Over the last few weeks my daughter has been busy providing you all with entertaining and hopefully life-changing recipes, clean living ideas and most recently, a little glimpse into a day in her life. Whilst this was happening I, mum, took time out doing dreary mundane paper work….certainly not of the creative nature.. Though I am back!
My first post back is an ideal circuit-style workout for men, women, young and old.
It is designed to travel and other than yourself, all you need is a skipping rope (and even that can be removed)!! Hotel rooms, parks, indoors, at home or the office gym; this can be done basically anywhere that has a little empty space with access to a ledge, stairs or sturdy box.
As I have many clients who need to travel for work purposes, I am often asked what they can do in lieu of their normal gym training session. This easy-to-follow 8-station circuit is a great solution!
Whether or not you are a member of a gym, or new to organised exercise, this is a wonderful way to build both your strength and fitness.
HOW IT WORKS
Depending on your time frame, aim to repeat the circuit 3 times through. Rest preferably in between each FULLY COMPLETED circuit.
OR, if time poor, cut the circuit into 4 or 5 stations of your choice but still aim for 3 repeats.
The video explains the main technique points and, if fairly new to exercise, then allow yourself 15 second rest time between stations.
Circuits are fun, easy to complete and very rewarding as you increase the work time and repetitions whilst decreasing rest time…
Have fun and keep on keeping fit.
