You may be stuck indoors, but you don’t need a lot of space or special equipment to get a good all-body workout.

Build your own heart-pumping, muscle-building circuit by choosing 4 exercises from the cardio list and another 4 exercises from the strength list below.


  • jumping jacks
  • skipping
  • star jumps
  • jogging or marching in place
  • high knees
  • mountain climbers
  • stair climbing or step-ups
  • burpees or squat thrusts


  • squats or chair position
  • wall sits
  • sit-ups or crunches
  • hip lift or bridge position
  • triceps dips on a chair
  • lunges
  • plank or side plank
  • push-ups

Alternate each chosen cardio and strength exercise. Do each cardio exercise for 30 seconds and each strength exercise for 3 minutes.

Once you’ve completed the circuit, repeat it 2 to 3 more times.

*Only exercise if you have no symptoms and/or if a doctor has told you it’s safe to do so.
