For her first Instagram workout of 2021, Kelsey Wells, a NASM-certified personal trainer and creator of the SWEAT app's PWR programs, shared a full-body circuit you can do with minimal equipment in a room of your choice. The point of a circuit format is that you complete the series of exercises one after the other with little to no rest in between. Best of all, it can be quick and effective if you are running short on time.
Make sure you warm up beforehand. In the video above, you'll see Wells demonstrate each move inspired by her PWR at Home workouts. You'll do three rounds of the following exercises meant to challenge your upper body, lower body, and core:
- Deadlift using a kettlebell (or a single dumbbell): 50 seconds
- Commando: 50 seconds
- Jump squat: 50 seconds
Wells doesn't indicate how much rest you should take in between each round, but 30 seconds to one minute to steady your heart rate is a good place to start. Once you're done with the three full-body circuit rounds, you'll do a burnout: one minute of incline pushups, one minute of decline mountain climber to glute kickback, and one minute of bench hops. You'll need a sturdy surface for all of these.
