What fitness equipment do I need? + Fat burning Abs circuit

I created this 10 exercise ab circuit when I was injured earlier this year and could not run or walk for a few weeks. I was able to complete this workout at home with very litte equipmnet required.

For anyone starting their fitness journey I recommnded 4 small pieces of equipment to invest in that will enhance your workout. They can be used for so many diffreent exercises, easily transported / fit in the boot of your car (and I have a small vehicle!) and inexpensive in comparison to a gym membership.

Build your workout toolkit with the following:

1) Set of dumbells

I use 2 kgs, but find what weight works for you. I recomen buying a smaller weight to start with and increaing to a larger amount in time. I purchased these at Rebel Sport.

2) Medicine ball

Mine is 4kg and purchased at Rebel Sport. A medicine ball is so versatile and can be incorporated into various full body movements and exercises.

3) Skipping rope

I bought mine from Kmart. Theres no different between a cheap rope and expensive rope, they serve the same jump over!

4) Yoga mat

Get a good one, they will last alot longer than a cheap flimpsy one. Check out LuluLemon.

If you dont have any of the above, my advice is to improvise! Don't hold back on a workout just beacuse you dont feel set up, you'll never start.

If you don't have the weights, use a tin of corn in each hand.

No yoga mat, use a towel.

No medicine ball, use a heavy cook book.

No skipping rope, find a medium length rope around the house.

Sounds silly but these tricks will do the job. Buy one thing at a time and gradually build your toolkit.

Now for the workout.
