Planet Fitness 30 Minute Circuit Workout Variations
If you are a member of Planet Fitness health club, you are probably familiar with the 30-minute workout circuit. If not, you can read my blog post about creating the same workout at home. The Planet Fitness Circuit At Home
If you do the Planet Fitness 30 minute circuit workout on a regular basis, I have some variation so you can give your body some muscle confusion. Muscle confusion is a concept that centers around one doing a variety of workouts. It is designed to provide that one place different demands on the body so that the body needs to continue to adapt without getting used to the same exercise plan.
Below are my Planet Fitness 30-minute circuit workout variations:
- Do the circuit twice so you will work out for one hour
- Work on your arms twice and omit your legs in the 30-minute circuit
- Omit your shoulders and arms and work your legs twice in the 30-minute circuit
- The workout calls for 12 reps instead do 20 reps in the 30-minute circuit
- Do the circuit as is but do abdominal exercises instead of the steps
This is the Planet Fitness circuit plan that eliminates the steps and adds in core exercises. You will need a mat, weight or medicine ball.
