The Ultimate Boredum Busting Workout: 45-minute Super Circuit Routine

For the past few weeks, my attention span at the gym has been, well, ZERO. Because of this, I have had to be extremely creative when it comes to keeping my workouts both interesting and challenging. One rainy day last week when I was feeling especially ADD, the thought of completing 30+ minutes on the treadmill made me squirm. Hence this insane workout that I am about to share.

I am pretty sure that the lady working out next to me thought I was a crazy person {or just really hyped up on coffee)  as I kept switching from the treadmill to the weights about 5-6 times. But honestly: this routine kicked my butt in the best way possible and will whip you into shape in NO time. I was dripping in sweat after the first 15 minutes and worked every. single. muscle.
