Quick n' Fit Circuit

By: Snap Fitness

Sick of your standard cardio routine? If so, try this! The Quick n’ Fit circuit takes less than 20 minutes and works your entire body. 

 

If you're looking to tone up this summer, this type of workout is perfect for you. Circuit training is great because it incorporates high-intensity work in a short period of time. It keeps your heart rate elevated for the entire workout. Its benefits include weight loss, muscle gain, and added strength.

 

The only equipment you need today is a medicine ball.

 

Ready to get your sweat on?

 

Here’s your circuit:

 

Medicine ball burpees (one minute): Place medicine ball on the ground between your feet. Hold the ball while you jump back into a push-up position, then jump forward so your feet are on either side of the ball. Lift the ball into the air as you stand up, then jump!

 

Russian twists (one minute): Sit on the floor with your knees bent. Keep your torso upright and hold the medicine ball center. Move the ball while twisting left to right for one minute. Keep your back at a 45-degree angle!

 

Jump squats (one minute): Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart. Drop down to a regular squat, and jump up! When you come down, lower back down into a squat position.

 

Medicine ball plank (one minute): Hold a plank position with your hands placed on top of the medicine ball. Keep your back flat and don’t forget to breathe!

 

Toe tap soccer drill (one minute): Set the medicine ball in front of you and switch off tapping your left and right foot on top of it.

 

Rest (one minute)

 

Repeat exercises two more times.
