Circuits and Intervals at Home

Chris Freytag is a health and fitness coach, author, mom and creator of Get Healthy U. It’s a website that includes easy-to-follow workout ideas that can be done right in your own home. She stopped by with workout ideas to embrace circuits and intervals at home.

Interval workout: 
 
Warm up 1-2 Minutes
1. Squat to Back rolls: to warm up the lower body and the spine.  Warm ups are all about mobility - mobilize the joints and wake up muscles.
2. Skipping in place:  Warms up the calves, legs, shoulders and gets the heart beat elevated.
