As we’re nearing the end of the year and heading straight into all of the holiday hustle and bustle, I can’t help but reminisce over the peacefulness, sunshine, and beautiful weather we experienced on our trip to Hawaii! I can honestly say, it is one of the most gorgeous places I’ve ever been lucky enough to visit!
Plus, who doesn’t get motivated when you’re surrounded by the ocean, gorgeous views, and perfect beach weather?!
This workout is one of my favorite (and quick!) go-tos when you’re needing to:
- Get a workout IN.
- You’re short on time or short on equipment!
It just goes to show you don’t always need a big fancy gym to make some serious gains in your fitness journey!
The best part about this circuit is that it’s scalable for all levels. It’s the perfect bodyweight workout for beginners, and if you’re looking to push yourself, you can definitely make it more difficult!
Total Body 10 Minute Workout
Complete 15 reps of each move and perform as an AMRAP (as many rounds as possible). Completing 15 reps of EACH move for ALL moves = 1 round!
Set your timer for 10 minutes if you’re a beginner or 15-20 minutes if you’re wanting to really push yourself!
Walking Lunges (15 each leg): Self-explanatory!
Pop Squats: Lower your booty down into a squat, and then pop up into a jump! Go right back down into a squat!
Burpees: Start in a standing position, lower down into a frog squat, and keeping your hands on the ground, jump your legs back. Lower down and back up into a push up, jump or walk your legs back to your feet, stand, and jump!
Mountain Climbers (15 each leg): Start in a runner’s lunge, with your hands directly under your shoulders and one leg stretched back with the other tucked into your chest. Keep those abs tight, jump and switch legs midair! As soon as your feet touch the ground, do it again!
Froggy Pumps (do 30 total): Lying on the ground, press the soles of your feet together so your knees point outward. Slowly raise and squeeze your booty off the ground, similar to a bridge. Lower back down!
See how many rounds you can complete within your 10 minute time frame! Keep a mental note of how many you were able to do, and then next time, try and beat that number!
Bodyweight workouts are great for ALL levels, and especially when you’re on the move or traveling! (Like I know so many of you will be doing this holiday season!)
Try this one out and let me know which move was your favorite!
