Body weight circuits can be a great workout. They can strengthen and tone muscles, but also blast some calories.
What is this “hands down” circuit about? Basically you place your hands on the ground and they don’t come off it.
How it Works:
Do this workout in the comfort of your own home, in a hotel room, the gym, or even outside. Get into a plank position and perform each exercise back to back with no rest, performing as many repetitions as possible in either 30 or 45 second increments. That’s it! Be sure to keep proper plank alignment with hips down in line with the shoulders.
Mt. Climbers: Drive right knee towards the chest then quickly switch legs.

Half Burpee: Jump or step the feet up towards the hands and then back into the plank position.
Walking Plank: Drop down onto right forearm, then the left forearm. Press the right arm all the way back up and then the left. Can drop to the knees for modification.
