2020: We’re Almost Through

Can you believe 2020 is nearing its end? It’s been far different than any other year, but we’re pushing through it together. Let’s stay on track with our workouts throughout the upcoming Holidays, getting closer to our fitness goals and growing stronger mentally so we’re able to face any challenge that may come our way.


Exercise of the Month:
Fat Burning Strength and Cardio Circuit
 
As you enjoy this season with your loved ones (and maybe indulge in your favorite treats a bit more than normal), try out this fat burning cardio workout to keep your exercise goals on track. You’ll need dumbbells, a step or bench, an exercise ball, and a mat. If you’ve got a weight lifting bar, you can put that to good use as well (though dumbbells will be just fine if you don’t).

Begin by warming up with 5-10 minutes of light cardio. Then, work through the movements explained below for 1-2 circuits, taking breaks when you need them. Try to use challenging weights, and keep moving the entire time! Even when you’re tired, keep those legs going by walking in place.
Circuit One
  • Step-Ups
  • Split Squats
  • Plank Knee Press on Exercise Ball
  • 3 Minutes Cardio (High Intensity)

Circuit Two
  • Ball Push Ups
  • Squat Overhead Press
  • Ball Crunches
  • 3 Minutes Cardio (High Intensity)

Circuit Three
  • Deadlifts (Bent Knee)
  • Barbell Rows
  • Ball Pikes
  • 3 Minutes Cardio (High Intensity)

Circuit Four
  • Incline Bicep Curls
  • Tricep Dips
  • Knee Tucks
  • 3 Minutes Cardio (High Intensity)
Have fun with this workout and push yourself to reach your goals! For more information on these circuits, as well as tutorials for each specific exercise, click here.
