Workout of the Week: Intermediate Circuit (Minimal equipment)

Often people tell me that they do not have time to get to the gym for various legitimate reasons, but you do not need to go to a gym to get fit. You can do this workout with minimal equipment (or skip the ones below that require equipment) and still get a challenging workout.

This is a workout that you can do at home with very little equipment and be in the intermediate level of fitness. It is a basic circuit that features a full body mix of exercises, with only dumbbells and a door pullup bar.

You can find this equipment for very little money at stores such as WalMart, Target, or even on Ebay. If you are serious about your health and fitness, you have to find the time to train -- even just for 10-15 minutes a day.
