Often when people don’t have access to a gym like when on vacation or when travelling due to work, this simple 20- minute floor workout circuit is the best way out. The Battlefit Floor Workout Circuit also makes a great way for beginners to get to working out.
This workout is not for BUILDING MUSCLE MASS, but it definitely works to keep the body limber, avoids muscle atrophy, and get a good spike in the Basal Metabolic Rate – keeping you lean and fit.
Ready for THE BATTLEFIT FLOOR WORKOUT? Here’s how it goes:
Every exercise is done for 30 seconds followed by a 30 second rest period and this cycle is repeated for 4 sets upto 20 minutes.
Push-ups / Knee Push-Ups(for people who are weaker)
Repeat this loop for 4 sets upto 20 minutes. And remember, be honest to yourself and try to get as many full range repetitions as you can in the 30 seconds you have in each exercise – push yourself… you have 30 seconds to rest it out after, remember?
So go for it. Try this out. And do let me know your experience.
