10/30/2014 High Intensity workout

That's me after 1 workout
My whole workout from start to finish just now was only 25 minutes.  I am dripping sweat more than after a 45 minute run.  High intensity workouts with virtually no rest are a great way to get fit and burn calories.  My workout consisted of two sets of the following circuit below.  There is literally no rest between exercises and only sixty seconds rest between sets.  I did each exercise for forty-five seconds (Farmer's walk was more like 1:30 because of distance).  

Pull ups
Air squats
Push ups
Box jumps
Planks
Farmer's walk
Lunges w/twist

I started with a five minute jog to warm up.  I then did the two sets of the circuit and finished with a five minute jog.  My total workout was 25 minutes on the nose.  It is my first strength training work in awhile, but I was pleased with my strength.  My plan is to do some strength work every week once or twice.
