Fitness in a Box

  • by

Can’t get to the gym and don’t believe you have the space or apparatus required at home for a workout? Think again. I have annihilated many a client in an area the equivalent to the size of your closet floor. That’s not to say you should literally attempt your workout in a cupboard. But if you are in tight quarters, I have outlined a fat-busting circuit idea that will work your entire body and get your heart pumping, requiring absolutely zero equipment. And you’ll be all done in less than 30 minutes! What I love about circuits is that the high intensity nature of the workout allows you to cram a lot of exercise volume within a short amount of time, not to mention the tremendous quantity of calories burned.

How to do it: Perform each exercise for one minute, and repeat the cycle three times. Take a 10-20 second break between each exercise, and a 60-90 second break at the end of each circuit, as required. And remember to warm up first, and then safely cool down and stretch afterwards. Here’s the line-up:

  1. Squats
  2. Jumping jacks
  3. Push-ups
  4. Lunges
  5. Superman
  6. Burpees
  7. Crunches

Please note, the circuit outlined above is for those in good health and with no injuries. Most exercises can, however, be modified according to your health issues. As with all exercise programs, consult with a physician before participating in physical activity. And feel free to add your comments to this blog, along with any questions. I’ll be happy to help!
