Having coached some of the fittest men and women on the earth including multiple CrossFit games champions, Ben Bergeron knows a thing or two about putting a workout together.

‘Death Train’ is a benchmark workout that Bergeron dishes up to his athletes and will push you right to the edge of your thresholds and keep you there. This is a quick-fire, all-out sprint workout, so best performed as a finisher or after a very thorough warm-up.

"It's a race to the death—can you get there under 5:00?" Bergeron challenged on Instagram.

Perform five rounds of the following combo, as quickly as possible, with no rest between rounds.

  1. Air Bike x 15 cals

Set up on the bike – your back should be straight and the saddle adjusted so you have a slight bend in the knee at the bottom of your cycle (A). Go for a max-effort sprint until the display reads 15kcal, keeping your torso and head up, and controlling your breathing (B). Try not to flail around, basically. Push the first few calories as hard as possible, then settle into your pace- the slower you go the longer this will take, exponentially.

2. Burpee x 10

Rack your bar, step back and immediately squat down and place both hands on the floor between your feet. Jump your feet back into the top of a press-up and lower your chest to the ground (A). Straighten your arms and hop your feet forwards, before jumping into the air with hands on head (B)
