If you are looking for a fitness-adventure, look no farther than this workout. Our friend and all-around Wildman Gabor got after this one and was feeling quite pumped after all was said and done. The workout should be done in 3 separate phases. For the 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 rep schemes, do 10 reps of each exercise, then 9 reps of each exercise, then 8, etc...until you're done. This is a relatively high amount of volume so make sure that you scale the exercises appropriately. 

This is an excellent full-body workout to do at home, outside, or while traveling. None of the exercises require an overhead setup (although you can definitely choose to use one) which makes finding your workout location even easier. Another idea is to do this workout with a partner. Switch off with your partner after every exercise and enjoy the steady 1:1 work/rest interval. This should allow you to be even wilder during your work sets.
