Easy Home Workout

Working out doesn’t need to be complicated and it certainly doesn’t have to be boring. In fact, switching on your favourite music and picking up a skipping rope is all it takes to burn some serious calories. No skipping rope? No worries, you can improvise with that too! Have a go at this quick circuit to get your heart rate up and start seeing and feeling the results.

  • 30 seconds fast skipping (if you don’t have a rope, use the same motions with your arms as if you did, it’s still going to work!)
  • 10 pushups
  • 45 seconds fast skipping
  • 15 squat jumps
  • 60 seconds skipping
  • 10 Burpees

Rest for 20 seconds rest and repeat five times!

Record your time after completing the full circuit then try and beat it by 20 seconds the next day. Aim to complete the circuit 4-6 times a week and squeeze in a 30-60-minute walk on your ‘active’ rest days.
