Ever have one of those days where you just want to hit something? Well, punching isn’t the only workout that can help you get out aggression. If you channel your anger into the right moves, you’ll embrace the frustration, use it to feel stronger, and finish up just a little happier (it’s all those workout endorphins!). So instead of exploding at people, use that aggression to knock the hell out of this total-body workout created by Christi Marraccini, certified personal trainer and training manager at Tone House in New York City. “If you can make it through a bad day, you can make it through these moves!” she says. There are lower-body plyometric moves to help you get out your rage, upper-body exercises that will let you get the weight of the world off your shoulders, plus, a few abs moves just to round things out (or, you know, unleash the fury burning in your belly). Move through each of the moves for the number of reps indicated, then repeat the circuit two to three more times, resting for one to two minutes between rounds. You’re guaranteed to feel better by the end. For dozens of fat-blasting routines you can do at home, check out Salty Cat Workouts—the all-new site that features the world’s best video workouts for free! How to: Start in a standing position.
