Home Bodyweight Circuit Workout

Here a simple but effective strength bodyweight circuit you can do from the comfort of your home. Perform the below exercises 3-4 times. To get the most out each exercise, you want to ensure you are going to near failure with each exercise.

If you find any of the bodyweight exercises to easy, try using advance-training methods like Time Under Tension (doing the exercise slower), Pause-Reps (pause at the top/bottom of a movement), 1+1/4 or 1+1/2 Reps (do one full rep and then followed by a pulse or half of the full exercise), Pulses (doing a smaller range of motion on the hardest part of the exercise).
