Workout Wednesday: Short Circuit!


workoutwednesday

Have little time to fit in running AND a strength workout?

Maximize time and perform this circuit routine for an quick, intense full body workout. While improving cardio, you will also increase the calorie burn, develop strength and enhance flexibility which all can contribute to faster and healthier running.

No need for fancy equipment since we will be using bodyweight. Buuuuut, you have to promise to work hard through the entire workout! 

Start with a 400 meter jog or run between each set of exercises. Do each exercise for 30 seconds. Progress up to 800 meter jog or run, and 60 seconds of each exercise.
