Sue's At Home Workout: Part 2

This is comprehensive, TOTAL body workout that you can do at home, while travelling or incorporate into your regular gym routine.  This particular workout requires dumbbells and body weight only as equipment, and is great for any fitness level.  I have provided both a low and moderate/high level workout.  If you really want to challenge yourself, try and do these as quickly (yet with proper form) as you possibly can.  Those who like an extra challenge can always vary the type of push-ups and/or hold on to a pair of dumbbells while doing any of the leg exercises.

This is a very simple type of circuit, but if you do it quickly and intensely, you are sure to feel the rewards of a pumping heart and sweaty face.  Enjoy!
