Intense Workouts - APECS Gym

 

We’ve already taken a look at an introductory home workout session to keep you active during lockdown and you can take a look at that here. This article is aimed more at the regular gym goers who are missing those workouts and on the lookout for something a little more intense!

 

If like many of us, you don’t have any weights at home, then you’re in a position where bodyweight exercises are your only option. Fortunately there are a number of great bodyweight exercises that can give you a fantastic workout and keep your body in shape whilst you’re not going to the gym.

 

Circuit 1 - Dynamic Pyramid

 

This one gives you a great full body workout and depending on your level, you should be aiming for between 3 and 7 sets of the full workout. The aim is for no rest between different exercises, but to have a rest of up to 2 minutes between sets.

40 High Knees

 

30 Mountain Climbers

Circuit 2 - Rapid Attack

 

This is another circuit that will make you burn - in a good way! This one includes press ups to work on your upper body too. The aim of the game with this one is to go as fast as you can, whilst still keeping proper form. The same rules apply, you should be aiming for between 3 and 7 sets of the full workout.
