Before you close this because that sounds too hard, bear in mind that as the time your muscles spend under tension goes up, the amount of weight you should use goes down. You should start out using light weights or an unweighted Olympic bar.
Just remember to keep the weight very light for your first attempt — what seems fine on rep one of your first exercise can quickly becomes torturous as you cycle through the circuit. Do the exercises in order, performing 12 reps of each without resting or putting the bar down between moves. At the end of the last exercise rest for two minutes, then repeat the circuit. Do four to six circuits in total. Stand tall with your chest up, holding a barbell across the back of your shoulders with a tight grip.
Squat down as low as you can, then push through your heels to stand back up. Stand tall with the barbell across the back of your shoulders. Lean forwards from the hips until you feel a stretch in your hamstrings, then stand back up.
Stand tall, holding the barbell across the front of your shoulders. Bend your knees, then stand up quickly and push the bar directly overhead. Lower it slowly back to the start. Lie flat on your back with knees bent holding the bar with a shoulder-width grip and arms straight. Bend your elbows to lower the bar down towards your chest then press it back up powerfully.
Stand tall with your chest up holding the bar with an overhand shoulder-width grip. Row it upwards towards your chin, leading with your elbows. Hold the bar with an underhand grip. Keep your elbows close to your sides throughout the move.
Curl the bar up to shoulder height. Pause and squeeze your biceps at the top, then lower it back to the start. Do six reps of each move without putting the bar down to complete one set.
Rest for two minutes between sets. Choose a load that allows you to complete the reps fairly comfortably for your weakest lift, which, in this case, will probably be the overhead press. Complete six circuits in total. Stand tall with your feet shoulder-width apart, holding a barbell with an overhand grip just outside your thighs.
Keeping a slight bend in your knees, bend forwards from the hips — not the waist — and lower the bar down the front of your shins until you feel a good stretch in your hamstrings. Reverse the move back to the start by pushing your hips forwards. Hold the bar with a shoulder-width grip, bending your knees slightly. Pull the bar up to touch your sternum and then lower under control. Stand holding the bar with a shoulder-width grip in front of your thighs.

Catch it on your front shoulders, pause for a second, and then stand up lower the bar back to the start position. Rest the bar on the front of your shoulders with your palms facing upwards and your elbows high.
Squat down, keeping your chest up, then drive up through your heels to stand. Not quite there yet? Cross your arms and grip the bar from the top to save your wrists. With your feet shoulder-width apart, position a bar on your upper chest, gripping it with hands just wider than shoulder-width apart. Brace your abs, glutes and qu as you press the bar straight upwards. Pause at the top, then lower. You might find you can lift more weight by wrapping your thumbs around the same side as your fingers, to keep your forearms in a more favourable position.
At the end of this complex, rest for 90sec-2min. Do five rounds in total. To progress, add a rep to each set or reduce the amount of rest you take between rounds. With knees slightly bent, hinge at the hips to send the bar down your legs until you feel a strong stretch in your hamstrings. Keep your back straight as possible while keeping your head in a neutral position.
Bend at the hips and let the bar hang down. Pull your elbows back to bring the bar up to your stomach. Initiate the movement with a shoulder blade retraction, then row the bar up, leading with your elbows. Progression To make the move even more effective, squeeze your shoulder blades together at the top and hold that position for a second. Lead with your elbows to raise the bar in front of you until it reaches chest level, then lower back to the start.
To initiate the movement, keep your core tight and perform a jumping and shrugging movement. Drive through your calves using Home from the bar want a big load of momentum, keeping in mind that you want high-speed bar movement. Progression Make it a power move by explosively going up onto your toes as you raise the bar to chest height. Press the bar directly overhead, your arms should finish in line with your ears.
If you struggle with that, work on shoulder mobility. Progression Use the same movement but take longer to lower the bar so you maximise the time under tension. This workout has five moves which are performed in a circuit. Do all the reps of move 1 then go straight on to move 2 and complete those reps without resting. Follow this pattern for the rest of the circuit and only rest once you have completed all the reps of the fifth and final move, and for no longer than two minutes.
Do five circuits in total. Do this circuit with just a barbell. Progression If this feels too easy, increase the rep count to 12 or 15 for each circuit of the session. Stand tall with the bar across the back of your shoulders. Squat down as deep as you can. Progression Increase the of reps you do per circuit to 25 if you have more left in the tank.
Do the five moves here in order, performing 15 reps of a lift then moving on to the next one without rest. After the final move, rest for 60 seconds, then repeat. Do six circuits in total. If you want to make the circuit harder you can add weight to the bar, starting with 2. Stand tall holding the bar with a wide, overhand grip. Bend forwards, hingeing from the hips, to lower the bar to knee level.
Push your hips forwards to stand up straight. Reverse the move to the start. Starting from the bottom of the clean, let your arms hang then, leading with your elbows, row the bar in towards your lower chest. Return to the start.
Clean the bar up to the front of your shoulders then, initiating the move with a knee bend, push the bar straight up over your head. Lower it back down to your shoulders. After the last push press rep, lower the bar behind your head to rest on the backs of your shoulders. Squat down, then stand back up.
