Cool Core Circuit:

Track Workout:

Hi all, hope you are all surviving your midterms. I personally believe the best way to stay productive during a busy time is exercise your body when you are not exercising your mind. I hope this workout will keep you all on your productive toes.

Ladder workouts can be a fun workout because they always seem to fly by. As you’re working on one interval, your mind is distracted because you’re thinking about the next.
