    word to substitute all out

    I am going all out to win the medal.

    Is the any word or phrase to substitute all out but to mean the same?

    Re: word to substitute all out

    There are various ways of doing it, not necessarily involving a 1-for-1 swap: I am doing my best to win the medal/I am doing my utmost.../I am doing my damnedest ...(two syllables informal)/ I am doing all I can...I am going for the medal eyeballs out' (informal: 'eyeballs out'= trying very hard, especially in sport)... And there are more ornate ways of emphasizing the effort, such as 'I am leaving no stone unturned...'

    Sometimes people say they are giving it their all. Sometimes they even say they are giving 110 percent.

    I am putting my heart and soul into it.
    I'm giving it everything I've got.
