, balance, and upper body strength for all around athletic improvements, Speer says. The alternating kick handstand is repeated within each round, as repetition is key for technical moves.
