I like to keep things simple with my workouts. This workout includes 3 main exercises as well as 3 exercises for the warm-up. The workout is done in circuit fashion which you will find is my favorite. A circuit means that you do one set of each exercise with no rest, and then repeat that for the specified amount of sets. Circuit training is not only a great strength training workout. It’s been shown to increase aerobic capacity as well.

That’s not to say to skimp on your aerobic work. I recommend 3 days a week of a 15-20 minute jog, or you can follow one of my many cardio workouts. The cardio type exercises such as Running in Place, and Jumping Jacks are measured by a scale of 0-10 with 0 being absolutely no effort, and 10 being the most that you can do.
