Gina’s Home Circuit Workout
Use a jump rope and jump 100 times. Have fun with it: use both legs, jump while running in place, or challenge yourself by jumping on one leg. No matter what variation you prefer, get in 100 jumps.
25 wide-leg flutter kicks
Lie on the ground with your hands under your glutes. Bring one leg up towards the sky, at about a 60- to 70-degree angle, then lower down while simultaneously bringing your other leg towards the sky. As one leg lowers, the other lifts in a scissor motion.
25 diamond push-ups off your knees
Start in the top of a push-up position with your hands forming a diamond, directly under your chest with the tips of your index fingers and thumbs touching. Lower your knees to the ground. As you inhale, lower your chest towards the ground, bending your elbows out to the sides. Exhale to straighten your arms to the starting position and repeat.
10 lunges superset with knee to chest
Start in a standing position with your hands on your hips for stability. Step back with one foot into a lunge position. Put your weight in the heel of your front foot as you return to the standing position and bring your knee to your chest. Repeat the movement by dropping back into the lunge position, then bring your knee to your chest. Repeat movement until you have done 10 on each side.
10 wide squats superset with shoulder press
Grab dumbbells in each hand and in line with your ears and palms facing away from you. Stand with your feet slightly wider than shoulder-width apart and toes turned out. Push your glutes back and lower towards the ground in a squat position, until you are parallel to the ground. As you stand back up to the starting position, press your dumbbells over your head to the top of a shoulder press. As you lower the dumbbells back down, simultaneously return to the squat position and repeat movement.
