With summer coming along, are you finding less time and even less motivation to exercise? Yes, this is the time to go on those summer vacations and let loose, but that doesn’t mean you should let up completely on exercise. So to make things easier, we came up with a 3 minute circuit that’s quick, effective and covers more than a few of the 7 Basic Movements. And the best part? No gym necessary.
Here’s the video below:
Try this out, rest for a minute and repeat 3-4 times.
10 Burpees (movement: push, squat) – Squat down to all fours, post up on your arms, extend your legs outward, retract them back in, stand and jump up.
1-2-3-4-5 Push Ups (movement: push) – One push up, then plank for 2 seconds, two push ups, then plank for another 2 seconds, repeat up til 5 push ups.
20 Cross V-Sits (movement: bend, twist) – Starting from a supine position with legs and arms stretched out, raise one leg and meet its foot or ankle by curling up, rotating slightly and raising the opposite arm. Alternate from side to side to perform the cross V-sits.
20 Bridges (movement: bend, twist) - Lying on your back, keep your legs bent. Then simultaneously raise your hips as you bridge up and turn to the side using your upper left or right side of your back as the pivot point. Alternate from side to side and you can even use your arms to help balance and reach further. Try 20 of these (10 on each side) to get a good posterior core workout.
