I’ve mentioned before that I am a gym girl. I love the visual break in my day – to go somewhere different, tune out and do my thing. BUT there are days when motivation is lacking or (out here in these here country parts) the hefty drive to the gym is uber unappealing, I scroll through my *screenshots and do a home circuit. These are fantastic little collections of various exercises that incorporate cardio training, resistance work, HIIT and intense-o toning. These little babies will get your heart racing and your sweat glistening before you can say ‘burpee’.
As part of my ‘move~ing’ challenge I am encouraging myself to do 30mins daily of anything and everything – always respecting and honouring my body’s needs on any given day. These home circuits are a great way to beat the excuses down to a pulp when you have a case of the ‘I don’t have time for the gym’ or ‘they don’t have a class I like so I’ll just go tomorrow’ or ‘It’ll be too busy now and I won’t even get a machine’s.
So the following ‘hit list’ is a series of my go to moves when I’m time poor but calorie burn cravin’ rich. Print them off and store them in your wallet for a rainy day, or take a photo and start creating your digital workout library. These are just suggested goodens that I have come across but, by all means, create your own little list! Aim for at least 15-20mins, get the heart rate up (ie. incorporate jumps, exercises with arms raising up above the head, sprints etc), target a range of areas and vary enough to keep you interested:
What are your sure fire ways to get your blood flowin’ and exercise endorphins pumping at home?

*Bonus tip – in this day and age I no longer write down my workout plans on post-its or torn bits of paper (yes I have been known to do so in the past), I screenshot them to my phone and keep a little portfolio of workout sessions on hand. Awesome! And super useful if you’re trying to take the ‘guess work’ out of your training and just want to not think, switch off and get it done!
