You had fun last night, no matter what you did. Maybe you went out with friends, had a romantic dinner or watched a good movie, but you surely relieved your stress that built up all week and reconnected your close relationships. That’s all good, but if you are like me, you may have reconnected with a few extra calories too. Well, use this 20-minute circuit workout to cash in a few calories today. Remember, you continue to burn calories even after your workout is over!canvas

Perform each exercise for 90 seconds.

Finish all of the exercises, take a one-minute break, and then repeat.

If you are using a heavy weight to build muscle, move at a slower pace. If you are using a lighter weight, you may go at a faster pace to build endurance.

When you finish this workout, post your time below. Next time you come back to the site, you will be able to reference it.

Upright Row Squat

A great full body warm up exercise. I mean, if you stopped here, your body would still appreciate the effort.

Muscles Worked: Shoulders, triceps, biceps, quadriceps, glutes, hamstrings.

Side Seated Leg Lift

A quad (thigh) muscle burner.

Muscles Worked: Glutes, hamstrings.

Push Up

Slightly different from the push up. Decline push ups work more of your lower pectorals (chest).

Muscles Worked: Pectorals, triceps, biceps, shoulders.

Reverse Crunch

Want to work your lower ab muscles? This is the one. Difficult, but worth it.

Muscles Worked: Abs, lower back.

Curl and Delts

Biceps and anterior deltoids (front shoulder muscles). Knock out two groups with one exercise.

Muscles Worked: Biceps, shoulders, trapezius, core muscles.

Don’t forget to repeat the circuit!
