Plyos, Push Ups and Planks

Hey all!  I hope your Wednesday is treating you well.  I mentioned earlier this week that I’ve been switching up my workouts and wanted to take a moment to share one of the circuits that I added to my rotation.  I wanted a full body work out but I wanted it heavy on leg plyometrics.  This is a timed circuit which makes it good for beginners.  Don’t worry about how many you do, just do as many good form reps for each minute.  Try to beat yourself the next time you do the circuit.  However, since it’s plyometrics, if you’re a beginner don’t do this workout more than once a week.  I would actually suggest treating it like a hard sprint workout and do it every other week. 

As always, consult your physician before making any changes to your fitness routine.
