Short on time but need to burn some calories and tone up? No worries! I have you covered with this awesome workout that works multiple muscle groups in each exercise. Try to complete this circuit three times through:
Plank with Alternating Leg Raises
~Get into a normal plank position, remember to keep your hips down and core tight. Slowly raise your right leg up about ___ inches pause for a second at the top and return to starting position. Repeat the same with your left leg. This is one rep. Complete 10-15 reps depending on your fitness level.
Lunge with a Shoulder Press
~Step forward into a lunge position, making sure your knee stays behind your toe on the front leg. Place your arms in goal post position, arms parallel to the floor. Lower down about an inch or two from the floor. As you are lowering down, extend your arms overhead, palms facing forward. As you rise up, return your arms to the start posistion. Repeat for 15 reps and then switch legs.
Burpees with a Jump
~Get ready to rev up your cardio and hit every muscle with the one move! Start with feet hip width apart and lower down into a squat. Place your hands on the floor, then jump your feet back into push-up position. Jump your feet back to the lowered squat position, jump straight up in the air and land softly. This is one rep. Complete 10…you can do it!
Deadlift with an Upright Row
~Start with your feet hip width apart (do not lock your knees). While holding a heavier weight in each hand, slowly lower down towards your shins, keeping your back flat and core tight. Take a pause at the bottom and slowly raise up. Once you are upright, leading with your elbows, pull the weights up. Your hands will stop around your chest then slowly lower back to the start position. This should be a fluid movement. Complete 20 reps.
Chest Fly with a Leg Drop
~Lying flat on your back with a mat underneath you, grab a pair of weights (I suggest 5-15 lbs depending on your fitness level). Raise your legs straight in the air and your arms straight up in the air too. At the same time, slowly lower your legs until they are three inches from the floor while simultaneously opening your arms into a chest fly. Slowly raise your legs and close your arms together. This is one rep, repeat for 20.
