This workout was designed for a client with a few extra pounds of body fat to shed, a weak core, and looking to “tone up.” These mini circuits are meant to be performed quickly to keep the heart rate up. The goal is to strength train while burning through calories.
Warm-up: 10 minutes on a piece of cardio equipment. For this, I like an elliptical that moves your arms to get all your limbs nice and warm. Try to get up to at least 80% max heart rate before slowing down. This is just to get your heart in a working zone before the circuits and will help keep it there throughout the course of the workout.
*Complete circuit 3 times through then take a quick break. This first circuit can all be done off a weightlifting bench or aerobic steps stacked high.
*Complete circuit 3 times through
15 minute sprints on a cardio machine of your choosing.
When finished, wipe the sweat from your forehead and stretch everything out for a good 5-10 minutes :)
