Circuit training at home

Exercise in the garden with my toddler

On Sunday I couldn't get to the gym as I had to be at a family bbq, so I decided to do circuits in the garden.

I did 3 short HIT circuits focussing on different body areas - 1 hour

Remember to warm up. Do each circuit 3-4 times with a min rest between each circuit...

1. Chest focussed

Lying chest flyes x 20

          

Press ups (do them on your knees if you can't do them on your toes) x 20

     

Jumping squats x 20

     

Sprints (as many as you can)

  

Rest for a minute and repeat

2. Abs focussed

Crunches x 20

     

Pike roll out x 25

          

Plank (or use fit ball, see alternative pic below) x 30 seconds or 20 roll outs on the fit ball

          

Jumping lunges x 20

     

Skipping (for as long and as fast as you can)

 

Rest for a minute and repeat

3. Legs focussed (if you want to you can add high energy exercises in, e.g. Jump burpees, jog on the spot with high knees)

Squat, abductors x 20 (my little girl demonstrates below :))

          

Squat, glute kick backs x 20

     

Repeat on other leg

Rest and repeat
