Total Body #1

I find total body circuit workouts to be the most efficient way to workout- you get strength and cardio at the same time. You will work all the major muscle groups in this circuit which will be a great calorie burner. These workouts are also boredom busters- no move lasts more than about 1 minute. The total circuit takes about 10 min.; although it may take a few minutes longer at first until you get the routine down. As you progress I recommend going through the circuit 3 times for best results. Now get busy!
