A simple circuitYou're walking, you're stretching, you're starting to get in the groove, so now Burke has a simple routine to step things up a bit. "Doing at-home circuit training is a good way to kick things off," she says. "This way, you do not need to learn how to use all the fancy gym equipment right off the bat and you can push yourself to your limit." Here's what to do:
Circuit: 5 rounds as fast as possible
15 jumping jacks
10 walking lunges
10 mountain climbers
