Prevention's 3-2-1 Circuit Workout

Chris Freytag
Year Released: 2005

Categories: Circuit Training (cardio and weights)


This workout consists of a warm-up, a cool-down, and 6 circuits comprised of 3 minutes of cardio, 2 minutes of strength/weight work and 1 minute of core work. It is a fun workout and time flies because each segment is so short.

The workout is instructed by Chris with two background exercisers. Austin shows beginner modifications and does low impact through all the cardio sections. Michelle (who is the fitness editor for Prevention Magazine) shows advanced options. The segments are as follows:

Circuit 1- Legs
The cardio for this section is made up of standard aerobic moves such as v-steps, heel presses, jacks and hamstring curls.

Circuit 2 - Chest
The cardio for this section is boxing and kickboxing.

Circuit 3 - Butt
The cardio for this section is sports related with moves from soccer and baseball.

Circuit 4 - Back
The cardio for this section is latin dance inspired.

Circuit 5 - Arms
Boot-camp style cardio with jump roping.

Circuit 6 - Shoulders
Power Yoga

There are also 2 segments on the DVD hosted by Michelle on Accupressure relief for common problems and 5 moves for a better night's sleep. The dvd is broken down so you can play each segment individually, but you can't program it to play in any order.

Instructor Comments:
Cues very well. Very perky and enthusiastic.
