#WorkoutWednesday: Circuit Training

Hello to another Wednesday!

In the midst of midterms, papers, and projects, sometimes spending an hour or so in the gym adds more stress than good. However, rather than not workout at all, I do a 30 minute at-home circuit instead! That way, I don’t feel guilty for missing a workout out, and I still have ample time to focus on work. Check it out below!

Complete each exercise continuously after one another. Rest 2-3 minutes (adjust to your needs) between sets. Complete 6 rounds.

  1. 15 squat to oblique crunches
  2. 10 lateral raises
  3. 10 lunges to shoulder presses
  4. 12 plank shoulder taps
  5. 10 burpees
  6. 15 sit-ups
  7. 10 push-ups

What’s your favorite low-on-time workout?

#Workout Wednesday: Stair Intervals

Happy Wednesday All!

I figured I would switch it up and squeeze in a quick 30 minute interval training session (on the stairmaster stepmill) between my classes instead of going for a run. Here’s what you do:

5 minute warm-up (easy level)

2 minutes on, 3 minutes off (4 Rounds Total)

  • The 2 minute period is your working interval. Pick a moderately challenging level and climb some stairs! (I kick it up to level 15-18 to increase my heart beat.)
  • The 3 minute period is your rest time. I usually decrease my working level by  3-5 levels depending on how I am feeling!
  • Repeat until you hit 25 minutes on the clock!

5 minute cool-down (easy level)

And that’s it!

What’s your favorite way to burn calories when you are short on time?
