Jillian Michaels loves mixing things up in the gym. The fitness expert and trainer, who has her own workout app called My Fitness by Jillian Michaels, frequently shares her workouts on Instagram. And while some are best reserved for fitness pros, this medicine ball circuit that she shared on Sept. 11 is a good one for all fitness levels.
Jillian starts with medicine ball throwdowns, then transitions to push-ups on the medicine ball. She then does forward lunges while throwing the medicine ball to each side. She follows that with a medicine ball wall toss and squat, then standing woodchops against the wall. Jillian said to do each move for 30 seconds for four rounds, with one minute of rest in between each round.
The best part about this circuit is that you can customize it to fit your fitness level. If you need to modify the push-ups, you can. You can also adjust the weight of the medicine ball. Plus, you only need one piece of equipment!
Give this HIIT circuit a try next time you're looking to mix up your cardio and strength training at the gym.
