The upper body circuit

Spend 15 seconds per move in the first set, 30 seconds per move in the second set and 45 seconds per move in your third set for both the upper and lower body circuits.

1.    Plank

§  Lie on your front, your forearms on the floor, and elbows under your shoulders.

§  Push up until your whole body is off the floor, expect your toes and forearms. Keep your back as parallel to the floor as possible by contracting your abdominals to protect your lower spine, and hold.

§  If you find this too difficult, try resting on your knees until you are stronger.

3.    Mountain climbers

§  Start in an upright press-up position (hands on the floor directly underneath your shoulders, body lifted off the ground).

§  Lift your right foot off the floor and bring your knee up towards your chest, then return foot to the start position. Repeat the movement with your left leg.

§  Alternate the movements between your left and right legs for the allocated time.

Don’t pause between reps – keep the movement fluid and dynamic
