Workout Wednesday Quick Cardio Exercise Circuit

Posted Jun 08 2011 10:27pm

Hello everyone! What a day it’s been! I am looking forward to a good night’s sleep tonight because I’m still dragging a bit from staying out past 11. No, I’m not 80 years old, why do you ask?

I’m so glad that I fooled so many of you into thinking that I am a Fashionista with my awesome new dress. If I can fool you several more times then maybe I’ll add a fashion category to ‘Fitness Health and Food’. Just maybe…

It is Wednesday and you know what happens on Wednesdays – I design an awesome new workout for you! As I’ve been sharing a lot of strength training workouts lately, I put together a quick cardio circuit that will boost your fitness anytime, anywhere.

Quick Cardio Exercise Circuit Directions

  • Be sure to warm up prior to performing this workout in order to prevent injury and maximize results.
  • This workout includes two exercises that require one item that provides resistance i.e. a dumb bell, water bottle, or can.
  • Perform each exercise for 1 minute. Rest for 1 minute after each circuit.
  • Perform one, two, or three rounds of this circuit.
  • Feel free to modify the exercises as needed for your body.
  • If any move hurts, do not do it.
  • If you feel the need to take a break or stop, please do so. Your health and safety are most important.
