Bodyweight Toning Workout

If you're looking for a fresh workout as spring approaches--you're in luck! Here is a bodyweight toning workout that you can perform circuit-style (moving from one exercise, to the next to the next). The workout can be done at home, while traveling or at the gym, and will provide an invigorating stimulus for both beginner and advanced trainees. Advanced trainees can simply add more sets and reps as needed to increase the challenge. Let's get to the workout!

The Plan.

Begin each workout with a 5-minute cardio warmup. You can do jumping jacks, climb stairs, pedal a stationary bike, or even vacuum your house. Anything to get your blood pumping! 

Perform all 8 exercises, one after the other with as little rest as possible between each one.

If you're a beginner, you can call it a day.

If you've been exercising, try two rounds.

If you're pretty advanced, try three rounds.

Have fun!
