Circuit Training and Interval Training Workout


There is only a few more days left until the big day – New Year, and we all have to look our best and feel great!  Today’s workout is focused on the lower body butt, legs, abs and it will make your heartbeat skip very fast

, just as fast as it will make your fat melt.

This routine is divided into 2 parts, the first part is done for time and it’s circuit training, the second part is interval training with no breaks.

Always do a proper warm-up before starting to workout, it will prevent you from injury.

In this workout I will be using my timer, a set of dumbbells ( 20 lbs ) and a mat.
