From time to time I like to include some sample workouts for you to try on your own and today I have included a quick circuit program for those of you who are looking for a workout that doesn’t take too much time and will help you get toned and lose weight. It is quite simple, 4 exercises for 30 seconds each in succession with 10 seconds of rest in between. You can go for the suggested 8 rounds or as many as you have time for.
- Pull ups
- Push ups
- Front plank
Complete 1 round only resting 10 seconds between exercises; this should give you just enough time to transition to the next exercise. Rest for 30 seconds at the end of each complete circuit, then begin again. Complete 8 rounds for a quick circuit program that targets the upper body, core and cardio.
The goal with this style of program is to continually push yourself. If you can, keep track of how many reps you get out of each exercise per round. Try to out do yourself each time; going for 1 rep more each time. You will see better results the more you challenge and push yourself.
Don’t forget to drink plenty of water before and after your workouts and to eat a balanced diet full of fresh foods daily to keep you fueled for each workout.
