Short, Fast & Deadly Circuit 2

 

Get comfortable with feeling uncomfortable (for 20 short minutes), because our HIIT circuits are here to stay! This week we incorporate our favourite piece of equipment - our trusty skipping rope! 

Why skipping? Does anyone remember doing Jump Rope for Heart way back in primary school? The theory behind the skipping rope was:

  • Zero travel time
  • Minimal cost
  • No training or trainer required
  • Can be performed at any fitness level
  • Challenging cardiovascular workout but fun to do
  • Challenged children to outperform their previous time attempt

Resulting in the perfect workout! So now that we have covered the why, lets get onto the how. Try the following and let us know how you go. This circuit is a 5 minute on 30 second off style circuit.

Repeat the following 2 times (for a total of 20 minutes work, 2 minutes rest)

ROUND 1.

1 minute: jumping rope
1 minute: push ups
1 minute: jumping rope
1 minute: jump squats
1 minute: jumping rope

30 second rest

ROUND 2.

1 minute: mountain climbers
1 minute: jumping rope
1 minute: jump lunges
1 minute: jumping rope

So your workout would look like:

Round 2

Round 1

It is important to always stay hydrated before, during and post workout.
If you feel dizzy or require longer rest periods, this is fine.
Do this workout at your own pace.
