With apologies to Wendy ...

Anthony DiLuglio gets metabolic:

If you can't bear to watch the clip, here's the gist of it: do rounds consisting of (1) five clean to press (from floor) using a log if you've got one handy (yeah, right), a barbell if you don't (2) 20 kettlebell swings, any type (3) five box jumps. Rest, then repeat. Start with 5 rounds, and work your way up to 10, decreasing your rest periods as you get stronger. Be sure to choose weights and a box height that challenges you, and--this is important--keep your weight selection constant as you increase your volume and decrease your rest. Otherwise the workout won't be truly progressive.
