My Saturday Circuits

Saturday, August 04, 2012

So I said that I'd blog soon about how I'm staying at home and not going back to China. Well, I don't really feel like writing out a big explanation right now, and maybe I will later, but the short version is, since my dad had a stroke a few weeks ago, I feel more comfortable staying home for the next few months to help my family adjust.

ANYWAY, one of the many many things that staying home means is that I can work out at a gym. I'm planning to start working with a trainer in a few weeks, so that's exciting, but in the meantime I've been more or less sticking to this routine: Body Pump 3x/week, Zumba or Kickboxing 4-5x/week, circuit training on Saturdays.

And I've gotta say, I'm PROUD of the circuit I created for myself because it's HARD and I love it. So I thought I'd share it with you all! Enjoy :)

Heavy ropes - 30 s (if no ropes available, high knees, plank jacks, or some other plyo move)
Kettlebell swings - 10-12
Medicine ball slams - 10-12

Turkish get ups - 8
Burpees - 12
Reverse plank - 30 s

Box Jumps - 30 s
Walk-out pushups - 12
Wall squat w/ medicine ball - 60s

I followed it up with a 60 minute Zumba class so I'm kind of dead right now.
