Video - Circuit Training Round 2 Routine for Abs and Total Body

Category: Fitness    

This is round 2 of my circuit training series that is easily done at home or smaller gyms. No gym machines are required to do this routine. I suggest doing this for four rounds if you do not plan on doing any other training on the day you do this routine. If you do some weight training before then I would say 3 rounds. Good luck!

At home workout ideas and equipment to stay in shape

Category: Fitness    

I haven’t posted a workout or fitness routine in a few weeks, I have been slacking I know. I have been focusing a bit more on running lately and just kind of fell off the wagon (see, we all do it) but in the mean time I have been taking time to do very simple at home workouts that don’t require any machines.
