Ummm, I don't particularly enjoy exercising. Admittedly, my greatest victory was getting my dog, Opie, because he forces me to get out and stay active. While cardio has helped to burn fat, I have been looking for a more targeted work-out that will help tone my core muscles.
Luckily for me, my uncle Barky is a tennis trainer and overall fitness champion. After discussing my pitfalls (hot cheetos, TV, general laziness), he convinced me to give this circuit a try. And...he delivered. The exercises change just enough that I remain entertained and it is just short enough to make me feel like I can actually see it to the end.
The goal here is to keep your heart rate up for a solid 15 minutes. It's up to you to select your exercises, just be sure to maintain a balance between upper body (3 exercises) and lower body (3 exercises) with 1 minute of jumping rope in between each. Check out the video to see my current favorites. Please be warned, I am certainly not a trained professional. For more precise guidance on how to use proper form and exercise safely, please research! I frequent shape magazine and bodybuilding.com for tips and new exercises.
