Top 10 Circuit Training Exercises For Overall Fitness


Hold a dumbbell or barbell across your shoulders on a solid box, step, or bench.

Hold a dumbbell or barbell in each hand and bend at the hips 45 degrees.  Lift the weights straight up to your chest with a flat back, shoulders back, and chest up.  

Bodyweight Squats

Plant your feet shoulder-width apart on the floor. Lower yourself to the ground while pushing each heel into the floor with your chest up. 

Shoulder Press

Stand tall with your feet hip-width apart and hold a dumbbell or barbell at your shoulders.

Jumping Jacks

Jump your feet shoulder-width apart and stretch your arms over your head with bent elbows.  

Romanian Deadlift

Stand with your feet hip-width apart and a dumbbell or barbell in front of your hips.


Put your palms flat on the floor and push up on your toes or knees. Point your toes down so your foot bottoms face up while on your knees to maintain form. 

Glute Bridges

Lift your hips and butt off the ground to align your chest, hips, and knees. Squeeze your glutes for added effect!

Triceps Dips

Move away from the bench so your butt is in the air and you're on your heels. Bow your elbows behind you, not to the side, to lower yourself.  


Engage your core, squeeze your glutes, and stand upright. Distribute your weight equally over your forearms and toes. Keep for the time set.
