This cardio and strength circuit training workout will build your all-around fitness, improve strength and increase your stamina. You don’t need much to complete this workout, it could even be done outside if you can measure out a 400 m route. Otherwise, it can be done in the gym with just a few pieces of equipment.

Cardio and Strength Circuit Training Workout

For this workout you will need 1 kettlebell for the swings, if you don’t have a kettlebell feel free to use a dumbbell. You’ll need a plyometric box, bench or step with risers for the box jumps and a dumbbell or kettlebell for the walking goblet lunges.

I ran the 400 m repeats on the treadmill at 8.0 mph so they took just under 2 minutes each. I know I could have run them a little faster so I’m going to do this workout again next week and run them at 8.5 mph. You should be pretty wiped by the end of each 400 m run. The tough part comes when you hop right back into the strength training circuit.
