This workout is my favorite kind – super simple, and yet, oh, so challenging! The workout structure is the simple part, meaning that it’s uncomplicated: five exercises, we do each one for five reps, and the whole circuit five times. Boom! Easy!
The exercises are where it gets a little tough. 🙂 I deliberately chose single-sided exercises for this workout video because working bilaterally always reminds me that one side of my body is stronger than the other (which is exactly why I do workouts like this – to strengthen my non-dominant side). These five exercises will challenge your balance and stabilizer muscles, as well as strengthening your abs and glutes.
