Building muscle and burning fat fast can be a serious challenge—especially if you’re short on time. Luckily, Men’s Health offers workouts that challenge you metabolically and spark your muscles to grow.

We have the best trainers at our disposal to show us the workouts that will guarantee you the fastest results, even if you’re in a rush.

In fact, that’s exactly what trainer Samantha Ciaccia shows us in the video above. It’s a hardcore workout that takes no more than 10 minutes, but works the muscles all over your body and burns fat to boot.

“I’m going to show you a workout that’s great when you don’t have that much time and you just have a set of kettlebells,” Ciaccia says. “It’s perfect for burning out that posterior and anterior chain,” meaning the muscles at the front and back of your body.

Grab the nearest kettlebells, and start with a kettlebell deadlift. “You’re going to work on an increasing ladder of reps starting with two, four, six, eight, all the way up to 10, and then drop from 10 to two,” says Ciaccia. That’s a lot of deadlifts.

For proper technique, Ciaccia says, “Push those hips back into the hip hinge, find those kettlebells, push into the ground, and stand.”

But the workout doesn’t stop there. Every time you perform a deadlift, shoot your feet back and perform a push-up. In total, this workout will take you 10 to 15 minutes—and you’ll build muscle all over your body.

Everyone has abs—you just need to burn enough fat to see them. Reveal your six pack with the cutting-edge ANARCHY ABS training program.
