IN YOUR BACKYARD
The pro trainers workout: Body-weight circuit
Torch fat with this routine from Turbulence Training developer Craig Ballantyne, C.S.C.S.
Perform these exercises as a circuit. Rest for one minute only after completing all four. Goal: Complete 5 circuits.
1. Jumping jacks (60 seconds)
2. Spider-man pushups (until failure)
As you lower your body, swing your right leg out to touch your right knee to your right elbow. Reverse the movement and push up. Alternate sides.
3. Reverse lunge (15 reps per leg)
Stand tall, hands behind your ears. Step back with one leg, and lower your body until your front knee is bent 90 degrees. Pause. Push up quickly. Do all reps, then switch legs.
4. Squat thrust (8 reps)
Squat, put your hands on the floor, and kick your legs into pushup position. Quickly reverse the move. Repeat.
Make it harder: Rest 30 seconds (instead of 1 minute) between circuits.
I am going to start the In Your Backyard routine today!
