It's a bodyweight burner.

This is a really fun and deceptively-tough—bodyweight workout. One round in, you’re thinking OK, no problem, I’ve got this. But as you keep going… yeah, not so much. These four moves alternate between isolated strength exercises followed by explosive moves. 

Your isolated strength moves include the lateral lunge, which focuses on unilateral lower-body strength, and the inverted shoulder press, which recruits more of your shoulders, upper back, and arms than a traditional pushup.

You'll alternate these with more explosive moves—a squat jump and a mountain climber—that recruit muscles from the same areas. The squat jump will challenge both of your legs, and you're utilizing the full strength of your chest and entire core during the mountain climber

The combination of strength exercises and explosive moves helps you build strength and shore up any imbalances in smaller muscle groups that you might neglect in your regular training, while ramping up the intensity and calorie burn of the entire workout. So yeah, you're definitely gonna feel this one tomorrow.
