Western Works out: Full Body Circuit

Written by: Michael Nguyen

 

This workout was designed for folks who want to hit multiple muscles quickly within a short amount of time. It incorporates muscle resistance training and cardio at the same time through body weight exercises to minimize the need for equipment. You can do this in your office or at home! Perfect for students and professionals with only about an hour window for exercise in the day. Repetition numbers are only a guideline, do what you can when you can! The main goal of this workout is to keep moving as much as possible within a short amount of time.

Each round is to be done superset style  (in succession no breaks) until the round is completed! A light stretch/warmup before the workout is recommended as well as a longer thorough stretch/cooldown afterwards.

 

Workout:

  • Dips 10 reps (Use a lower bed/chair)
  • Push-ups 10 reps
  • Bicep planks 30 seconds-1 minute
  • Crunches 30 reps
  • Russian twists 20 reps
  • Leg raises 10 reps
  • Lunges 10 reps per leg
  • High Knees 30 seconds
  • Mountain Climbers 30 Seconds

Rest for 2-3 minutes. Keep moving around stretch or dance to keep blood flowing. Shorter rest periods result to more built in cardio throughout the workout!

Repeat circuit 2-3 more times depending on personal fitness levels and desire to sweat! Enjoy!
