1. Burpees

Most seasoned gym goers have a love-hate relationship with burpees. While you might shy away from including them in your routine, George says they should take centre stage.


"You can do them anywhere, you don't need any kit.

"They are great for cardiovascular gains but also work your chest and triceps, and it's a full body movement."

2. Thrusters

"I love thrusters. They're extremely painful.

"You can do them with 30 kilos for high reps and it's absolutely horrendous, or you can do it with 110 kilos and develop raw strength. They are great for legs, shoulders and triceps."

3. Assault bike

"Brutal piece of kit, great cardio in interval form and blasts the quads. I just love it."
