I love to incorporate one day of cardio into my workout schedule for the week, however sometimes I want to sweat and get my heart rate up but I don’t want to go for a run, do sprints, cycle etc so I like to use circuits. These are a great way to incorporate some cardio and get yourself sweaty and out of breath without having to stay on a particular machine for a long period of time or if you don’t enjoy or feel like doing “regular” cardio.
This circuit is great because you only complete each exercise 4 times in total which I find makes the time fly by!
It requires minimal equipment and if you don’t have a certain piece of equipment just swap the exercise for an alternative one!
Work Hard and Enjoy!
The circuit is composed of 10 exercises.
You complete each exercise in the circuit once for 45 seconds and then rest for 15 seconds.
You then repeat the circuit 4 times with no break in between rounds (It takes 40 minutes in total).
** Note you can screen shot the workout so you have it with you to follow!
I use a free timer app on my iPhone that I set for 45 seconds work and 15 seconds rest so I don’t have to keep my eye on the clock.
