Thought this was for the novice athlete :O

I came across this circuit a while ago and thought that it was for newbies.  When I saw the section on walking lunges, I wanted something more challenging.  I decided to give it a try, going through the circuit three times, taking about a minute and a half rest between one complete circuit for water.

This circuit is a great body weight circuit, requiring no equipment and very little space.  If space is limited the only part that might need to be changed is the walking lunges, which could simply be changed to a basic lunge.  What I like about this circuit is that it is more cardio than anything.  I haven’t strapped on a heart rate monitor yet, but your heart rate is definitely getting up there.  It is nice to throw this in the cardio mix every once and a while.

I decided to give this circuit a try with some of my students and they did amazing.  They made it through the entire circuit three times.  The encouragement they provided for each other was incredible.  I wish I was able to video tape it.  And those walking lunges I thought were going to be way too easy……they definitely came in handy!  Even my students were yelling “break time!” during this part as it was the short period of time in the circuit where you could catch your breath!
