Attack your lower body as well as your core and fat stores with this high-rep circuit.
What It Is:
A lower body and core burner that incorporates high rep counts for a challenging five rounds. This workout will be as tough as you wait it to be – beginners are encouraged to rest one minute between rounds, while advanced folks can opt for “active rest” with any number activities.
Why It Works:
Because you are not doing four no-nonsense exercises that deliver results. Squats and lunges will effectively hit the quads, glutes, and hamstrings; knee-to-elbow pushups promote core stability while also giving your chest, shoulders, and arms a little love; jumping jacks hit the head to toe for a dose of conditioning; the circuit format promotes fat burning.
Perform this routine as a circuit, doing 20 reps of each exercise or using a timer and doing as many controlled reps as possible on 30 seconds.
