This week's Free Fitness Friday: Full-body Bench Circuit Workout

Full-body Bench Circuit Workout

How to perform this Full-body Bench Circuit Workout: 

This workout is very simple to set up (all you need is one exercise bench) and can be done in any timeframe that you have (anywhere from 15-30 minutes), but should be done at a fast-pace and with minimal rest. You can even fit this workout in at the end of a workout for an extra calorie burn! Complete all exercises in a row for 1 round, rest for 1 minute, then begin with the first exercise for round 2. Complete as many rounds as you can in the time you have! (Try for 3-5 rounds!)

As always, be sure to warm up before beginning the first round and cool down and stretch when you are finished.

Round 1:

  • 10 left leg bench cross-overs
  • 10 right leg bench cross-overs
  • 20 jumping donkey kicks (10 each side)
  • 20 reverse hyper-extensions
  • 20 leg lifts into hip raises off the bench
  • 40 "hot-seats" (quick squats)

Check out this short video to see how each exercise is performed and to ensure that you have proper form throughout each exercise!

And that's a wrap! Short and sweet workout that is sure to make you sweat! Now, let's get moving and welcome the weekend with open arms!!

Enjoy your workout and have a wonderful weekend ahead!
