Something to Do

Here is a great workout that can be done within an hour! Do it at the gym, at your home, with a partner, without a partner, however you want! Just get out and do it :)

Danielle created this workout and we did it in a tabata-style circuit, 20sec activity, 10sec rest, switching the circuit exercise for a total for 4 minutes. We both agreed something a little longer would be nice, so try kicking it up to 45sec activity and 15sec rest!

  • Circuit 1; Cardio: Step, Strength: Bicep Curls
  • Circuit 2: Cardio: Tick-Tock with rubber ankle band (leaping back and forth kicking your legs out), Strength: Triceps (dips, kick backs, extensions)
