Circuits


I have recently been asked what type of Circuits I do. Here are a couple of the ones I do and love. There are days that I switch out Elliptical for Treadmill. You could easily run in place or do anything cardio in it's place. The goal is to get your heart rate up. You could also modify the workout to do at home w/o gym equipment.

**Most days I add a little extra floor stuff before my cool down. I do leg lifts with a 15 lb weighted bar on my leg. I do bicycle crunches. I do planks. I do about 15 minutes worth. I have shin splints now so I add stretching at the end now with a foam roller.
