    work hard

    Hello again,

    I am searching for a phrasal verb that mean: "work as hard as possible", and although I am trying it very hard, it goes beyond my knowledge. Would you be kind enough to lend me a hand?

    Thank you

    Re: work hard

    There is the expression " to put one's shoulder to the wheel" which means "to start to work extremely hard", that comes to mind.

    Strictly speaking, however; its not a phrasal verb. To "buckle down" and get to work might qualify. But, I am not as satisfied as I would like to be with that suggestion either. Perhaps others will join in?

    you could 'give your all' or 'give 100%'.
