Here is an interesting article comparing the effectiveness of cardio workouts and strength workouts. Strength wins out in most but not all cases.

And here’s a great circuit workout to try. Many of my clients have commented that they liked this one!

10 Pushups
20 Box Jumps
20 Bodyweight Squats
20 Mountain Climbers
Run or Row 400m
10 Burpees
20 Plate Overhead
20 Deadball Slams
20 Step Ups
Run or Row 400m
10 Reverse Crunches
20 Sideways Lunges
20 V sit plate touches
20 Lunges
Run or Row 400m

Repeat

Each circuit could take nearly 20 minutes. Run through it 2 or 3 times for a very solid 40 or 60 minute workout.

Enjoy!
