A change of season is a great time for establishing new habits and routines, so why not try this do-it-anywhere circuit? It’s the perfect exercise for busy schedules. You can do as much or as little as you like, making it easy to fit a quick session into your daily routine. Best of all, our Quick Blast Body Weight Circuits require zero special equipment. So, grab your water bottle and let’s get started!

 

Perform each exercise for 45-60 seconds and don’t rest in between each. Once a whole circuit is complete (all five exercises), rest for two minutes and repeat.

 

Backward lunge with oblique reach

Good for: core, legs, glutes, obliques

  • Stand feet together, arms overhead
  • Step your right foot back, into a deep lunge
  • Reach down with your left arm, feeling a right oblique stretch
  • Bring your arm back as you return to stand, then repeat on the other side

 

Rocking plank with front and side reach

Good for: whole body, balance

  • Start out in plank position, elbows on the floor, tummy pulled in
  • Shift your weight to your left arm while lifting your right arm level with your face and reaching forward—at the same time, activate your calf muscle by pushing from the balls of your feet
  • Return your right arm to the starting position and repeat, this time extending your right arm out to the side
  • Return and work the opposite side

 

Prisoner squat holds

Good for: lower body

  • Place feet a little wider than shoulder-width, align hips over knees and knees over ankles
  • Open your chest by gently resting your hands behind your head
  • Squat as deeply as you comfortably can, keeping your upper body upright
  • Maintain the position with core engaged and body weight in your heels for as long as you can (60 seconds is a great goal) before pushing back up from the heels

 

Spider push-up

Good for: whole body, chest, back and core

  • Come into a straight-arms plank
  • Lower your torso and as your elbows bend to the sides, bring left knee towards your left elbow
  • Straighten arms to full plank; return left foot
Repeat on right side
