I am here to deliver my High Intensity Circuit workout from this morning. This workout is no joke. Get ready to sweat!
I have demonstrated some of the moves you might not know below.
Push Ups – self explanatory but I recommend doing them on your toes until your body gives out on you and then drop to your knees to complete the set. You’ll be surprised at what your body can do!
Plank Jacks – get into plank position and take legs in and out like the lower half of a jumping jack.
Plie Squat w/ Lateral Raise – squat with legs wide apart, lift arms straight out to your sides on the way up.
Dumbbell Rows – with one leg in front of the other, bend at the hips. Bend your elbow, keep it close to your side and pull up like you are starting a lawn mower.
Knee Touch Jumps – Jump into the air like a frog and touch your knees. Repeat quickly.
180 Degree Squat Jumps – do a regular squat and as you come up jump and turn your body 180 degrees.
Oblique Crunch – Raise your right leg in as you crunch up to the right side. Extend your leg straight out as you lower down. Complete 15 on the right side before moving on to the left.
Circuits are my absolute favorite type of workout. They BLAST calories because there is VERY LITTLE rest and they get results. The time flies by since you move quickly from one movement to the next. I recommend gathering all the equipment you will need before beginning the workout so you don’t lose momentum in the middle. I used a set of 10 and 15 pound dumbbells, a 30 pound barbell, a mat, and a jump rope.
Give it a try and let me know what you think!
