Quick and effective metabolism boosting exercises for both gym and home!!

Hi, hope everyone's having a great week so far !!!

I have been brainstorming ways to shorten my daily workouts from over an hour to just under 45 minutes or 45min max!! I know a lot of people struggle with finding time to exercise and ensure that the workouts they're doing will be effective in terms of increasing energy levels, strength and building lean muscle while losing fat a/k/a boosting their metabolism!!

I have been focusing lately on finding a solution for this and finding workouts that can be done in 45minutes and under by combining some great exercises that focus on various components of fitness all at once. I picked some of my favorite exercises to share with you guys :) 
Of course, there are modifications but I was only able to capture a few shots and videos for now... Note that I always start with a good warmup whether it's a sprints on the treadmill, hiit on the stepmill, skipping rope, sled push or plate drags, or even jumping jacks.. the warmup is usually under 10minutes and is dynamic.. my goal is to get my heart rate up and get blood pumping and oxygen to the lungs ;)

I will usually do 4-5 rounds 12-15 reps of the following exercises with 45-60sec rest between sets:
1) Bulgarian Split Squat (targets glutes, hamstrings, quads)









2) BOSU burpees (with or without the pushup: works chest/core/cardio)
3) Wide grip pullup (use assistance if needed: works back/biceps)

4) Bench Jumps (great for getting the heart rate up/conditioning/core/shoulder strength)

AT HOME EXERCISES THAT ARE SIMILAR TO WHAT I POSTED ABOVE:
