Four tough moves, four minutes of high-intensity work – get ready for the quick total-body blitz that is the 43rd Friday Challenge.

Gang,

Now the Christmas party season is upon us, finding time to get full-length workouts done can be tricky. That's where this short and incredibly vicious Friday Challenge comes in, it'll take a fraction of the time of one of your normal workouts and will work your major muscle groups just as hard. Here's what we're asking you to do:

Do as many reps of the following moves as you can in the following time...
- 1 minute of round the worlds (swap sides after each rep)
- 1 minute of medicine ball core rotations
- 1 minute of kettlebell squats (use a 16kg bell)
- 1 minute of burpees

Aim for 20 seconds rest between each move, take more if you need it but don't go over 60 seconds.

You'll need to warm up before you get started so try this Men's Fitness Friday Challenge warm-up we've devised.
