Workout of the Week
Cardio & Abs

Instructions: Find a space that is clear in front, behind, and to each side of you to avoid injury. Perform a warm-up that consists of an activity that increases your heart rate and moves your joints through a moderate to large range of motion such as the one below. Perform each exercise in the warm-up for 45 seconds.

Workout: Each circuit is to be completed in 3 sets. Complete set 1, 2, and 3 for circuit 1 and then move to circuit 2 and complete the same sets (1, 2, and 3) before beginning your cool-down.

Set 1: Perform each exercise for 45 seconds with minimal rest between exercises. Rest 1 minute.
Set 2: Perform each exercise for 30 seconds with minimal rest between exercises. Rest 1 minute.
Set 3: Perform each exercise for 15 seconds with minimal rest between exercises. Rest 1 minute.

Begin circuit 2 by performing the same 3 sets above. Once completed begin your cool-down.

Perform a cool-down that allows for your heart rate to gradually slow down to a normal rate and hold static stretches such as the ones below for 20-30 seconds each. It is encouraged that you modify each exercise to a version that is best for you.
