I know it’s a huge cliche, but I’m going to say it anyway: I can’t believe August is almost over! I’ve had so much fun digging up these Back to (old) School workouts this month. There have been so many great memories of fun times filming the workouts.
But you want to hear something crazy?
I don’t remember this low impact floor workout at all. Like. At all.
I pulled up the raw file because I liked the title and it fit in with what I wanted to post today (bodyweight only, under 30 minutes, beginner-friendly, and full body), and when I started watching it, I was like, “Wow, this is a great workout. Did I really do this?” Ha, ha!
I’m going to assume that I was in a bit of a hurry – when I’m feeling pressured or stressed, I revert to very simple, straightforward workouts just like this one: a handful of complex exercises that work multiple body parts at once, performed in a circuit – usually ten reps each and three times around the circuit.
You just can’t go wrong with a workout like that. You get your high heart rate cardio for fat loss, your body part strengthening exercises for upper back, chest, abs and glutes, and some core stability training as a nice little bonus. Boom! In less than 30 minutes, you’re fit and healthy and on your way to the rest of your day.
This workout is very easy to set up for yourself, or you can follow along with the full length video below.
