You Don't Need Any Equipment For This At-Home Workout, So Gym Problem Solved

Pop Sugar 2019-05-11 17:08:08

I love bodyweight workouts; they're just so darn convenient. You can do them at home, and you don't need any equipment, which makes them practically excuse-proof. For this at-home workout, all you need to supply is a little motivation; once you get started, the momentum of the moves will pull you through. Plus, we've added a 60-second cardio burst to each circuit to increase the fat-burning potential of this sweat session. It's kind of like getting two workouts in one!

Whether you are new to working out or have been at it for a good long while, this workout is for you. For beginners, do fewer rounds of each circuit and keep the cardio burst to 45 seconds; you can also take longer rests between rounds if needed. For intermediate/advanced, do four rounds of each circuit, keep the cardio bursts to 60 seconds, and keep your recovery periods to a minute each.
