Living a busy lifestyle can make fitting in daily exercise tricky and not to mention expensive if you have a gym membership or attend fitness classes.

This is why I’ve created a quick fat-burning circuit that’s perfect for doing in the comfort of your own home with no gym pass necessary!

Before starting the circuit, remember to warm up with some stretches and a quick jog on the spot to get your heart rate up and loosen up the muscles.

  • 20 Jump Squats
  • 20 Mountain Climbers
  • 20 Burpees
  • 20 Shoulder Presses
  • 20 Walking Lunges

Complete all exercises back-to-back. Rest for 90 seconds after the circuit is complete. Repeat 3-6 times.

Here’s a quick how-to if any of these exercises are new to you:

Jump Squats - stand with your feet shoulder-width apart. Start by doing a squat, then engage your core to jump straight up. When you land, lower your body back into squat position.

Mountain climbers - start in push-up position. Raise your right knee toward your chest, then bring it back to start position. Repeat with the left knee, alternating between the two as if you're pedalling a bike.

Burpees - stand up straight. Bring your hands to the floor in line with your feet and jump to plank position. Jump your feet back to your hands and jump back up to start position.

Shoulder Presses - using two dumbbells, stand with your arms by your side. Keeping your core engaged, bend your elbows and bring your arms above your head so the weights almost touch. Slowly lower back to start position.

Walking Lunges - place your hands on your hips and step forward with your left leg. Lower hips toward the floor and bend both knees (almost at 90 degree angles). Push off with your right foot returning back to starting position. Repeat with right leg.

Enjoy!
