Home Workout - 30 Minute Circuit 🔥
Here’s a 30 minute circuit and it’s perfect for the outdoors 😊
The circuit is performed in a block format with exercises grouped together. I normally use a medicine ball & a small Pilates ball. For the purpose of this video, I’m showing you how you can use a football & pillow to improvise. The Pilates ball is also shown. I use this a lot in training - it’s a 12cm ball & I purchased online from McSport.

🔹Keep your core engaged throughout
🔹Posture - think shoulder blades down & back
🔹Lunges - If you don't have a lot of strength and stability in your hips or knees, start out taking it easy with lunges. While you generally want your knees to be at a 90-degree angle in a deep lunge. You may need to do more shallow lunges until you build up your strength.
🔹On the adductor squeezes, squeeze tight, hold & release. This is a great one for working those inner thigh muscles.
🔹 Bird Dog - if your core feels weak, tap foot down instead of extending the leg out.
🔹 Donkey Kicks - squeeze ball tight by pressing calf into the ball. This is a great one for your hamstrings & glutes.
🔹 Russian Twists - adapt by leaving feet on the ground.
🔹 Mountain climbers - the ball creates a very unstable base so leave out if too difficult.
🔹 Push Ups - perform on your knees & make sure that the hand on the medicine ball is stable before lowering into the descent. Squeeze abs & glutes tight in this movement.
