Jun 24, 2023

Can't get in the gym today? Working from home? Having to stay away for the night? - this 10 minute circuit is for you! 

Warm-up: Jog in place for 1 minute to get your heart rate up and your body ready for exercise.

Squat jumps: Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, and lower into a squat. Explosively jump up, and land back into a squat position. Do 10 reps.

Push-ups: Get into a plank position with your hands shoulder-width apart. Lower your body until your chest touches the floor, then push back up. Do 10 reps.

Lunges: Stand with your feet hip-width apart. Step forward with your right foot and lower your body until your right thigh is parallel to the floor. Push off with your right foot and return to the starting position. Repeat with your left foot. Do 10 reps on each side.

Plank: Get into a push-up position, but instead of lowering yourself down, hold your body in a straight line from head to heels. Hold for 30 seconds.

Bicycle crunches: Lie on your back with your hands behind your head. Lift your legs up, and bend them at a 90-degree angle. Bring your right elbow to your left knee, then switch to bring your left elbow to your right knee. Do 10 reps on each side.

Burpees: Start in a standing position, then lower yourself into a squat position and place your hands on the floor in front of you. Jump your feet back into a plank position, then jump your feet back up to your hands and jump up. Do 10 reps.

Tricep dips: Sit on the edge of a chair with your hands on the seat beside you. Lower your body until your arms form a 90-degree angle, then push back up. Do 10 reps.

High knees: Stand with your feet hip-width apart. Run in place, bringing your knees up to your chest as high as you can. Do this for 30 seconds.

Cool-down: Walk around and stretch your muscles for a few minutes to help prevent soreness and injury.

Remember to always listen to your body and modify any exercises as needed. You can repeat this circuit for a more intense workout, or combine it with other workouts for a longer session.
