Quote of the Day: “Aim for progress, not perfection.”
When I first started working out, I had no clue what to do. I would step foot in the gym, but not really do anything except run on the treadmill or do the elliptical. My mom then advised me with some easy, quick, and effective workouts to do to gain some strength and work my whole body. She told me to pick exercises that target your legs, arms, core, and heart and create a circuit out of it. So I did that. Ever since then, I would create random circuits that were really effective.
Today, I’m going to share an example of a circuit that I would incorporate to my workout. It’s easy. It’s effective. And it’s quick! The workout consists of four exercises and you repeat the circuit three times.
Exercise 1: Squat with dumbbell push press (10 reps)
Exercise 2: Push-up (15 reps)
Exercise 3: Glute Bridge Raises? (10 reps each side)
Exercise 4: Forearm Plank (1 minute)
If you’re thinking “you didn’t do any exercise that targets your heart” you are right, but honestly the whole workout gets my heart rate going. If you want to add a minute of jumping jacks, go for it. If you want to add a mile at the end of each round, go you! Literally you can do whatever you want and whatever feels best for you. That’s what’s so great about working out.
Let me know if you try out this quick circuit! Stay tuned for more.
