How to use this routine
Focus on the motions of each move and execute them with intention; maintain control and keep your core tight.
There is no warm-up or cool-down within this particular workout, so you will need to either do it independently or choose one of our warm-ups or cool-downs from the exercise library.
- Each exercise will be done for 50 seconds with a 10-second rest/ transition between each move. Do this circuit 1 time.
- If you’re just getting your “exercise” feet wet and are a workout novice, cut back on the duration and double the workout. Each exercise will be done for 25 seconds with a 10-second rest/ transition between each move. Do this circuit 2 times.
- You can download “Seconds Pro,” an interval timer app that takes the mental math out of your timed workouts and allows you to fully focus on your form.
