Workouts: Pinterest Circuits and Cardio

I hope that everyone is having a great weekend!

I don’t know about you, but I love Pinterest. I have found so many recipes and workouts that I want to try, in addition to some DYI craft projects and ideas for the holidays! It’s great! Today while I was searching the site, I found some circuit workouts that I want to try. As I mentioned before, I love finding new circuit workouts that you can do at home, since I do not currently belong to a gym. I wanted to share these three workouts, which you can find on my Pinterest Health & Fitness board here.


Workout #1: Cardio/Strength – Repeat for a total of 2-3 circuits

Workout #2: World’s Fastest Workout – Only takes 4 minutes!

Workout #3: Tone It Up Legs Pyramid – Repeat 1x through

I also found a link to this FitSugar site, which lists 7 different workouts for the treadmill. Personally, I am a huge fan of pyramid workouts that involve changes in incline. Here is a 40-minute hill workout that I plan on trying that includes off the treadmill leg work:

Time (min.) Speed (mph) Incline (%) Leg Work (off treadmill)
0:00-5:00 3.0 1.0
5:00-10:00 4.0 6.0
10:00-11:00 Alternating front lunges
11:00-16:00 3.5 8.0
16:00-17:00 Squats
17:00-22:00 3.0 10.0
22:00-23:00 Alternating reverse lunges
23:00-28:00 2.5 12.0
28:00-29:00 Plie squats
29:00-34:00 2.0 12.0
34:00-40:00 2.0 1.0
