Body Weight Blast

There's not a day I've ever heard anyone say: I regret that workout. 

Even if you didn't feel like it before you started, after 30 mins of exercise you feel lighter, brighter, stronger and refreshed. My favourite type of training has always been high intensity, circuit style. The kind where you can give it your all, feel super sweaty and satisfied and it's only taken up 45 minutes of your day. Whether you train to get stronger in the gym, run a marathon or enjoy yoga body weight exercises can complement many programmes. Training the whole body in one session is not only efficient but explosive and dynamic - meaning bordem isn't on the agenda. 

I love snooping Instagram and Pinterest and attending new classes for some fresh ideas so here I've put together my fave routine this month for when time is short and endorphins are needed. (That'll be everyday then.)
