Quick Up & Down Circuit Workout

I have put together this circuit workout and have had several patients request I post it to my blog. With a circuit workout, you do not take a rest/break until  you have completed all the exercises in the set.  Between sets you do get a rest and then you begin the following set of exercises.  Once you have completed all the sets of exercises, if you are able to, you will repeat the circuit an additional 2-4 times.

Starting out, this may be impossible to complete.  Do not get discouraged!  Do what you are able to do and each day try to perform one more exercise, set, rep, etc.  Start slow and gradually work your way up to completing one circuit of the workout and then work on attempting completing multiple circuits.

Good luck and enjoy getting more healthy and fit!
