No I’m not talking about eyesight. Although, after this workout you may not be able to see straight. Kidding. Ish. This is a fun little workout that will combine your strength and cardio sessions into a neat little compact workout that is under an hour. Here’s the real kicker, you will still get cardio as you do your strengthening circuits so you win! Now, you may not feel like it’s winning, but trust me, you are!
Keep this workout in your back pocket for when you are little crunched for time or you just want to mix things up a little. Enjoy!
*NOTE: you can do a separate 5-10 minute warm up if you have the time consisting of dynamic stretches and some light cardio moves. In a time crunch, take the first two exercises of circuit at an easy to moderate pace before jumping in full steam*
