5 Move No Equipment Full Body Circuit!

NEMs! There is truly no excuse for not getting moving when all you need is… NOTHING! Here is my no equipment, no excuses workout! It is composed of 5 moves that will hit your entire body. The first is a wall sit with heel raise. Be sure to stay flat against the wall and get nice and low. The second is a plank jumping jack. This is a very challenging one so to modify, jump with just hands or just feet. Or just work on perfecting that plank. Third is the side oblique crunch with a scissors kick. Here, try and remember to stay on one single plane and hold that crunch statically. If this is too difficult, just work on the crunch. Bend the knees for further modification. Fourth is the tabletop crunch. This one is tough and I do show a modification in the video, however, if the modification I show is not sufficient, put the bum on the ground and perform the cross crunch from there. Lastly is the walkout pushup and single leg dead lift. When leaning down, pull the belly button in and hold your weight in your heel. Perform the push up, and while continuing to keep the core tight, walk back up, using just one leg to return to starting position. Really think about using the hamstring (the back of the leg) of the working leg to help you stand back up.

Playground Workout by Jules

Hi everyone! I am Jules, one of your two NEM National Fitness Professionals. I am so honored to be here as a model, consultant, motivator and anything else you can find a use for me for 🙂 Since we are moms, my guess is that many of us spend a significant amount of time on the playgrounds with our littles. Simply being outside is an energy booster, so I created a series of playground workouts that you can do while hanging out with the kids. Some things you will see are much harder than others, but most can be modified to work for you. Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions about what I share. i hope you enjoy this playground workout and keep checking for more! Get after it! xo
