My current iTunes Playlist (not all the songs are workouts songs, but I skip the slow ones when I’m getting my sweat on!)
Template #1 to workout with PURPOSE (feel free to change up the exercises!)

Rest 10 seconds between each exercise. Rest 1 minute after each round. Aim for 5-6 rounds
Template #2 to workout with PURPOSE
40 seconds STRONG strength exercise (think pull ups, deadlifts, row, squats)… something that you could do with a heavier weight, that use the major muscle groups
40 seconds STABILITY strength exercise (think exercises that require some stability, such as a 1 arm shoulder press, reverse lunge to balance). If the exercise is single sided, to 40 seconds of each side.
40 seconds MOBILITY strength exercise (think exercises that move you through the full range of motion but still require use of your muscles, such as MB wood chop, down dog to plank, walking lunge with a band pull apart).
10 seconds in between each exercise. Repeat for 3 rounds.
Pick 3 Groups of 3 exercises (each group takes 7 min 20 seconds).
Pick 2 exercises such as squats and push-ups.
Do 10 squats, 10 push-ups. Then 9 of each, 8 of each, etc.
