Work has been crazy busy over the last few weeks, which I have learnt is not an excuse not to workout. However, it does mean that I am not able to make it to many exercise classes- they either finish too late in the morning, or start too early after work. (Lunch break, what lunch break at the moment!?) I am not always the best at performing circuit or weights workouts outside of a class environment but I’m getting better.
I completed this workout last Wednesday, and my arms only stopped burning on Saturday! Those tricep dips get me every single time. After the Berlin marathon it is time I focus on getting functionally fit, working on strengthening and toning, as well as my cardio fitness rather than just my endurance!
I started out with a 10min warm up on the crosstrainer before completing this workout. I love that it doesn’t need a lot of equipment – if you’re doing this at home just use a weight/2L waterbottle for the medicine ball squats, or swap them for a burpee if you don’t have any weights. I used a 9kg medicine ball, but choose whichever weight is best for you- it should be challenging but not so heavy you’ll drop it!
Here are some links to a few of the exercises if you’re not sure what they are;
I’m going to be sharing more of my quick workouts over the next few weeks- do you have any sites/inspiration that you’d recommend?
