Busy Mom’s quick Circuit Training Workout

Like anyone else, by the time I get home from work, make dinner, put the kid to bed, it’s dificult to find the time to fit a workout in.  SO I have developed a plan from my younger days when I worked as a personal trainer. It’s a quick circuit training plan that doesn’t take very long at all. Yes, i have many days where i spend a lot of time in the gym, get a good weight training session in, and cardio…but then there are also the days where I only have 20 minutes, and rather than sit on the couch, i like to do this little circuit!

You will need:

1 skipping rope

exercise mat

2 dumbells (whatever you are comfortable with – I use 12lbs)

workout attire & shoes

The Circuit:

12 reps of chest flys with the weights, whie lying on your mat

jump rope for 30 seconds

12 back rows with weights, using a resistance ball for support if you have one, or you can use a chair

jump rope for 45 seconds

12 stationary lunges, with weights,  alternating legs

jump rope for 45 seconds

*Repaeat this cycle 3 times for a quick workout on the days you don’t have the time to spend traveling to the gym, working out, travelling back home.

It’s a great quick circuit to help squeeze in a workout whenever you can
