101 Best Workouts of All Time is the ultimate answer to the question "What workout should I do?" No matter what equipment you have available, from a fully-stocked supergym to a pair of mismatched dumbbells in your garage, or nothing but your body weight alone, you can build muscle, lose fat, and sculpt the physique you've always wanted.

It’s probably best that you leave mixed martial arts fighting to the professionals in the UFC and watch it from the safety of your couch (behind the bag of Fritos). But there’s no reason you can’t train like a fighter to lose fat and build your wind. The following is a pretty good simulation of an MMA fight—you know, without the foot about to land upside your head.

HOW IT WORKS
The workout lasts approximately as long as a real championship MMA fight: five rounds. In those rounds you’ll perform a little of nearly every kind of exercise that fighters use to prepare for battle, from jumping rope to bodyweight circuits to combinations on the heavy bag. Use it to get in fighting shape, and then watch the real fights from the safety of your couch.

DIRECTIONS
Follow the instructions for the five rounds.
