Circuit Workout

Remember that time I said I had good intentions of posting a workout, and then my laptop died?

Well, now that lil’ m-swag is here, I’m holding true to my promise.

This is the workout I did with my awesome client, and we were both a hot mess by the end!

Each circuit consists of 15 reps of 3 different exercises (completed back to back with no – or minimal – rest) three times through.

*Complete circuit one all three times before moving to circuit two, and so on.

CIRCUIT ONE

  • pike pushups

  • jump squats

  • overhead tricep extension with light to medium dumbbell (both hands on weight)

CIRCUIT TWO

  • Bosu pushups side to side (each side counts as one rep)

  • burpees with pushup and jump

  • tricep kickbacks with a medium dumbbell (should be challenging for sure!)

CIRCUIT THREE

  • squat curl press with medium to heavy dumbbells

  • tuck jumps

  • tricep dips

CORE CIRCUIT (you can do this circuit 1-3 times depending on core strength and time)

  • 60 second plank (if it feels easy or like it could be more challenging, try alternating leg lifts)

  • 60 second windmills (from pilates – hurt so good)

  • 60 second side plank (each side)

  • 60 second boat pose

I hope you enjoy this workout as much as we did!

Have a FABULOUS night – and get excited because tomorrow is Friday Eve! 🙂

Much love!

    I think you should post a video of yourself doing these moves … I don’t know what half of them are haha! 😉 Ok, that’s not true … I know several of the moves. But what are Bosu pushups??

    I need to do some workout videos to explain, for sure! The Bosu pushups use the Bosu trainer (looks like half a stability ball) – I put one hand on the Bosu, one hand on the ground, pushup, then switch sides. That added angle definitely kicks it up a notch!
