Giant sets are one of the best ways to build size and strength in a short time, but they can also be a great way to get your heart rate up and shed fat. For the uninitiated, a giant set consists of five different exercises that are performed with minimal rest in an AMRAP (As Many Rounds As Possible) format. It's a great way to get a total-body, hardcore workout that'll leave you gassed in half the time.

Pro tip: Start with a proper dynamic warm-up prior to this workout. You will be using all muscle groups, so you’ll need to be loose. As a general rule of thumb, you should have a light sweat going by the end of any warm-up.

Once you're warmed up, let's get into the workouts. Treat exercises 1-5 as one circuit, rest, and then perform exercises 6-10 as another circuit.
