Quickie Holiday Workout

No time to get to the gym or to do your regular workout this weekend? After a 3-5 minute dynamic warmup, try this circuit:

Complete 12 reps (or 12 each side for #1 and #4.)

1. Prisoner Stationary Lunge
2. Pushups (Whatever you can do: Standard, Incline, Decline)
3. Lying Hamstring Ball Curl
4. Squat into a One Arm D.B. Shoulder Press
5. Bent Over 2 Arm D.B. Row
6. Stability Ball Jackknife

Rest 30-60 seconds and repeat up to 6 times. Each circuit will take approximately 3.5 minutes so do as many as time permits.

With a 3 minute warmup, 2 rounds with a 1 minute rest between them will only take about 11 minutes.

With the same amount of warmup and rest periods, you can complete 3 rounds in less than 17 minutes.

If you can go with less rest, you can finish even faster.

Have a safe, healthy holiday and please take a moment to remember those who gave the ultimate sacrifice in the service of our country.
