45 Minute Bodyweight Strength Circuit Workout + Cardio Tabata

I was thinking about something the other day. It was the fact that I felt like I secluded myself to just “food” blogging. FOOD FOOD FOOD FOOD. When I first started FFF, it was very much so a “healthy living” blog, where I talked about all different aspects of my life. Over the past 4 years it has morphed into a very healthy recipe focused site. Nothing wrong with that….at all, but in all honesty I miss talkin’ fitness on this thing!

So much of my life revolves around healthy living and fitness, but I have for some reason shunned that out of this outlet. I set a goal for myself at the beginning of 2014 and it was to bring more fitness onto FFF.

So, who is ready for Get Fit Thursdays!?

Get Fit Thursdays with FitFoodieFinds.com

Today I am sharing a 45 minute, full-body bodyweight strength circuit workout. Jeeze that is a mouthful! In this workout you will hit upper-body, lower-body, and even get in some cardio, with those heart-pumping tabatas in between.

In case you would live more clarification on this workout, I have a detailed description of each exercise below this image.
