30 Minutes of bodyweight work

Today is a running off day.  Instead, I worked out for roughly 30 minutes utilizing mainly bodyweight.  I performed 3 sets of the circuit listed below.  It's always interesting when I start to add the cross training back in because of the lack of strength, but also the lack of mobility in my joints and muscles initially.  I think as much as I can benefit from the strength work, the mobility and range of motion to be gained in my hips and hamstrings might be even more important:

30 jumping jacks
5 push ups
25 high knees
7 burpees
10 crunches
7 squats
5 push ups
10 crunches
5 push ups
7 squats
30 jumping jacks
1 minute wall sit
5 push ups
25 high knees

I did not take rest periods between the exercises nor at the end of each set.  I did 3 continuous sets.  After that, I followed it up with 3 farmer's walks with about 3-35 lbs. of water in buckets.  I walked those to failure and rested 1 minute between 3 sets of that as well.

The whole workout took about 28-32 minutes, I didn't time it exactly.  I do know that with very little space or equipment, I got in a strong full body workout.
