I’ve been really into circuits lately as my post workout cardio so I thought I’d give you guys a killer one that I made myself!
I do circuits when I can’t be bothered doing traditional cardio like the treadmill or elliptical. Circuits are a fun way to switch things up and there are so many variations! I love playing with circuits to see what gets me sweating! Plus a bonus is they don’t require any machines.
This circuit only requires a bench so it’s very easy to do at home, at a park, or in a gym! Make sure if you give it a try let me know what you think!
Here’s the circuit I’ve been loving lately!
- Ab in n outs x 15
- Vertical bench hops x 15
- Step ups x 15
- Glute kick backs x 15
- Jump squats x 20
- Push-ups x 15
- Burpees x 15
- Tricep dips x 20
- Toe taps for 30 seconds
- Mountain climbers for 30 seconds
Try your best to go without breaks from exercise to exercise (example go from burpees IMMEDIATELY to tricep dips, ect) and rest only after you make it through the whole circuit (after you’ve finished your mountain climbers.) If you absolutely need a breather of course take one! Once you’ve completed the entire thing THEN rest, grab water, and start again until you’ve completed 3-4 rounds (depending on your fitness level.) 💪🏻
Here’s a tiny snippet from the circuit, this was my fifth round (took me a while to get a decent angle) at the end of shoulder day so don’t mind my face (it was also a sweltering 30 degrees so hence the hot mess express…)
Have fun and get sweaty friends! 💦
