Some Basic Guidelines

In lieu of going to the gym, complete this circuit about four times per week. Each exercise should be done back to back, with each set coming right after the other. After you’ve done all six exercises, take a minute-long break, and head back to the beginning. In total, you should work your way through the whole circuit three times.

Exercise #1: 12 x Squat Thrust Push Up Plank

Get into a squat position and  thrust your legs to finish in a pushup position, hold for a second, and then lower yourself until you end up in a plank position. Hold for a second again. Then return to squatting position. Repeat 12 times to complete the set.

Exercise #2: 10 x Carioca Drill

With your feet about shoulder width apart, quickly cross your left foot in front of your right, then twist your hips and kick your right foot up behind you. Do the same with your right foot crossed over your left. Repeat ten times. This should be at a brisk speed, much like running in place.
