The Simple Circuit

Let’s face it sometimes it’s just too hard to get to the gym. For most of us our weekdays are hectic enough just getting to the office and, not to mention making that extra drive to the gym. That is exactly why I created this circuit. It requires absolutely no equipment, minimal space and can be done indoors or out. Another perk - it can be completed in less than 30 minutes!

This circuit is also your Workout To-Go…perfect for vacation, work travel, or something to break-up a long day at the office.

Step 1: Warm Up! Stretch fully! If you have more than 30 minutes add a extra jog around the block.

Step 2: The Circuit. Complete 3 rotations. Take a break between each rotation to drink some water and bring your heart rate back to resting.

  1. Plank- hold 30 sec-1min 

  2. Alternating lunges- hands on head, 20 reps

  3. Plank with alternating arm raises- 20 reps

  4. Hands on head squat- 10-15 reps (truly performed in our backyard as you can see our landlord's dog Watson)

  5. Plank with alternating leg raises- 20 reps

  6. Push-ups- 10-15 reps

  7. Jumping Jacks- 30-50 reps

Step 3: If you have extra time complete one more jog around the block. Always end with a few good full body stretches!

Remember you can always FIND A WAY, EVERYDAY! No excuses! Now get outside and enjoy some of this lovely summer weather J.
