You know the drill: Hop on the treadmill for a 20-minute interval workout. Next, hit the mat for a few sets of squats and lunges. Then, finish off with some planks and crunches. The thing about getting into a regular workout routine is that it can become, well, routine — even boring.

You’ll be able to mix up your workout style, too — from barre to HIIT to CrossFit, and more. Whether your goal is to torch serious calories, tighten and tone, or improve your flexibility and mobility, we’ve got 275 exercises to reignite your workout motivation. (Seriously, you’ll never think of a burpee, squat, plank or jumping jack the same way again!) Exercise equipment is optional, but having some dumbbells on hand can challenge your body in new ways.
