QUICK CIRCUIT

Exercise- requires determination, energy, and TIME.

Maintaining full-time employment, family, and a home are challenging. Now, add in responsibilities and extracurriculars and you're active until your head hits your pillow. How do we find the time for fitness? For my well-being- mind, body, and soul- fitness is essential. But, I don't need 1.5 hours to commit to a high calorie burning, muscle strengthening program. Circuit training works wonders for me (thanks Adam) and is easy to mix-up for challenging workouts. A while back I began a fitness series and many have asked for more. Here's my favorite, go-to quick circuit.
Try to rest as little as possible between exercises. If you do the minimum of 7 reps for 7 rounds that's a total of 49 reps of each exercise. Look at you've accomplished. I typically complete this circuit in 30-40 minutes. If I'm really pressed for time I can just remove one exercise to be under 30 minutes.

How do I determine my workouts? It's easy. I take knowledge I've gained over time and use fitness sites to gather exercise ideas. I don't know that I have ever followed a WOD (workout of the day) suggested by a fitness site. I always alter it to best fit my skills and needs. For this circuit, I often substitute Burpees for Pushups if I have more time to devote to the workout.

Push yourself, but you know your body better than anyone else.

Stay strong!
