"This is what I like to call a quick-n-dirty strength/cardio circuit. Most people will be able to get this done within or around 15 minutes." —Tony Gentilcore, C.S.C.S., co-founder Cressey Sports Performance
How to do it:
Do one goblet squat, followed by 10 push-ups. Then do two goblet squats, followed by 9 push-ups. Do goblet squats in ascending fashion until you get to 10, and the push-ups in descending fashion, until you get to one.
Make it easier:
• Use lighter weights for the goblet
• Do modified push-ups off an elevated surface like a bench or chair. You can even do them off a wall (the least challenging version of the push-up).
Make it harder:
• Add a third exercise that stays constant throughout. For example:
1 Goblet squat, 10 push-ups, 3 burpees
2 Goblet squats, 9 push-ups, 3 burpees
3 Goblet squats, 8 push-ups, 3 burpees
and so on
