The video below features a “More than Core” home circuit training workout incorporating compound movements that engage the core muscles of the hips, back and abdomen into every single exercise. Unlike traditional lying-down core exercises, this workout is done from a standing position, thus targeting the muscles from a different angle. And, because the workout uses compound movements to engage lower body and upper body muscles simultaneously, it burns a lot of calories as a full body workout.
“More than Core” Home Circuit Training
Workout Video: Volume 1
Equipment Needed For This Home Circuit Training Workout is Minimal
Although some home circuit training workouts call for a variety of dumbbells and various other exercise equipment, this workout primarily uses your own body weight as resistance and so the only thing you need is a set of 1 to 3 pound dumbbells (if you are a beginner and don’t have dumbbells you can always use soup cans.)
30-Minute Fitter, Firmer, Faster Home Circuit Training Workout
If you’ve read my books you know I’m a big fan of 30-minute home circuit training workouts (this is because they are both fast and effective—plus I don’t have to get gussied up to go to a gym) The workout in the video above is 15 minutes long, but you can repeat it two times through (no resting!!) for a full 30 minute workout. As another alternative, you can begin your workout by doing 15 minutes of jogging or fast walking.
