Circuit Training for a Tone Body

Circuit training is a form of high-intensity aerobics. Circuit training is designed to mix in cardio, endurance and strength building. When one circuit or exercise is complete, the next one begins.  The time between exercises in circuit training is short 1-2 minutes depending on the exercise. The key to circuit training is to move quickly to the next exercise. Circuit training can be one of the best ways to get your body toned because it combines cardio and strength training without weights.

Toning exercises are one of the best ways to get that great body you desire. The term toned reefers to the body becoming more fit, lean, with low levels of body fat, noticeable muscle definition and shape, but not significant muscle size.

1. Jumping Jacks

This is a great exercise to get your heart beat going. Do 25 traditional jumping jacks with full extension. Don’t skimp on going full out. Start your workout off right and really go for it.

2. 3-Point Kicks

This is an great core, leg and butt exercise. First  start with your feet staggered, right foot in front and your hands up . Kick your right leg out in front of you, then kick to the right side of you, and then leaning forward, kick your right foot behind you. Think of yourself as kicking 3 people. One in front of you, one to the side of you and one behind you. This will engage your core as you it will be hard to balance yourself. Repeat with your right leg for 45 seconds, then move to your left leg for 45 seconds.

3. 180 Squat Jump

These are also considered jump 180 squats. Start with a  normal squat, but instead of just coming strait back up, you’re going to explode in a high jump and do a 180 degrees turn. You should start facing one way and end facing the opposite direction. Make sure you land with your feet in the same squat position that you started with. Make your jumps strong and explosive and keep your core engaged the whole time. Repeat for 2 minutes.

4. Sit Ups

After the jump squats this is going to help you lower your heart rate a little. These sit ups should be the old fashioned sit ups. Try to do  as many times as you can in the 2 minutes. Have a workout partner sit on your feet or put them under the couch.

5. Push ups 

Traditional push ups are one of the best exercises you can do. If you are having trouble doing push ups try starting on your knees and then work towards traditional push ups in future workouts. If you are looking for a tougher workout try adding more advanced push ups.
