Power Circuit

Running short of time? Can't get to the gym? Find an outdoor area with a step and try this 20 minute power circuit to inject some movement and energy into your day.

Complete the following exercises for 1 minute each then repeat the circuit twice:

Push ups
Lunge (one leg then the other)
Triceps dips
Step ups
Sit ups
Shuttle run
Reverse Crunch
Star Jumps
Prone Hold

If one minute feels too long to begin with complete for 30 seconds then change exercise - repeat this circuit four times.

Work hard and enjoy!!!!

If you have recently had a baby it is wise to wait until after your six week check up before beginning an exercise program of higher intensity. Be aware of your own limitations especially where jumping is concerned.
