What do you do when it’s 8:30 pm, you’ve worked two jobs, you cleaned your house, cooked dinner and sat on the couch with absolutely no energy to workout?
I know as soon as I sit on my couch – there’s no chance I’ll get back up. Our bodies are so used to running on empty for so long that when we finally sit and allow our bodies to catch up with us it is VERY difficult to pick the speed back up.
Today, my Apple Watch was taunting me and sending me not so subtle messages that it was time to get my butt in gear. I’m limited with workouts right now and I have done a few days of weight training at my limit so I decided to mix it up with circuits in my living room. And I know I’m not alone with feeling run down! So I created this quick and easy routine that gives you a great workout and gets you off the couch after a long day!
